If you get hunger pangs during the day and cannot resist from eating, then try to eat healthy snacks. Do not consume all those extra calorie products that are harmful in the long run
- Create an effective exercise pattern
Working women should maintain a proper diet along with the workouts to say healthy and active. Try to include lots of fresh fruits in your breakfast, as fresh fruits that contain glucose will help to keep sweet cravings at bay. With fresh fruits you can also include some dry fruits in your breakfast for energy.
- Turn on that treadmill
Just do a 10 minutes treadmill session along with holding a 3-5 pound dumbbell in each hand. Set the speed to brisk walk. Do one-minute set each of biceps curls, triceps extensions, side laterals, and standing triceps one after another as you walk. This exercise will tone your upper body as well as pump your heart smoothly.
- Drink lots of water
Enough water is very essential for the proper functioning of your body. Keep drinking water at regular intervals, so that you don’t de-hydrate yourself.
- Chart your progress
To stay focused and motivated, make a fitness report card for your own reference. Jot down the subjects as various workouts you will be trying out, and grade yourself as you progress. This will help you to be motivated and will help you to notice various improvements.
- Reduce refined carbs intake
Limit your refined carb rich foods like cookies, chocolates, honey and white rice. When you eat a refined carb rich food, it will spike your blood sugar level and further will produce more insulin which will increase the fat in your body.
- Never overdo anything
Women do not need more than an hour of health and fitness training. Hence, never over do any form of exercise because doing extra exercises or spending more time in the gym, will just make you tired and exhausted. Hence, focus on limited exercises within a certain time frame to make your training session fun and effective.
- Crunches technique
Most of the time, women tend to use their neck muscles more than their abs when they do crunches. This practice is completely a waste of time. Instead focus back to your abdominal muscles by pressing your tongue flush against the roof of your mouth before starting your crunches.
- Never focus on weight loss
If you just focus on reducing the numbers on your scale, then ultimately you will end up gaining pounds. Instead, you goal should be to maintain a healthy and fit life, by eating right food and practicing the right exercises.
