As we start to emerge from our winter sweaters, thoughts of fresh new things start to take root.
Now is a great time to celebrate the season and explore some ideas to keep you on track with your fat loss goals.
Here are 5 ideas to revamp your fitness routine…
#1 Cool New Shoes
Who doesn’t love a new pair of shoes? Why not reward yourself for getting your daily walks in with a new pair of sneakers? Spring 2014 sneaker trends are all about retro details, skate-styles and bright colors. What a fun way to put a smile on your face each time you prepare for your workout. Besides, ankles are one of the first places to look for signs of fat loss—so show them off!
#2 Sparkling Spring Detox Water
Steal a trick from the spa and add infused water to your repertoire. Infused waters are wonderful for burning fat and perfect for clear liquid fasts. A fast can be an excellent way to do a little spring cleaning for your digestive system.
Try adding the combinations below to water, sparkling water, mineral water or even unsweetened tea or herbal teas.
- Thinly sliced cucumbers and crushed fresh mint leaves
- Thinly sliced lemon and/or limes
- Thinly sliced lemon and crushed fresh mint leaves
- Thinly sliced lemon and thinly sliced or crushed ginger
- Thinly sliced lemon, cucumber, crushed mint, a fresh sprig of rosemary
