With the cooler months fast approaching here are 5 habits to get into now so those pesky winter kilos don’t sneak back on.

Exercise
If your current exercise is something that you may find difficult to continue during the cold months alternate to a ‘winter friendly’ exercise, such as joining a gym for 3-6 months or exercising at home using treadmill, bike or workout videos. For some more great winter workout ideas click here.

Free Vegetable Recipes
Make up a big pot of non-starchy vegetable soup and use as your Vegetable serves during the week. You can also freeze the soup to ensure it lasts long enough. Other great recipes are stir fry’s, vegetable kebabs and vegetable chips (here is a great one for Carrot Chips).

Water
Don’t like drinking cold water during winter? Have warm water (half cold, half boiling) and add lemon or lime for extra taste. It is easy to drink extra caffeine in winter due to wanting warm drinks, so warm water and herbal teas can help keep you on track and ensure you aren’t over caffeinated.

Summer Motivation
Write down your goals for summer and keep reminding yourself of them throughout the cooler months.

How do you want to look and feel for summer? Remember the preparation for summer is in winter.

Eat Regularly
The colder weather can tempt us to eat more. Ensure you eat regularly through the day (every 3-4 hours) to keep your body satisfied. Talk to your consultant about creating a menu with all your favorite Jenny Craig winter warmer meals.
