|see me? I am the one with terrible posture|
one: cut the wine! When I stop drinking wine at night during the week, it forces me to drink water AND consume less calories.
two: don't walk in and rifle through your cabinets for a snack. Know what you want before you walk in, it helps stop the mindless handfuls of food you eat while deciding.
three: put snacks in your purse. I may have stopped at McDonalds for french fries and iced coffee more times than I care to share in the last month.
four: do lunges! (bonus points if you do them with light weights) they make your legs look better almost immediately...plus they are easy. also, squats with your heels pointed inward really work.
five: work towards a goal....whether it is a fitness event, a wedding, or a vacation. have something in mind,otherwise you will find Ellen to be the best choice in the afternoon.
six: smaller portions OR healthier meals. I make a rule that my breakfast (oatmeal-sticks to your ribs and makes it hard to be hungry!) and lunch (always with an apple!) have to be healthier but dinner can be whatever but no seconds unless I eat salad first. It is hard to have super healthy meals and fill up my husband every night.
seven: 8 minute abs OR this workout every other night (if you do ab work every night it is not as effective, it breaks down the muscle). I always do them while watching TV.
eight: find a workout buddy OR join gym that you can't avoid after work. I am joining the one that I have to pass to get into our neighborhood and I can walk to
nine: Download Nike Fit Club or do this workout for the days that you feel like you just can't work out. both can be done in front of the TV
lastly, start slow. don't overdo it the first week. you have your whole life to be healthy
anyone have workout tips? I will need them today!
