Staying Active During Winter Months

 How are you staying active while the winter months are here? Do you have the clothing you need for staying active indoors? Want to be active outdoors like Kara with her hiking? Juno Active by Junonia has you covered!

I’ve been struggling with Cabin Fever these days. As I mentioned in my blog. I am trying to get back on track with healthy eating and exercise.

I’m trying to think beyond this slump, to keep my mind on the positive.  I am taking a moment to think about all the positive things about being active – from the internal rewards such as healthy blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol to the external and outward rewards of feeling great with energy galore.

While the bigger, grandiose goals – from Machu Picchu to Yosemite – are more exciting to talk about and fantasize about – the more amazing and worthwhile venture is just being healthy.

So this week, I’m focusing on getting my exercise in and playing with my girls. I'm continuing the BistroMD program - even if I was a little off track last month. The most awesome thing I can be is an active, loving and healthy self, wife and mother.

This is what we do one step at a time when we commit to fitness, no matter where we are on the scale. This is why it is so important to be active – to live our lives to the absolute fullest.

Happy Trails,
