Summer is Here!

By Margie Mack, MB Writer

summer 300x94 June Newsletter

Here are a few healthy tips to get you through the summer barbeques and lazy days at the beach.

1. Drink water!  During the summer days it is easy to get dehydrated quickly. By the time you are thirsty, your body is screaming for water.
2. Eat fresh foods like vegetables and fruits instead of the chips and dip.
3. Limit your alcohol consumption: Choose beverages that aren’t packed with sugar. An average margarita contains roughly 500 calories. However a glass of white wine contains about 90.
4. Seize the day! Nothing beats a morning jog on the beach. Wake a little early before the sun gets hot and get your cardio done on the sand. If you are at the pool, swim a few laps in addition to the lounging you are doing poolside.
5. If you do indulge in some summertime treats, watch your portions. Portion control is the most important thing when at those summertime parties.
6. Enjoy! Be safe and have a great summer!

Stay Lean With Weight Training

By Angelique Kronebusch

Every woman wants a lean physique, whether its a bikini body or a ripped figure competitor physique-like body. Time to ease back on the endless amount of cardio and train hard with weights!

Weight training is great for the body in many ways. The more you train with weights, the stronger and leaner you get. With proper nutrition, your body will put on more muscle mass, which will increase your metabolism and burn more calories at rest then with just typical cardio training. This means a leaner physique all year around, and defined arms, legs and abs! The biggest key is to not give up or quit after a few months. This type of physique takes time and dedication to your fitness and health, all year around.

Its time to change your attitude with your workout, and start lifting those dumbbells!
