How to Stay Active During the Winter

[Have you entered my Swanson Vitamins giveaway yet? $50 dollars to their online store up for grabs!]

In the summer and spring I tend to stick to just a few different activities….mostly biking, walking, and running. I just love being outside, so I take my workout outdoors whenever possible. However, when it comes to winter, motivation can be lacking and the weather itself can actually stop you from being able to do your normal activity.

Now that I am in the thick of studying for my NASM PT certification, I’ve really been delving into the textbook and picking up a ton of new information.

Goal Setting in 2015

[Last day to enter my Resistance Band giveaway! Great for travel and at home workouts!]

February already?! Where the heck did January go? I’m pretty sure I’ll be saying that all year.

I’m a little late to the whole resolution setting game…but better late than never, right? Besides, I’m not really one for setting resolutions. I like the idea of ‘intentions’ or overall goals. Resolutions seem so restrictive and potentially disappointing if you don’t meet them. Plus, it’s pretty hard to pick something to work on for the whole year! Small goals and changes you can make on a daily basis work for me much better. So I am putting a few ideas out there for things I’d like to focus on, possibly attempt, and accomplish in the New Year. I wanted to share some of that with you all today.
