“I drink around 3 litres of water a day and it has made my skin appear much healthier and smoother,” says Healthy Mummy Julia Meadows who transformed her booty.

If you can’t seem to make it to your daily water intake without becoming bored, try infusing your water with lemon.

Drinking lemon water first thing in the morning gives your body a kick start to the day and has these awesome benefits.

Here are 5 ways to increase your water intake.

Eat specific food

Food to build the butt are either amazing sources of PROTEIN or CARBOHYDRATE dense foods.

When it comes to carbohydrates they’re important for building muscle mass as they are the main source of FUEL, and help improve fatigue. No carb enemy’s here.

Some foods to help build your booty muscles are:

  • Tuna
  • Eggs
  • Whey protein
  • Sweet potato

Make sure to recover

Yoga Moves To Tone Your Butt And Thighs

Recovery after a workout is just as important, if not MORE important than the workout itself. This is because this is when the muscles have their time to recover, build and get ready for their next session! Without this recovery, injury, lack of energy or plateauing could come about.

Try a Healthy Mummy smoothie on your next rest day. Jam-packed with all the good stuff your body could need, like vitamins, minerals, and of course protein. You can bulk them up with fruit, nuts, seeds and veg of your choice to suit your calorie needs.

You should establish a routine that allows you to incorporate stretching such as yoga to help let your muscles recover from the strenuous training from the days before.

Try stretching after your next workout or follow our cool down video found on the 28 Day Weight Loss Challenge.
