Spring cleaning your health
Whether you’re planning an upcoming trip or are just excited for bikini season, it can sometimes seem daunting to shed that holiday weight. It would seem that just living in a climate with cold winters could contribute to weight gain as we search for energy to keep us warm.
Below are some beginning tips for getting a healthy start to the summer months:
A healthy lifestyle starts with healthy foods. If you’re still accustomed to grabbing a fast food burger or even a gourmet pizza at every turn, your habits may have to change. Start swapping that pop or beer for a glass of water and eating salad as a substitute. Most places now offer salad in some form and you can even have meat added to it for your necessary proteins.
Though a full regiment may be hard to start, begin with a simple walk or jog during your open times, be it morning, afternoon or evening. From there, you can add stretches, join a class or begin using your tuition-paid admission to the Wright State Fitness Center.
Perhaps you have lost weight or have toned your muscles already, but does it show? Sometimes a shirt from a certain company will look good on one list of body types and not as good on others. This can even vary within the brand so don’t bar yourself from a whole company just yet. Look up some style tips for people with your body type or bring a trusted friend shopping with you. The right clothes can really make a different in how your physique is portrayed.
