It's can be very hard for somebody with an infant or little child to find time to work out.
Believe me, I know how occupied us moms are and we constantly have to attend to our children and their needs.
This is not only time consuming but also very tiring. Mom may be irritable, lethargic and tired of life.
This is precisely why every busy mom needs to take some time out to de-stress with exercise and eat right.
Do not neglect your health. You need to be strong for your child.
These 5 tips will make your training and diet more productive.
You do not need to put up with the flab just because you gave birth. These tips will burn off your fat and they'll revive you… But only if you apply them.
You'll look better and your friends and family will comment, that for a mother, you have an incredible body.
1. Stop engaging in time wasters
Surfing on the internet for celebrity gossip, looking at pictures on Facebook, following the soap opera on TV where the heroine’s partner might have died at sea are activities that will not help you.
You’ll be surprised at how much time you have when you actually cut out these activities. So, cut them out and take some time to exercise. It will do wonders for your health and outlook on life.
You do not need to exercise for hours daily. Even 10 minutes of exercise can raise your metabolic rate and kick-start your body’s fat burning mechanism.
Write down a few workouts that you can complete in about 10 to 15 minutes. Every time you get 10 or 15 minutes to spare, do them.
Did you know that even 10 minutes of skipping can burn fat? Imagine if 3 times during the day you found pockets of time where you had nothing to do and quickly skipped for 10 minutes?
You would have worked out for half an hour. That’s fantastic.
2. Train at home
There is absolutely no need to go to a gym to lose weight.
You don't need to spend a lot of money on fancy workout equipment. I've designed a lot of targeted workouts that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Anyone can sign up to join my Online Personal Training Site –>The Forever Fit Challenge
Or just take a look at my blog, and you'll see I have created a lot of great “home workout” or “body weight exercise” videos that are completely free!
A brisk powerful set of burpees, half squats and mountain climbers will leave you exhausted. 10 reps for 3 sets. You should build up your fitness to a level where you can do it in about 12 to 15 minutes.
Watch how you gasp and sweat. Do this twice a day and watch your fitness level improve.
3. Get on a Fat Burning nutrition plan..
You do not need to strive for abs but if you eat healthy and wholesome foods in the right amounts, you will lose weight automatically. You will feel better and look better.
As a busy Mom of 3 myself, I designed my book, which you can get here –> Bikini Body Recipes especially for other busy Moms who want quick, easy and slimming recipes.
4. Drink lots of water
Your body needs water to metabolize fat. Drink lots of it.
5. Set daily goals
A new-born child is life-changing. Very often parents dedicate all their spare time to their kids and forget to look after themselves. This is understandable. However, it would be a good idea to put some time aside for yourself to exercise.
You need to take care of yourself for your children. Set daily, incremental goals to exercise, eat right and aim for a happy, healthy body.
These are my five tips that should be followed by any mom who wants to lose weight and look good.
Yours in Health,
