Summer is already here! And for some reason getting outside seems a little extra special when it can be enjoyed safely. So here are a few tips to help get you into the best shape of your life while enjoying the beach or hanging out poolside with your friends?
If you’re still feeling a bit self-conscious, we have three tips to help motivate you.
Tip 1: Say Goodbye to junk and processed foods
The food you place in your body is an exact mirror of your energy outcome. Therefore, if you’re feeling not-so-great, it’s probably because you’ve been consuming junk! “Mr. Always On.” You know who he is. He’s the one tiredly juggling family and work commitments; trying to keep up with the bills and the constant texts and emails; and the one driving through the fast-food lane or eating dinner out of a box because there’s no time to cook.
It’s hard to feel great when Mr. Always On is in charge. The trillions of bacteria living in your gut have a role in everything from digestion to heart health to what your mood will be on any given day. If the bacterial balance gets out of whack, your vitality could suffer. So how do you keep your gut happy? Simple. Feed the “good” bacteria and keep the “bad” bacteria from taking over. Cloud 9 Life's 3-in-30 Systemcan help you do that. Once you have addressed your gut health and properly restored balance, choose a Weight Control Bundle to ignite your results.
Tip 2: Work Out
Developing and creating healthy habits is one of the first steps to success in any weight loss journey, whether you choose to make better nutritional choices or exercise more each week. The key to creating habits that stick is to start small and not overwhelm yourself by trying to change everything at once. Start with adding a walk to your week, not daily five-mile runs, a new diet plan, and nightly meditation. Less is more when you’re trying to stay with it.
Find an activity that—literally—moves you. Make it fun! If you enjoy being outside, go for a scenic jog or bike ride. If you prefer to tone certain parts of your body, strengthen your muscles by weightlifting. (Women especially: Don’t be afraid to lift weights! Weightlifting can build more muscle, which will help you burn more fat!) Or if you’re looking for a slower pace, give yoga a try, or take a walk on your gym’s treadmill with various inclines and speeds.
Tip 3: Plan Ahead
For any weight transformation to be successful, plan your eating and workout routine ahead of time. Take 30 minutes out of your day to sit down on a Sunday afternoon—or any day of the week for that matter—and plan your meals and exercises over the next seven days. Just like budgeting your finances for success, the same is true for food and exercise planning.
Be sure to plan sensible meals that are high in protein and fiber and contain a balance of complete carbohydrates and good fats.
