It’s so hard to say goodbye to your favorite season, and it’s even harder not to ruin all the hard work that you put in the gym in the months prior. After months of sweating and watching what you eat, the second the temps drop below 80, you might be ready to take a long break and fall back into your pre-summer habits.
Seasons change, but that doesn’t mean that your body has to do the same. You can have your slim waist and your pumpkin spice too if you get prepared for the season and all its temptations.
With shorter and colder days approaching, there is a lot stacked up against you. For one, you can wear more forgiving clothes again so you don’t have the same incentive to keep your abs tight as you did during the summer. You also naturally crave more filling and warm foods, which typically means more calories and pounds.
But there are also good things about the new season: you’ll want to be inside more, which means the gym can be your new hangout spot and you’ll likely drink less since the sun goes down earlier and happy hours aren’t as tempting. We’re loving the new season for a chance to stay healthy and stick to our summer body goals.
