Its summer and you can’t fit into your bathing suit. What a bummer! This is the time for you to bring out the scale and find out how much you gained over the year. Would you do it? Probably not! But don’t fret, you still have time. Or at the very least you’ll be ready by next summer. So sit back, relax, and read on to find out marvelous ways on how you can have flat abs!
THERE’S NO EASY WAY TO BREAK SOMEBODY’S HEART
Sorry to break you bubble. But the potion for having a nice looking figure remains the same. You need an ounce of good food, a dash of exercise, and a spoonful of healthy living. You read this line and you say, “Oh no! I’m doomed!” On the contrary, it’s actually good that the potion remains the same. That means that you still have the power over your weight. It means YOU can make that CHANGE for YOURSELF and NOBODY else.
LET’S START WITH FOOD
The obvious discussion about eating healthy foods is that you need to take in more leafy vegetables, more fruits, more of that healthy stuff we all know about. What is not so obvious is that healthy foods start within the store. Yes it does. So here’s the healthy food advice. The next time you go to the grocery store have a list and follow it. Write down everything you need to buy, from the brand to the exact size you want to buy. Skip aisles that have junk food and sodas. Go directly where the good stuff are. If you really can’t do it, ask a trusty friend or relative to do the shopping for you. You’ll save on money and on additional fats.
THE DREADED “E” WORD
Exercise is not a fun word for most. It’s not fun because you don’t enjoy what you’re doing. Exercise doesn’t only mean going to the gym 3x a week. Exercise can mean a lot of things like dancing, swimming, running, and even yoga. Find out what you enjoy doing and cultivate it. If in your youth you loved to play volleyball, then go back to playing it. Find an exercise buddy. Get your husband or good friend into walking around the park with you. Try dancing for a change – ballroom dancing or aerobics. Yoga is also a good way for you to start shedding those pounds. Not only that, yoga is also a good form of relaxation.
Obviously you need to change something about your life. You could be drinking coffee, soda, or alcohol the whole day. Stop it. Did you know that water is good for you and your body? Sure you do! So drink water instead of sugar, alcohol, and carbonated-filled drinks!
Lifestyle change is important if you want a better figure. Get smoking out of your system. It won’t be easy but starting now is better than starting tomorrow. Get energized and have your fill of vitamins. Get a dose of natural oils like argan oil to keep your body nourished and protected from free radicals. These tips will surely help you fit into your bathing suit this summer!
