5 ways to fall forward into fitness during Fall

As we begin to switch seasons from Summer to Fall, it always seems to go much slower than switching seasons from Fall to Winter. If I had to choose, I would choose Fall all year round.

Who elses lovesssss FALL?!

Can we get a “It’s almost Fall Ya’lll”

 

Summer is the season we tend to loosen up and have some fun, slightly more than we should be. Fall is the time to reconnect with our goals and think about what we want to achieve before the craziness of holiday season comes.

Along with Fall comes, changing the clocks/ time back so how about we Fall Forward toward Fitness rather than falling back like the time, shall we?

 

Read below to find 5 ways to fall Forward into Fitness during Fall

 

1. Kick Your Bad Habits

First things first, kick those habits you have been wanting to all summer long. Maybe your back to working on site and you have fallen into the habit of taking the first parking spot or the escalator instead of the stairs each time. How about stopping every single day for coffee on the way, allowing yourself that temptation for donuts or sweet on the side. Minimize those extra things you have been doing often resulting into a poor, bad habit. Replace them; for example; splurge and get a new coffee to try and make at home, get a fitbit for some motivation and accountability while you begin tracking and aiming for those 10,000 steps per day.

2. Better Sleep Routine

It is not about how much sleep you are getting, but its about how much quality sleep you are getting. Therefore, if you’re up nonstop because of a new puppy, newborn, or perhaps a significant other that keeps you awake with their snoring, then you will have to make sure you give yourself more of a time frame to be asleep so you can make up for those countless interruptions throughout the night.

The optimal time frames of sleeping are 10- PM- 6 AM or 11 PM- 7 AM. I do understand there are some individuals that work an overnight shift (thank goodness for you, because I could never do that) so when given the opportunity to have that optimal sleep schedule; take it. It is simply known, those that work overnight do not get enough adequate sleep by sleeping during daylight hours. We still have some time before we change the clocks but let’s start getting the body ready, both mind and body. In result does make us sleepier/fatigued, leading us to the next way to fall forward rather than back during Fall…

3. Stay on a Schedule

Even when the weekend approaches, try to do your best to continue to stick to the schedule as you do during the weekdays. I get it, some mornings you want to “sleep in” or some nights you end up staying way past your bedtime. But I’m saying do your best to stick with the schedule. By having one late night, resulting into one night of terrible sleep, can result up to 48 hours of onset fatigued and less energy, effecting metabolism. For those individuals who are athletes, this can decrease your performance, reflecting your achievement toward reaching your desired goals. Next up…

4. Goal setting

Set a new goal!  New Season New Goal(s) Be sure it can be realistically achieved. For example, eating out less often. Do this by planning one night a week where you go out to eat or eat take out. The other nights of the week do not have to be fancy steak dinners, but I’ll tell you what. There are more nights where I’m throwing steak and potatoes in my air fryer than I am cooking chicken. That’s a fact! Another realistic goal is to increase water intake daily. I’m sure most of you have heard me say it over and water, but I simply cannot explain enough how important water is for weight loss journey but also overall organ/body functioning. My goal this Fall will be a couple things as I participate in my “Fall into Fitness” Challenge. Sign ups are still happening with the start date not until October 5th, if you want to join us click here to sign up.

5. Keep it Moving

Just Move! You don’t have to necessarily start a workout routine right away. If you do, your ahead of most, but if your just not there yet, that’s okay too. With Fall weather approaching there is no better time than now to take it outdoors. Whether that means taking your workout outdoors or simply a stroll outside; get outside more. Make this a goal for the season, its good for you! Both vitamin D and being mindful in an outdoor setting is good for the soul. Another suggestion to keep moving especially those with an extended period of working from home…set a timer every hour. Stand for 10 minutes every hour. I CHALLENGE YOU!

I've been going to Marisa for awhile when I'm either in some type of pain or just in need of a massage. She's extremely knowledgeable in what she does; gives me a lot of advice if a body part hurts and what I can do at home to help. I've also joined her New Years challenge; definitely has helped me stay in the right path. My last massage experience I actually fell asleep on the table because it was so relaxing!! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

I participated in Marisa’s Challenge from March to May this year, participating in this challenge was more of a learning experience for me. I wasn’t a big eater as I was always busy and just would have another cup of coffee versus having a nice meal because it was quicker. Marisa taught me how to balance life while eating well and maintaining balance. My big Challenge was I wanted to make sure I could still enjoy life by eating fun food, having a nice relaxing cocktail while still balancing portion and healthy eating while getting in a workout 5 days a week. And She taught me just that! I learned to do that, While loosing 10 pounds! I am not ending this life style today I am Continuing it and shooting to loose another 20 pounds but will be over the moon to at least get another 10! I am very happy with how far I come, and I have Marisa to thank for that. Work with her whether it’s to loose weight, learn how to balance a healthy lifestyle, or even gain muscle and become stronger, don’t look further Marisa is your girl!

I trained with Marisa for 3 years. She is amazing. Highly professional and very quick to return any nutritional or other questions I had. I still will only go to her for my monthly massages because they are simply the best I have ever had. She is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to every day life and fitness goals!

I've been going to Marisa for massage therapy since the beginning of 2018 and she's my go to massage therapist when I know its time for my muscles to decompress. Marisa's background and experience in fitness and personal training really stand out from the rest of massage therapy that I've had in the past. And as a fitness enthusiast that lifts 6x/week, that's the best combination for me personally. From my very first massage therapy session with her, I felt like she was communicating with my muscles without me even saying much. It's like she was sensing and adjusting based on the feedback on how my muscles were reacting. I bring that up every session because I think that's an incredible skill. If you want to talk during your session, she will talk. If you just want to relax and shut eye, that's fine with her too. Very professional. Sometimes she runs promotions and specials during the holiday, I would definitely take advance of that. Schedule a session with Marisa and you'll know what I'm talking about!
