Staying Motivated During Winter 6x
Winter has well and truly settled in and getting motivated can be harder than it seems. It’s darker, colder, and many people just don`t feel the urge to get out of bed to go exercise. It’s that time of year when comfort food seems so much more tempting, and the urge to stay inside instead of going to the gym is almost overwhelming.
So why bother fighting it? We can always start a new regime when spring comes around, right?
We all know it’s hard to stay motivated and determined to keep in shape during winter. Trackies, television, and cold weather seem to sap up all motivation to eat well and exercise properly. We know its hard to go to the gym to exercise when the weathers all dark, down and cold , you just don`t feel the temptation to get out of that warm bed to go train, we understand, we have all been there before, trust me.
But that does not mean we give up!
You don`t have to exercise everyday to stay in shape, just don't stop completely you only have to train 3-4 times a week to get results.
But its not all about the exercise.
Many people find it hard to keep their nutrition and diet clean during winter due to it simply just being too cold and to much effort to eat right. I'm sure they would much rather order take out instead of cooking up a nice healthy meal. Lets face it , the human body wants what it wants.
and if it doesn't want to do something , its not gonna do it. But that`s no excuse to make it a habit to eat unhealthy everyday due to it being to dark and cold. You can have your unhealthy cheat day maybe once or twice a week. This is what many people find difficult to keep on track...
How many cheat days they have?
Some people don`t stop, once they've had one they want more , then it becomes a habit , then they start putting the weight back on then end up feeling depressed and down and never getting that motivation back to train again.
Speaking of motivation and getting it back...
You can always get a buddy having a friend to train with keeps you accountable and will make exercising a lot more fun and enjoyable. another way by staying motivated during winter is setting goals, set yourself a goal and try to achieve it , this could be as simple as wanting to fit into certain types of clothing or losing a few kilos for a wedding or an event coming up. by achieving the goal it will keep you motivated to keep training and eating right in the season of winter.
Stay motivated and never quit doing what you love!!!
