Hey, health enthusiasts and sun worshippers! We hope you're having a smashing summer so far, filled with flip-flops, fruity cocktails, and the occasional ill-advised cannonball into the pool. Ah, summer—the perfect time to let loose and have some fun! But wait, we have a little something to talk about today. Don't worry; it's nothing too serious, just a gentle nudge to help you stay on track with your health goals during this carefree season. So put on your sunscreen and prepare for some knowledge as we explore how to hold yourself accountable while basking in the summer glory!

Set goals... but don't forget to reward yourself: We know you're determined to stay fit and healthy, but let's face it, those ice cream trucks are devilishly tempting. So, set goals for yourself, like working out three times a week or resisting that third scoop of rocky road. And when you succeed, reward yourself with something equally delicious, like an extra hour of lounging in the hammock or indulging in a guilt-free dessert. It's all about balance, folks!

Find a workout buddy (preferably one who shares your love for SPF): Exercising in the summer can be a real sweat fest, and nobody likes to sweat alone. So, recruit a workout buddy who can motivate you, make you laugh, and join you in building sandcastles during rest breaks. Just make sure they're as committed to sun protection as you are because lobster-red skin is not a good look for anyone!

Embrace the power of healthy BBQs: Summer and barbecues go together like peanut butter and jelly. Instead of loading up on greasy burgers and mayo-laden salads, why not make healthier choices that won't leave you feeling like a beached whale? Whip up some grilled veggies, toss a vibrant salad, and swap those sugary drinks for refreshing infused water. Your taste buds and waistline will thank you!

Schedule some "me" time and don't skimp on the fun: It's essential to take care of yourself, even when the beach beckons. So, make sure to set aside some time for self-care, whether it's reading a trashy novel under a parasol, getting a massage, or enjoying a leisurely bike ride. Remember, summer is all about enjoying life, so don't skimp on the laughter, fun, and vitamin D!

HIT THAT PROTEIN GOAL! When it's hot and muggy out, eating protein may seem like the last thing that you want to do, but it is SO important for maintaining your health and not falling behind! Get creative with it... there are tons of fruits that go GREAT with a protein shake to enhance the flavor and make the shake taste a little lighter. Better yet, make some creamy protein popsicles to help cool you down while your baking in the sun! It doesn't have to be hard, it just has to be DONE!  

Hydrate like it's your job (and make it a fun one!): With the sun beating down, staying hydrated is a top priority. But let's make it interesting! Challenge yourself to try different fruity infusions or amino acids in your water every day. Who knows, you might discover a new favorite flavor and become the hydration guru among your friends! But beware of those seeds!

So, fellow summer enthusiasts, as you navigate the flip-flops, sand between your toes, and the occasional ice cream-induced brain freeze, remember that holding yourself accountable can be both effective and enjoyable. Embrace the sunshine, savor the moments, and keep those health goals in check—all while having a whale of a time! Stay cool, stay hydrated, and let this summer be a memorable one for all the right reasons. 

Be. The. Force!
