Feel the Burn!

It is that time of year when we are consuming sugar in all of our celebrations.
The new year brings so many things, and some of those things are detrimental to our weight loss.
It can be hard to feel the burn when you are working out in the winter. 
So, what are we to do? 
Here are three fat burning tips to really burn in the winter time.

1. Lay Off the Soda 

Stick with water or low calorie lemonade. Soda is packed full of sugar and calories. All that sugar lays right on your belly, especially when you aren't as active in winter. Supplementing lemonade will boost your metabolism with the citric acid, and water is calorie free.

2. Take A Run or Jog 

Running or jogging is very good in the winter time because your body doesn't break down as quick. You are going to break down eventually, but you can isolate your abs by running longer distances. If you are in a very rainy place consider a gym membership for a treadmill or use one of your own.

3. Take Up Strength Training

Muscle burns up to four times as many calories as fat does! When you build those muscles it requires more calories to upkeep them. Incorporate strength training 2-3 days a week. Eat a 500 less calories and begin building for max results on loosing weight. 

Have a great day and a Happy New Year!
