Here are a few tips to help you stay motivated during the winter months.
To start, set a regular time to work out and stick to it. Maybe the busyness of the Fall has you skipping workout sessions. Exercise is cumulative. Every little bit adds up. Fifteen minutes in the morning plus another fifteen minutes in the afternoon equals thirty minutes of physical activity that day.
Physical activity doesn't have to be an hour of jumping up and down to a routine. It could be reading a magazine while walking on the treadmill. Dancing around the room, as you vacuum and clean, counts as exercise, also.
Talk to a friend or workout buddy even if you can't get to the gym with them each day. Use the telephone to keep each other motivated. When the weather leads you to slouch on the couch, phone a friend and get a pep talk until you jump up on your feet and get going.
Listen-you've worked mighty hard all year. Why throw it all away during the season of frivolity and food? It won't be easy to stay motivated, but friends can help. Stick to the routine as much as possible and you won't feel the after effects of a long indulgent holiday season - you'll be one step ahead when January rolls round too.
