Winter is coming, and it feels supremely convenient to sit on your Iron Throne a.k.a. the couch, and wait the chilly season out, indoors. Despite your weight-loss resolutions and that expensive gym membership, you cannot magically lose weight if you decide to hibernate this winter. While becoming a blanket wrapped human burrito sounds tempting, you will be entering the New Year with zero motivation and a lot of extra pounds.

Which is why there is no excuse good enough to stop taking care of yourself and remaining fit; not even a minus three degree outside. It is crucial to stay in shape and remain fit, no matter the climatic conditions around you. So here are a few easy tips and tricks to keep your weight loss routine going during winters:

Fun Indoor Workout– We get it, waking up at six and going for your usual morning run in the freezing cold does not sound like a good idea. You would rather be curled up in bed, and frankly, so you should. However, just because you cannot step outside, does not mean you cannot work (out) from home. Even if you have zero equipment at home, you can always spice up your routine by trying out fun new workout options like Zumba. Just put in 30-45 minutes every day, and you will not have to worry about not fitting into your party clothes.

Moderation Is Key– Winter is a time for festivities and merry-making. You’ll be attending multiple house parties where family and friends will be pressuring you to stuff your mouth with food until you physically cannot anymore. It will be hard to say no to the delicious spread, but the good news is, you don’t have to. Just remember to eat in moderation. Make sure you haven’t starved yourself all morning only to feast at the party. Just eat in small quantities all day, thereby reducing the chance of overeating at the party.

Remember To Stay Hydrated– One cannot stress enough on the importance of drinking water every day, and its associated health benefits. Being hydrated enables better digestion and reduces the risk of cramping up after any strenuous exercise. Additionally, most people mistake dehydration for hunger and go on to overeat to get rid of that feeling. By simply drinking enough water, your appetite will be in control and you will automatically feel satisfied and full.

Dance The Night Away– Winter parties are the perfect time to show off your dance moves, and there is no better exercise than dancing. Ditch the corner seat at the bar for the dance floor, and you will definitely notice a change in your appearance. Bust out those moves, sweat it out in the club, and enjoy the natural red glow on your cheeks. Even if you do not have any plans to head out, you can always dance at home like no one is watching, because no one is.

Hope this helps. Tell us what your winter workout plans look like.
