The cold weather is gone and summer is here so chances are you’ll be heading to the beach and slipping into your favourite bikini.
Here are some tips to keep you motivated and confident rocking your swimsuit this summer.
TAKE YOUR WORKOUT OUTDOORS
Working out doesn’t mean you have to force yourself to go to the gym. If the thought of staring at a blank wall whilst walking on a treadmill doesn’t excite you, get outdoors.
Trade in the treadmill for a hiking trail, the fresh air will do you good. There are plenty of body weight exercises you can do in place of free weights.

DO SOMETHING YOU LOVE
If you love riding your bike, make bike riding your daily routine. Join a dance class or if you’re impartial to Zumba classes, get your blood flowing and give Zumba everything you’ve got.
Just remember not to go overboard. You’re not about to change your body in a couple of days. Make sure you enjoy yourself so you keep going back for more.
Having a reminder somewhere in your home to help you reflect on your goals can help you make smarter choices.
If you’re a visual person, print out an image of yourself when you feel and look your best.
TAKE THE STAIRS
Avoid the elevator and take the stairs, weed the garden, or clean the house. All of these things burn calories without you really noticing.
They are things you can do on the daily to keep your blood flowing and your metabolism burning.
Unfortunately, this does not include alcohol ladies. Cut out the vodka and replace is with good old fashion H2O.
Not only is it great for your metabolism but it will keep your skin looking dewy and beach ready.
EAT FOODS HIGH IN PROTEIN
Eating foods high in protein will keep you fuller for longer and help you avoid the enemy; snacking.
Each one of your meals should include a source of protein, including meat, seafood, oats, eggs, or my delicious protein balls yummy!
If a tan makes you feel more confident in your bikini, make time for fake tanning.
Fake tan is a confidence booster but it also helps to give your skin a smoother looking complexion.
Plus, there is absolutely NO reason to sunbake because you already have a healthy glow.
JUST PUT ON THAT BIKINI GIRL
We’re always going to pick out little things that we don’t like about our bodies. It’s only natural because unfortunately, we are our own worst critics.
Get in that bikini and rock it. When you’re confident in yourself it shows. Own your body and live your best life today, not tomorrow.
