Keeping fit is something I try and include in my daily lifestyle routine, but we all know it is so easy to get off track sometimes . I am pretty sure we all would love to have that toned body we see all over instagram which motivates us for about ten minutes and we go and end up eating chocolate those ten minutes later haha trust me we have all been there! However recently I have been trying to be good not by restricting myself or completely cutting something out of my diet but just by making a few changes in my daily routine which have been helping me to tone up and although I am not there yet I can definitely see progress and want to keep it up.
I find fitness posts really helpful as you can see what others do and learn some new tips and tricks you can incorporate in to your own personal lifestyle. Today I’ll talk about my top five tips on how to tone up and have a slightly healthier lifestyle not just to loose weight but feel better too.Of course what works for me may not work for you but regardless here’s the steps I have been taking to get my oh so called ‘dream body’
One: I am a true believer that ‘Abs are made in the kitchen’ you can exercise for hours but if your diet is poor and high in fats and sugars you simply will not see any results. What works for me is still having everything I like to eat just limiting the junk to as little as possible.
Two: Exercise is very important I like to do a mixture of cardio and strength training , personally I see results much quicker when I do more strength training , cardio alone will not tone you up at least thats the case with me. I enjoy taking classes at the gym I go to I mostly do body pump body attack , zumba and aerobics , but I also train at the gym on top of doing those classes I like to switch it up.
Three: Green Tea and Water are really going to help you beat that bloated belly and keep everything flowing haha! I try to drink at least 2 litres of water and 2/3 cups of green tea a day , they are also great for your skin .
Four: Take it step by step, noting happens overnight and you have to be patient theres no need to starve or over exercise ladies this will only lead to failure as you will not be able to stick this kind of a lifestyle for long.
Five: Buy yourself some cute gym wear! This really helps at actually making you want to go to the gym! I recently invested in a few gym tops and leggins and I can assure you its like having new clothes you simply want to wear it and get out in it. It works!
Lastly I wanted to touch up on the supplements I have been taking, now I am not saying this is something you need or should invest in but I have been taking them and do believe they have been helping me to achieve my goals. The first one is protein powder , the one I am using at the moment is the Protein Works Diet Whey which tastes really good and is super affordable. In terms of multivitamins I take a multivitamin as well as Omega 3 fish oil every night. Recently I also incorporated this Fat Killer which you take in the morning and prior to your work out now I know this is not something that everyone approves of and I haven’t been using it long enough to tell you if it’s working or not but I will do an updated review once I have used it all up.
I hope you have found this helpful and if you have any questions or tips do leave them in the comments below. xo
