Now that it is officially spring, there are approximately three more months until summer which means it will be full-on beach weather in the blink of an eye. Not to pile on the pressure, but if you haven’t already started working on getting that body toned up, you’re doing yourself a serious disservice. If you start now, you can beat the need to do a crash diet later and actually keep the weight off long-term. Here are 4 tips and 7 celebrity beach bodies sure to get you on the right track.
Tip #1: Weigh Yourself
Don’t be scared of seeing those numbers on the scale. Weigh yourself everyday at the same time of day (morning is best) so you can set a goal, and know how good or bad you’re doing each day. This can guide you on what to eat for the day.
Tip #2: Eat Big At The Height Of The Sun
When the sun is at its highest (11am-2pm), that is when you should be taking in the most calories so you can burn them off during the rest of the day.
Tip #3: Commit To A Workout Regimen
Commit 30 minutes to an hour to working out at least 3 times a week. Whether you go to a gym, workout at home, or simply jog, working out is essential to weight loss, as well as personal confidence. Exercising your heart, boosting your metabolism, and building muscle all have long-term advantages far beyond just loosing weight.
Tip #4: Drink Water! (Lots of it)
This is a no-brainer, but we still want to highlight the importance of drinking water. While it’s a given that your body needs to stay hydrated, with or without working out, keeping it hydrated with water is the healthiest option and also helps to protect and moisturize your joints; regulate your body temperature; and clean your system of toxins among a host of other things!
