Here we go again, it’s bathing suit season. For many of us, the summer leaves us running for cover as it’s just a matter of time before the kids want to go to the pool and we will have to bare it all in the name of love. Kidding aside, who wants to spend another summer sitting in shame when you can drop those last five pounds and be the belle of the ball? Here are three simple (and fail-proof) ways to tighten that core and drop those five.
Let the Water Flow - Yes, we’ve been hearing for years about the benefits of drinking water, but for weight loss? Absolutely. First, when you fill your belly with water, you’re less likely to snack - and that’s always a good thing. On the other hand, if you’re not a snacker, water can still help. Keeping your body hydrated keeps your body energized, which make it easier to burn calories and shed pounds. Plus, if you drink fluids all day long, and you make the switch to water, you could be saving yourself tons of calories right there without even having to lift a finger. If you can’t stand the taste, squeeze some lemon or invest in a few packets of non- sweetened flavored teas, they’re easy to mix, healthy and taste great.
Move More - Before thinking boring exercise, give this a thought. Every day, when you go about your business, you exercise. Whether it’s getting ready for work, walking to your car, checking the mail, even carrying the baby to the grocery store, you burn calories. If you eat exactly the same as you do now, but find a way to add a few more movements into a daily routine, you will lose weight. It doesn’t have to be a spin class or a formalized workout. Simply take the stairs instead of the elevator. Park in the last row at the grocery store (as long as you’re safe) or pace while you chat on the phone. The point is to move and anyway you move extra - you’ll burn calories.
Sit in a Hot Tub - Hot tubs are fantastic for relaxing, easing sore muscles or unwinding after a long work day. But they are also the perfect environment for enhancing a weight loss program. That little extra push that you need to get rid of that final five can be accomplished simply by spending twenty minutes three times a week in the bubbly, massaging water. Immersing yourself in the heat of a hot tub raises your core body temperature, but it also mimics light cardiovascular exercise which helps burn fat. There’s a reason why folks who have limited mobility or cannot exercise are encouraged to use a hot tub. You will not drop three sizes overnight, but consistent use of a hot tub can substantially improve your efforts and get that final five off for good.
Summer is here and that means it’s time to finally get rid of those five pounds you’ve been cleverly hiding all winter. It doesn’t have to be life altering to be effective - grab a bottled water, take the stairs and remember to make time for relaxing in the hot tub.
