Get fit for summer - START NOW

In February, the year really starts in earnest. If January allowed a cathartic, post festive introspection, February provides a chance to put health and fitness foundations into your body.
Whether its that summer holiday body, a  fresh start, a big day for you and yours, a landmark birthday, or a special night out to look your very best for. A steady paced, progressive diet and exercise plan can take you from zero to hero, in time for the start of the Spring, and well in time for summer.
If you haven't made a start yet, maybe its the ideal time to put on your trainers and get out for some gentle exercise. Get out and walk for an hour or two. Pop in your headphones and get your heart gently pumping, and lungs fully opening. The air is crisp and cold, and is ideal for keeping your body cool while you're up and moving.

Take a look at your diet. Break it down to breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks. Address each part individually. What do you need for breakfast? How does breakfast affect the next meal choice? Do you really need a huge lunch? Do you really need a big meal at night when you've done very little exercise during the day? If you can get two out of three daily meals absolutely right and nutritiously robust, then your body can start to work at optimum.
February can pass by without noticing and you have nothing to show for the first two months of the year. But if you seize the moment now, you can make your year in the next four weeks, and hit the ground running in March and into the Spring and Summer.
Start with this magical tip...
Drink a pint of water before bed. Drink another pint of water when you wake in the morning.
