Now that we’re full-blown into summer, let’s talk about summer weight gain.
You likely spent the winter working hard and if not, definitely the spring because summer was right around the corner and you wanted to look good. You exercised consistently, you were careful to eat more healthy foods and you watched your portion sizes.
Why? So you would look great at the lake and have plenty of energy to enjoy summer. Everyone wants to greet summer with a healthy, toned body.
But summer, in spite of all the fun and relaxation it brings, can be tricky and can deal us a cruel blow when it comes to our health and fitness.
Do you tend to notice the scale creeping up part-way through summer? If so, you’re not alone. Summer is a very easy time to overindulge and pick up those pounds that you shed during the winter months.
No doubt that’s not what you want.
Remember that bad habits creep in slowly. Perhaps you’re skipping your workouts a couple days each week, because ‘You have so much to do.’ Or maybe you’ve been indulging in unhealthy food or drinks a little more frequently when you are with friends. It happens-little by little. It happens one small choice at a time. Unfortunately, those choices add up fast.
If this tends to happen to you every summer, there are some things you can do to save yourself this summer. Really! There’s no reason to let another summer pass by leaving you with guilt and feeling embarrassed to strut your stuff in your bathing suit by the end of August. You can keep yourself looking awesome all summer long.
Here are a few common reasons that people gain weight in the summer and how to remedy them:
Don’t let the summer festivities undo all the hard work you’ve done to get you where you are right now.
It’s not about taking the fun out of summer, it’s about making the best possible choice with whatever circumstance you’re in.
