Easy home workouts

tumblr_msqh5iw2eS1rszqwmo1_500

Do you have a busy life and not much time for going to the gym every time? No worries, here you see a few “home workouts” that you can do easily in your room. When I come back from work I am tired and I don’t have much energy for hours of training, so I wake up a half an hour before I use to do (normally at 6:00 and now 5:30) for a few morning workouts. In the beginning it is hard, because your bed is so warm and your tired, but after a while you get used to it and it give you so much more energy during the day. It also motivates you to train more and more when you see results that you worked very hard for.

TIP: Feel your stomach the next time you do cardio. If it is cold, that means you’ve worked hard enough for your body to start burning fat. It is a great way to motivate yourself.

I wake up the same time everyday, even if I have a rest day. You get a daily routine and you body get use to waking up early. Before I do the workouts, I drink a big glass of (half warm) water with lemon. ‘*Start the day with half warm water is good for your belly and your digestion.’ When I do the workouts I also drink one glass of normal water, because you slept all night and didn’t drink. It is good to purify your body with water. It is also very important to do workouts that you like to do, if you don’t like them then it is hard to keep going and the probability is high that you stop. If you get stronger and the workouts going easier, you can add more workouts that you didn’t like before to your list.

HOW TO DO;

* Write down all the workouts that you like to do, as many as you like. Choose from your own list 5 workouts.

For example:
*20 jumping jacks
*20 squats
*20 plank
*20 crunches
*20 high knees

And repeat them 3 times. You can have a short break, or drink a bit water if you need. It is also very important to breathe properly.
If you just started or this is to hard you can also choose to do set from 15 or 10. It is easier to do the sets 3 times instead of doing 60 at a time, because now you have rest and you train other parts of your body in between.

More idea’s that I use.

SHOCKING:

Now I understand “the grown-ups” mostly the mothers who complain about their weight and be to busy for taking care of their body. Doesn’t make time for workouts and only eat the quick meals.

A while ago I didn’t understand that, how can you not have time? “MAKE TIME, you want to lose weight? Go to the gym, even if it is for a half an hour, isn’t so hard is it? Lying on the couch or have a workout that makes you feel better when your done.” But now when I experience the “adult life” I completely understand!!

I am so tired after a whole day at work, I try to go to the gym and workout but it is not like I did before. After 3 months now, I gain 5 kg!! OH MY GODNESS!! I know ey, it is shocking! But what did I expect? Trained not so much as I did before (even skipped sometimes) and all day I sit on a computer and eat. Not candy, cookies and chocolate but without my daily movement and without training you obviously see much difference. So to now I had to search for another way… something had to change.

tumblr_n2bby7jj8A1sdcjhxo1_500tumblr_n36ehpVT9z1rqlia6o1_500I tried different things;
– Instead of going home with the car, I went back on my skates (15 km). I do this once a week. It is hard, specially if your not used to skate. So I recommend to train a bit before you skate 15 km in a day.
– At work I only eat fruit and vegetables (no other “healthy”cookies or snacks just the fruit and vegetables), I try to make good meals with it so I am not getting hungry and small pieces for a snack.
– I found out that I eat more when I sit all day, think everybody does that. Anyway, I try to change the food for water and tea. Luckily I love tea, so it isn’t hard for me to drink it, and everytime when i get a ‘hungry in cookie’ feeling I drink a glass or water or tea.
– It sound silly but when I am alone in the office or when I go to the toilet I do a few squats. I don’t know if this will help a lot but it give me more motivation because I have the feeling that I do a good job! HAHA! I do 10 till 20 squats because I don’t want to sweat and that like 5 times a day?
– No extra salt, I use to put salt on everything, I knew it wasn’t good but I couldn’t eat it without. But I was so shocked from the 5kg that i thought: Ok I drink a lot now and I can eat salty food cause I only enjoy it the 5 minutes that I eat it. So those 5 minutes non-salty eating isn’t the worst thing. I just need to learn to eat without salt.

I already lost 2kg while I was changing these little things at my ”working new lifestyle”. So for me it works, if you have more tips you can always sent me a email or message on tumblr! I would love to hear! Processed with VSCOcam with c1 preset

Love,

Just go with the flow…

I found this a while ago on tumblr and I had to share it with you guys. It made me realize how important it is to appreciate the little things in live… How important it is to be honest and that you are the only one who can make your life wonderful and pure. Save the beautiful memories instead of thinking the bad ones over and over again. Stop worrying about stupid fights, being bitchie about someone else and be angry about things your forget about in two weeks … Fill your time with the good things in your life and love the people around you.

21 Habits of Happy People

1. Appreciate Life – Be thankful that you woke up alive each morning. Develop a childlike sense of wonder towards life. Focus on the beauty of every living thing. Make the most of each day. Don’t take anything for granted. Don’t sweat the small stuff.

2. Choose Friends Wisely – Surround yourself with happy, positive people who share your values and goals. Friends that have the same ethics as you will encourage you to achieve your dreams. They help you to feel good about yourself. They are there to lend a helping hand when needed.

3. Be Considerate – Accept others for who they are as well as where they are in life. Respect them for who they are. Touch them with a kind and generous spirit. Help when you are able, without trying to change the other person. Try to brighten the day of everyone you come into contact with.

4. Learn Continuously – Keep up to date with the latest news regarding your career and hobbies. Try new and daring things that has sparked your interest – such as dancing, skiing, surfing or sky-diving.

5. Creative Problem Solving – Don’t wallow in self-pity. As soon as you face a challenge get busy finding a solution. Don’t let the set backs affect your mood, instead see each new obstacle you face as an opportunity to make a positive change. Learn to trust your gut instincts – it’s almost always right.

6. Do What They Love – Some statistics show that 80% of people dislike their jobs! No wonder there’s so many unhappy people running around. We spend a great deal of our life working. Choose a career that you enjoy – the extra money of a job you detest isn’t worth it. Make time to enjoy your hobbies and pursue special interests.

7. Enjoy Life – Take the time to see the beauty around you. There’s more to life than work. Take time to smell the roses, watch a sunset or sunrise with a loved one, take a walk along the seashore, hike in the woods etc. Learn to live in the present moment and cherish it. Don’t live in the past or the future.

8. Laugh – Don’t take yourself – or life to seriously. You can find humor in just about any situation. Laugh at yourself – no one’s perfect. When appropriate laugh and make light of the circumstances. (Naturally there are times that you should be serious as it would be improper to laugh.)

9. Forgive – Holding a grudge will hurt no one but you. Forgive others for your own peace of mind. When you make a mistake – own up to it – learn from it – and FORGIVE yourself.

“Happiness is a habit – cultivate it.” ~ Elbert Hubbard

10. Gratitude – Develop an attitude of gratitude. Count your blessings; All of them – even the things that seem trivial. Be grateful for your home, your work and most importantly your family and friends. Take the time to tell them that you are happy they are in your life.

11. Invest in Relationships – Always make sure your loved ones know you love them even in times of conflict. Nurture and grow your relationships with your family and friends by making the time to spend with them. Don’t break your promises to them. Be supportive.

12. Keep Their Word – Honesty is the best policy. Every action and decision you make should be based on honesty. Be honest with yourself and with your loved ones.

13. Meditate – MEDITATION gives your very active brain a rest. When it’s rested you will have more energy and function at a higher level. Types of meditation include yoga, hypnosis, relaxation tapes, affirmations, visualization or just sitting in complete silence. Find something you enjoy and make the time to practice daily.

14. Mind Their Own Business – Concentrate on creating your life the way you want it. Take care of you and your family. Don’t get overly concerned with what other people are doing or saying. Don’t get caught up with gossip or name calling. Don’t judge. Everyone has a right to live their own life the way they want to – including you.

15. Optimism – See the glass as half full. Find the positive side of any given situation. It’s there – even though it may be hard to find. Know that everything happens for a reason, even though you may never know what the reason is. Steer clear of negative thoughts. If a negative thought creeps in – replace it with a positive thought.

16. Love Unconditionally – Accept others for who they are. You don’t put limitations on your love. Even though you may not always like the actions of your loved ones – you continue to love them.

17. Persistence – Never give up. Face each new challenge with the attitude that it will bring you one step closer to your goal. You will never fail, as long as you never give up. Focus on what you want, learn the required skills, make a plan to succeed and take action. We are always happiest while pursuing something of value to us.

tumblr_n02nvd3Bfd1r3nnfeo1_50018. Be Proactive – Accept what can not be changed. Happy people don’t waste energy on circumstances beyond their control. Accept your limitations as a human being. Determine how you can take control by creating the outcome you desire – rather than waiting to respond.

19. Self Care – Take care of your mind, body and health. Get regular medical check ups. Eat healthy and work out. Get plenty of rest. Drink lots of water. Exercise your mind by continually energizing it with interesting and exciting challenges.

20. Self Confidence – Don’t try to be someone that you’re not. After all no one likes a phony. Determine who you are in the inside – your own personal likes and dislikes. Be confident in who you are. Do the best you can and don’t second guess yourself.

21. Take Responsibility – Happy people know and understand that they are 100% responsible for their life. They take responsibility for their moods, attitude, thoughts, feelings, actions and words. They are the first to admit when they’ve made a mistake.

Begin today by taking responsibility for your happiness. Work on developing these habits as you own. The more you incorporate the above habits into your daily lifestyle – the happier you will be.

Most of all: BE TRUE TO YOURSELF.
