Spring into Action
New Year’s is long gone. Winter is officially over. Spring has finally arrived!
Now is the time to spring (pun intended) into action with your fitness goals. The weather is starting to warm up here in Charlotte, so we’re getting a mix of low to mid 60s with an occasional 70 degree day.
As of today, it is officially less than 90 days before Summer! YaY!!!
I know I’m not the only one that wants to wake up in a bikini and live my best life this summer, right?! I didn’t think so! If you’re reading this, then you’re in the right place. I’m going to provide you with 5 tips to make the most of the next few months and start Summer with a bang!
If you’re not working out consistently, START. You will not see results if you aren’t consistent. Make fitness a priority and the results will come. I’m still taking on clients for April, so go to the shop page to book your session!
Check and track your eating habits. You don’t have to weigh everything you eat but choose the veggies over the fries and watch your portions. Here’s a great portion worksheet I use. I track my food on the MyFitnessPal app and it has helped me lose over 20lbs. And if you don’t have one already, grab a copy of my 90 Day Fitness Planner. It’s undated so you can start as soon as you get it to plan your meals, workouts, set fitness goals and more!
Buy new workout gear. It could be a new pair of shoes or a workout outfit or even a new headband. Whatever floats your boat. When you look good, you feel good. Burst into the spring with colorful, new gear to set the mood.
Get more active outside of the gym. Doing everyday activities burn calories that you wouldn’t even think about. Take the stairs, go for a walk during breaks, do squats during commercials. I aim for at least 10K steps a day that I track on my FitBit. Don’t have one? A pedometer or Apple watch works too. Just get moving!
Drink water! I cannot stress enough how important water is. Not just for your thirst but for your overall health. Most of the calories we consume is from what we drink. Sugary coffees, sodas, and alcohol are the biggest culprits. Does this mean you have to drink only water? No, but by drinking at least half your weight in ounces of water it ensures you’ll get an adequate amount to hydrate your body and hopefully you’ll drink less of the sugary stuff that brings on useless calories! (Example: A 200 lb person would drink at least 100 ounces of water daily)
