If you’ve been worried about your quarantine body, you’re in good company. Many of us are in the same boat as we’ve spent the past couple months stuck at home indulging in comfort foods and baked goods with no access to public gyms. As social media has been flooded with memes and jokes about the “Quarantine 15,” many of us are ready to jump back into our health routines and get our summer bodies ready! And since Arizona is one of the many states that have gradually reopened, the team at Bodify wants to share some tips to help you get your pre-quarantine body back.
How To Get Your Pre-Quarantine Body Back
- Give up the snacking! We’ve all gotten used to being at home with easy access to all the snacks! When you’re constantly snacking, especially out of pure boredom, you’re ignoring your body’s cues when it comes to hunger and fullness because you’re not allowing yourself to become moderately hungry or comfortably full. Try planning out your meals and healthy snacks for the day to avoid mindless grazing.
- Get moving again! In Phoenix, gyms have been cleared to reopen so it may be time to get in some sweat sessions if you feel safe doing so. Gyms are required to limit capacity and continually sanitize, but if you’re not ready to go back there’s plenty of ways you can still get the healthy benefits of exercise. Try going for walks or a bike ride in the early morning or late evening when the Phoenix summer heat isn’t so bad.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Step away from the iced coffee and alcohol-seltzers and make it a goal to drink as much water as possible! To rev up your metabolism and assist proper digestion, increase your water intake according to your goals - the general guideline is to drink at least half your body weight in ounces. So, if you weigh 160 pounds, you should drink at least 80 ounces of water a day.
- Schedule a CoolSculpting appointment with Bodify ASAP! Yes, we’re open and taking appointments! While CoolSculpting is not a weight loss procedure, treatments at Bodify can sculpt, contour, reshape, resize and debulk parts of your body that are resistant to healthy diet and exercise. Even if you’re just starting your healthy lifestyle journey, scheduling a CoolSculpting consultation can motivate you to invest in your body and health and help you get on track! The expert team at Bodify would love to have a conversation with you about your goals - no pressure, no judgement! We are in this together and ready to help!
