Summertime gets so busy and there are so many weddings, pool parties and family gatherings to attend, we all want to look our best.  How can you continue to see results from your workouts? 1.  Make sure you never plateau with your progress, by continuing to mix up your weightlifting/cardio routines ( wrote about changing reps on 7/ 6    blog.  2. Remember when your weight training, don't rest for long periods of time in between sets. When you have more rest time, it  allows your heart rate to fall and doesn't keep your metabolism burning calories.   3. Don't eat empty carbs ( white bread, white rice, muffins/cakes, white bagels) that cover over those strong muscles you're creating.  4.  Eat 5 to 6 meals a day ( a.m. and p.m. snacks are smaller, but still packed with protein and nutrients like roasted or raw unsalted almonds, or low fat cottage cheese with berries, or an apple with almond butter)[See tomorrows blog for more details].
