Check out these 10 quick and effective tips to tighten up your beach body, just in time for spring break!
1. Set a Goal.
Connect a realistic and achievable goal with positive affirmations to keep your mind right. #positivevibesonly
2. Make a Plan.
Keep your eyes on the prize (ahem, bikini time!) by planning and organizing your fitness, nutrition and sleep. Schedule your workouts into your calendar and don’t cancel on yourself!
3. Drink Water.
Studies show that drinking 16 ounces of water before meals leads to more weight loss. So grab your water bottle, add in a little lemon and take it with you wherever you go.
4. Get Your Zzzz’s.
So much research show that getting enough rest (7-8 hours for adults) speeds up fat loss. Try setting an alarm at night as a reminder to power down and hit the sack.
5. Zen Out.
Stress-related hormonal changes results in our bodies holding on to fat. Add in an amped-up mental state and stress eating takes over big time. Find a way to zen out to control stress-related lbs.
6. Hit the Weights.
Research shows that women who do weight training will burn an average of 100 more calories during the 24 hours after a training session has ended. Don’t be afraid to lift some weights at the gym!
7. Sweat a Lot.
Old school thinking is all about long duration and low intensity. But you need to include a mix of all intensity levels to lose weight. Try HIIT (high intensity interval training) to really scorch fat fast!
8. Cleanse Your Body.
Get rid of all the junk in your kitchen cabinets… and your mind. When you clean out the processed, sugar-filled and unhealthy foods, you’ll not only feel more vibrant but the weight will literally fall off. Jump start your system now with a one, two or three day juice cleanse and flood your body with the purest of nutrients!
9. Drink Daily Raw Juices!
Once your cleanse is over, keep the good vibrations going strong with daily raw juices. Replace sugar-filled afternoon snacks with a green juice and your energy levels will skyrocket (not to mention result in a tighter tummy).
10. Have fun, but stay healthy while you’re away!
Once your vacation finally arrives, celebrate all your hard work with some fun, but don’t over-indulge. Did you know you can freeze juice and actually take it with you as check-in luggage? Enjoy your spring break with healthy and happy choices for your mind, body and soul. #PressOn
