6 Ways to Stick To Your Fitness and Training Goals This Winter

With the winter’s cold weather and shorter days, it can be very tempting to hibernate. However, if you have resolved to be healthier, more active, and leaner in 2019, hibernating isn’t really an option.

Here are 5 simple tips to set you up for weight-loss success this cold season:

  1. Do Your Prep: If you usually workout in the morning, try to get everything ready the night before, from your breakfast to your gym bag. If you prefer working out in the afternoon or early evening, then make sure to pack a healthy snack for post-work energy. Remember: Preparation is half the battle.

  2. Invest in Winter Gear: One of the best ways to stay motivated in the colder seasons is to buy some new cold-gear attire. Layering is key during the winter, especially if you’re planning on exercising outside. Because most places become slippery with snow, ice, or rai, make sure you get the right footwear to prevent falls and injury.

  3. Find a Training Partner: If you find yourself becoming lazy during the colder days, a workout partner is the perfect way to ensure you stay on track. Join a few classes at your gym, or convince a friend to exercise with you. Not only will you get your workout in, but you’ll also get to socialize.

  4. Explore a New Hobby: Bringing some newness and excitement into your regular exercise routine is a great way to boost your motivation, so why not try a winter activity such as ice skating, skiing, or snowboarding?

  5. Detox Your Kitchen: With the end of the holidays and festivities, you’re bound to have some goodies leftover in your home. This is the perfect time to go through a kitchen detox, to scrub your space and home of any temptation. Instead, replace it with fresh produce and wholesome snacks. Remember: Out of Sight, Out of Mind.

  6. Enjoy The Seasonal Fruits and Vegetables: Seasonal fruits are extremely flavorful and packed full of antioxidants and nutrition. Why not make hearty, homemade soups out of vegetables such as carrots, parsnips, and winter squash? In addition, winter fruits such as pears, apples, and figs make for nutrient dense snacks that satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you full for longer.
