Weight gaining dangers in winter

Now that the temperatures are dropping and there is less sunlight, the challenge to lose weight becomes more difficult.  One big reason is that the outdoor activities drop off dramatically in the winter.  Cutting your lawn on the weekends is a great calorie burner.  Going to the pool a couple times a week can be an amazing workout.  Think about climbing those steps to get to the top of the water slide.  Now think about doing that about 10 times.  Who needs a stairmaster!  Throw in there just the general swimming around after the kids and you have yourself quite the workout!

Since all of that has come to a screeching halt try not to worry.  There is nothing better than going for a walk/jog out in the cool fall air or crisp winter days.  That can be very motivating and you may end up going a lot further that you could when there is extreme heat.  Do some simple bodyweight exercises such as squats, lunges and pushups.  These can help break up the workout a bit and can boost your metabolism.  

Let me know how I can help you get through your winter.

Until next time…
