The way spring is everywhere, finally, is amazing. We have gorgeous cherry tree blossoms scattered all around in our neighborhood, most of the plants in our garden grew their fragrant flowers, and everywhere I look people seem more active, like they’ve woken up from a long winter rest. ( including myself) Even in the NW, where it can be rainy most of spring, westarted getting lovely sunshine, and many rainbows in between. (That’s what I enjoy the most about rain; when it gets sunny after a shower, you get stunning rainbows 🙂 )

As someone who admittedly loves summer the most, and beach vacations, for me spring  marks the time I need to get my body ready for the outdoorsy months, and swimsuit season ahead.


Apart from my regular workouts you may have read about in the fitness section of TheBoxQueen, I’ve been finding myself more and more in super comfortable lounging dresses like this one, and sneakers taking walks in our neighborhood. ( find the full outfit details under the last outfit photo below.) In addition to getting more active, here are some other changes I am making to get ready for the warmer months.


Use SPF Every Single Day

I know we need to use SPF year around, and I do that, but it’s especially important to be consistent with SPF application as sun exposure increases. I am using a daily moisturizer with SPF on my face, and sunscreen for my body.


Take Healthy Juices With Me For Healthy Snacking On The Go

I’ve always enjoyed juicing; however lately I’ve been making healthy juices full of antioxidants from some great recipes I found. I’ve been mixing various fruits and veggies to take with me on the go. When I feel like I need a bite to eat in between meals, I just drink my juices and feel good knowing I am feeding my body great nutrition.


Take Care of My Body Internally with Daily Vitamins 

Along the same lines of feeding my body good nutrition, and taking care of it internally with juicing, I am making an effort to never miss taking my daily vitamins. (Sometimes I need reminders on my phone, and post it notes around the house for that) I take Nature Made’s Multi For Her (adult gummies ladies; they taste as good as they are good for you!) and Fast Dissolve Vitamin B12 as I need the energy for my fast paced life.

Nature Made is the nation’s #1 best-selling brand for quality vitamins, minerals and supplements* to help support nutritional gaps. It’s also the #1 Pharmacist recommended supplement brand in 9 categories.**

Find Different Ways To Be Active Besides My Weekly Workouts

I find that my body is at its best when I make being active a lifestyle, instead of just working out couple times a week. As we are having more dry days lately, (not that rain stops me, I run under rain every week) I’ve been finding ways to keep active besides my “formal” workouts.

I take more walks with my dog, hike around the trails in my neighborhood, play around with the exercise stations in the said trails, (see above haha) meet with friends for power walks before coffee, and play basketball with my kids.
