Turn Up the Heat on Your Cold Weather Workouts

My hope is that the cold weather is NOT putting a damper on your healthy workout routine. I have a saying, "There is no inappropriate weather, only inappropriate clothing." While this may be a stretch in a lightning storm, for the most part it is true. Another thing that my clients and I have discovered is that it is NEVER as bad as it may seem. Once you're warmed up, you'll forget it's raining, and with the right clothes (and attitude, you'll be warm).

1. Should I work out when I am sick?
If your symptoms are from your neck up, and you're feeling up to the task, ask yourself: Do I feel like working out? If the answer is yes, you're good to go.

If you're symptoms are located below your neck-difficulty breathing, chest tightness, wheezing, sneezing or coughing-don't exercise. Take the time to rest and recuperate.

If Homer Can Do it, So Can You

A few months back I wrote a post about the many benefits of exercise. Exercise really is medicine and ideally you want to get a dose of it every day.  So are you exercising on a consistent basis?  If not, is it because you are feeling a bit unmotivated?
