Hello, friends, and welcome to Spring!
And now that we’re all here, how about we commit to a new healthier lifestyle? We will get in shape and lose weight, so that when we don our bikinis and head into the ocean in a few months, our fellow beach goers won’t fear a tsunami.
The best part about this get in shape-and-lose weight program is that there is absolutely nothing to buy or subscribe to! As a matter of fact, you already know all the tools that we will employ, but I will discuss them in a way that will be totally relateable to you and your life!
Just think of me as Oprah. Without the millions. Or the hundreds thousands. The poor woman’s Oprah, if you will, if you can allow yourself to imagine such a horror.
Here we go!
Drink Water. It’s not your fault that Jesus turned it into wine!
Skip the Elevator. Whenever possible, take the stairs instead. Try to go to the top of the Empire State Building at least twice a day.
Load Up on Vegetables. You’ll know you’ve had enough when the broccoli in your supermarket starts screaming upon your approach.
Burn More Calories. I think this means that dinner’s not done until you see flames shooting out of the oven. Crispy!
Breastfeed as Long as Possible. If you weaned your child before you reached your ideal weight, resume the breastfeeding process now. Bonus! Hoisting a 90 pound middle-schooler on your lap is great triceps workout!
Walk More. Strap on a pedometer and get walking. Aim for 10,000 steps a day. To refill your water glass.
Do Your Workout First Thing in the Morning. Preferably in your sleep.
And don’t forget other successful weight losing tools, like getting your hair cut and shaving your legs. It all adds up!
Why now that I got this post off my chest, I feel lighter already!
Got any tips to share?
