my summerbody routine
Hey sweeties <3 Some time ago I told you I wanted to loose some fat for the upcoming summer (yes I know that there's snow outside but if I don't start now I'll just be lazy until it's too late) so todays post will be about what I do at the moment! I'll start with what I'm starting with xD So here are all my basic measurements and my weigth (Oh god I really hope I'll improve them >.<) Bust: 83 cm Waist: 72cm Belly(measured right across the bellybutton): 84cm Hips: 95cm Thigh(measured at the widest point): 58cm (I really hate my thighs D:) Heigth: 171.5cm Weight: 58kg So what do I do to loose weight and gain muscles at the same time? I cut down my intake considering carbs and calories in general. I do still eat a mars or snickers from time to time, but I rarely eat carbs at night and I'm eating like ten times more vegetables and fruit now. I try to cut down on red meat as well and tend to eat more fish. When I'm not working and I don't have to get up at 5am (I'm rarely having breakfast at 5 am I rather take a package of breakfast cookies with me and eat them at work) I either have a bowl of cereals or some bread with spreads or sausages. I also like to eat some fruit as a morning snack. For lunch I usually go with what my family eats for dinner xD I'm the one that is cooking the dinners most of the time so I prepare them (as far as this is possible) for lunch already and just warm them up in the evening. So for Lunch i have stuff like Schnitzel, potatoes and fresh vegetables or pasta with homemade sauces but also bowls of salad with cheese and light dressings. For dinner I just leave out the carbs (well most of the time :DD I'm really addictet to dumplings) SO I'd just eat the meat/fish and vegetables. As I'm usually staying up quite late I tend to have a small snack after dinner as well. Usually I go with fruits or a yoghurt. On to the workout! So my dad got a supeduper awesome ergometer a few weeks ago. I love it because it doesn't feature that typical extrabroad seat but has a racingseat and in general looks more like a racing bike than a classic ergometer. So as often as I can (I try to do it daily but sometimes I'm just too tired and exhausted to do anything) I sit on it and spin for about half an hour. The intensity depends on how tired I already am ;) Next thing I do is Situps. They have always been one of my favourite exercises. I do them with my legs up on the couch and I do between 80 and 140 reps a day. I also really like squats! I didn't do them for years but they really help to shape your thighs and buttocks so I started to do them regularly and I can definitely see an effect! I do about 60 reps a day. Next up is the eight count body builder! This is an exercise I found on a homepage about marine style workouts (click me!) In the beginning these were kinda hard but I think they are fun to do and you can easily feel the change in your body. I do between ten and twenty of these. If I'm not too exhausted after the eight count body builder I do some regular push ups too. And now some more random exercises I like to do: Side straddle hops (Jumping Jacks), flutterkicks and the mountainclimber. (You'll find descriptions of all these on the marine style fitness page! So that's what I'll do for at least the next two months to loose my bit of fat! If you want to join me feel free to contact me either on Facebook or just leave a comment here!
