There are less than four weeks until Memorial Day weekend, and while we at Dan’s Papers can’t wait, we also know there are many things we have to squeeze in during the next few weeks on the East End, lest we lose our chance with all that summer brings. We know that if we don’t get out and do these now, we’ll have to wait until after Labor Day before we try again…and so will you!

We continue our countdown of things to do before Memorial Day weekend on the East End with #27: Get Your Body Beach Ready

There is perhaps no motivator for getting in shape more powerful than beach weather. However, if you wait for the first beach day to tell yourself, “I’m going to start exercising more and eating better,” it’s already too late.

A crash diet after summer has already started will either be ineffective or unhealthy and dangerous. The best way to lose weight and get more toned is gradually with good daily habits.

Now is the time to join a gym—or actually use that gym membership you’re already paying for—and sign up for fitness classes. Now is the time to skip the chip and soda aisles at the grocery store and head to the produce section.

Don’t let another summer go by telling yourself “next summer.” Get your body beach ready now, and also enjoy the benefits of having more energy and better health.

Come back tomorrow for 50 Things to Do Before Memorial Day in the Hamptons #26.
