With spring and bikini season hopefully just around the corner (fingers crossed!), I am setting a new goal this month to push myself harder. As I mentioned in my Eating Colourfully post last month, I stuck to adding more colour to my daily diet. This month I’m hoping to set a goal for myself that’s a bit tougher and I know that braving the cold more often is something that I’ll need to push myself on because if you know me, I am NOT a winter lover. I would rather be hot and sweaty than cold and outdoors if I could avoid it, which is why I’m hoping once I get in the habit of making it to the gym at GoodLife Fitness more often, it will get easier because there’s nothing like a good run or full body work out to warm you up!
There’s also nothing better than coming home from the cold and having a tea. I’ve gotten into the habit of adding lemon to black tea when ever I drink it, instead of sugar and milk, and also putting slices of lemon in my water, which I like to think boosts my immune system in the winter. Anytime I feel a little under the weather, my cure is always getting the biggest jug of fresh squeezed OJ I can find and trying to drink as much of it as I can within a day or two. For me, the extra vitamin C makes me feel like I’m being extra good to my body. Extra citrus in your diet can also aid in losing weight I’ve heard, so it can’t hurt to add more of that into my meals this month too!
Stay tuned for my fitness post next month and see how I’ve done with sticking to my goal!
