It is officially crunch time and you are out of excuses. With Easter behind us, it’s now time to ditch the candy, pack away the puffy clothes that hide the pudge, and get your butt back into gear!

It’s time to get your summer body back!

Even if you haven’t really thought about that fact that in a few short weeks the invites to pool parties and beachside hangouts will start rolling in, it’s ok. You can do this quicker than you think!

To be “beach body” ready you really only need to follow three simple rules.

First, you gotta get your diet right. We don’t mean you need to start some fad crash diet, but you do need to become mindful of what you’re eating, and how much. Cut out refined sugars and carbs (sweets, bread, chips, alcohol, etc.) and focus on getting your fill of delicious veggies, fruit and lean meats. Not only will this help with weight loss but it will help your immune system and overall body function if you’ve been slacking on the nutrition front recently. Also, don’t forget to drink enough water. Your body can’t flush out fat if you don’t drink enough water. Pro tip: add a weight loss “seasoning” to one of your meals daily. While it contains no actual flavors, it seasons your food with amazing metabolism boosting supplements that absorb quickly and pair with your healthy meal in helping you shed fat and water weight faster. weight loss seasoning

Second, you need to get moving. Exercise of any variety is a must for kick starting weight loss and helping shed pounds fast. Another great perk is if you decide to exercise outside, you can start to work on your summer tan as well! Something as simple as taking a 15-minute power walk every day during your lunch break can help you lose weight quicker because it acts as a catalyst to releasing endorphin’s as well as boosting metabolism. Adding in any sort of weight training exercise is also a great way to get your muscles toned and ready to rock a stylish bathing suit.summer party

Third, and this is actually the hardest one – you need to find the right summer style to compliment your body type. The truth is you can drop 20 pounds and still end up looking silly if you pick an unflattering suit or summer dress that doesn’t compliment your body type. This fashion rule applies to everyone, no matter weight or height. Even models would look terrible in certain styles. However, on the flip side of this, if you pick the right kind of shorts, suit or dress, you can make it look as though you just instantly lost 10 more pounds! Here is a great guide for picking styles that compliment your body type best.

Summer is almost here and that means no more hiding behind layers of clothing! Skin is in and it’s not too late to make a commitment to dropping those extra pounds that will get you down and keep you hiding in baggy clothes. Don’t hide this summer, drop the weight and let the insecurity fall off with it. Pick out a summer “power suit” and make it your best summer ever!

Hi there! This is my little blog project where I am trying to learn more about health, wellness and living a balanced life, while also sharing a bit of my silly side as well. By "silly" I mean sarcastic. And by "a bit" I mean way too much. Sorry about that.♥ - Anna
