Enjoy the Holidays at Your Richmond New Homes

Let’s face it: with all of the tasty goodies lying around your Richmond new homes, the holiday season can be a little harsh on the waistline. Though you don’t want to completely deny yourself the delicious treats, you should practice a little moderation. So, before you go overboard at your next gathering or party, keep in mind the following healthy holiday tips so that you can have fun this season without starting out the New Year full of regret.

Don’t Skip Meals: Though you think you’re saving calories for the big party later in the day, you’ll probably end up consuming more when you finally do eat.

Exercise Portion Control/Fill Up on the “Good for You Stuff”: Start out by filling your plate with the healthier offerings at the party, and then exercise portion control over the not-so-good-for-you treats.

Eat Slowly and Enjoy Your Company: Make sure to surround yourself with people who help you relax, and enjoy yourself. When your table is full of laughter and talking, you’re less likely to overindulge.

Don’t Forgo the Exercise: While this time is full of fun, family and friends don’t forget to make time for a little exercise. If you’re already on a program, then stick to it. If not, then ask your friends and family to join you on a walk after dinner, or find other ways to get moving.

While you’re out enjoying the season, don’t forget to stop by one of our beautiful communities for a tour. We have Richmond, Williams Bay, Poplar Grove and McHenry new homes to suit every buyer’s needs. And, if you hurry, you can still take advantage of our end-of-the-year incentives including new home prices and 10 percent off the base price of any new home!
