The most common comments from moms who are trying to begin training to transform their bodies are, “I don’t have much time to spend working out”, “I want to tone up”, “I want to lose weight”.
Not falling off track is the hardest part of working out and eating healthy. If you stick to a strict regiment you will get results. If you stick to your exercise routine and a good do-able diet, your body will transform in no time.
When it comes to exercise, you want to make sure that your routine consists of full body workouts that incorporate cardio conditioning. For instance a run, stairs, or sprints. This will allow your body to will up your heart rate as well as your metabolism. It only takes 20-30 minute to get a full body workout and it also doesn’t require a machine if you do not want to go to the gym. Take a look at the video below to get a look at what type of body exercises you should be doing.
Diet is one of the most important things you want to keep track of as well when it comes to losing weight and toning up. It is very important for you to be accountable for what you eat. It is often that women give up after a couple of weeks because they can’t stick to the diet. People are often times over-eating, not eating enough or just eating junk and this is not the right way to go about a transformation because it is extremely important to compliment your workouts with a steady and healthy diet. An easy way to watch your eating is by counting calories. This can be done through an app on your phone which makes it easy for you not to cheat because it will track what you eat in a meal or snack. You can always treat yourself every few days to a cheat meal, which will be a way of rewarding yourself for doing so well.
Another key to healthy diet is to drink lots and lots of water and try to only drink water as your choice of beverage. If it is hard for you to drink just plain water, try adding something tasty to it like a lemon, cucumber or fruit.
An easy way to help you stay on track is if you have an event coming up or something you want to look good for, keep reminding yourself of it. This will help keep you motivated and prevent you from throwing the towel.
