WORK ON GETTING YOUR SUMMER BODY IN WINTE
This morning when I woke up at 4.30am to get ready for work, I noticed a sudden change in the weather which made me realise winter is almost upon us. This colder change can affect our enthusiasm for our fitness and health goals. I always find the winter months the most difficult for maintaining motivation.
In order to combat this, I will often set some new goals and develop strategies like organising workout partners as a way to keep committed to my health and fitness.
My message for this issue is not to wait until you go off track but to start planning how you are going to keep your momentum going, now we are moving into a colder, more challenging season.
By taking steps now, you can fool-proof the next few months so that when spring hits you will be able to enjoy life to the max; that way when opportunities come your way you will be ready and fit to embrace them and seize the day.
So this year, instead of curling up on the couch and hibernating under the covers, why not take stock of past habits that have been holding you back and stick with the health and fitness plan?
I always like to say your summer body is made in winter during the colder months.
FOUR EASY TIPS TO KEEP MOTIVATED:
For me, I love being a fit and healthy mum and enjoy being able to do things with my children, especially in the warmer months when I can head outdoors.
Staying on top of my health even when it feels tough is worth it as life is way too short to let it pass us by.
