We’re now in full on “fall” mode but unfortunately, so is the weather. If you don’t take the initiative, the rain can quickly put a damper on your workout plans. These are a few tips and tricks to help you stick to fitness regimen when the seasons change.
Stick To It
It might be the most simple piece of advice here, but it is also often one of the most difficult to follow. It’s easy to start working out in the summer and even easier to feel good about yourself after going to the gym a few times a week. It also makes it that much easier to justify skipping your workout. Don’t fall into this trap! What starts as one “skip day” quickly turns into a week, which turns into two, and then a month. Before you know it, you’re back where you started. As difficult as it might be, it is important to try and tough it out to get your exercise in every day. If it’s too cold or rainy where you live, consider joining a gym to have a safe and secure space in which to exercise. Don’t give yourself any excuses because your health certainly isn’t.
3Weigh Yourself Once a Week
This list of tips for keeping weight off after losing it recommends weighing yourself regularly to help increase your motivation and mindfulness of your goals. The idea isn’t to beat yourself up, but to keep an eye on things and monitor your own progress. While we don’t recommend weighing yourself every single day and expect results, it is good to check in once a week and see how you’re doing.
