- One Step At A Time:
Don’t rush into things. People are generally to quick to rush into things because of impatience, and when something doesn’t work out for them, get disappointed and quit. STOP. This is exactly what not to do. Realise it and be conscious of it, and you won’t make the same mistake. Slow down take the process step by step and you will win the race. Start small to begin with and build the habit. When it is effortless the process will take care of itself and you can extend your efforts.
- Accountability Partner:
Find someone to keep you in check. A Mum or Dad figure, teacher figure. Someone you have to report to, who will check up on you. Pick someone who will be honest with you. Yeah don’t pick your best friend or your significant other who will be afraid to upset you.
- No Processed Foods:
Yep, that’s right nothing processed. No sugar, pasta, bread, soda, alcohol etc… etc… If you can’t find it nature as it is or very close forget it.
- Cardiovascular Exercise:
Cycling, running, swimming, skipping, punching a boxing bag etc… etc… Yep, get out there at an intensity that will make you really breathe and sweat. If these aren’t happening your just kidding yourself. At least 30 minutes, 3 to 4 sessions a week.
- Strength Training:
Weights? Well some sought of strength training. Could be just good old fashioned calisthenics like push ups, sit ups, pull ups (modified to suit), squats etc… Hit a gym, workout at home, or down the park. Combining strength training with cardiovascular training will exponentially help. If your unsure get some guidance.
You have to know where you’re going, what you’re achieving, just like why you’re doing this. Your goals need to be specific, and have a deadline, that is, a time frame to achieve it by.
To many people skip a proper breakfast then by mid-morning binge on junk that is terrible for them. Set yourself up to win, by having something prepared and ready to go. Some people don’t like to eat first thing in the morning, and that is OK, so have a mid-morning light breakfast of healthy alternatives, like fruit or vegetables. Something that isn’t just empty calories and completely unhealthy.
- Grocery List:
Pre-plan your diet and purchase ahead of time, like once or twice a week. For some people this won’t work because of their particular situation. That’s how life is. So improvise. Plan ahead for healthier alternatives to the fast food lane or the corner store deep fried junk food.
You owe it to yourself, to be healthy, to be fit, to live life.
