It’s hot outside! And to deal with the heat, we’re wearing less clothing to stay cool. And if you’re trying to drop a few pounds or maintain your healthy weight this season, summertime treats and hectic schedules can make it tough. So here are some tips to help you succeed.
- Breathe, sweat, repeat - Get out there and enjoy the summer weather. Go for a swim, a hike, or bike ride every day, even while you’re on vacation. Stick with it for a few weeks and that daily workout routine will become a habit.
- Grab that reusable bag - Head down to your local farmer’s market to take advantage of all the tasty produce available in the summer. You’ll get delicious, nutritious food that’ll help you reach your weight loss goals.
- Get out your calendar - Don’t let your summer schedule throw you off your fitness routine. Make sure you plan time for your sweat sessions so you stay on track, even with all your summer plans.
- Go easy on the summer celebrating - We love having a few glasses of wine, enjoying a barbecue with friends and beating the heat with an ice cream cone as much as the next girl, but all those indulgences add up. There are plenty of healthy swaps you can make to cut the calories and still enjoy the summer fun. Homemade juice pops instead of ice cream, grilled veggies instead of a cheeseburger, or just skipping the butter on your corn on the cob will help.
