I got this message from a friend on facebook… There are many women who feel the same:
I’ve had two kids one is just 3 mos and I’m just so unhappy with my stomach and my hips and I just want to tone up a bit, I’m very limited on time and can’t afford a gym membership at all. I haaaate walking outside so much but we own a very nice treadmill. So I was wondering if you had any suggestions of what I could start with to work on my stomach and hips?
- START DOING SOMETHING.
Something is always better than nothing. You have a treadmill, or piece of exercise equipment, USE IT! Put it on a high incline and walk hard for five minutes. Squats are great for working hips and thighs. Do ten squats any time you get a free minute. You can even do squats while holding your little one.
A lot of people think they can’t work out because they don’t have an hour to spare. Don’t buy into that lie. Even if you’re doing five or ten minutes several times throughout the day, chances are that is more than you’re doing now. Just start!
Well, gotta run and pay my visit to the gym! What about you?
