So fall is right around the corner and winter won't be too far behind, which means you're looking for ways to keep your summer body all year long. You were able to get that summer body because you worked so hard for it. But now that fall and winter will be rearing their semi- beautiful heads, are you going to allow your body to go into hibernation mode? Or do you want to keep that summer body all year? There are plenty of ways to keep your summer body all year long even in heavy sweaters, coats, and boots.
Ok so... you've been working out all summer right? Your body might be used to it and you might've developed a habit (this is a good thing, it means that this has become second nature). A lot of people eat more in the fall and winter months, hit the gym, and bulk up. Overall, they lose that "Beach Body" look. You don't have to though. Things you can do follow so keep reading.
1 Do Circuit Training
Not only does circuit training combine cardio and strength training but it also has HIIT workouts (high intensity interval training). This is one of the best ways to keep your summer body all year long.
2 Plan Your Workouts Ahead of Time and Prepare for the PAIN
This is true for anyone, especially if you're going to the gym. This will help you track your progress and help eliminate injuries.
3 Make Sure Your Diet Consists of Unrefined Foods
Cut out simple carbs, sugars, and saturated fats. Instead eat complex carbs, fruits, and veggies.
4 Eat Light at Night, Especially Late at Night
Stay away from simple carbs at night because they will get stored as fat since you're not doing anything. Instead, eat vegetables as a snack.
5 Drink LOTS of Water
Cold, warm, room temperature - it doesn't matter as long as you keep your body hydrated. Try drinking water 30 minutes before a meal and you will eat less since you've already filled up on water.
6 Change is GOOD
Have a variety of exercises to do. Don't keep working the same muscles all the time. Change it up.
7 Don't Stuff Yourself or Starve Yourself
Eat enough calories. Eating too few calories makes your body hold on to fat. You need enough fuel so don't restrict it too much.
8 Eat an Apple
Apples are known to boost brown fat, which is important for weight loss. Don't worry - it's not the flab you carry around - that's white fat.
Exercising helps you burn calories and shed fat, helping in the circulation of your blood producing healthy weight loss.
10 Turn down Your Thermostat or Go out in the Cold for a Few Minutes
Cold weather makes the body burn more calories. This is why you see people jogging outside in the dead of winter. The more the body shivers, the more calories are burned. Cold also converts white fat to brown fat.
Even in your sleep, you are burning calories and getting enough sleep is important for controlling hunger hormones and giving you the energy to workout.
I hope this helps in your journey during the cold months that are coming our way.
