Fat Loss Tip #2 – Stay Active/Keep Moving – Winter Edition

Posted: Nov 15, 2012 in Motivation


Hi guys, how is everyone today. I hope everyone’s living good. Following my last blog post on the Fat Loss Winter Edition tip #1, let’s get started with tip #2 – “Stay Active, Keep Moving”

Now before I get started, I’m fully aware that a lot of people who read my blog may not necessarily go to the gym or even train. I do take this into consideration when posting and always try to include alternatives to exercises. I say this as my intention is to make the blog for everyone.

Now, around winter and Christmas people tend to get a lot more lazier, sluggish and use the excuse “It’s Christmas, I’m aloud to eat whatever I want” and to be fair you’re right… You can eat whatever you want, not just at Christmas but at any time you wish. But you see, by making excuses you will pay a price…What is that price you may be thinking???

Let’s say for example:

You start pigging out around the end of November and throughout the duration of December. You trick yourself and say “No problem, it’s winter, no one will see me topless anyway”…I’m sure you’ve heard that one before right (maybe even said it yourself LOL)…That’s all good though until Jan/Feb rolls around and your a stone heavier. NOW, what’s the price you have to pay here…I think there are a few to be honest but the one that strikes me the most is the fact that you have to loose that weight… You now have to put in the effort to loose them pounds whether it be cardio, weight training, a strict diet or all three – This can all be avoided though if you keep active & keep moving. Here are some ideas I’ve come up with:

1) Take the stairs instead of the lift. Every little helps right… Even better if your on the 10th floor LOL

2) Try walking to places you often visit that are convenient for you to do so. Walking is a great form of cardio that doesn’t place too much stress on the body.

3) Go for a walk on your lunch break. Especially if you work in an office. Sitting down for 8 hours a day is not healthy, especially if you’re barely moving.

4) If you don’t own a gym membership you have no excuse. You can use your own bodyweight to get your pump on. Exercises like push ups, burpees, body weight squats, crunches (just to name a few) are a great way to keep in shape.

5) Try cycling instead of taking some other form of transport whether that be bus, train, tram, tube, dlr or car – I did that on purpose 🙂

6) If you have children you can wrap up warm and go play outside ( that’s if you have the energy LOL)

These are just a few ideas I’ve brainstormed together. I will add more in the up & coming weeks. Please feel free to share your ideas as well as I love hearing from you guys. Look out for next weeks fat loss tip #3 – on the winter edition.

And remember guys, no time to stand still, “You gotta keep moving”…
