Five Tips ~ Getting “CUT” for Summer:
1) Prepare a weekly diet & meal plan – write each meal down so you can check them off. Lean proteins (chicken, fish, eggs), vegetables and fruits should make up the bulk of the list. Vegetables are a must! Go to the store and get the food and ingredients from your weekly plan. Prepare and package your meals for the week.
2) Do not let yourself eat past 9pm at night or this will be stored as fat. 😦
3) Exercise! Try and get out for a jog or something that will keep you moving and burn some calories. Even a walk is better than nothing! Do this daily, if possible.
4) Find yourself some inspiration to help push through (bathing suit season?). My motto is, “Work hard now and it will pay off later.” 🙂
5) Remember, one cheat day a week wont hurt you ( just like eating only one healthy meal won’t benefit you). I’ve been known to sneak some chocolate every now and then.
