It happens to everyone. That moment when you realize that it’s time to do something about your body.
It may happen when you’re looking in the mirror or standing on the scale.
Your first thought is to go on a ‘diet’ but as quickly as that enters your mind the ghosts of a hundred diets past return…along with all the thought "Diets never work for me."
Then you wonder, why bother?
The weight will come back, as it always has. Then you’ll be back in front of the mirror as discouraged as ever.
The answer is not to go on another diet.
The answer is to change your mindset.
Making the Change.
It’s time to lose your ‘all or nothing’ mentality. Embrace simple, small changes that will add up to big improvements in your lifestyle. These are your main venues for change:
What You Eat.
Let’s face it, most of the foods you eat aren’t the healthiest. Some are downright terrible (the burger and fries you had last week). While others are simply excessive (the snacks you eat while watching TV).
The solution to cleaning up your daily diet is NOT to go back on a ‘diet’. In fact, never go on a ‘diet’ again. (Yes, you heard right!) Instead I want you to make permanent healthy changes to your eating habits.
Here are some practical examples:
Choose salad over chips or fries
Eat fresh produce with every meal
Limit desserts to one or two per week
Cut out mindless snacking
Drink water, not soda
I don’t expect you to eat a perfect diet every day of the week – that’d be ludicrous. You should, however, make MORE healthy choices every day than unhealthy ones.
How You Move.
Exercise is a huge component to a healthy lifestyle, and quite frankly you’re not getting enough of it. How often does an entire week go by without you ever lacing up your tennis shoes? Don’t disregard the importance and power of a good workout.
Your new healthy lifestyle means exercising on most days of the week. This may seem tough, but I have the perfect solution – Sweat Nation Can provide you with training programs created for busy people just like you who only have so much time to dedicate to exercise.
I understand how hard it is to find the motivation to stay consistent and to push yourself. Make exercise a no-brainer—when you have a plan it makes the decision that much easier to follow
Here are simple ways to move more:
Watch less TV
Stretch stiff muscles every day
Play at the park with the kids &/or friends
Go for a jog
Do some pushups every morning - In fact start 30 day push challenge today. (Do as many as you can do, and every day try to add just one more, even if you need to take a break)
While none of the above are meant as substitutes for a solid exercise routine, they are great ways to become more active and to improve your lifestyle.
Your life is the sum of all the choices that you make. Swing the balance in your favor—make a majority of your choices better choices.
So the next time you’re in front of the mirror you won’t worry about your weight.
You’ll relish it.
Are you ready to take on life's challenges, your lifestyle and body? All you need to do is take that first step!!! #getafterit #SweatNation #PhysicallyInfinite
