Memorial Day weekend is coming up, so that means pool season (here in the United States) will officially begin in a week!
Are you ready?
If you're not feeling ready, there is no need to crash diet or start working out 3 hours a day. The point is to focus on actual health. Of course, as you become more healthy, your body will naturally go to a healthy weight and size for your body type. A slender body is not necessarily healthy, nor is a heavier build necessarily unhealthy.
Focus on true HEALTH and not size/weight. And feel confident in your own skin.
True health comes from eating a diet rich in whole, unprocessed foods: grains, fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, nuts and seeds, and naturally raised animal products if you choose to eat them. True health means moving your body every single day. It doesn't have to be super intense. Go for a walk or a hike. Ride your bike. Go swimming. Play with your kids (or pets). It's amazing how much of a workout it is to do EVERYTHING your children (or your dog/pet) does! Honestly, it's exhausting! They seem to never stop moving and can run, hop, skip, jump, climb, leap, turn cartwheels, etc. for hours! Follow their example and just have fun!
This is the final week that I will be doing workouts every day because this is my kids' final week of school. During the summer I drop back to 3 workouts a week, but I continue to run or cycle each day because I love it. However, I will continue to post daily workouts for you to do if you choose.
Make exercise and fitness work for you. If you find these workouts too long or overwhelming, try the Trim in 20 program. Each workout is 20-ish minutes long and you can do them at home with no equipment. And all you have to do is hit play and you can work out right along with me!
Here is what I will be doing this week, so feel free to follow along! And don't forget to follow me on social media for more health and fitness tips and tricks!
