Cruising Into Fall

Happy Labor Day everyone!

After an amazing and relaxing weekend, I’m feeling refreshed and ready to take on the world again! I hope all of my US readers have been able to do something this holiday weekend that’s just for YOU. I don’t know where you are, but here we’ve had the most amazingly perfect weather, I’ve been with great friends, and I don’t think there could have been a better way to send the summer packing. (So sad to say, isn’t it?)

Bye Bye, Summer!

But while it’s heartbreaking to say goodbye to summer, there are also some wonderful things about fall that we can look forward to as well. So if you’re mourning the loss of your beach days and sun dresses, have no fear, because fall can be just as fabulous! What do I love about fall?

Who doesn’t love a little fashion update when the scarves get to come back? And there is almost nothing more comfortable than a nice, soft, cozy sweater. And I’m pretty sure you all get what I’m saying about sweating on the way to work… Showing up at the office and needing to shower is not good for anyone.

But you know what else I love about fall? The chance to keep up with your fitness goals   that you worked so hard for all summer. A lot of people think of the summer as the time that they have to be “skinny”, and they change their fitness/nutrition regimen at strategic points during the year to get there. But what about staying fit and healthy all year, and saving the spring and summer for enjoying life, not for “getting skinny”?

I’m proposing that we all keep our fitness and nutrition goals in mind more than ever once the weather turns a little bit colder. It can be harder to get physical activity in when the temperature dips and you don’t have the long, sunny days working in your favor any more. Keep your goals in mind, and keep working towards them every day, even when  you know you’d rather be curled up in your warm bed on some of these upcoming crisp mornings. Labor Day doesn’t have to mean the end of beach season, or the end of your “skinny” season. It can mean the start of your fittest and healthiest fall/winter ever!

I hope everyone enjoys their holiday, and for those of you who aren’t in the US or who don’t have a holiday today, enjoy your Monday just the same!

What are your favorite things about fall? Do you get sad when summer ends? Do you enjoy summer fashion or fall fashion better? How much do you love all of the pumpkin spice goodies in the fall?!?

    I agree with all of those things you love about fall! Right now I’m especially excited for some cooler weather because my apartment isn’t air conditioned and I’ve been dying in here ever since I came back to school haha. 😛

    1. The cooler nights have been so nice lately, being able to sleep with the windows open and a nice breeze is amazing!

  5. ahhh the fall is the one time i miss being up north!! i love my sunshine but there’s nothing like fall leaves and apple cider!! and pumpkin spice anything is my jam…. i keep a candle going allllll autumn long just to feel festive 😉

    1. Ooh I do love a pumpkin spice candle, the smell is just so good and homey. And as much as I love summer, I really look forward to fall every year because it’s just perfect weather for outdoor things!
