Maybe you ate too much turkey—or had pumpkin pie with extra whipped cream—and now you’re looking to get back on track before the next holiday feast.

To the rescue are Patch bloggers with some tips for getting motivated and trying some new exercises.

Blogger Dan Cenidoza discusses motivation and how working out is necessary to staying fit and healthy.

“You can make an effort to get stronger or you will get fat, weak and sick,” wrote Cenidoza in his blog post Got Motivation? “Once I understood this obvious truth, motivation has never been something I struggled with.”

If you’re still feeling lazy or lacking motivation to work out today, read more of Cenidoza’s blog for inspiration.

“Have you ever noticed how you feel better on the days you workout? Find that you are more energetic? Creative? The immediate benefits of exercise are unmistakable!” he writes.

If you’re trying to get started or getting bored with your exercise routine, check out these tips in the blog Exercise 101: Burpees and Mountain Climbers.

“I am going to add two more exercises to your fitness routines: burpees and mountain climbers,” wrote Chris Aitken in theCrossFit Catonsville blog. “If you haven’t been doing these up until now, then it is time to seriously amp up your movements!” 

Read how-to instructions and find out how many reps you should do in the blog.
