Living Healthy: Fall Edition

Nekter is one of my favorite spots for healthy and delicious snacks
I feel as the weather gets colder I tend to reach for more comfort food. I find a reason to indulge in that perfect Pumpkin Spice Latte and the extra cookie. There is nothing wrong with enjoying these special treats but the problem begins when they stop being "special" and become a habit. Here are some tips on how to "skinnify" your holidays (yes I made that word up ;p)

1. Limit your lattes to one day
          I love coffee especially lattes but consuming one more than once a week can be very detrimental to my health so I limit it to having one once a week. On the rest of the week I order coffee with a splash of soy milk and I sometimes add a packet of sweetener when I need the extra kick.

2. Make the gym a priority
          I lose all motivation to work out whenever the weather gets cold. I would rather stay in my cosy room with my oversized sweatshirts but during the holidays it is imperative to continue your workout routine. The Tone It Up girls have a variety of workouts that are easy to follow but are still effective. Don't lose your motivation and make it a priority to take care of your healthy.

3. Have fun
          Keep your focus on staying healthy and remember to keep having fun. If your idea of a great workout is dancing then blast some music up and shake it out. Don't take it too seriously just remember to love your body and it will love you back.
