BOOTYLICIOUS TIPS: Mum reveals her top 3 tips for toning her booty

Julia impressed us all with her amazing body transformation. Who wouldn’t be proud of that incredible booty?

The mum-of-two says, “I finally fit into the bikini I bought two years ago. I can’t believe the transformation in such a short amount of time.

“Not only have I lost 11kg and lots of centimetres but I have also gained a whole lot of energy and a positive mindset.

“I’m super excited to continue my journey with The Healthy Mummy and I can’t wait to rock this bikini at the beach this year.”

Julia says she decided she wanted to get healthy and tone her body up 12 months ago.

“I decided I wanted to be a healthy role model for my kids, but most important of all, I wanted to be happy again and finally feel confident in my own skin,” she says.

“So two days later, I signed up to the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges, ordered a Healthy Mummy Smoothie and rejoined my local group fitness classes.

“I am now 12 months into following the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenges as well as having 1-2 Healthy Mummy smoothies a day and I have lost 11kgs.”

Julia’s top 3 tips for toning her booty

1. Weighted exercises

Julia suggests using weights while you are working out to help build muscle in your booty.

“I do a variety of body weight exercises either using kettle bells, dumbbells for squats and lunges. I even use my own kids as weights too,” she says.

You can find a HEAP of exercises on our 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge exercise hub.

And as part of our September 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge we have launched our BOOTY BUSTING WORKOUT VIDEOS where you can tone your booty in under 15 minutes a day. You can also find these video under the Challenge App exercise tab.

2. Take progress pictures

Each week you may only be seeing small achievements so it’s important to step back and look at the bigger picture. Julia credits herself for staying on track with her weight loss and booty exercising regime by taking progress pics.

“I’m glad I took before and after photos, because even if the scales aren’t moving I can still see process and know that I’m moving in the right direction,” says Julia.

“I had to learn that scales don’t always tell the truth and now I’d rather go by my progress pictures to reflect on my achievements.

“Looking at how far I’ve come gives me the right motivation to stay on track.”

3. Change up your workout routine

Julia encourages other mums who want to lose weight to mix up their workout routines.

“I find nothing worse than feeling bored with my workouts. It’s almost certain I will lose interest and fall off the exercise wagon,” says Julia.

“It doesn’t always have to be a walk, run or a gym. Jumping on the trampoline, having a dance off with your kids or running around the play centre with your kids is a great way of staying active – plus, it’s also lots of fun.

“I shake up my workout routine and try new exercises all of the time.”

We love your amazing tips, Julia! Thanks for sharing!
