2016 is just around the corner and the question for you… Did you make your fitness goals and a plan how to achieve them or will you just join the majority of people who have a surge to do something for the first two weeks in January and then give up?
Well, I sure hope that you have made your fitness goals and a plan on how to get there.
Here are some Weight Loss and Fitness Tips that Will Help With Your Fitness Goals
Make a decision. Declare and identify reasons WHY it is important to you to address your Health and Fitness. Do you want to feel better? Do you want to have more energy? Do you want to be more active with your children? Or perhaps you want to fit in your clothes and be ready to hit the beach! There are literally thousands of reasons. But whatever you do… do NOT skip this step. This is soooo important!! We will talk about it later but at some point in your journey, you will have to reference this as it will serve as motivation on days that you want to fall back in your old habits. You know the rough days at work, or just simply do not feel like working out and find yourself reaching for JUNK food because you do not want to prepare your HEALTHY meal. Your WHY?!?
Set realistic goals. Be reasonable here. It took you more than a month to get where you are… be assured it will probably take you more than a month to get where you want to be. Great way to set goals is to be S.M.A.R.T- Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant and Timely.
De-Junk Your Kitchen. That’s correct. It will not be an easy task but MUST be done to compliment your success rate of achieving your goals. The objective is to sort out and give away/trash/donate snacks that you have that contain ridiculous amounts of sugar, chips and crackers, processed foods and any other junk food that you may have around. Oh and yeah, the objective is not only clean out the fridge but also go through the cabinets. On the days that you may be a little short on time, “de-junking” your supply will ensure that you do not fall in temptation to cure hunger with counterproductive foods that will hurt your fitness success.
Decide on exercise. This one is important as you will need to do something different than you always have. I prefer High Intensity workouts, but may not be the case for you. If you absolutely hate exercising, you may find some useful information in this article:
Stay Hydrated. This is very important, but it also matters what you use as a primary hydration source. While you may think that sports drinks (Gatorade, Powerade etc.) are good for you and athletes around the world drink them to hydrate, may not be the best option for you. These are generally pretty high in sodium and if you do exercise for
more than an hour a day and sweat a lot, then YES it is a good choice but otherwise not so much. The BEST is keeping it simple- Plain water. Period. Overtime you may get creative and make some flavored water (using natural ingredients) but keep it simple. You should rethink your intake of Soda’s and other sugary drinks even your morning coffee- it is fine as long as it is BLACK. I know that was very challenging for me as I used bunch of cream and sugar before, but it can be done! The question is how BAD do you want it? And remember, just take one step at a TIME!
