Get Your Best Legs Ever
By Kathy Shwydky, BCRPA-certified fitness instructor, health enthusiast and writer.
Spring is officially here, which means summer isn’t too far off. Are your legs ready for summer dresses and shorts? If you’re like the majority of women, you’re probably shouting a resounding ‘NO’ inside your head right now. A variety of concerns prevent people from wearing what they’d like — and that’s not okay! In today’s world of filters and Photoshop, we all need to remind ourselves that nobody is perfect. Here are some things you can do to put your best foot forward:
You know this one already. Exercise boosts circulation and gives you those feel-good endorphins, plus shapely legs that look great in shorts. The best part about exercise in today’s society is that we have so many options that it’s easy to find a workout that is fun — yes, fun! Love dancing? Try Zumba. Need to work off some aggression in a healthy way? Punch and kick your way to a healthier and shapelier you in a boxing or kickboxing class. Need more Zen in your life? Breathe easy in yoga. Bore easily? Group fitness classes offer such variety you’ll never have to do the same class twice.
Eating right is important for all aspects of your health, and especially so if you are working out because your muscles need the right nutrients to repair and rebuild. Eating enough protein can be challenging, especially if you are vegetarian. An easy fix is eggs; they are a great source of vitamins, nutrients and have 6 grams of protein per medium-size egg. Mix two egg whites with one whole egg for extra protein without the fat.
If you suffer from poor circulation and varicose veins are preventing you from wearing shorts, there is an all-natural solution that can help. The two bio-flavonoids Hesperidin and Diosmin have been clinically-proven to get rid of varicose veins in as little as two months. When combined with an antioxidant, such as potent Grape Seed extract, the results are magnified and you’ll feel relief from heavy, swollen legs in no time.
No matter what you decide to do, your best accessory is always confidence. Wear those shorts and strut your stuff. And when all else fails, pick a filter (Instagram’s X-Pro II is a cult fave!) and move on.
