Keep motivated in Autumn

FACT: 60% of people do half as much exercise in the Autumnas in the Summer months. Don’t become a statistic.

I know we can reach our fitness goal but to help us stay focused now that Summer’s over, check out my top tips for staying motivated this Autumn.  If you put your mind to it, you can do it.

As the summer sunshine draws to a close, it can be tempting to stay in bed rather than head out to exercise. I know the thought of going to the gym is the last thing on your mind when it’s dark when you wake up and dark when you leave work, but this doesn’t mean your fitness journey should be derailed.

It takes a lot of hard work and discipline to achieve a healthy, toned body. But with some basic nutritional knowledge you could achieve your goals faster than you thought.

For starters, try eating more often.

By spacing out your meals to every 2.5 – 3 hours you will actually help yourself lose weight. Instead of eating 3 large meals a day, divide this into 6 smaller meals. Not only will the more regular flow of nutrients into your body help raise your metabolism and burn more fat in the long-run, you will also feel less hungry.

Get active! This doesn’t mean just walking to work occasionally, getting up off the couch for a drink, or typing all day on your computer, it means cardiovascular exercise, exercise that boosts your heart
rate.

Never miss an opportunity to get involved in sports. Get involved in activities and sports requiring running, strength and quick reflexes wherever possible.
