Top 5: Winter Exercise & Nutrition Tips

1. Buddy up

Having a training partner with similar goals will help push your training to the next level. It will also stop you hitting snooze on those cold mornings when exercise is the last thing you want to do.

2. Keep a daily food diary

It’s hard to stay on track when the weather is wet and miserable. Write down everything you eat and drink throughout the day. This will help you stay accountable and may well be an eye opener. Research consistently shows those who keep a food diary lose more weight than those who don’t.

3. Plan for the weekend

It can be difficult to eat well and pass on having a few too many alcoholic drinks when socializing with friends. But you don’t have to miss out if you plan for it. Being strict on yourself during the week will allow you to have some fun on the weekend and still reach your goals.

4. Exercise indoors

The cold and wet weather is not an excuse to give exercise a miss. Exercising in the comfort of your home is both cheap and effective. Why not purchase or hire some home fitness equipment or even an instructional exercise DVD.

5. Personal Training

Book some training sessions with a reputable personal trainer. A good trainer will help you achieve your goals in a safe and timely manner. Many will also come to your home or office during the cold and wet winter months.
