This time of year is always difficult when it comes to keeping in shape. Well, at least, I think it is, anyway. Due to the cold weather, we tend to cut back on how often we’re exercising, and thanks to all the delicious food that’s about, we also gain a few pounds. Lack of exercise combined with lots of tasty foods is a recipe for total disaster.
However, there’s no need to panic just yet. It might be hard to stay in shape during the winter, but there are a few simple ways that you can make it easier for yourself. For everything that you need to know, keep reading.
Practice the five-two rule
Okay, so it’s the season of yummy foods, and it’s natural to want to indulge. However, unless you want your waist to balloon, you need to monitor what you’re eating. Otherwise, you’ll start piling on the pounds.
The key to staying in shape during the winter months is practising the five-two rule. This means eating healthily for most of the week and then indulging on the weekends. Knowing that you can indulge on weekends should help you to stay on track with being healthy during the week.
Plan to cleanse
While now may not be the right time to cleanse, plan to start a cleanse program in a few weeks time. Once Christmas is over, and all the delicious food is gone, that’s the perfect time to get your body back into shape. Cleanses come in all shapes and sizes, from fresh fruit and vegetable cleanses, to aloe vera detoxes. Make sure that the program you choose is from a reputable company and has been created by a nutritionist.
By ordering your cleanse now from your chosen company, it’ll arrive before Christmas, so whenever you want to start it, you can do. Ideally, by the start of January, it’s a good idea to plan to be back on track and focused on getting back in shape.
Book into boot camp
If you always find that it’s a struggle to get your fitness level back up after the winter, consider booking into a boot camp. Run across the country, fitness boot camps, like Prestige Boot Camp, are ideal for getting yourself in shape. You’ll also find camps run across Europe. So if you fancy going somewhere new to get back in shape, look into a camp that’s located abroad.
These camps are amazing for building up your fitness as they are very hands on and include doing a lot of exercise. If you find it difficult to get back in shape after the winter, I highly recommend booking yourself into a fitness boot camp. Not only are they great for boosting your fitness levels, but also, are a lot of fun.
So there you have it, all the best tips for burning fat and getting back in shape. It might be hard to stay on track during the colder months, but if you follow these tips, it is possible.
