One week left until summer. How are you feeling? We want you to feel great in your skin. It's not about being a certain size or a certain weight. It's about putting on that bathing suit and enjoying your summertime with your family. We hope that these tips are adding to your health and helping you get on track!
- Prep your meals for the week. Eat with a plan. - Let's face it. Our worst eating is when we don't have a plan. Impulse eating will sabotage your goals. You don't want to wait until you are hungry to figure out what you are going to eat. To set you up for success, use our meal planner and plan out what you are going to eat. Have some standby snacks that are ready to grab.
- Cut out most if not all alcoholic beverages. It's not just the calories that are the problem. Alcohol messes with your metabolism so you don't burn fat. Your body can't store alcohol. So, it pauses your normal fat metabolism as it tries to metabolize the beverage. If you drink, make sure to eat with a balanced meal so as not to spike your blood sugar.
- C.O.P. Daily (Crunches, Obliques, Planks) - Make sure you are working all parts of your abs. Make sure your ab routine includes crunches, oblique moves and planks. Follow us on Instagram for ideas.
- Add hip bridges to your workout - Hip bridges are one of the absolute best exercises for your glutes! Most of us have poorly developed gluteal and hamstring muscles because we are always sitting. It is not uncommon to have trouble activating these muscles because they are practically turned off. There are so many variations. Here's one to try!
Come back to us next week and we will wrap up the summer body countdown! We look forward to having a fun filled active summer with you!
