Ladies, many of us are constantly looking for ways to shed those last 3-5 pounds. Time is a factor, so we come up with creative ways to incorporate exercise in our daily lives. We sometimes do not realize that the smallest change can have a huge impact. The following are some tips to help lose last few pounds:
1. Add a daily walk to your everyday routine. It could be in the morning before work, during your lunch hour, or after your evening meal. Every step counts!
2. Make your coffee “diet”. For coffee drinkers, cut out cream and sugar or at least minimizing the amount used can make a difference. Weigh out your options, like skim milk, 1% milk, soy milk, and no-calorie sweeteners. These can help you reduce your calorie intake.
3. Jump into a weight lost contest! At Lucille Roberts, we are constantly having weight loss contests. Weight loss contests can be a motivational factor in losing weight and staying focused in your weight loss goals. Of course, winning a prize at the end is always a plus!
4. Take Fido for a walk. Dog lovers, here is a great tip for you. Since our four-legged friends need to be taken out, why not add a very long walk or even a jog to this routine? You are not only spending quality time with your doggie but also getting a workout also.
Trying one or more of these tips should be helpful in meeting your weight loss goals. Remember always to remain open to trying new things, since our bodies need to be challenged on a constant basis. After trying these tips, write back to us about your success. We love hearing from you!
