Trying to lose weight is heart breaking. Even though there are opportunities and information everywhere, you just seem stuck and can’t really get over yourself to exercise or eat healthy. And that even though you go so motivated to bed every night, because tomorrow’s gonna be a brand new day and a brand new you.
We all know what happens tomorrow. Same thing.
I know that feeling very well. My mom knows it, my sister knows it, my (girl) friends know it, every woman I know knows it. It’s like an epidemic.
How to actually start working out
Over the years I found out that the only thing that keeps me from not just rolling into a ball and staying inactive at home all the time is actually taking action.
Actually doing what I’m supposed to do before I’m ready.
Before I have all the information, all the equipment and all the confidence to do it.
I make myself do it.
You might not be ready for this workout plan. It might not be a Monday to start new, when you read this.
You might not have all the equipment.
And you won’t know how many calories you’ll burn with these workouts.
You won’t even know whether this workout plan works.
Until you try.
Because what I know is that you’ll burn more calories when you do these workouts than if you just sit on your phone researching.
That whole equipment? You need almost nada here.
All you need is 30 minutes in the morning and the willingness to try something you’ve never done before. At least for 10 minutes every morning.
Because the benefits are enormous.
Benefits of regular exercise
- prevents major diseases like cancer and heart disease
- builds muscle strength and is good for your bone health
- improves your mood
- makes you more productive
- improves your memory
- helps you look good
The workout Plan
This workout plan is low impact and suitable for beginners.
For women, who might have worked out before, but stopped and need to build strength again.
Or women who like to walk and be active, but have never exercised. If you’re a COMPLETE Beginner, make sure to try this free workout plan first.
The great thing about this plan is that you can do these workouts at home, whenever you have time.
You don’t need a gym membership, you don’t really need fancy clothes, you don’t need to do them at a certain time or to even wash your hair.
Ok, wash it if you want.
Basically you’re free to do whatever you want with this workout plan.
You’ll do 20-30 minutes of exercise every morning or whenever you have time. And you’ll try Pilates, Barre, Yoga and cardio and even have one active rest day. Feel free to do the yoga routine again on that day if you want.
A few more things
- If a workout is too intense for you – modify and go at your own pace.
- Make sure you drink enough water and stay hydrated
- Have fun!
- a good, thick exercise mat
- comfortable sport shoes
- a chair (sturdy furniture)
- water bottle, I like this stainless steel insulated water bottle
- exercise clothes
Please consult with your doctor, before starting this or any other exercise regimen!
One Week Beginner Workout Plan For Women To Lose Weight
Starting strong with this 20 Minute Pilates for a Leaner, Longer, Stronger Body by Dreamingreen that I absolutely love. It’s fun and challenging at the same time. You’re training your whole body with this one – abs, arms, neck, legs, butt – everything.
On day two we’re doing this 15-Minute Beginner’s Cardio Workout by POPSUGAR Fitness twice. That’s right two times to make 30 minutes. This is a low-impact workout, which means you won’t be jumping around too much. But it doesn’t mean you won’t be sweating either.
We’ll start day three with an energizing yoga workout by YOGATX. I love all of their videos (especially for neck and shoulders) and this is a great workout to start your day with. You also get to recharge and stretch your muscles for a day.
On day 5 we’re gonna sweat with this HIIT Workout for Beginners by jessicasmithtv. I am not a big fan of HIIT, but I’ve recently started doing it again. HIIT has many benefits for your cardiovascular health and helps you burn fat!
We trained the abs and we burned some fat, now it’s time to tone the legs and the butt with this awesome barre workout by FitnessBlender. You’ll need a chair that you can hold on too, but this workout is just great. I only recently discovered barre and I love it! To me it feels like a standing Pilates.
Now it’s time to relax and have some fun outside. Go to the park or on a hike, enjoy your rest day!
