Five ways to keep fit this winter
Winter is here!
The summer dresses have been nicely tucked away and the coats and woolies are out on display.
Its also a time period we need to work that extra bit harder to keep fit and warm. - As we all know, most of us can put on a lot of weight during winter!
This is mostly due to the cold and lazy days.
Here are some tips to help combat that "winter fall'.
TRAIN WITH A PARTNER OR GROUP:
Creating that accountability to someone, especially when its just easier to stay under the duvet for an extra hour. Train with someone with similar goals and that you know will straighten you up on those days you simply don't want to.
EAT A BALANCED DIET
Winter can cause depression to some people (Seasonal Affective Disorder - SAD) and people handle it differently.
It can affect your eating habit!
Overcome this by making sure you get a balanced diet!
If you can, try to prepare 5 small meals a day and fuel your body. - Overeating will only make you feel depressed and less motivated to get up and make a change.
