Full Body Workout + Weight Loss Tips

       I admit it, lately I’ve fallen out of my healthy living routine.  I used to workout 4-5 times a week, eat clean (with little to no sweets), and got plenty of beauty sleep.  The first step I always take to getting back on track is, without a doubt, eating healthier.  That means adding more fruits and vegetables to your diet.  It also means drinking lots of water.  Seriously bring a big water bottle with you everywhere you go.  You’ll have to pee every hour but your body will thank you later.  Just think, whatever you put into your body is what fuels you throughout the day and during your workouts.  I wish I could eat pancakes and lasagna every day without gaining weight but unfortunately, the calories would start to show.  As far as alcohol consumption goes, rosé is my drink of choice and I will never give it up.  Honestly, weight loss comes down to a balanced diet and portion sizes.  Follow these easy weight loss tips and see for yourself.

Tip 1: Eat slowly and chew your food. It’s so simple yet nobody realizes how fast they inhale their food.  It sounds gross but actually chewing all the food in your mouth before swallowing has many benefits.  Most important, chewing leaves food small enough for the gastric juices in the stomach to further degrade it and thus helps speed up your digestive system.  

Tip 2: Don’t eat in front of the tv.  Mindful eating can help reduce the total amount you eat at any meal. For example, when you eat in front of the television, your attention is diverted from the food. That can result in “unconscious” overeating. Understanding what influences you to eat can help you identify what triggers overeating. 

Tip 3: Switch out your oversized plates and bowls with smaller ones.  By using smaller plates, you will eat smaller portions.  You will trick your mind into thinking you ate more food because you still fill the entire plate with food.  Soon your stomach will start to shrink down and you will become full much faster.

Now lets jump right into this full body workout!

Warm Up Run

Start by warming up your body with a 10-15 minute run.  I’m not the biggest fan of running but it really does wonders to your body.  Just keep telling yourself how good you’re going to look in that bikini.

 Jump Rope

After your run, go straight into jumping rope while keeping a fast pace.  3 sets, 60 seconds

In & Outs

My favorite workout that targets your lower abs.  Keep those legs straight and low to the floor!  3 sets, 60 seconds.

Donkey & Pony Kicks

Who doesn’t love a firm booty?!  You can do this workout on the floor or use a bosu ball for added difficulty.  3 sets, 30 seconds each leg.

    

Triceps Pushdown

This workout is great for toning your arms.  4 sets, 10-12 reps.

  

Lat Pulldown

This workout will help strengthen your back and shoulders.  4 sets, 10-12 reps.

Stretch It Out

Don’t forget about stretching!
