4 Easy Ways To Avoid Falling Off Your Workout This Winter
When you’re not a workout fanatic, it can be easy to make excuses as to way you couldn’t work today or the day before that – especially when the weather isn’t favorable – but it doesn’t have to be that way.

Here are four of her best tips for staying in tip-top shape when the weather hits below zero. Get ready to sweat!
1. Walk and take the stairs.
“People forget how effective walking and stairs can be. They’re both great for cardio! Try parking your car farther away from the building, which will force you to walk further. Don’t ever take the elevator. Take the stairs instead. Many malls open the halls before the stores open. So, you can take an hour in the mornings to walk inside with a little heat if you don’t want to walk outside. If the mall is multi-level, try walking each level in its entirety and walk up and down the escalator steps. For even more cardio, pick up the pace. Want to take it up a notch? Carry small hand weights and walk with them. Pets are a great excuse to walk more too. Extend your morning walk with your dog by a few blocks, every extra step counts.”
