Watch out for winter ‘excuses’

Cold weather outdoor fitness tips

Watch out for winter ‘excuses’

You’ve heard it said many times ‘Health is wealth’. Nothing will ever taste as good as it feels to be FIT! (Except maybe Nutella?)  The worn out excuse of  ‘ I don’t have time’ needs to be kicked to the curb. From now until mid march, try your best not to listen to the sabateur in your head. We all have one. Here are some things you can do to make time for exercise:

  1. Exercise on your work breaks. Who said it needs to be a continuous hour? Walk + squat + walk + dips + walk + lunges etc.
  2.  Exercise while the kids are playing at the park. Use the picnic table or bench to do step-ups, dips, pushups and plank.
  3. Get up earlier. No, you won’t be more tired at the end of the day, you will have more energy! (Sleep in your workout clothes if you must)
  4.  Walk! A brisk walk is highly underrated. Add some hills and go with a friend or your stroller! Listen to an audio book or podcast.
  5.  Find a workout partner and be accountable. This is such a huge motivation!
  6.  Exercise in your living room. The place doesn’t matter, only the exercise does.
  7. Count your steps on your phone. Aim for a daily total of 10,000.
  8.  And finally, STOP making excuses. They are just mental blocks keeping you from being the BEST you can be! You’re worth the effort!  Just be the best version of your own self!
