Looking forward to summer? You’re probably also looking for ways to support your wellness goals as you start shedding your winter clothes. Fortunately, warmer months bring many opportunities to stay motivated, boost your well-being and achieve your personal best weight.
Here are seven ways to dive into the summer season while working toward your weight management goals — because everyone's unique goals require a unique approach!
1. Get out and get moving!
There’s nothing like warmer weather to inspire you to get outside and enjoy the fresh air and sunshine. Now’s the perfect time to revisit your favorite outdoor activities — and maybe try a few new ones. Whether you like to walk, run, hike or bike, moving your body helps you meet your wellness goals and have fun at the same time. Dust off that tennis racket, get out the yoga mat or head to the pool and you’ll reap the benefits of your more active lifestyle. Make sure to consult your healthcare provider when starting any new exercise program.
2. Focus on hydration
Staying hydrated is even more important in the summertime due to hotter temps and increased time spent outdoors. Keep a water bottle handy at all times to sip throughout the day — this will help you reset, recharge and feel your best.
3. Boost your metabolism
Supplement daily activity with a delicious way to refuel and boost your metabolism. Try Metabolism Boost® smoothies from Smoothie King in one of three varieties: Strawberry Pineapple, Mango Ginger or Banana Passion Fruit. Metabolism Boost® smoothies have under 270 calories in a 20-ounce with at least 16 grams of protein, are fueled with naturally derived green tea extract and caffeine to help boost your metabolism and are an excellent source of protein and fiber.
4. Keep it low-cal
If you're looking to reduce your calorie intake, you don’t have to sacrifice flavor. Smoothie King’s Slim-N-Trim™ smoothies are made with fewer calories to help you crush your goals and set your sights on the next one. These smoothies offer fiber, enough protein to replace a meal and under 250 calories in a 20-ounce serving. Better yet, they come in five delicious flavors: Blueberry, Chocolate, Vanilla, Strawberry and Veggie.
5. Be a Keto champ
If you're a fan of the Keto diet, you’ll be happy to know you can pick up the perfect breakfast or lunch option with a Keto Champ™ smoothie from Smoothie King — providing under 9 net carbs in a 20-ounce serving and three flavor options: Berry, Chocolate and Coffee.
6. Join a community
Having the support and camaraderie of people with similar goals helps you stay on track with your own. Joining a walking club, playing a sport with friends or starting a health and wellness support system can make working toward your goals not only more attainable, but a lot more fun.
