Somaya Reece: The Real Deal About A 30-Day Summer Slimdown
Summer is coming in a few weeks, baby! But are you summer ready? The answer doesn’t matter because Somaya Reece is going to help you get there. Many of us battle everyday with balancing eating right and working out. It’s no secret that this happens to all of us. However, it doesn’t have to be this way forever. If you fall off a few times, don’t get too down on yourself to a point that you give up. You wouldn’t slash all your tires just because you got one flat would you? No!
Somaya gave us at Mommynoire some realistic goals you can set for yourself in preparation to get summertime (and lifetime) fine. It takes 21 days of consistent behavior to turn something into a habit, so with these 30 days of doing something very realistic, you’ll be golden. There are no crazy cardio sessions, no unrealistic diets, no gimmicks, just something you can take with you beyond the next 30 days. Stick to this, and if you do you’ll see a huge difference in your body in just 30 days. Really.
Workout. Yeah, we know you are thinking BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH. Here’s the thing: in order for you to see real results you must work out in addition to eating clean. You don’t have to go super hard. but if you commit to four workouts a week, you’ll see results. A small commitment to working out is better than no commitment at all. If you hate the cardio machines, try taking any cardio class offered by your gym. Don’t have a gym? Go on YouTube and search for cardio exercises you like. Cost? Free 99. Or you can buy a workout DVD and do it at home. Think in 10 and 2’s–do 2 sets of 10 for every part of your body.
Example: 2 sets of 10 ab crunches, 2 sets of arm curls with 5-10 pound dumbbells (or without), 2 sets of 10 bench dips, 2 sets of 10 squats, 2 sets of 10 of everything and BOOM you have a complete, full body workout.
