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.

FREE PEOPLE; Movement

We all want to look good, especially when we are training! (yeah!) It is even extra motivation. It always makes me excited to go out for a run or doing yoga in the woods if I have new gear. That’s why I reward myself after I have reached a new goal, it really helps girls!

But I still have to wait a few weeks until I may wear my next treats, after I run the 12 km dirtkings and 10 km ladiesrun. But that doesn’t mean I can not buy them already!! haha! This amazing webshop has expanded their huge assortment with movement clothes! Yes, yes, yes!! If you want something special to wear, you should definitely buy it here. It is full of prints, colours, and original items.

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

Hi lovely’s,

It is been a while now since the last time that I post something, I am sorry for that but I am terrably busy. Yesterday I came home around 1:30 in the night and my alarm went off at 6 in the morning for a full day at work. Although I love being busy like this, I still wish that the day had more hours. All the fun and excited things are coming my way now. This year started rough for me, but now I can tell, and see that it was all for the best. I feel much more alive now, FREE, I grow, learn, explore and follow my own path. I found out that there is no limit, until you give yourself a limit. I am very thankful for everything that happened, even if I wasn’t that happy about it at the time. I truly believe that it goes better and better! Thank you Universe!

Andddd a little newsflash! I signed up for the Ladies run in Rotterdam, 10km! I decided to join it this year because I like to run for a reason, especially for Pink Ribbon. And to be honest I needed some extra motivation. Since Christmas my workout routine is bad… I need to make time for things that I want to do.. In the morning I always make plans like: “Today I am going to run, kickboxing and relax in the evening” And guess how that works out lately?! No kickboxing, 2 km walk and late in the evening I take some time to relax, can’t sleep because I worry that I have to wake up in 4 hours! Sounds familiar?!

L

I need to find a way that I can do the things I really want to do. So I am going to make a good plan for myself and promise that I do everything that I really really want to do in a day, so that I can be proud at myself when I lay in bed. Like training for the ladies run, writing on romyashley.com, making my favorite bracelets, watch the latest episodes from The Blacklist, Revenge and Pretty Little Liars and make more time to rest and relax.

I hope you all have a amazing day, and remember… No Limits!

 

Love,
