You ve been exercising for quite some time now. There is no need to be shy in trying new exercises at the gym or taking up new challenges. Move out of your comfort zone because sticking to the same exercise plan for months will not help you lose more weight.
Morning To have a stress-free time when you return home, finish a few tasks before you leave. Clean your bedroom and make your bed the moment you wake up and place all the clothes in their right place. Coming back to a clean and neat bedroom will help you relax and sleep better at night.
Breakfast Instead of cutlets that are deep fried, make rajma kebabs that can be enjoyed with healthy green chutney or sandwiches between two slices of brown or multi-grain bread. It s a low-calorie recipe and extremely delicious.
Lunch Your protein intake must always be high. You can either add eggs or meat to your diet. But if you are a vegetarian and can t eat paneer regularly, add soya to your recipes. Make this protein and iron rich palak soya wadi sabzi and enjoy it with ragi or jowar bhakris.
Snacks Add green leafy vegetables to your diet as much as possible. They up your iron intake and also regulate bowel movements due to their high fibre content. This simple recipe of methi moong sprouts wrap is ideal during snack time. You can carry it along in your snack box without any hassle.
Dinner Dine like the nawabs tonight. Your family is in for a surprise with this nawabi curry that may sound too rich but is actually very healthy and easy to prepare. You can enjoy it with plain tawa paranthas and get a feel of dining in a Mughlai restaurant.
At home Don t make excuses to not exercise at home. The best part about home exercises is that you can manage them in small spaces and with little or no equipment. You can even perform these cardio exercises at home today to boost your metabolism.
Yoga If you have been doing strenuous workouts regularly, you can practice a few yoga poses to stretch and relax. These will prevent any kind of pain and get your muscles geared up for exercise the next day. Chakrasana is one such asana that will relax your back and spine completely.
At the gym Today is the third day you are working on your legs and lower body at the gym. Get out of your routine and try these 6 exercises that are meant to tone you from waist down. Take help from your trainer initially rather than assuming that these exercises are not your cup of tea.
