Hi all. I was wondering how to stay motivated in the colder months? I have found that I am pretty good at tracking what I eat and getting better at my portion sizes but my exercise schedule is going down hill. It never used to bother me to exercise in the colder months but now, I seem to be to cold to move. lol. I exercise in my home and I turn the heat up and I have my family running for the fans. Ha ha ha. This past week I have not been doing so well with exercise. Any one have any suggestions other than turning up the heat and layering the clothing? It's not just the cold, it's also the moving I am beginning to do less.

    I rely on group exercise classes. When I build them into my schedule they provide structure that I'm not good at providing for myself. And sometimes it's just a relief to go somewhere and put my brain on autopilot and just do what the lady says... LOL

    The local YMCA has a punch card system where you can buy a card with a certain number of admissions on it, and use it to get in to exercise classes. It's more economical than a full membership. Local colleges and universities often offer exercise classes that are open to the public, too. (for a fee)

    Treat yourself to a new DVD or go to the library and test out a few exercise videos. I find that a new exercise routine motivates me. A high impact video will really get you moving and warming up in no time. I hope this helps.

    I have trouble with this also. My goal is to walk up and down my street once per day. It's only a five minute walk so it should be doable. I am hoping that my sun lamp will also help me feel like being more active during the cold weather.
