Is summer your favorite season? If yes, then we are sure that you can’t wait for the gorgeous weather to come, so you can rock some cute, breezy outfits and trendy bikinis! And, even if your answer is no and you prefer other seasons, you can probably say that you still appreciate a few sunny days and the energy that only the summer can bring. However, we all have something in common when we think of the upcoming summer: we want to get that summer body. That is why we bring you a few tips on how to get that bikini worthy body and be prepared to fully enjoy your summer.
Set your goals
This may seem like an obvious one, but you cannot achieve a goal if you don’t have a clear vision of what you want to accomplish. If you want a bikini worthy body, then you need to write down how much weight do you want to lose ? how many inches to lose in your waist and hips. Maybe you don’t want to lose weight but just want to tone up a bit. Weigh yourself and take measurements. Then, write down the exact weight and/or measurements that are your aim, and put that piece of paper in a visible spot so that you don’t lose the track of what is your final goal and to keep your motivation high.
An additional tip would be to search for some lovely swimwear online and purchase a piece or two that you want to wear in the summer. This will give you extra motivation, as you will know that your ultimate intention is to rock that cute swimwear with an amazing body.
If you just can’t get yourself up to go for a whole hour of exercising at the gym, opt for a different kind of activity, such as going for long walks in the park or running in the mornings. You can even opt to walk to work every day or park further away so that you get a bit of exercising done daily. Moreover, walking is extremely beneficial for you, as it not only helps you burn calories but it also has a positive influence on your immune system and your energy, among other things.
Join a gym
Now that you have already established a sort of exercising route, you can step up and add a bit of training that includes upper body, abs, and legs workouts. If your aim is to tone up, you may want to enroll in a yoga class or similar sort of exercising that is focused on building muscle tone. The important thing is to remember that you don’t have to do all of these exercises; you can opt to go to the gym on some days and to do yoga or running on others. Moreover, if you are unsure about how to organize your training, you can always hire a personal trainer, who will help you with personalized exercising plans and will also make sure that you stay motivated.
Eat and drink healthy
Your diet has a big role in your route on getting a beach body. Staying hydrated and drinking the recommended amount of water a day is useful for your overall health. In addition, water helps your cute swimsuit look even better on you, as drinking plenty of water reduces cellulite.
You should drink enough water, but also eat it. Your favorite summer treat, watermelon, is one of the delicious food options you can enjoy if you start craving something sweet. Generally speaking, fruits are allowed, as they are healthy, in contrast to candies and cookies, but you still shouldn’t base your diet on only fruits. Tomatoes, green vegetables, sweet potatoes are just some of the ingredients you can use to make a delightful meal. Don’t forget about the good fats in avocados and different kind of nuts, which can serve as a perfect snack.
Additionally, keep in mind that although you may be trying to lose weight, you still need food. Cutting out junk food is great but eating less than you need is not. That is why you should try to have five meals a day, instead of two or three bigger meals.
In the end, don’t get desperate as there is still enough time to get your beach body. Start on time and enjoy long, sunny days while rocking some chic bikinis.
