5 Steps To Your Spring Break Body
Sunny days and vacays are just around the corner. Whether you’re jet setting for spring break or planning a summer getaway, you are probably thinking about what to wear by the pool or on the beach. It’s hard to splash, play and swim fully covered which means you’ll need to pack a swim suit or two. If the idea of slipping into a swimsuit make you want to run the other direction, we're here to help. Lean shoulders, toned tush and legs, and flat abs are the coveted body parts for a bikini-clad bod, but the most important feature you can rock in is your confidence. Shoulders back, head up and a big smile can easily outshine a “perfect” body. That’s not to say we don’t want to be our best selves, which is why we’ve uncovered the 5 steps to getting a spring break body. Eliminate the Inflammation If you’re feeling puffy and bloated, the foods you are eating may be to blame. If your body is intolerant to what you’re feeding it, it creates inflammation that leads to bloating and difficulty losing weight. Try eliminating inflammatory foods for a month to see how you feel and look. These foods include: corn, sugar, soy, gluten, dairy, and peanuts. Sweat Everyday Elevate your heart rate for at least 20 minutes a day with the goal of working up a sweat. Not only is this good for your cardiovascular health but you’ll also be flushing out toxins and burning calories. Build Muscle The more lean muscle you have, the more calories you will burn in every workout. So don’t be afraid to pick up those weights several times a week. If the gym isn’t your zone, get to barre class. Wear What Your Feel Good In This one is really important. When you feel good, you look good. Pack the clothes you love to wear and don’t be afraid to show off the body you’ve worked hard to get. Drink Water You can never go wrong with drinking more water. Not only does H20 help your organs, blood and skin, but a glass of water before a meal will make you feel fuller faster so you won’t eat as much. Drink up and glow! Don’t forget to pack your exercise gear so you can keep up on your workouts while you’re away. Try this workout or this one for something quick and effective.
