We’ve all heard that “Summer bodies are made in the winter,” and while that is partially true, it’s no excuse to let yourself fall off the wagon once the summer months roll around. Once summertime is in full swing, that means so are the barbecues, patio drinks and favorite warm weather cocktails. Here are some tips for enjoying your long awaited summer while still looking and feeling your best!
Workout in the Morning
Workouts can be tricky to schedule in the summer months, the gym is not where you want to be when you get home from work. Instead, try setting your alarm a bit earlier in the morning so you can get it done before work! Working out in the morning can kick start your metabolism and get you ready for the day.
Pack your lunch
Bringing breakfasts and lunches from home are a great way to be in control of your diet. Planning some easy to make, fast and healthy meals to bring to work can eliminate those mid-day stomach growls that cause you to reach for the junk food!
Take advantage of the beautiful weather and get outside! Swimming, walking, bike riding and hiking are only a few activities that the summer weather is great for. It doesn’t matter which activity you choose, as long as you’re soaking up some Vitamin D and taking in all the benefits that Mother Nature has to offer.
Summertime is for enjoying yourself, not for stressing about how well kept your summer body is. Summer is short- enjoy it!
