Summer time = swim time! Swimming is super good for you, and it is super fun to do! I knew swimming was great for your health, I just didn’t know HOW good! Here are 3 reasons why you should hop in the pool this summer, other than to show off your 5 star cannon ball!

 

1. Easier on your joints: Swimming is an awesome way to exercise and be easy on your joints. Workouts like running are super rough on your joints and can really damage them in the long run, so swimming is a great way to avoid that!

2. Increased muscle tone and strength: Have you ever seen a chubby dolphin or a chunky fish? I doubt it! That is because it takes a lot of energy and strength to move through water. Swimming or water activities is considered resistance training because you are pushing against the water and “resisting” it, and it is well known that resistance exercises are the best way to build muscle tone and strength

 

3. Full body workout: Unlike working out at the gym where you focus on one part of your body at a time, such as arms or legs, water exercise works all of your muscle groups at once. It also increases the movement and flexibility of your joints!

 

Now go hop in the pool and get your workout on!

Are you and your boo looking for some fun, healthy ways to spend some quality time this summer? What could be better than spending time with your darlin’ and being active at the same time? Here are some super sweet ways to do just that!

Dancing: If you can get your guy to go dancing with you, then that is a sign that he REALLLY likes you. Go country line dancing or ballroom dancing or salsa dancing, any kind of dancing! It will get your heart pumping AND you can be spun around the dance floor by your boo.

Canoeing: This activity gets you off your phones and out into nature! Grab a canoe and your man and paddle away! Your arms will get a killer workout, and you will also get to enjoy some beautiful scenery.

Berry Picking: Summer is the season for fresh berries, and many larger farms let you pick your own. If you cannot find a place to pick your own berries, you can always find them at a farmers market! You can spend time together perusing the market together, and then bake something totally yummy with the produce you find!Alaska Berry Picking

Are you going to try some of these sweet ideas this summer?

Summer Fun: Paint Balloon Darts Game

Have you ever seen Princess Diaries? If so, think back to the scene where Mia and her mom are in their house, throwing darts at paint-filled balloons, letting off some serious steam. Did anyone else feel insanely jealous of them?! I know I totally did. Well, I have now added this activity to my summer bucket list, and I think you should, too! This is how you play “Paint Balloon Darts”.61cd4d6970b2e55742d48860371f5976

You just need some water balloons, some washable paint, darts, and a canvas or wooden back board! Fill a bottle
with a narrow tip with paint and use it to fill your balloons. Fill them up about ¼ of the way, and then tie them off. Use pushpins to attach them to your wooden backboard or canvas. After you have done so, stand back and let ‘er rip! You can have a group of people split into teams and compete to see which group can bust more balloons than the other, or you can just toss the darts for fun! If you use a canvas, you can save it and it can be a fun art piece!

I hope you ladies can use this fun game to let off some steam this summer just like Mia Thermopolis, Princess of Genovia, did. 😉

XOXO, Chels

Big kids can have a blast in the spring and summer, too! Little kids can’t have all the fun! Here are some ways big kids can rock the warm months.

Use an inflatable boat as kiddie pool. That’s right, an inflatable boat! It is the perfect size for a teenager to sit it, and it is small enough that the water will stay warm and heat up really quick. When you are sunbathing on the lawn or by the pool, you can grab a book and hop in your personal pool.

Inflatable twister. I seriously love this idea. Twister is already a blast, but when you blow it up and make it adult-sized, that makes it even better! This game is great for any teen party, and EVERYONE will want to join in! Twist away!

I am so excited to try these awesome ideas! Are you?Inflatable outdoor movie screen. This is a great idea for any summer or spring evening. Grab a group of friends, a great movie, a projector, and this cool movie screen! You can have the ultimate movie night! I cannot wait!

XOXO, Chels
