5 Ways to Stay Fit and Have Fun This Summer
It’s officially SUMMERTIME!
This might be tied to some kind of childhood nostalgia from having summers off, but it’s easily my favorite time of year. I love being outside as much as possible and between the warm weather and the long sunny days, summertime makes that very easy to do.
It’s also when I tend to travel more which can throw a wrench into my normal routine. So I have a few tips for ways I like to help myself maintain a healthy lifestyle without sacrificing fun and I thought they might be helpful to some of you too!
1. Combine Fun with Fitness. Planning things to do that are both fun and active is a great way to get a workout without having to go to the gym. Some of these might include hiking, swimming, bicycling, or just walking around and exploring a new city. One of my personal favorites is paddle boarding. It’s an awesome workout for your core and you have the freedom to jump in the water to cool off whenever you want!
While I think it’s important to allow yourself a treat here and there, it’s also good to keep in mind that you don’t need dessert or alcohol or whatever else tempts you at every single meal. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is all about balance!
3. Drink Low Calorie Cocktails. I’ve never been one to drink my calories but when it comes to hanging out and having fun, it’s very easy for me to lose track and throw back a 1,000 without even thinking twice. Having a cocktail that’s all-natural and low calorie makes it much easier to relax and enjoy myself without worrying about whether or not I’m over doing it.
One option that I personally love is the organic acai spirit from VEEV® which some of you might remember from my Superfruit Refresher Cocktails. Well the company recently came out with a new VitaFrute® cocktail flavor called Coconut Colada that’s made with the same organic VEEV® spirit, coconut water and organic pineapple juice.
In addition to the Coconut Colada, they also offer a Cosmopolitan, Margarita, and Lemonade, all of which are only 125 calories per serving and ready-to-drink!
Another thing I like to do is take the stairs whenever possible. It’s a great way to get a little burst of activity without having to break a sweat!
