10 Tips to loose 10lbs - Part 8

Happy Easter Monday Everyone

Here we are; part 8 of our series 10 tips of loose 10lbs! How is everyone getting on!! We are just emerging from Easter Weekend of eating Chocolate Eggs! So I am absolutley sure you are going love todays 10 tips as much as we love sharing these handy tips!!!

Tip 1 - Keep Moving when you are sitting

During adverts in your favourite TV shows walk about. If you want to sit all evening with your eyes glued to the telly , then do so. But at least spare your eyes the agony of the adverts Get up and take a walk. Reach over and try to touch your toes or do any such simple exercise that will at least get the blood flowing in your veins. Try to avoid binge watching - pause them between episodes, get up and move!

Tip 2 - Get your circulation moving

Wriggle your toes and your fingers whenever you can. This too is a stress buster and it gives you a chance to at least work your hand and leg joints. This will tell you how sore they are and if their condition is so bad, just think of the rest of your body.

Tip 3 - Just face the music and dance

Turn on music and dance like wild. Let your hair down once in a while. Go back to the days of wild child hood. Close the door of your room, turn on your sound system to the highest volume possible (but a little lower than the level at which your neighbours start to complain) and then do the wackiest dance that you can think of. Jump on your bed and jump off it again. Roll all over the floor. I put on some 90s rave music the other day! and danced around like I was back in the club!

Tip 4 - Throw something

Carry a tennis ball with you! This is also an excellent way to beat stress. It makes a person feel good to throw something away forcefully when the person is all worked up. And the thing that you throw is something soft and can’t damage anything, then what is stopping you? It is not really the throwing part that we are interested in. It is the fetching part. Each time you get up to fetch it back; you are giving yourself a chance to stretch those muscles and joints

Tip 5 - A sneaky way to get walking

Get down from the tube or bus 1 or 2 stops earlier and WALK! . You might not have time to fit in long walks in your busy schedule so this is one way of ensuring that you at least get to power walk for a little bit every day.

If you drive to work, see if you can get space in a parking lot that is a little away from your office.

Tip 6 - Move your pelvis like Elvis!

When nobody is watching try doing pelvic gyrations. If you take a moment to observe it you will see that it is the mid section of our body that gets the least bit of exercise and that is probably why the signs of weight gain are mostly seen there.

It is the same reason why we find it very difficult to lose weight in that section. So the best thing that you can do is consciously try to give that part a little bit of exercise.

Stomach crunches might be too strenuous an exercise to start off with but gyrations are

relatively mild. Pelvic gyrations make you thrust your midsection towards all directions and this is the best way of tightening every muscle in that mid section and that is of course what weight loss is all about.

Tip 7 - Tuck in your tummy whenever you walk

Get that proper gait. And the best way for that is to tuck in your tummy and inflate your chest. Do not let your tummy hang above your belt line like some unruly layer of flesh. Bring it under the belt.

Each time you tuck in your tummy, you will feel the pressure on the muscles of your stomach. This tightening and loosening of these muscles is even better than stomach crunches.

Tip 8 - Breathe

Try breathing exercises. You might be surprised to know that breathing exercises too can lead to weight loss. If you are doing the breathing exercises properly, you will find that you can exert a lot of pressure on the muscles around the mid section. You can feel a tightening of these muscles each time you breathe in or breathe out. So go ahead and breathe properly, it is good for you.

Tip 9 - Pracitise Yoga

Try yoga. One of the benefits of yoga is that you learn to control virtually every muscle and joint of your body so that the issue of weight gain will cease to exist.

Tip 10 - Couples that train together, stay together

If couple take up weight loss routines together. They can keep watch over each other, help control those urges to eat and motivate each other to stick to the routine. There are a lot of things that couples can do together that can help them to keep physically active.
