It happens. We all get bored with our fitness routine now and again. But when you do, it can be far too tempting to start skipping your workouts. And that can spell trouble for you weight loss efforts. One way to keep things interesting is to try new kinds of activities. Hiking, surfing, mountain biking, or kayaking may be fun options. Or, you can turn to an old activity you loved as a kid, like dancing, biking, or playing sports.

When you change up your fitness routine, you help to keep it fresh. And that can help keep your body and mind challenged and your motivation high. Make sure to talk with your doctor before starting any new exercise routine.
