We all want to look fabulous in our bikinis and swim costumes, but how do we do it? Sometimes it can be hard to maintain a rigorous diet, especially if you have a busy schedule to work around. No more confusion, because here are just a few simple tips on how to get that sexy body for this summer.
Walk Instead of Driving
Not only is it good for you physically, but the mental benefits are fantastic too. A few moments of fresh air is great for the brain and helps you to clear your head. It gives you a chance to think things through like ‘what holiday do I want this year?’ Or ‘where do I see myself in 10 years?’. If you’re walking with someone, it’s even better. This gives you time to socialize, instead of having the pressure of driving to ruin it. So next time you need to pop down to the corner shop, think about walking instead.
Get Down to the Gym
Working out at the gym at least 4 times a week, for one hour, is a fantastic way to get into shape. Not only is it good for your body, but it’s great for your mental wellbeing. It gets your brain stimulated and pumped up for the day ahead! If you’re just starting, take it easy. Whether it’s doing cardio or muscles, keep it at a steady pace for the first few weeks. Even if you’re unable to go to the gym for the day, slot some time in to do some exercise at home. A portable sit-up bench from an online store, such as Sportzbits would do just the trick.
Eat Breakfast Every Day
Start your day off properly and enjoy a healthy breakfast. You know that myth about it being the most important meal of the day? Well, that’s true. Eating breakfast stops you from snacking, and it makes you less hungry, which means you eat smaller sized meals throughout the day.
Cut Back on Fatty Foods
We can all agree that’s it tempting to eat that chocolate bar over the healthier options, but at the end of the day, it may taste better, but it’s not helping us to lose weight. Also, instead of eating a takeaway, try experimenting with more healthy foods in the kitchen. Not only does it save you money, but it’s a fun, new hobby to get involved with. There are tons of blogs dedicated to healthy and unique dishes, for example, Sprouted Kitchen to get you on the right track.
Lastly, be realistic with yourself and set goals. Losing weight or toning your body won’t happen overnight. Buy a calendar or a diary to keep track of what you are doing to achieve your beach body and keep working towards it. You could even use websites such as, MyFitnessPal which keep track of your calories and help you to follow a particular diet. Have a fitness buddy too! You and your friend/partner could set goals together and work as a team.
Follow these steps, and you’ll be well on your way to looking good for this summer!
