This means that it is highly unlikely that you will take time to go to your gym or to go for a run or even go outside. Plus, having a new baby means you need to be there for your child at all times. Not only will you lack the motivation for working out, you’ll have to work hard to find the time for it as well. You’ll be glad to know that, in this article, we will talk about a few things that you can easily do from home when you have the time (baby’s naptime is great for this) that will help you get back to your pre-pregnancy weight in no time at all.

Some styles of dancing are great ways to lose weight, Latin is only an example of one with two effects that can help. Latin dancing not only burns lots of calories as you swing your hips, tap your feet and roll your shoulders, but it can also make you feel sexier when you need it most. Check out some latin dancing videos or workout dvds to help you learn a few dance moves to help you shed pounds after pregnancy. This can be extremely fun to workout this way and best of all you won’t even feel like you are working out at all. While you watch the weight fall off you will continue to have fun and will be more likely to stick with it. Forearm plank breathing is another exercise you can use to lose pregnancy weight. Once in this position you will lower yourself until your forearms are flat on the floor. Now that your forearms are on the floor straighten your legs so that the body will make a straight line. Take a deep breath and slowly let it out as you squeeze your abs and hold the position. Next lower your chest to the floor doing pushups for 30 seconds. Do these steps three times. Doing this will strengthen your core while helping your posture and look better.
Lunges: Lunges work all of the major muscles in your legs which makes them wonderful calorie burners. Not only do these lunges help you lose pounds, they build your muscles which helps you burn calories, even while you are resting. To do a proper lunge, stand with your feet hip-width apart, put your hands on your hips and bring your abs in. Move your left foot forward until your knee bends at a 90 degree angle. Keep your right leg straight behind you and lower your body until your right knee until it very nearly hits the floor. Slowly come back up and repeat with the other leg. For a proper workout, do this five times with each leg.
