Another long weekend is here and that means friends, family, socializing and indulging! Wondering how to stay healthy this labour day weekend with all of the temptations? There are so many fun activities to partake in this time of year that can get you outside and active, and can be enjoyed by everyone. Here are a few of my favourites:
Head to an apple orchard nearby to get the freshest pick! Apple picking alone is a fun and low key workout, which includes cardio, reaching, bending and carrying a heavy load. So get to an apple orchard this weekend for some fresh air, fresh apples and a fun instagram-worthy time. Need a few apple recipes? These are two of my favourites: Mini Apple Pies and Banana Apple Pie Filling for Breakfast.
If you decide to hit the shops this weekend, this is a great cardio opportunity, especially at the outdoor outlet malls. Make sure to steer clear of the food court and tempting treat options though to save yourself from bloat and overeating!
This could be one of your last chances to snatch up the freshest fruits and veggies of the season at an outdoor market. Farmer’s markets are an excellent way to fill your kitchen with healthy food options and colourful, seasonal ingredients.
Take advantage of the slightly cooler weather by getting yourself to the nearest trail and getting in a good walk! This is an excellent activity to do with friends and family.
Try A Class
Been seeing these trending fitness classes on instagram, but haven’t had any free time to try them out? It’s the perfect time to give those SoulCycle, reformer pilates, hot yoga, ballet beautiful, etc. classes a go this weekend!
Visit A Sunflower Field
Go visit a sunflower patch, walk around and take in the fresh air and beautiful setting. It is such a special time of year when the sunflowers bloom. Make a day out of it by finding a farm that has more than just sunflowers, maybe a petting zoo, maze and market as well. Getting outside and active is essential, but also fun, easy and accessible to great sights at this time of year.
What are your plans for the weekend?
