If your biggest challenge so far is lifting yourself off your bed, you’re not alone. Most of us have programmed our minds to come up with a series of excuses to skip a workout or a healthy meal. To help even the laziest women out there, we’ve come up with a list of expert-approved tips and tricks that anyone can follow in their everyday lives.
1. WORKOUT LESS – BUT EAT RIGHT
It’s simpler than it sounds. Instead of spending hours on the treadmill, you can try cutting down your empty calories, such as those from sodas, candy and junk food and drop your pounds dramatically. Opt for healthy, clean foods such as lean protein, healthy fats, whole grains and fruits and veggies as they are packed with nutrients and come with very little calories. In addition, they’re also packed with protein and fiber that will help fill you up and prevent you from overeating.
As for your gym session, cut it down to 30 minutes and if you want to take your health and weight loss to the next level, we recommend HIIT.
2. MAXIMIZE YOUR WORKOUTS
Performing short bursts of intense exercises is a great way of getting a 50 minute workout in 10 minutes. Push yourself above and beyond your limits and chances are you’ll be able to go back home to your bed within a fraction of your regular gym time.
3. FREEZE YOUR PRODUCE
Going to the supermarket and recalling what you need, only to find them rotting at the back of your fridge later is a huge chore. A solution for this is to purchase a week’s worth of produce on a Sunday and freeze them in portions. This will prevent your fruits and veggies from going bad and will preserve their freshness and nutrients. They also become easily accessible for smoothies, stir fries and soups.
4. DRINK MORE WATER
This is an old grandma’s tale but we can’t stress enough on how important this is. Not only because water keeps you hydrated and sustains all of your bodily mechanisms, but it also keeps you full, boosts your metabolism and increases fat burn. Hydration is key to boosting workout performance, keeping your mood light and lifted and your skin supple and glowing.
5. SLEEP WELL
Not getting around 7 hours of shut eye produces higher levels of cortisol – a stress hormone that stunts your energy levels, productivity and fat breakdown. To combat sleep deprivation, be sure to shut down all electronics an hour before you sleep and practice a healthy sleep routine.
6. TAKE YOUR MULTIVITAMINS
Taking your multivitamins every day is crucial to maintain a healthy nutrient intake every day. Multivitamins make sure that you are able to take in all the nutrients you may have missed or have not taken enough of. This prevents any nutrient-deficiency related issues, including sleep problems, mood swings and weight gain.
