It’s time of the week for the HEALTHY DIET TIP post! Yay! Haha. Now I have no idea how many weeks these Healthy Diet Tips will be appearing for but let’s just jump into this week’s: All About That Workout.
Now I know better than anyone what it’s like to absolutely not be bothered to do that workout/exercise that I know is so good for me (and good for losing some pounds/kgs) and over the years I’ve gained some really amazing tips.
1) Join an exercise class of something you like!
Exercising with other people, and in a class, is so effective in keeping you motivated. You can’t just not turn up to a weekly class, people notice, and you’re wasting your money (don’t worry, it doesn’t have to be a lot of money). And choose a class you like! If you know that you hate cycling, don’t take the spin class, you’ll just hate waking up on that morning with the thought “urgh I have spin today!” Rather take something like Zumba or Yoga or Pilates or Dancercise or Boxercise or…. The choices honestly never end. If you don’t want to pay to join a class, not a problem! Just find a friend and just exercise with them, every week for a set amount of time. It’d be so much fun.
2) Sustainable rather than bursts!
Instead of deciding that you want to do a 4 hr long workout every week and then doing the first one and never want to workout ever ever again, think realistic! Maybe say to yourself: “I’ll work out 2 or 3 times every week for 15 minutes each for this month, and then increase the time every month.” This will keep you motivated and achieve a much better long time result.
3) The only better than H20 is H20 and Exercise
Drink. The. Water. Enough said.
So those are my short little tips. Now a little workout thing that I found on the internet is the 4×4 workout. For those who haven’t heard of it, its just a workout comprised of 4×4 things that will workout everything you want.
THE 4X4 WORKOUT
– front kicks
– jumping jacks
– 10 pushups/10 dips
– Alternating lunges
– squat press
– back row
– flying lunges
– side shuffle
– mountain clumbers
– squat pulses/squat jumps
– bicycle crunches
– v-sit hold
– reverse crunches
Beginners: 30 seconds per exercise, once through
Intermediate: 45 seconds per exercise, twice through
Advances: 60 seconds per exercise, three times through
(Remember to take breaks as you need them and DRINK WATER)
Now I like to do this on nights where I don’t have an exercise class or sport already so keep that in mind.
I hope this post helped.
