How To Shape Up For Summer

With summer approaching and warmer weather on the way, it will soon be time to bare our bodies again, whether bathing by the pool, relaxing on the beach, or being out and about clad sparsely in more revealing clothing.  So whether you’ll be by the pool, on the beach, on in your back garden, here’s some guide to trimming down and toning up, and making the best of yourself.

I recommend that looking and feeling your best for the summer boils down to three key things which is eating the right foods, taking regular exercise and supporting your healthy food intake with vitality boosting supplements. Rather than viewing food as your biggest enemy when trying to shed those pounds, try changing your perception and seeing food as vital fuel for fitness and well being.

Most importantly, ensure your diet contains plenty of carbohydrates, protein and fats, and all in combination for optimum health benefits. Carbohydrates, as found in vegetables, fruits and grains, are your main energy source and without them you’ll be feeling sluggish, tired and unwell. 

When you can make the time, making your meals from scratch helps avoid eating hidden preservatives, artificial sweeteners and hydrogenated oils. Most importantly, cut back on soda, dairy chocolate and package bought cookies, cakes and sweets. Whatever you’re doing, keep healthy snacks at hand to avoid temptation.

When shaping up for summer, you may feel you want extra support to complement your efforts getting your eating right and supplements can really help with this. Green food supplements like spirulina, chlorella, wheatgrass and nettle can be a useful addition to a healthy diet, providing vitamins, trace minerals, enzymes and antioxidants to nourish and purify the body.

Remember that supplements are like the super boost for your body, giving you that little bit extra, but you have to work on your diet and your exercise regime to reap the real benefits supplements can offer. Get these three things sorted, stick with it, and you will be feeling alive, energized and ready to hit the beach looking in tip top shape for summer!

Keeping Your Body Healthy by doing Exercise

Whew! I felt so alive today because I just got back into my workout at the gym. I really missed doing my firming exercise routine since I got busy this past few weeks. Now that December is another busy month for me, not to mention there are lots of special gatherings like Christmas parties, reunions and more, I really need to look my best.

Ive been doing my exercise at the gym at least twice or thrice a week.  I noticed that when I can’t do my exercise, my body feels so weak and I could feel my aching muscles that really needs to do some stretching and workout.  I know that most of us are busy with our lives and we don’t have enough time to exercise, but I believe that it is important to find a way to get a little bit of exercise .  I am not saying you have to go to the gym or lift weights every day, but what I am  saying is anything is better than nothing!

Even a simple walk around your neighborhood , go grocery shopping or running errands is considered exercising. These may seem like basic steps and even not sound like you are exercising but you indeed are. This is why it is important to realize that the little things you do add up to be a lot when you stop and think about it. For body conscious people like me, exercise is all about losing weight  as it makes you look fit and trim, mobile and happy even as you get older.  The most important factor there is that it helps in optimizing your overall health.

One Hot Sexy Momma

 

I was so amazed when I saw my cousin’s photo shoots from a professional photographer. Now I am enticed to have a photo shoot too. My cousin is also a body conscious like me. I remember when we had a lose weight challenge before where one of us could win a cash prize courtesy of my mom. The winner will be chosen if she lose her weight after a month. I won that challenge before but I think now if we are going to start another challenge maybe my cousin will win. hehehe! Just look at her gorgeous looking body. I can see her effort in getting back her body in shape.



She’s really a one hot momma! do you agree with me? I’m so happy for her because she gained back her confidence in wearing her sexy clothes again. I have seen her weight loss effort in doing gym exercises, watching her diet and also taking  some diet supplements. Way to go cuz! Keep up the good work.
