Winter is commonly associated with the coming of the Christmas season and of course cool breeze, snow, snow, and more snow. For some, winter is an exciting time of the year because of the student break and the winter sports. However, winter can also spell to additional weight and unhealthy lifestyle. Well, “what can I do?” you cry, “Is winter the time to hit the couch and watch football and movies all day and night?”Not because you cannot lawn the yard and run 5 miles every morning, you will just sit, eat, watch, and sleep all day and night for the whole winter season. You need to move and you need to move now!Here are some tips you can do the moment you realize that the air is getting colder and colder every time you wake up in the morning:1. Eat right and eat healthy.From thanksgiving to your boss’ birthday in February and all the parties in between, you surely have thrown entirely out of the window your “balanced diet” and have replaced it with mashed potato, cakes, and macaronis.Do not forget that you are spending more time in front of your television doing nothing but stare and grab a handful of junk food after another. You must eat right and eat on time! Go for veggies. If you do not stick to your healthy food plan, you will surely gain enough pounds to hibernate until the next winter!2. Move!A simple walk can burn calories and shed away that extra food you have consumed because there is nothing to do but to eat.Always try to not keep still; this will only keep matters worst. Unburned energy can convert to fat, which, in its turn can add to weight; and gaining weight can be unhealthy.
