As the days get shorter and colder, it can be tempting to hibernate during the winter months. While a little R&R is okay, it’s important to stay active in order to maintain your health and energy levels over the long term. The following tips can help you keep moving forward:
Set mini, achievable goals for yourself. Goals such as “Im going to train 3x this week. My training days will be Monday, Wednesday and Friday”. Totally doable. You aren’t asking too much of yourself here. 3 x a week will keep you on track to your goals.
If its cold out, its probably not the best idea to wear those cute Booty shorts, not unless you like the chicken skin look when it’s 5 degrees out. Make sure to bring a change of shirt and another layer to pop on after the workout.
You know whats great about Winter? Winter warmer meals like stews and soup. Do you know whats great about winter warmer meals? They are easy to hide a tonne of veg and a tonne of protein in. And they are really delicious!!!
