Trying to fit in regular exercise when you are mum can be pretty hard as you are seriously time challenged and exhausted most of the time.
At Lose Baby Weight we are all mums and we understand the time challenges and how hard it can be so we have created lots of exercise plans and ideas to follow which have been created by post pregnancy experts and are designed to fit into your life and we promise – no hour long gym sessions are required!
It is well known in personal training circles that spot fat removal isn’t possible – i.e. you can’t just focus on removing fat from your stomach area.
Weight loss is an all over body experience and when you lose weight it comes from everywhere and a weight loss exercises plan needs to be focused on the whole body.
When it comes to a weight loss exercise plan, it is important to work the whole body and get moving as much as you can to boost energy being used which fires up the metabolism and the body’s fat burning ability.
It is also important you eat healthy foods and our Healthy Mummy Smoothies and plans have been specifically formulated to nourish a mums body, aid weight loss and give you lots of energy.
Lose Baby Weight has created simple exercise plan ideas that are the best way to lose weight and you can find them below:

As well as doing exercise to lose belly fat you also need to start making a conscious effort to move more during the day. Here are our top hints for the best way to lose weight:
- If you can walk to work then get walking
- If you live far away then get off the bus/train earlier and walk some of the way
- If you are not back at work make sure you go for at least a 30 minute walk every day – this is good for baby and good for you and is one of the best way to lose weight.
- Where you have an option to take the lift – DON’T – walk up the stairs – I did this religiously and it worked so well on my legs.
- Try and move around at home more – during the day try and do some more leg lifts or squats or just do anything that gets you moving. I dance for 5 minutes to some music or do some waist twists – anything that gets my body moving but that isn’t too exhausting. If you make a habit of doing this you will really start noticing the difference quickly
- When you are on the sofa do butt crunches – easy to do and will burn calories and tone your bum.
