Keeping trim this winter

It’s an age old excuse to exercise a little less and eat a little more over the winter months to build up that extra layer of insulation and keep you that little bit warmer. It may be tempting to fall back into the same trap, it makes life a little more indulgent and those cold, dark evening runs that little bit easier but make this year to ban the excuses. Think how much easier it will be in the New Year when you don’t have to have that new year’s resolution to lose the 6lbs you’ve put on over Christmas.

It can be easier said than done to drag yourself to the gym particularly as the nights get colder and darker and the warm, cosy sofa and television call to you. If you’re really struggling for some motivation, the best way to get yourself into gear is to get someone else involved so you have twice the will power to continue your regime.

When two become one

Doing your exercises with somebody else can be a great way to keep you motivated however, you need to find a friend you can rely on to push you rather than hinder you. There’s nothing worse than having somebody else’s excuses to add to your own and make you feel better about that afternoon cake or missed spinning class. If you don’t have anyone you can depend on to share the regime with then a

Enjoy yourself

It’s impossible to stick to anything if you don’t give yourself a break at some point. Over the winter months with the sweet treats of Halloween and Bonfire Night and the festive Christmas day feast you’re setting yourself up for failure if you try and avoid everything. Instead give yourself dates where you can eat and drink what you like. Save the splurges for special events or times when you can really appreciate them this way you won’t deprive yourself so much that you completely back fire.

Try something new today

It can be hard to stick to a fitness plan when it’s the same old routine week in week out. Try mixing your winter workouts up a little bit with some sports you’ve never tried before. Whether it’s a new class at the gym or a completely different activity trying something new can put the fun (and the motivation) back into the exercise regime.
