Instead of Wishing and Wanting, Start Doing!
How do you want to feel this summer… FIT or jealous?
For those of you who live in the summer weather all year long, this would not apply to you But for those of you like me, we have a long winter season making it easy to become lazy. The summer is the motivator for people who live in colder climates for parts of the year. We look forward to wearing less clothing, being outside all day long, swimming, camping, sports…etc.
Most people have a goal to reach by the time the warmer weather creeps up. At the moment there are only 5 – 6 weeks before it is sweater weather, meaning we do not need to bundled up in thick jackets and big boots. After those weeks, there is about 4 – 6 weeks (in an average southern Ontarian year) before we can start dressing up in shorts and skirts again. I am hoping in 6 weeks the weather will be warmer than average. Here’s to dreaming (as I take a gulp of my protein mocha)!
Summer is my all time favourite and I would not want to look my worst when it comes around. As you all know I am having my second baby (I announced that in one of my emails last week), which means no abs this summer But I still want to make sure I am not going to gain too much weight and that I am continuing to strengthen my body to support the baby as well as have a good delivery. Don’t worry, I am not going to leave you hanging. I will still be around motivating you, encouraging you, sending you tips, tricks, recipes and workouts that you can do to prepare yourself for the hot months!
