5 Tips to getting (staying) in shape this winter!

I couldn't help but notice all the great exercise gear on sale this week. Then it donned on me...it was almost New Year's and everybody would be making the proverbial resolution to "get in shape." There's no doubt that winter can make healthy living a little more challenging, but it can be done! Here are my top 5 tips to help you get (or stay) in shape this winter:

1. Get active now! Don't wait for New Year's or any other reason. Today is the day - now move! Find an activity you enjoy and throw yourself out there. If you're already active, mix it up and try something new.

2. Don't get sick! Getting sick ruins all of your best health goals and plans. Eat plenty of fresh veggies and fruits, aim for whole/real foods, and drink plenty of water. Wash your hands, avoid sick people, and hope for the best.

3. Get outside! Even though it's cold outside (and will be for quite some time) get out there and get some fresh air. Sled with your kids, walk out to feed the birds, shovel the driveway, try out your new snowshoes. Just be sure to get a few minutes of real sunlight every day. It can make a world of difference!

4. Try new, healthier, recipes! Tis the season for chocolates and cookies, but now is the perfect time to try out healthier versions of your old favorites. Or just sample smaller portions of your yummy faves. Box up the rest to share with friends.

5. Stress Less! This is by far the hardest one, but if you can let go of some of the stress in your life, your health will most likely improve.
