Happy Monday Guys! Today I’m going to give you FIVE reasons why you should keep training and eating well through Winter.
Number 1: You will fight off sickness because you have a stronger immune system!
Eating Fresh food such as fruit, veggies, wholegrains, meats, eggs, nuts and yoghurts are going to keep your immune system strong so you can fight off any nasty colds and other sicknesses. In particular eat Garlic and foods high in vitamin C such as Leafy Greens (Kale, Spinach, Broccoli), Capsicums and Kiwi Fruits.
Number 2: You will save money on buying new jeans! Or you’ll look AMAZING in the jeans you buy
Don’t put on weight so you have to go spend money on more Jeans! Speaking of jeans, how good does a toned, perky butt and legs look in Jeans? No one likes saggy butt and muffin tops!
Number 3: You won’t have to work as hard come August!
We’ve all been there, when you put your favourite pair of denim shorts on and they DON’T fit! Then you go on crazy diets and training plans to have to get back into them again! Remember a healthy weight loss is only .5-1kg a week. Wanna lose 5kgs? You’re looking at between 5-10 weeks of losing those bad boys.
Number 4: If you have a Mid Winter-Tropical Holiday booked then you better keep up that training!
Feel amazing in your bikini and all your summer dresses! You don’t want to have to stay covered up!
Number 5: Feel More Energised and Happier during the day!
If you’re eating healthy and working hard you are going to find it easier to get out of bed in the mornings. Winter mornings are already hard when you have to wake up, so DON’T make yourself feel even MORE sluggish by fuelling your body with Gross Foods! Also Winter weather is linked with people feeling depressed and anxious. Combat these stats and get those endorphins flowing, by doing some exercise!
