Today is the first day of spring which means it’s only 10 week until Memorial Day! And we know what Memorial Day means, don’t we? That it’s ok to wear white again? Well yes, but more specifically Memorial Day officially kicks off bathing suit season. Holy pasty white legs, Batman!
So let’s be honest, if you had to put on a bathing suit right now, would you be happy with how you looked? If so, you are my hero! Most of us, however, have to do a bit of fine tuning before we can comfortably slip into that tankini or Miracle Suit. So let’s get cracking!
Here are some tips to help you feel better in your bathing suit and skin!
I kid you not, just a hint of color on your body will make you feel better.
Work The Big Muscles
Squats, lunges, split lunges, leg presses, push ups – engaging the large muscle groups burns more calories at rest and let’s face it strong muscles just look better. Think toned and sleek versus soft and flabby.
Burn Baby Burn
Torch calories with interval training. Whether you run, walk, ride the elliptical, cycle outside or ride the stationary bike, adding bursts of speed for 30 seconds to 2 minutes throughout your workout will increase cardiovascular function and burn calories.
Write As You Bite
Logging your food is the most efficient and easiest method to identify your dietary pitfalls. Eating too few or too many calories hinder weight loss. Find the perfect balance by logging what you normally eat for 3 days and look for areas to improve.
Now go run!
