Summer is just around the corner!
Tomorrow is June 1st, that means you have a good month to get in great shape for your bikini, shorts and tank tops.
What can you do in a month to get you ready for bikini season?
Here are some tips on getting ready for your bikini without going crazy or starving yourself:
- Make a plan! Write down your goals and map out each week.
- Empty your cupboards. Get rid of sugary snacks and tempting chocolate. You only have a month!
- Pull out the clothes you want to wear. There is your motivation! Put them on and see how they fit; imagine how they will fit in a month.
- Log your food. I love food logs/journals or whatever you want to call them. Writing down what and how much you eat can make a huge difference.
If you’re not motivated to do any of those things, give me a call or email! I will be happy to set up a free consultation with you to come up with a four week plan we can do together, in the gym, park, or your home.
Paleo or Primal eating; it’s getting a lot of attention lately. Have you heard of it?
Basically, if a caveman could eat it, it’s fine for the Paleo Diet.
Tonight I decided to try out this recipe from Paleo Works. Basically, there is not a flour crust, but a MEAT crust! It sounded different, but I was ready for a change.
Made it tonight, and it was delicious! I will post photos once they’re uploaded.
You leave the table feeling full, but not weighed down by flour and carbs.
Eating more fruits and veggies can only be a good thing. And if you’re trying to lose weight, the more roughage you eat, and the less simple carbs, the better your chances are to feel full and eat less junk.
Let me know what you think of the Paleo Pizza.
Stay Fit over the weekend
Here is a quick video on staying fit over the weekend. I hope it is useful for you!
I am lucky enough to have worked with a number of breast cancer survivors over the past few years. These ladies are fighters! They beat the odds and paid themselves back with the investment of health and fitness.
The inspiration for this article came from working with these wonderful breast cancer survivors here in North Vancouver.
Please check out this article in Alive magazine on breast cancer and fitness, which I wrote for April’s issue.
If you know any breast cancer survivors, which I think most of us, sadly, do, please forward it on! There is a ton of useful info in this article.
Let me know your thoughts!
