But there is no need to panic because we got your back with a wonderful mashed potatoes recipe that will put your guest in a food coma.

How To Stay Motivated and Active During the Winter

The holiday season isn’t the time to get lazy and stop working and monitoring your health. Actually, it’s the perfect time to get back on track or go even harder. Let’s take a look at three simple tips for staying active during the winter season.

 

Embrace the cold: if you are going to exercise outside, you must embrace the cold. Early morning runs will be uncomfortable so realize that and prepare. Make sure to get running leggings and a running jacket. Don’t let the weather stop you from staying active.

Set a goal: setting a goal gives you something tangible to reach for during the holiday. You can sign up for a race, set a weight loss goal, for simply decide to work out four days a week for two months straight. Just be sure to have a purpose for your workouts.

Start inside: this tip works with embracing the cold. Start your morning run by warming up inside and getting your blood running before stepping outside into the cold. Once you are warmed up, your body won’t even notice the weather outside.
