Stay Fit This Fall

Tag Archives: Exercise

This weekend will mark the official start of fall, and that means thoughts soon will turn to cozy times indoors, holiday meals, fun with family and friends and a bit of  indulgence all around.

But you can get a jump on staying fit this fall by planning to work some healthy  (and fun!) practices into your routine. Here are a few suggestions to get you started:

  • Head outside. Atlanta has an abundance of wonderful walking trails and natural spots where you can enjoy a refreshing hike, a ride down the river or a biking trip through the woods. Gather a few friends and plan a regular standing outing you can enjoy all season long. 
  • Workout earlier. The days will start getting shorter very soon, so it’s important to switch up your exercise times so you don’t get left in the dark. Start your run or walk earlier to make the most of precious fall daylight hours.
  • Stay quenched. It may not come to mind as easily as it does in the heat of summer when you’re perpetually parched, but it’s just as important to get plenty of water during the cooler days of fall. Make sure to take water with you wherever you go.
  • Enjoy seasonal delights. In addition to all the indulgent treats of the season, there are plenty of healthy flavors to be savored right now, as well. Enjoy pumpkins and pumpkin seeds, pears, parsnips, sweet potatoes, beets, carrots, turnips and more to your heart’s content!

Embracing the season in a healthy way will help you stay fit and beautiful well into the winter. Enjoy!

Many people ask the question, “How long will the results of my tummy tuck last?” Having the procedure done by a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon is crucial, but the key to results longevity lies largely with the person having the procedure. The long-term success of a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) depends largely on maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise.
If you don’t have a workable post-tuck maintenance plan, you may unintentionally put the weight back on and slowly undo the work that has been done. It’s important to create an effective post-surgery plan for eating and moving before you have your tummy tuck done. 
  • Do a little research and find the sport, class and/or physical activity you will enjoy most.
  • Do you like to be outside?
  • Do you do best in a class environment, with the motivation and support of those around you?
  • Do you prefer to play on a team?
  • Do you need the guidance and accountability a personal trainer could provide?
  • Do you enjoy the serene solitude of solo exercise?
Pick the plan that works for you and get started! 
Make sure you check with your doctor before starting any new exercise regime, and ensure that you have fully recovered from your procedure before getting active. Once you have the go-ahead, it’s time to get moving–but make it fun!
