It’s almost the end of May, and before you know it summer will be here. As you prepare to adventure with your family on summer vacation, you can’t help but wonder: Are you ready to show off your exercise results?

If not, no worries. The solution is as easy as 1-2-3!

 

Tip 1: Cleanse Your Body

Enjoying a few too many extra calories on the weekends? Or maybe grabbing takeout on the way home from work?

Believe it or not, those tasty, yet toxic foods remain in your body longer than you think. This creates a buildup of toxins in your digestive system. The food you place in your body is an exact mirror of your energy outcome. So if you’re feeling pretty cruddy, it’s probably because you’ve been consuming junk.

Starting an Isagenix cleansing and fat burning system is a terrific way to kick off your summer eating habits and effectively achieve that summer body you are looking for. The versatile program is designed for those who want to lose weight long term using a combination of Isagenix protein-rich shakes, cleansing and nutritious snacks. Isagenix also offers systems for athletes and healthy aging.

Tip 2: Work it OuSt!

What you eat on a daily basis isn’t the only factor in weight-loss success—exercise is huge! When reintroducing your body to daily activity—especially if you sit in front of a computer all day for work—exercise immediately releases endorphins which boosts happiness and increases energy.

As you put together your game plan for fitness success, remember, it’s extremely important to mix up your workout choices. Find an activity that—literally—moves you. Make it fun!

If you enjoy being outside, go for a run or a bicycle ride. If you prefer honing certain parts of your body, strengthen your muscles through weightlifting. Or, if you want a slower pace, give yoga a try or walk on the treadmill.

Also, keep this in mind: Statistics show you are more likely to lose weight when working out with a pal. So go ahead and hit the gym with your BFF.

If you’re not ready to join a gym, invite your friend over to your personal fitness center instead.

That’s right: You have one.

There are a bevy of online workout videos on IsaBodyChallenge.com that vary from low- to high-impact workouts.

Once you master a certain level, it’s time to move on to the next one. For example, if you’ve finally mastered the low-impact workout video and are able to complete every move exactly as the trainer, then it’s time to move onto the medium-impact video. Once you’ve mastered the medium impact, it’s time for the high-impact video!

Either way, exercising is a sure ingredient toward your recipe for a healthier body and more energy. And from working out over time, you’ll feel increased stamina in your everyday activities.

Tip 3: Plan Ahead for Increased Energy

Sure, cleanses and exercise will help you lose weight, but with poor eating habits, weight gain and low energy are inevitable.

The point is that you want to build a healthy and strong summer body; and, after cleansing your body of toxins, now is the time to maintain your weight by being aware of the food you place in your body.

In order for any weight transformation to be successful, plan your eating and workout regimen ahead of time. Take 30 minutes of your day to sit down on a Sunday afternoon—or any day of the week, for that matter—and plan your meals and exercise regimen over the next seven days. Just like budgeting your finances for success, the same is true for food and exercise planning.

This means that you need to make your eating habits conscious. Plan sensible meals that are high in protein and fiber, and contain a health balance of complete carbohydrates and healthy fats. Also, attempt to consume meals that no more than 400 to 600 calories.
