I don't know about you but I love the changing seasons, I always really love it when the nights get lighter and I have to say I think it makes coming out to classes loads easier when its brighter at night.
I also think this is a great time of the year to kickstart our diet and fitness.
Hands up if you have been hibernating all winter under those extra layers and are now starting to think about that bikini body, waxing and pedicures!!!
The winter can have a negative effect on your schedule with dark nights and dark mornings, the cold and rainy weather puts a downer on your energy levels and all you want to do is stay inside where it's warm and cosy and you put off working-out so much that it becomes the norm.
All that inactivity during the winter will make you put on a few pounds and make it harder to get back into the swing of things but there are some cheats you can use to get used to working out again.
Find a friend to work out with
Having a workout buddy helps you stay motivated during your workouts and also to keep going by not wanted to let each other down.
Try a new class
Starting a new class keeps you from getting stuck in a rut and just going through the motions - Your body will be tested by trying new exercises and you can get great results by keeping your body on it’s toes. Check out the latest new class to hit my timetable, Piloxing, a fusion of boxing, pilates and dance!
Get outdoors and workout with the kids
Now the summer is coming the weather is more welcoming for runs around the park or joining a Bootcamp or just a good long family walks or bike ride at weekends.
Early morning classes
Now that the mornings are brighter there’s more encouragement to throw back the duvet and get out there for a workout. They say that in the morning our body burns even more calories!
Cleaning up your diet
Eating well is so much easier in the summer when we can enjoy lots of lovely salads and barbecued meats. Adopt a healthy eating plan now to help lift your mood and shift those pounds. When we are eating good food it does wonders not only for your waistline but for the way you feel. The people on my Hot Body Diet say that they feel so much better, have more energy, less ailments, better mood etc etc.
So I think that March is a great month to spring clean your fitness and eating goals!
