Can you feel it? The cool crisp wind, the colorful changes in the world around us, and the emergence of pumpkins and spice are all coming together to create that welcome buzz of energy. Fall is finally here! After a long, hot summer here in Texas I am definitely glad for the changing of the season.

Although this is a favorite time of year for me, it does pose a problem as a health and fitness blogger. No more summer workouts. Game over for the articles about how living a healthy lifestyle can also make you look good in your swimsuit. These and many other topics surrounding fitness revolve around summer and the time of year you can show off all of your hard work. So…what now?

Fear not my readers and fellow bloggers. Fall gives us many topics to discuss that can be both entertaining and motivational to keep us on track for maintaining our fitness levels so that we can look and feel good again next summer!

Football is Fitnessfoot ball foods

Its fall, which means it is football season again…YAY! For those of us who love football season, it usually means a few months of Sunday parties which include a number of unhealthy snacks and a
plethora of alcoholic beverages.

I mean these items go hand in hand with football, right? While I do agree to an extent, there are many ways to adapt your favorite half time snacks that will leave you feeling a lot less groggy at the end of that Sunday house party.

You can also take time to get outside with your friends and family during game breaks to toss the old pigskin around. By adding a little bit of physical activity to any day you are greatly improving your physical fitness level and helping your lungs and heart in the process. BONUS!! Stay tuned for an upcoming post geared specifically for Football Sunday.

Holiday Eating. Oh No

Ahh the holidays. Everyone loves the holiday season, but how much are you really hurting your fitness goals during Thanksgiving and Christmas? Go do a quick Google search on calories or eating habits for either of these holidays, and you will see that it is a very popular discussion.

I definitely support healthy eating over the holiday, but come on….can you really pass up on Aunt Edna’s famous pumpkin pie casserole? We all know better, which is why I think it is important to find ways to work around your holiday eating schedule instead of beating yourself up about it. I will also be rolling out a post on this topic in the near future.

Fall Weather is Perfect for A Run

fall runWeren’t we just talking about how nice the welcomed cooler weather is? If you have been writing off your cardio vascular portion of your workout because you don’t like to be out in the heat, then you can consider yourself called out right here.

In my opinion, there is no better time to be outside enjoying a run or even a walk. Mother nature created a spectrum of colors for you to enjoy while you work towards improving your heart health and melting away those pounds that you are adding by doing either of the two things we talked about above.

If you are new to running or walking for exercise, check out the blog post I wrote on the topic here.

 

Thanks for stopping in! Stay tuned for a few articles on fall fitness as well as a few entertainment pieces I plan on putting out over the next few weeks!

Stay healthy!

  8. Hitting the gym is something that you can do year round so the changing of seasons should not stop you from doing your health routine. I agree there are many temptations out there during the festive season and I suppose it’s all about moderation in eating. Easier said than done, but with discipline, should be possible.

  9. I usually exercise during all year, so, personally, the only change I see in my daily routine during fall is the increased availability of food lol. I see it as a little reward for being healthy the rest of the year.

  10. “Mother nature created a spectrum of colors for you to enjoy while you work towards improving your heart health” What I think that, when you feel tired, you might try to look at ‘green’ color for breathing out stressful.
