Lose Weight with Alice Payne's Favorite Workout!
I hope you’re having an amazing week! Today, I want to share a powerful testimonial with you from Alice Payne. Alice is a social media influencer, content creator, and passionate Disney mom who creates engaging videos at Disney World in Florida with her husband and three kids. After having her second and third babies, she had trouble losing the extra weight and was looking for solutions.
She discovered my workout-from-home videos on my YouTube channel and lost 50 pounds in six months by working out, changing her diet, using portion control, doing intermittent fasting, and staying hydrated. How amazing is that?! Here is what she had to say on TikTok about my workouts:
“At the time of me losing weight, I had a very new baby and a two-year-old. I want to start by saying that I was breastfeeding, and I had just come off of Lexapro, but I still worked really hard to lose the weight. The first thing I did was at-home workouts with Rebecca Louise, specifically the Tiny and Slim Waist Workout video. I also drank a ton of water.” - Alice Payne
I’m so happy that Alice found my videos, and they helped her achieve the results she desired!

You can read along in this blog post to get a feel for the workout and then watch the video and follow along with me! Are you ready to work towards a tiny and slim waist? Let’s get started!
For this exercise, stand on your mat with your feet hip-width apart, and twist your body side to side. We are warming up our bodies and getting ready to have some fun! Keep going for 40 seconds.
Now, come down to the mat and get in a plank position. Then, slowly drop your hips to one side and then the other while maintaining your strong form. Make sure to take it nice and slow.
There is a modified version on your knees as well! After that, let’s hold our hips in place on one side and then the other. Hold for just a few seconds and then release! This exercise is really going to sculpt your waist and give you the definition you are looking for.
Oblique Heel Touches/Pulses
Let’s flip over and swivel around. Lie on your back, bring your chest up slightly, and then reach to touch your toes on each side. You’re crunching on either side of your obliques. You’ve got this! Before you finish, let’s pulse on each side for 10 seconds to get that extra burn. Can you feel it?!
Now, lay your shoulders back while lying flat and lift your legs up high in the air. In this exercise, you are going to reach toward your toes with your arms alternating across to the opposite leg. At the end, you are going to pulse each side for 10 seconds. How much do you want it? Let’s go for it!
Bring one leg down, but not quite touching the floor, and leave the other leg up towards the sky. Now, put your hands behind your head and bring your opposite elbow to the opposite leg and squeeze across. I know your abs are on fire, but let’s keep going! Now, switch your legs and bring the other one up and continue to crunch with the opposite elbow to the opposite leg. Think about how beautifully sculpted those abs will be and let that image keep you going!
Start slowly and bring the opposite elbow to the opposite knee as the other leg stretches out. Then, pick up the pace for 10 seconds. After that, let's stretch those abs! Flip over and put your hands on the ground directly below your armpits and lift up into upward dog, stretching out those burning abs! I am definitely feeling the burn!
Flip to your side and stack your legs on top of each other. Bend your knees and then extend your legs out together at an angle and back in again. Keep going! Your abs may still be on fire, but let’s push through it! Let’s picture the results you want. Aren’t you ready for a strong, toned core?
Full Sit-Up with Twist
I’m bringing a little twist to the full sit-ups we are going to do next. Lay on your back and have one leg bent and one leg flat. Then, do a full sit-up, and at the top, do a twist towards the straight leg. Let’s do this one for 40 seconds. You’ve got this!
We’ve got less than five minutes to go! Sit up and twist while bringing both hands to either side of your legs. Then come to the middle and squeeze in while you pulse to one side for 10 seconds and then the other side for another 10 seconds.
Stay seated and lift both of your legs up so you are sitting in a V-position with your legs and knees at a 90-degree angle. We are working the core muscles here — the lower and the upper abs. Twist and bring your hands to one side and the other while keeping your stomach muscles tight!
Alternating Leg Drops
We’ve got a little over three minutes left — let’s make it count! You’re doing amazing! Lay back on your mat and put your hands behind your head and your legs up. Then, slowly drop one leg at a time and alternate. Then, bring your chest up and twist your torso while you’re alternating your legs up and down. If you need to modify, then bend your legs and do bicycles while you are twisting. At the end of the reps, we are going to hold that position with one leg up and one leg down and then switch and hold again for 10 seconds.
Tabletop Twist and Leg Extensions
While lying down, bend your legs in a tabletop position and then lift your chest up and crunch and twist while you stretch out your arms and tap the alternating leg. Every single squeeze you are doing is working towards taking inches off your waistline. Picture that to stay motivated! Every little movement counts! Let’s end this exercise with a 10-second pulse on each side.
Since we are still in tabletop position, let's optimize this exercise with some leg extensions. Start from tabletop and then extend one leg out at a time. Don’t have your legs or feet touch the floor.
Bicycles and Hip Twists on Elbows
These are the last two exercises, so let’s finish strong! If you don’t get anything else done today, at least you can say you gave it your all during your workout, and that’s something to be proud of!
Let’s go back to bicycles, alternating your legs, and do this for one minute. Then, flip over and get in a plank position, and do those hip twists we did at the beginning of the workout. Tilt your pelvis and drop your hips from side to side, keeping your elbows planted on the mat.
