weekend is drawing near, with all of the parades, barbecues, and sales that the long weekend entails.
Of course, Barre Bee Fit encourages everyone, whether they are doing the Get Hot for Summer Challenge or not, to have some fun this weekend. At the same time, those of us who are working on getting in better shape, eating healthier, etc., need to be careful not to have too much fun. We don’t want to lose sight of our goals because we have a good excuse.
So this weekend, while you’re out enjoying the sunshine, it is okay to have fun – just try to make choices that err towards the healthier side. There are a lot of sites on-line that offer tips, tricks and recipe ideas, so we at Barre Bee Fit have picked a selection that you might want to check out if you’re throwing an event yourself, this weekend:
