We can finally feel spring right around the corner and that means it is time to get your beach bod right! It has taken me a while to actually make these simple ways a habit and figure out if they are worth sharing but I can say that each one has become a no-brainer part of my every day lifestyle. Today I am sharing my 4 most simple ways to make sure I stay on track when it comes to not packing on extra weight. I am by no means a fitness expert either; these are honestly just easy lifestyle changes to incorporate into your daily routine that will make a huge impact on your body and overall health.
1. Drink enough water. I cannot emphasize how important it is to use a 32oz. (at least) re-useable water bottle. Why? Because if you make it a goal each day to fill it up twice, you are setting yourself up for success. If you tell yourself to drink 8 glasses of water a day, you may be setting yourself up for failure. Who has time to count 8 glasses? On the other hand, it is pretty dang easy to remember just two bottles (if they are giant enough). Easiest goal ever and makes the most difference in your skin, body, mood, sleep and overall health. I have a bunch of 32 oz. Nalgene Bottles in a basket in my pantry. They are my favorite to use because of the quality and wide mouth making it way easier to clean than the ones that have a skinny squirty mouth thing (I am so scientific with these terms, I know). (FYI: If you have an intense workout, you will definitely drink more than 64 oz. of water.)
