As the first part of your plan, focus on making your diet as healthy as possible: cut back on processed foods, fill up on all of the fresh fruits and vegetables that are now in season, and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated. Experts say that you should drink at least half of your body weight in ounces of water each day.

After ensuring your nutritional goals are set, it’s time to work out that body! Your first step should be to include plenty of cardio into your daily routine, and with the warm days the best place to do that is outdoors. If you are stuck in class all day, use your lunch break to incorporate a brisk half-hour walk into your day. Instead of driving to the grocery store this weekend, bike there and strap on a backpack to carry your food home. After work, go for a jog in your neighborhood while watching the sun set. Get creative: think of all the fun and different ways you can incorporate cardio into your schedule.

Next you will want to tone all of those muscles that you have been working out, which might sound difficult at first. However, the good news is that summertime provides plenty of ways to incorporate water sports into your fitness plan, which helps you tone quickly. Swimming, kayaking, bicycling, beach volleyball and tennis are all excellent ways to build muscle.Whatever toning exercises you choose, you’ll want to pay special attention to your abs and glutes, as those are the areas most prevalent during swimsuit season.

Now that you’re well on your way to achieving your summer fitness goals, you will want make sure to continue to stay motivated throughout the rest of the year.
