Now that summer is coming to a close, it’s a good time to talk about maintaining your beach body through the fall. I recently stopped by the WNEM station to share four tips that will do just that!
Tip #1: Eat Seasonal Vegetables
Load up on veggies by heading to your local market to purchase some zucchini, squash, pumpkin and any other seasonal produce you like. There are so many wonderful ways to prepare veggies, including sautéing, baking, roasting and steaming. Veggies never get boring! So now that summer is over, it’s time to change up your menu and seasonal produce is a great way to do that.
Tip #2: Create an Indoor Workout Plan
Just like seasons change, so can workout routines! As the evening walks come to an end, it’s time to find a new workout plan that works for you. The cool weather may have you forgoing your outdoor workouts, but that doesn’t mean the workouts need to stop all together. This is why I have the 30 minute workout DVD, for people that don’t want to leave their house but still want to have a workout routine. They key here is, get something that works for you. Whether it’s a workout DVD or a membership to a gym, there is a plan that can replace your outdoor summer workout routine.
Tip #3: Drink Plenty of Water
Drinking water is a key to good fitness and health. Make sure you are drinking at least ½ your bodyweight in ounces of water per day. Add some lemon slices to kick up the taste! This is also great for detoxifying your body.
Tip #4: Dress in Layers
Take an extra few minutes every morning to layer up. This will help you stay warm and help your immune system protect itself. If the office gets too hot, you can always take off the extra sweater or jacket. Nobody enjoys being sick, so take extra precautions to help your body maintain good health.
As seasons change, you still want to feel confident about your body. Don’t let the cool weather fill you with excuses to stop your healthy lifestyle. You’ll look and feel so much better if you stick to these simple tips!
Wishing you good health and happiness!
