Shew. Summer is finally here. And so is the perfect weather for celebrating the holiday weekend. First and foremost I want to thank all of our troops who work and have worked tirelessly to protect our country and also to remember those who gave their lives defending our freedom.
As summer BBQs and parties are coming in full force and bikini season is here, let's chat about a few summer tips to keep the tummies full of good nutrients and the bods looking hot.
1. Eat a nutritious pre-BBQ meal.
If you know you are going to a cookout and that there will be tons of tempting not-so-healthy items, eat before and leave room for one of your favorite items. I.e. Grandma's turtle brownie.
2. Bring a healthy dish to the BBQ you can share and enjoy!
We have all seen the cute Pinterest cocktail cups with dip in the bottom and veggies sticking out...bring em!!! They look adorable and are a safe snack to munch on without adding to the waistline.
Hello?!? It's beautiful out! If you are trapped at a grad party and can't get a good workout in, start a game of backyard whiffle ball! You can def get active for 30 minutes, it's fun....and you are killing two birds with one stone! Eric and I golfed last night and I'm so sore today! Like I didn't know I even had these muscles.
It's one of the best cardio options around. Torch tons of calories without putting the stress on your joints! Plus you can get a head start on that tan!
Chug, chug, chug. Get three liters in! It's hot, you are sweaty...you definitely need to rehydrate! Plus it helps you feel full :)!
I AM A 30-SOMETHING, FOOD-LOVING, FITNESS-OBSESSED, DIY-ING, WORK-A-HOLIC, DOGGY-MOMMY AND WIFEY.....THAT DECIDED TO SHARE MY LIFE WITH YOU. WELCOME AND ENJOY!
