Stay in Shape like a Celebrity Mom!
- 8 Months ago
There is no miracle diet that celebrities follow to get in shape post delivery. There is a lot of hard work and determination that goes into getting back that perfect body! Get your doctor's approval and get going with these tips and flaunt your body soon.
Stick to a Healthy Diet: Healthy regime doesn't include only salads for lunch or only a soup for dinner. A well balanced diet is all it takes. Keep a track on your sugar and snack intake. Include small portions of proteins like egg whites, tuna, skinned out chicken, smoked salmon, nuts, skimmed milk and milk products. Substitute baked potatoes for French fries and drool over a fresh apple instead of preserved apple juice! Choose grilled chicken over French fries and also, increase your water intake.
Small Meals at Set Intervals: Starving is not the thumb rule to lose weight, so keep your body replenished with small servings of food in the form of fruits, vegetables, and healthy/ baked snacks. Eating 5 times a day keeps your hunger at bay.
Set Your Exercise Regime: Start out slowly. Generally try to be more active with a little modification in your daily routine. Gradually participate in physical activities five days a week.
Go-Getter Attitude: Nothing can stop you from reaching your goal. Stay committed and focused on getting into shape. Make an inspiration board of the people that inspire you. This can add a boost to your effort when you feel low and burnt out.
Set a Firm Goal & Reward Yourself: Reward yourself with a fitness gadget like a new pair of running shoes, an HRM watch, a relaxing spa treatment or a body massage or plan a trek with your friends or you could buy yourself some exciting gym clothes! It could be just about anything that can keep you going!
Your Pregnancy Journal: Keeping a pregnancy journal can help you relax during the day. Many women find it fun and helpful. You don't have to be a writer to keep a journal. Buy a colorful notebook and write down what you are thinking or feeling. It would be great to read them later.
Keep Stress at Bay: Stress goes a long way to affect your weight loss. Make the most of all the help you can get. You can't do everything yourself, so there's no point in trying. Spend half an hour each evening doing something you enjoy and relax.
Prioritize your health & make it your focus. Aging/ child birth are not reasons to just let go of yourself.
