The 3 dos for a healthy body mindset
Eat quality healthy food

Eating quality healthy food is a very important tip for having a healthy body mindset. Like many things, you should always pick quality over quantity when it comes to food. Starving yourself to achieve the perfect body won’t end well.

Pamper yourself

Self-care is so important especially with all what we are experiencing all over the world. You should take out time everyday to pamper yourself. Falling in love with yourself and caring for yourself is the fastest way to achieve a healthy body mindset. Your body won’t look beautiful on the outside if you are not happy on the inside.

Exercise is good for you

Many of us know this tip but it really cannot be overemphasised. Exercise is really good for you. Apart from helping you achieve the right body and mindset, it is great for your mental health. A quick 30 minutes workout will keep you in a good mood for hours. You don’t have to hit the gym to exercise. Gyms are closed anyways so best to find other ways to workout if you are not fortunate to have a gym at home. There are lots of online workout sessions you could try, going for a long walk or a good old run still works wonders. Dancing is another way to exercise. That is my current workout method at the moment.

5 Benefits To Working Out To The Seal Grinder Workout Plan

A grinder can be best termed as the normal concrete surface. There is a grinder in the navy which is a concrete asphalt surface where the navy guys work out daily and shape their minds and bodies.

Not everyone has a full-fledged gym where they can work out. The seal grinder concept was developed from how the navy guys worked out on the grinder. There’s no specialized gym equipment, just an open space where you can do your pushups and other simple workouts.

How I Got my Pre Pregnancy Body Back

I have spoken a few times about my pregnancy weight and post pregnancy body. I didn’t add on too much weight whilst pregnant with my twins, but I wanted to get rid of the extra pounds. It was not difficult to lose the weight. It just fell off after some months but I needed to tone my body back to shape, especially my tummy. A question I always asked myself is “how many pushups should I be able to do?” I needed to get my body back into shape quick and I was not sure how to go about it.

The toning bit was hard and it took ages. I tried all sorts to get my tummy and body back to what it was pre pregnancy. It is not quite where it used to be but it is almost there. I feel I can (kind of) say I got my pre pregnancy body back. You never really get your body back after having a baby. It is one of those things that I don’t see ever really get back to normal. Not the inside or the outside. Bringing life to the world takes a lot out of us mothers, whether we see it or not. Forget the good jokes about how easy celebrities snap back into their pre baby body, with their abs and all weeks after delivery, that is not the reality for majority of us.

So how did I do it? Here are some changes I made in the pursuit of my pre pregnancy body.

 

I stayed active

I must confess, this was easily done with twins. I had no choice but to stay active. Being alone with the twins for majority of the day meant I had to be up and about, which left me feeling drained but helped to drop the extra pounds. Fitness workout videos on YouTube was my friend. All I had to do was pop a sports bra and some shorts and trainers, and I was ready to exercise from the comfort of my home.

Fitness kept me energised and sane. It also helped me stay fit and active which was good for my physical and mental wellbeing. I would have been lost without those fitness videos and I am thankful they exist. Going to the gym was not impossible for me, so this was the only way I could workout. And I could do almost every type of workout. From lifting straps to pushups to tone my tummy.

 

I walked

Prior to having my kids, I was not a huge fan of walking. That changed as soon as I had them. I found it easier to walk to many places. Pushing the pram on long walks also helped me get some fresh air and get some steps on my Fitbit. The twins loved it too so it was a win-win really. Going for walks wearing a pair of leggings with side pockets, meant I was able to listen to some of my favourite tunes too, with my iPhone tucked away safe.

 

I watched the calories

I have never needed to be on a. diet before, since I never put on weight easily. But I had to keep a watchful eye on my calories intake once I became a mother. I noticed I added weight a lot easier since pregnancy, so I had to cut down on the ice cream and the junk food. I found this easy to do because I knew I didn’t want to be overweight. Having the extra pounds on didn’t feel healthy at all. So it was a no brainer for me. The weight had to go, which meant there was no room for junk. It may sound vain, but I had a wardrobe filled with cute fancy outfits I needed to keep wearing.

I drank more water

I have never been a fan of drinking water. I know all about the benefits of drinking water but before my pregnancy, I rather drank Coke to be honest. However, once I got pregnant, all I wanted to do was drink water. I drank more water in my 9 months of pregnancy than I have ever done in my life, for as long as I can remember.

After having my kids, I decided to continue to drink as much water as I can and cut down on the fizzy drinks, and I have done exactly that. This has definitely helped me lose the extra pounds.
