Get Yo’ Fitness On – Week 3

Hi, Friends!  How are the workouts going??  I, for one, have found them to be super useful and they came in super handy while on vacay this past week.  Often, when traveling, one does not have access to a gym, so these workouts are the perfect solution for someone looking to workout in their hotel room or other form of lodging without a gym.  That was the case for me this past week and boy was I glad to have these on hand!

10 General Tips for Staying Healthy this Summer

*Try applying one tip per week. Making too many changes at once can be overwhelming!

  • Don’t Skip Meals. Your schedule may be a little looser and your typical routine may be thrown off kilter. This is not an excuse to skip meals. Plan ahead to prevent this if possible! When we get hungry, we make bad decisions.
  • Stay Hydrated. People frequently mistake their thirst for hunger. Keep a water bottle in your car so you can ensure to stay hydrated when on the go.
  • Double Fist. On the topic of hydration, make sure you always drink water in between your alcoholic beverage of choice. This will help you drink less calories during the evening and make you feel better in the morning.
  • Enjoy Fresh Seafood. If you get the chance to escape to the gulf, enjoy the fresh fish that is available. Coconut shrimp is not what I’m suggesting…grilled is your healthiest option.
  • Be Active. Enjoy the beautiful sunshine and get outside!! It will burn calories and increase your Vitamin D levels!
  • Experiment with New Fruits and Vegetables. Visit a local farmer’s market and pick up an unfamiliar item to taste. You may discover a new way to add more vitamins and minerals to your diet.
  • Save Splurges for the Weekend. Try and keep sweets and alcohol for the weekends only.
  • Be Prepared on Vacation. Take healthy snacks for the car such as low-calorie popcorn, 100-calorie packs of almonds, or an apple.
  • Keep Grilling Healthy. Choose lean meats to throw on the grill this summer. Chicken, fish, and turkey are obviously great options, but lean bison or sirloin can make for a great burger.
  • Cook at Home. Have celebrations in your own backyard instead of eating out. When on vacation, buy groceries and stay in to save on calories and money. Anytime you prepare your own food, it is a guarantee you will consume less salt, sugar and fat.
