There is something amazing that happens in the Fall, that’s good crisp air. Although it doesn’t work in favor of my kids with their asthma it does wonders for me. That morning air is a good time to get out of bed and get a good work out in.
Now my job is doing a step challenge and I am on a team of 3 other individuals. We have increased our walking. We don’t take elevators and we take walk breaks. I also have been hitting the gym strong almost daily. My rest day is Friday. I am more motivated to make moves than ever before and instead of saying I want to do, I am simply doing. I am making better food choices. I sort of have to so I can indulge every now and again in some of Fall’s comfort food.
I would say because a lot of people are more focused in this month with back to school and other projects, it would be a good time to form a group. You need a group or even just a partner to hold you accountable for your workouts. It always helps to have someone else along the journey with you. If you can’t that’s understandable but start making small changes. Trust me I became more aware of what I was eating when I wrote it down. I am not on a diet. I have never dieted a day in my life. I don’t knock others for it but it’s just not my thing. I am making better snack choices, increase water, etc. I just can’t do the whole count calorie thing. I will look at one snack and compare for my consumption but often times I elect for some form of veggie or fruit substitution.
Keep in mind with the Fall that means again that you have approximately 3 months to complete those goals of fitness that you made almost 9 months ago. The year is almost done. You have to get it together and especially now because as more and more times past, we are getting ready to go into Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas and then wham right into the New Year. I don’t know about you but that’s candy, potato salad, ham, turkey and a lot of cakes that are about to be made and ate. With that in mind I have to literally step my game up. I do not want to be extra fluffy come holiday picture time. I refuse to be. Now I may still have a few places that still won’t be in formation but I definitely will be a sleeker version than I was last year during the holidays. So no mcfluffy this year, I got to be mchealthy.
So step it up and get on team healthy!!
