Now is the perfect time to ramp up your fitness routine. It’s the time of year when many of us want to hibernate- the weather gets cooler, we begin to make excuses like not being able to exercise outdoors or it’s getting dark earlier, etc… but guess what… YOU can control all those excuses from knocking at your door aka your mind and get going!
Lucky for us, we are about to “fall back” with the time change that’s coming up bringing us an earlier sunrise! This allows for that extra motivation you might need to get up and get your heartrate going as you greet the sun and trust me, rising earlier definitely has its privileges and advantages for both your mind and your body!
I have always been a morning workout person and encourage my clients, friends/loved ones to try and do it first thing in the morning as well so as to not have any excuses or obligations that come up in the evenings. You never know what meeting, event, practice for your kids or simply exhaustion from a long day, might prevent you from doing that evening workout. Before you know it, the misses keep adding up and you have gone days or weeks without moving your body and making your health a priority! Schedule this time for YOU and commit to it as you would a meeting, dinner date and/or doctor’s appointment.
Exercising first thing in the morning has many benefits- increased energy and production, improved mood and mental clarity to help tackle your day, a feeling of accomplishment because you already got in your miles and/or torched some serious calories all while sweating off any stress you may have been carrying, oh and did I mention you may just feel a tad more bada$$ as your strength and conditioning improves?!? Yes, yes and yes… I encourage you to take this time for YOU to Fall-IN to fitness and head into the holidays healthy, happy, confident and strong!
I would love to hear your progress or if I can support you in any way, please let me know-
Rise and shine and cheers to you healthier YOU! xx, a-m
