As sad as we are that the warm summer days are over, we are absolutely thrilled to feel the crispness of fall in the air. The leaves are starting to change color and we are excited to bring out our cozy sweaters from the back of the closet. And while we absolutely adore the season and all of the tasty foods it has to offer, we know that workout motivation may start to slump. It is so easy to become tempted with pumpkin spice lattes and the comfiness of the couch, so here are some tips of how to stay fit even when the temperatures drop!
Enjoy! xx Calluna
