Summer Beach Body - Dieting & Training Tips For
wants to have a beach body but after holidays and extra pounds,
tons of time off and lazy cold winter nights, the last thing on
your mind is getting back on track with a diet and training plan.
Wish we could all just wiggle our nose and bam your
in your beach body!
Most of us are looking in the mirror thinking, its spring,
summer is around the corner, and look at those fat rolls!
Well dont be depressed and stop wasting time, get into the
gym ASAP and start with some simple cardio for Pete sake!!
I am talking to you, directly to you reading this now, and you
know who you are, you know you have been off for too long now and
YOU know its time to get back at it. Start back slow or if you have
been working out but not hard enough to see results, change up your
Maybe you have always wanted to join kickboxing or get some tennis
lessons, so this is the perfect time! Make a goal out of it and
then work toward accomplishing this goal.
Even if you were previously fit but took a month off, start back
with compound exercises and moderate weight before you get back
to your regular lifting. Be rude to your body and you will hurt
so use sense when getting back into working out. This is not so
much an issue if you did not take time off. In this case a change
to your program will revitalize you and get you excited again plus
cause some shock which means results.
Another point I want you to think about is if you do not get in
there now when its rainy or still cool out, you will not want
to go in when its nice out. Of course you can train outdoors
for summer but you do not want to be held back because you feel
self conscious about your body. Ironically enough, many people are
afraid to work out in public because they feel so out of shape so
they do nothing!!! Dont be one of them. Get your workouts
done, at home or in gym and make some effort so that preparing for
summer is a smooth transition from where you sit now.
Because you got to sew your diet oats during the past few holidays
you also want to think lean, thing clean and eat whole foods. Start
to think about the wonderful spring and summer food choices such
as berries and summer greens. The tenderness of spring greens and
sweetness of seasonal fruits can make you look forward to your meals
making your proteins and snacks a tasty treat in itself.
Here is a wonderful post workout shake idea you can use
to help you look forward to your workout and feel as if you earned
- a scoop of high protein powder with low carb and fat
- 2 tables spoons of oatbran
- 8-10 oz water
- ¼ cup fresh or frozen fruit of choice (such as banana,
papaya, mango, berries)
- 1 tbs of flax or Udos oil
- ¼ cup of non sweetened OJ
Now blend it all up in a blender or bullet and enjoy! If you prefer
not to use the flax or Udos then skip it and when drinking your
smoothie, eat a handful of raw, plain almonds.
Now work hard and get ready to enjoy some sunny warm weather!
