Learn what's trending across POPSUGAR. Happy New Year! January is a time of new beginnings, resolutions, and brand-new outlooks. It's also a time of recovery from the holidays and keeping warm from the harsh Winter.> I'm hoping my picks will keep you optimistic, fit, and hopeful as you head into the new year. Give Blood With blood drive donations down, there's never been a more important time to give. Since January is National Blood Donor Month, head to the nearest Red Cross or your local blood bank to help someone who is in greater need than you. Resistance Band Winter is a great time to strength train. It's cold outside, and the snow on the ground makes it harder to go for a run or bike ride. Using a resistance band is a great way to strengthen and tone your body. Before you know it, bikini season has arrived and you're in the best shape ever! Get started with this medium resistance band ($11) from SPRI and this workout from the American Council on Exercise. medium resistance band $11 from amazon.com Buy Now Squash Winter squash is a big fave of mine. Whether it's roasted on its own or with other veggies, pureed in a soup, or used in dessert, its subtle, sweet flavor never disappoints. One cup is loaded with vitamin A and beta carotene, and is high in vitamin C, folate and fiber. And it's only 79 calories for a cup. Ice Skates As if I needed a reason to ice skate, January is National Skating Month so hit the rink and invest in a new pair of ice skates ($33)! Ice skating is something the whole family can do together, and it burns about 400 calories an hour. National Skating Month so hit the rink and invest in a $33 from lifeskate.com Buy Now new pair of ice skates from amazon.com Buy Now Calendar I always start off the new year with a brand-new calendar. I'm loving this one from artist Camilla Engman ($28) because there is room to write down meal ideas and schedule fitness dates. If you're in need of a food and/or fitness journal immediately, fear not. You can download my free journals right now. Happy planning!
