Tips for staying for this Fall

Tips For Staying Fit This Fall

Cooler weather is here, and I know that means many of us will start to worry about winter weight gain. We crave comfort food, sometimes it’s hard to find the motivation to head out in the cold (fuzzy socks and a warm bed always sound better!), and schedules start to get crazy and all of a sudden! I thought I would share a few tips that will hopefully help you stay on track with your goals.

Drink Water

Even though you are chilly, you still need to hydrate your body! Try to keep a glass of water next to you all day. This time of year is also a great time to infuse your water or add flavor to it.

Be Prepared

Leave your workout clothes out the night before. If you see them out in the morning, you are more likely to put hem on. And DO NOT let your workout clothes turn into your comfy clothes!

Work out

Now that you have your workout clothes on, make sure to work out! Walk outside, go to the gym, go for a run, go to Jazzercise, do a DVD at home. Rake leaves 🙂 Just make sure you are still moving.

Watch what you eat

We are going to start seeing candy, cookies, and desserts just about everywhere now. And it may be hard to resist. That’s why I suggest keeping a Balance Bar on hand (in your car, purse, somewhere close!). With Balance Bar, you can still indulge in decadent flavors like cookie dough and chocolate mint, but also have the balanced nutrition your body needs to stay energized and satisfied. Balance Bars are based on the 40-30-30 nutrition principle (40% of total calories from carbohydrates, 30% from protein and 30% from dietary fat). 40-30-30 is a proven formula developed by scientists to provide sustained, balanced energy and help satisfy hunger for longer.

  2. The be prepared tip is great. If I plan ahead and slip into my workout clothes right away I am ready to go and do not dread it lol.

  3. I FEEL LIKE A YOYO IN MY HOUSE SO WITH ALL THE UP AND DOWN AND TO AND FRO CLEAN AND COOK FEED EAT I GET EXERCISE ALRIGHT BUT I AM ALSO ON ALOT OF MEDICATION THAT MAY CAUSE DROWSINESS AND WHEN YOU MIX ALL THAT SAY THAT WELL I ALSO SLEEP SO FOR ME FITNESS IS “TIT FOR TAT”

  4. I choose “Be Prepared” as my favorite tip. It is so easy to put off exercise and other activities but when everything is ready and waiting for you, you don’t have to think about it but take advantage of your preparation and just go!

  5. One tip I have is to take advantage of the Autumn weather, and go for long walks every day. There’s just nothing like being able to stroll down a country road, looking at the changing foliage.

  6. My favorite tip is to stay active and work out. I have just started to embrace this about 2 weeks ago and I think it has made me feel sore but healthier.

  7. I think it’s great that you’re reminding people to drink water even when it’s cooler outside. If I forget to drink water, I start to get symptoms of dehydration pretty quickly. We stay healthy in the Fall by getting outdoors and walking the dog in the cooler weather. 🙂

  8. Thank you for all the tips for staying fit this fall from drinking more water for hydration even in the fall to getting more exercise to eating more nutritionally & just being being more aware of what we can do to help ourselves & family!

  9. Put the phone across the room and whenever it rings, go get it and walk with it for the length of the conversation.

  10. I love all your tips. I need to get motivated this fall to exercise. I am going to lay out my clothes so I can see them first thing in the morning.

  11. My “fitness” cannot call for actual exercise due to illness, but just simple stretching and mediation, gratefulness self talk, that helps immensely. Just saying positive thoughts out loud is mindbuilding and good for immune system, even though people probably think youre CrAzY!
    The water tip is so good. I absolutely despise water so flavoring helps. Essential oils, just a drop or two of the “edible” ones in water helps…lemon or orange. Also what helps me is chewing a half stick of gum to make my mouth water and want to drink water. I’d never get my “half my weight in ounces” recommendation down without these fit tricks!

  12. I appreciate all the great tips, especially remembering the importance of staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water even in cool weather.

  13. I have gained a ton of weight over the past few months and I need to start following these tips now! Working out and staying away from comfort food is pretty much a must. At the same time, I want to enjoy the holiday and indulge a little. I might have to try out a Balance Bar and see if it helps me resist the temptation! Thanks for sharing!

  14. It gets dark so early now. Makes it even harder to get motivated to go out after work and school to exercise. I’ve got to though. I’ve been packing on the pounds. Thanks for your tips!

  15. My weight has gone up and down since I became a Diabetic. My sugars are high I sleep. It is very hard for me to exercise when I am in pain & disabled. But I am constantly looking/reading for some tips that may help my situation! Not eating is not an option for me. I really used to love to run!
