Tips For Summer Vacation Ready Body

Dec 8, 2007
So here you are daydreaming about your much awaited summer vacation and imagining about all the great fun you will be having. But you stop in mid-dream as your visions get squashed with an image of you wearing an oversized shirt with hefty shorts to match or perhaps disguise and hide those awful body bumps that you wish you did not have. Like a little girl, you yearn that Cinderella's fairy godmother would magically appear and transform you into one of those fabulously toned women who get to wear yellow polka dot bikinis with lovely tans to boot. However, do not go into that hopeless forlorn mood just yet. Fortunately, there are practical and uncomplicated ways and means that you can do to get your body ready just in time for that summer vacation and a fairy has nothing to do with them. All you need is the right will power and a big dose of determination and you are on your way.

First step is to coach yourself into working out, to have exercise be a part of your daily routine. It is all in the mind, they say. More than thinking of the activity as a means to an end, you should consider your regular workout as essential as taking your daily meals or even brushing your teeth. That like these examples, you get to have unpleasant consequences should you fail to do any of these routines. It really is not that hard actually and unlike what most think, it should not take a big slice of your time. Consider this, some people get to spend thirty minutes or even an hour blow drying their hair but are too lazy to have a ten minute walk. Once you have convinced yourself, your determination will be more fueled than before and working out would just be a breeze.

If time is really your greatest enemy, you should choose exercises that you can do anywhere. You need not be dressed fully in your fitness clothes or have to be at the gym to tone that body. You may be surprised that there are ways for you to shed those pounds without too much effort at home, at work or anywhere convenient. One example is to do a couple of squats in the shower while waiting for your conditioner to set in or do some hip twisting while you are brushing your teeth. Opt to take the stairs instead of the elevator as much as you can. That is as good as an exercise as any. Doing housework is also great exercise. You get to stretch and work your hands while cleaning those filthy windows. Be creative.

A good diet should accompany your exercise regimen. This is key. It is advisable that you eat a number of small meals during the day instead of going for three heavy ones. This not only keeps your metabolism going but it can also control your cravings for a big meal with calorie filled dessert after. Watch what you eat. Stick to healthy foods like fruits, vegetables and fiber-rich recipes and snacks. And do not forget to drink lots and lots of water.
