Some additional exercises like walking may be one of the best choices which you can get in after dinner or early in the morning (time can be flexible), esp. if you can form a habit about it. You won’t sweat too much when walking, and with a pair of nice walking shoes you can easily start to walk anywhere you like. Do remember to keep yourself dry and warm when you are outside anyhow. Hiking is another exercise which you can do in fall; you may enjoy bug-free wonderful views all around, temperature is not so high and there’s no too much sunshine in the daytime. When you increase your elevation, hiking can burn your fat quickly and your legs will get enough exercises they need.

Icy and windy outside will be coming soon; therefore, the outdoor activities may not be continued later. But it is not the excuse of quitting all the exercises, just get back to gym and continuing to do your physical training instead. The thing is, don’t spend your time on the same machines every time when you go there. Your gym offers more than one type of things you can enjoy. Always try something new will be a good way to keep your interesting of going to gym. The more variety you have, the easier it will be to stick to your program.
For some people who hate to go to gym, get fit in their own homes will be a good option. Actually you don’t need tons of equipments before you start.

Stay with healthy foods
An apple a day keeps a doctor away. Apples (not your iOS devices BTW) are high in fiber, have no cholesterol, low in calories, and give your body important nutrients like potassium, vitamin C, calcium and folic acid. Other foods like pumpkins provide carotenoids (which help fight heart disease and cancer), vitamins C, E and riboflavin, iron, fiber and potassium, etc. Same with apples they’re also great for nutritious and yummy meals. For apples, simply eat them alone or make some dishes you like such as applesauce oatmeal pancakes. And for pumpkins, pumpkin pies will be nice. Apart from that, pumpkin pancakes, and pumpkin soup are also very good recipes.
