Ok so winter is on the way out and the warmer weather should be on its way in (hopefully!). Bring on Summer!
Are you wanting to lose weight and get fit for summer? Well don’t wait until the sun is out and the temperatures are warmer the best time to start is now!! Then you will be ready and feeling good for when the warmer weather hits.
I know the temperature is still chilly outside and the thought of going out and exercising is overwhelming but guess what there are loads of exercises you can do inside.
You can use a treadmill, or rower or any form of cardio exercise equipment. If you don’t have the room then use simply jog on the spot or do high knees. If you have someone that can exercise with you then try some boxing – it is such a great cardio and strength workout.
You can do so many different exercises with just a mat and a small amount of space – sit-ups, pushups, squats, lunges just to name a few!
If you can get some small weights (if you can’t have a look at what is in your pantry or fridge that you can use instead – a bottle of water, tinned items- anything that is a little heavy!)
Try some bicep curls, shoulder presses, you can even hold the weights while you are doing the squats and lunges.
So that is the exercise covered now onto the food!
If you are not quite ready to switch to salads then make sure you are getting plenty of vegetables in. Stews and soups are great when the weather is cool outside and you can also make extra so that you have plenty left over for the week!
Lets start making the healthier choice when it comes to food and throw away the comfort winter foods that are so easy to turn to when the weather is miserable outside.
So let’s get started now!
