Summer is the perfect time to get into shape. However, making necessary changes to your diet and exercise routine can seem quite overwhelming; trust me I’ve been there. I’ve found that by focusing on one simple food and fitness goal a day, I’m able to make great strides towards my overall health. Need a little help and motivation? Follow these unique ideas to 5 days of food and fitness.

5 Days of Food and Fitness

1. Move it Monday – Start your week off right with a nice cardio workout. Make a goal to perform at least 30 minutes of cardio throughout your day. This could include walking up and down the stair during lunch, doing some Zumba routines on Youtube, or pushing the stroller around at the park. You don’t need a gym membership to get your cardio in.

2. Fruits and Veggies Tuesday – Eat a serving of fruits and veggies with every meal…ya, that’s right, even breakfast. This could be something as simple as an omelet with peppers and onions paired with Fruit in a Jar.

3. Relaxation Wednesday – Take time to meditate and relax from your various daily stressors. Stress can take quite the toll on your body so it’s important to know what de-stressing methods work for you. For me, I enjoy doing yoga, deep breathing exercises, and soaking in a hot bath.

4. No Electronics Thursday – Turn your electronics off and get outside. By turning off your electronics for one day, you’ll be surprised just how much more time you have to devote to exercise and cooking healthy meals.

5. Healthy Eats Friday – In order to improve your overall health, it’s important to make sure you’re eating a balanced and nutritious breakfast every morning. Make a conscious effort to eat a healthy breakfast. Want to know my new favorite breakfast recipe? You’ve got to try this Greek Yogurt parfait.
