Would you love to get fit and lose weight without doing all that dieting? Well, it is possible. You just need to focus on the exercise. There are so many things that you can try to start dropping the dress sizes and get your beach body in time for the summer. Here are six things to give a go right now.
The Squat Challenge
The squat challenge varies depending on who you talk to. Some people tell you to increase the amount of squats you do each day, while others expect you to do 50 in a day every day for 30 days.
Whichever you do, it’s going to tone your thighs and butt, and that’s just the first way of getting the beach body of your dreams.
The Couch to 5K Challenge
Another challenge out there is the couch to 5K plan.
It’s supposed to get you ready for a 5K within two months, but it all depends on your initial physical levels and your commitment to the plan. Even stretching it out over four months will help you get fit and lose some weight. You can do most of it without even needing the gym.
Take Up Something You Enjoy Doing
Pick a physical activity that you love to do. It could be running, swimming, rowing or even dancing.
When you do something you enjoy, you’re more likely to stick with it. On top of that, you’re more likely to put more effort in. The more effort you put in, the more weight you’re going to lose. You’ll also feel happier in yourself.
Dance Around the House Every Morning
Put your tracks on loud and dance around the house before you have your breakfast.
You could even do it while you’re making breakfast or getting the kids ready for school. This boost of activity to start your day will really help give you a boost of energy that your body will thank you for later. You’ll also give your metabolism a boost so you burn more calories throughout the day, leading to you losing weight.
Ask a Friend to Join In
Company is great when it comes to getting fit. You have someone to support you along the way, and someone to help ease the boredom or make the time feel like it is flying.
You’re more likely to stick to your workout program too, which easily helps you lose weight. If you can’t find someone to join in, join fitness groups or listen to music to pass the time.
Make a Plan and Stick to It
Find the time in your day for your exercises. It doesn’t have to all be in one go. You could do a 10 minute jog on your lunch break and then 15 minutes of weight training after work.
Plan your time and look where you can fit your exercise in. Whatever you do, make sure you stick to the plan afterwards. It will be easy to stick to it if you make it realistic.
