Slimming World Sunday - Easy Body Magic Routine

image from
Apologies for the extremely late blog post today. I've had a really busy week with very limited access to my computer, so I was unable to schedule this post in advance for it's usual time! But it's better late than never I guess! Now that my sister's wedding has come and gone (it was an amazing day, but I was feeling a little delicate yesterday as a result!) I'm now fully focused on getting to my target as soon as I can. Today marks the start of my SP days up until my next weigh in on Thursday, and I'm also increasing my workouts again. I haven't exercised properly in weeks so I feel like I'm starting a few steps back on the fitness levels I've previously reached, so I'm starting off with quite a simple routine to get myself going again.

As it is quite a simple routine, I will be sticking to it every day and perhaps building in a little extra once I've got my fitness back up again. It's quite a good routine to start out with if you are only just starting to incorporate exercise into your weight loss journey - it's definitely nothing like the torturous workout DVDs I've tried in the past, which aren't always great for beginners.

So to start off, I do the following moves in the morning:

10 jumping jacks
10 push ups
20 crunches
20 squats 

I'll repeats this circuit three times - sometimes more if I feel like I can push myself. Then, whatever time of day I can fit it in, I'll walk for at least 30 minutes. I might do it on my lunch break, when I walk down to the shop, or on the treadmill whilst watching EastEnders! I try to keep it at an even pace, just as long as I'm going fast enough to get my heart rate up.

So that's it for the moment, just until I can get back into the swing of things - I don't want to push myself so hard that I don't enjoy my workout and I end up giving up altogether. No doubt I'll be sharing more workouts with you as my fitness improves again.

What's your favourite form of exercise?


  1. Great routine! I'm starting to get into the swings again as well <3 p.s. I love your nikes!
