We all got 6 1/2 weeks or so till summer! We want to be beach ready but some of us may not be sure how to prepare ourselves, to peel off the layers from our winter wardrobe into our new suit. The best place to start is to make mini goals that lead to the big goal! Maybe aim to work out more than you had the first half of the semester by doing 30-45 minute cardio sessions, 4-5 times a week and strength training on the other days. We all need to take note to be training all our muscles, not just our core; we have our legs, arm, back, and chest to give attention to also!
We cannot forget our diet affects our body and our workouts as well. Add more fiber into your diet by adding more leafy greens! Say goodbye to white bread and stick to whole grain or wheat. (White Bread just has way too much sugar). It is hard for everyone to stick to a healthy diet but if we plan our meals ahead it will make it that much easier for us to obtain.
You will start feeling a sense of accomplishment over the weeks and when it is time to reward yourself don’t reward yourself with food because that is creating a bad relationship with yourself and food. Try and reward yourself with a new pair of shoes or shirt.
6 ½ Weeks to get ourselves feeling confident and ready for SUMMER!
Hit the gym, run outside, or go on a hike! Let’s get active!
