Unfortunately, now that off season has finally begun, some of us may be finding it quite hard to get in some daily exercise. I know that I for one, am one of these people.

I love junk food, I have to admit. I eat it like it’s going out of style and then feel completely guilty about it, because I know it’s going straight to my bottom! So I figured I should come up with some ideas for a weekly workout that is simple and easy to follow. I also included some healthy diet suggestions with these exercises as well!

Day 1 will begin on Monday and you want to start today off with a big but healthy breakfast. The workout for today will include:
-A thirty minute evening walk
-50 crunches
-50 squats
-50 jumping jacks.
Personally, I find the best time to do these exercises is before I jump into the shower at night!

Tuesday, day 2 is a simple and fun day that will consist of a soup and salad dinner along with the following exercises:
-30 minute morning walk
-30 minutes of wild dancing
-25 squats
-25 sit ups

For Wednesday, Day 3 you may give yourself a small treat! The exercises for this day includes:
-30 minutes of deep breathing
-30 minutes of cardio, your choice (this could be a walk, run, hitting the treadmill, wild dancing etc.) personally I enjoy looking up Zumba videos on YouTube!
-25 left leg lunges
-25 right leg lunges
-30 pelvic lifts

Thursday morning, day 4 enjoy a healthy hot breakfast and prepare yourself to do this following workout:
-30 minute morning walk
-10 minutes up and down stairs
-25 left leg raises
-25 right leg raises

Friday day 5 make yourself a wholesome salad dinner then go on a 30 minute evening walk. As soon as you return continue with these following exercises:
-40 squats
-40 sit-ups
-10 push ups
Finish out the day with 30 minutes of you time, this is important because mental health is just as important as physical health!!

Saturday day 6 is your day off! Wahoo make sure you get at least 8 hours of sleep!

Finally, Sunday day 7 the last day of the week take a one hour afternoon walk, maybe to your local grocery store to buy yourself some fresh food for the week and end your day with the following exercises:
-30 minutes of cardio your choice
-25 left leg lunges
-25 right leg lunges
-50 sit ups
-20 minutes of stretching

I myself, will be starting this workout during this upcoming week to see how I like it and whether or not I will want to continue doing it on a weekly basis. Also remember to drink and eat healthy foods throughout the day!

They say it takes 4 weeks to notice a change within yourself and 6 weeks for your friends to notice. So don’t give up and stay motivated to reach your goal!! Hard work pays off, never give up!

Good luck,
Kristen
