So after indulging on chips and burgers from the Super Bowl weekend, I had to ease out with a light breakfast this morning. I was running a little bit on groceries so I pretty much just made a smoothie out of all the frozen fruits in my freezer….It was delicious and kept me full until my lunch break. So thought I would share it with you all!
1 - Cardio: 30 minutes at least 3 times a week; switch it up with treadmill, elliptical, running outside, etc.
Cardio is good for your entire body & cardio will help drop weight everywhere. Treadmills are bad for your knees, so make sure you change it up. It’ll help so you don’t get bored.
2 - Modified Push-Ups: push-ups with your knees on the ground to completely extend your arms. 50 reps.
Great if your not to good at regular push-ups like me lol. Slims down your arms & helps them look toned. Keep your back flat, so your ass isn’t in the air. Won’t work if you do that.
3 - Bicep Curls: focus on your biceps for slimming arms. 50 reps per arm.
I’m sure everyone already knows what this is. Take any arm weights(you can increase weight as your arms gain muscle), have your back straight, & lift the weights to your shoulders. Easy to do if your just sitting around bored & it’s productive.
4 - Donkey Kicks: slims & tones the legs/butt. 30 reps per leg.
Helps tone the legs/butt. Get on your hands & knees, lift one leg up as high as you can get it, then bring it back to knee to your stomach. Obviously switch legs while doing this.
5 - Russian Twists: ab workout. As many as you want to do.
Too difficult to explain, so google it lol. Helps tone your waist & abs. I find it helps tons, my abs get really sore, & I get great results from doing these!
If you aren’t big on working out, just stick to the cardio. It’s healthy & recommended! If you want to focus on certain areas on your body, try the other workouts I suggested. I’m no trainer, but I do workout a lot & these are some workouts I found helpful & that I like to do. Please remember everyone’s body is different, you shouldn’t compare yourself to anyone. Don’t think you need to have a model’s body to look good or be thin enough. You should remember it’s not what size you are that matters, but if your healthy & feel confident with yourself! Confidence is what makes you attractive.
As far as diet goes:
-Drink LOTS of water
-Try to eat veggies everyday if you can
-Have full meals with protein & veggies. Fills you up & prevents snacking throughout the day. Especially important to have breakfast!
-Don’t eat junk
I hope this helps anyone that cares! It’s just a simple routine to help be in shape & feel good about your body. I can honestly say working out most days helps me feel good, feel confident, & I sleep good.
