I am 100% guilty of using winter as an excuse to stay warm, inside, and well, unmotivated to work out. It’s the weather, the season, the hot chocolate… you name it.

The good news is, by the time the New Year’s resolution slightly starts to wear off, it’s March – and you know what that means: spring, which is immediately followed by summer, which equals bathing suit season.

If you’re like me and start to fall off the work-out wagon by mid-February, fear not. I have 5 ways to get yourself off of the couch and back onto your workout plan.

Why? Let’s discuss.

It seems like everywhere we turn lately, the world is on a “get happy” kick. It’s pretty awesome. Americans are hopping on the mindfulness, meditating, yoga, healthy-eating train, in hopes to increase (or create) happiness in their daily lives.

I am, unabashedly, riding first-class on this train. After all, if research shows that meditating for a few minutes a day will make me a happier person, who am I to argue? To start off the New Year, I recently attended a group meditation class with a few friends. The session was great; we practiced different kinds of meditation techniques, along with one exercise that stood out to me. The instructor had us write down five things that centered us, that brought us to that peaceful meditative state, besides just sitting in stillness.

Before we get started, let’s get out of the way that red wine will not be included in this list (we’ll save that for another day).

What I want to address here is what to drink and when to enhance your workout and make sure that you’ve restored some of the energy lost post-workout. Whether you are jumping on the treadmill or elliptical for just an hour a day, or preparing for a marathon, what you put into your body can either help or hurt you in the long run (no pun intended).
