Spring has sprung-at least in Arizona it has! I’m not kidding though, I still can’t believe how fast March flew by. I keep thinking it should still be February.  Any day now, we’ll be wearing skirts, tanks, and our swimsuits again. Sound fun?

I’m going to admit, I don’t feel ready for it this year. One, I’m not in me best shape. I’m not sitting here dwelling on that though. I know with a few, simple things, that can all get a whole lot better. These easy tricks help me slim down, de-bloat, gain energy, and seriously make my skin GLOW! I love that added bonus.

I know you are probably thinking, “Ok, come on with it and give me the tips already!”

TIP 1: WATER! Drink it like it’s your LIFE. Not to be dramatic, but you must drink a ton of water each day. Literally carry around a gallon jug. Bring that sucker to work with you, and use it to refill your regular water cup. While I am working at home, I keep my gallon on the counter and refill thought the day. Or I lug the jug with me everywhere. Extra tip: drink more water in the first half of the day. This way you’ll be sure to get it in, PLUS you will be hydrating your body.  A hydrated body doesn’t give your body false hunger signals.

Then the whole day doesn’t go by without me eating or drinking them. Yup, you heard me, I eat or drink my greens. I either make a big smoothie (green recipes posted on my website) and pack it with mostly greens, or I have a huge green vegetable filled salad later in the day. Double bonus if I have both in one day. Extra tip: having all these greens will help you kick any cravings you have. BUT you have to eat or drink them everyday! 

Tip 3: MOVE! That’s right, get your booty going! I know at home workouts are super convenient, especially in the winter, but getting your buns outside for a workout is super magical!! I always notice the way my body feels after a hike, a long

The fresh air, feeling the vitamin D on my skin, and not not to mention the beauty I can watch while moving are very therapeutic. Nature and exercise go together like Selena and Justin, chips and guac, and cheese and wine. Ok, I think you get the idea. Trust me, it’s like cheap (inexpensive) therapy. I’m not kidding. Anytime I’m in a funk or feel like crap, I get outside. I know it’s the quickest way to solving any mood I don’t want.
