I am 26 years old with a 10 month old daughter. I have been trying to loose weight for the past few months and well the weight still isnt coming off even though I see inches coming off. My weekly routine is to run for 30 minutes on the treadmill in the evenings Monday-Thursday, during my breaks at work I walk for 15 minutes and always take the stairs, Friday-Sunday I walk my dog for 20 minutes. I do not eat a whole lot of junk food and have cut out soda and only aloud myself 1 cup of coffee in the morning. I do not have a whole lot of time between cleaning, preparing meals and working 40 hours a week. I am 5'4 165lbs. Any tips or suggestions?

Hi ,
i have more of advice for you ..

1- When you are exercising your body will use calories (energy) to fuel the exercise, no matter what exercise it is. The type of fuel, whether it is fat, sugar or other will depend on the type of exercise, the intensity, the meal consumed before and when and a number of other reasons.


You will need a rope to perform the exercise. You can buy ‘special’ skipping ropes

How? To perform the skipping, try to keep your back straight and avoid leaning forward. Keep the elbows tacked in your body and the turning of the rope should come from the wrists. If you have to rotate your elbows to turn the rope then the rope may be too small. If you are a beginner in skipping, best jump two footed as it is easier to do. You can build different variations as you become more confident, such as alternate legs or cross arms etc.

How much? Perform for 3 min at the start of your workout to get your muscles and cardiopulmonary systems going, and then for another 5 min at the end. Skipping is more of an aerobic exercise and for maximising the fat you burn it is better if you perform resistance exercises 1st and aerobic exercise at the end. The 3 and 5 min may not seem as much but trust me if you never skipped before (being a child was the last time) you will find that is not as easy. If you are more fit then by all means add min on. Go at you own paste and fitness level.


Push up or press ups as they may also be called, target the muscles on the chest, shoulders, arms, and back. There are a number of variations in performance and when performed on the floor with straight legs then they also work leg tummy and buttocks as stabilisers.

How? 1. Lay prone on the floor with palms flat on the floor placed slightly wider under your shoulders. Keep arms extended but do not lock the elbows.
2. Extended legs and toes tacked in to the floor (raise on to your toes), keep your back straight.
3. Contract your abdominal muscles and buttocks. Keep breathing don’t hold your breath.
4. Inhale, bend your elbows and lower your body to the floor.
5. Exhale, extend your arms and push your body back up to starting position. Repeat movement.
Easier variations include push ups against the wall (if you are really unfit) or the keeping the legs bend (on fours). Harder variations include one arm push ups or the legs placed on a bench or Swiss ball. Aim for what suits your own fitness level.
How much? Well it is quite a hard exercise. Aim for 4 to start off, rest for 30sec and perform another 4. If that is too hard then just do 4 and try to build on it or go for one of the easier variations and build on it. If you are fit and can do a couple of sets or more push up by all means judge it and go for it.

Yeah cardio and abs exercises are most useful for the weight loss and fitness purposes. You can lose your weight successfully if you do the outdoor cardio exercises on regular basis for only 30 minutes a day.

I recommend you go swimming, this is a good option for weight loss. You can alternatively consider kalinka-store.com detox slimming products, my husband for a year with her help lost 40 pounds, considering that his weight was 155 pounds. Nutritionist advised him to use a fish diet, but he refused because it is very difficult

You have to make sure that your calorie intake is lower then what you burn...

Juicing for health adds in a bit of variety to your diet while helping you acquire essential nutrients from fruits and vegetables and help you lose weight naturally. You can create your own juice at home by means of a juicer, giving a juice bar a try, or opt for freshly squeezed juices from the market.

For me the best results come with a lot of long walks and making exercises at home. There is no need to be on a special diet

For me, I pumped like a mad woman and my tummy went almost flat. I then started a paleo diet and began intermittent fasting. I lost all my baby weight THEN I began the strength body weight exercises.

10-minute spurts of lunges, push-ups, and squats. Otherwise, I am walking at home with my 1 and 2-year-old and at work.

Biggest thing for me was will power Hang in there and try what works best for you!
