Kids are in school time for parents to get focused!
Most people think way too much about how to lose weight. Maybe you do this, too. You spend hours gathering information about the latest trends and the quickest way to get in shape, and then become completely overwhelmed by all the conflicting information.
There are thousands of ways to exercise and eat healthy, so it’s easy to feel overwhelmed by it all, and end up doing nothing. The good news is that all effective fitness programs contain the same core elements, which I outlined for you below as 5 Easy Steps to Get Fit Fast:
Get Fit Step #1: Consistency is KEY
If you want a fit and strong body, exercise MUST be a consistent part of your life. You can’t exercise hard this week and then take the next two weeks off and expect to see results. Results come from consistency over time.
Focus on being consistent.
Get Fit Step #2: Set ATTAINABLE goals
Let’s be realistic here, you aren’t going to lose 20 pounds in a week. That’s not an attainable goal. Those who achieve the most amazing body transformations do so by reaching a series of progressive, attainable goals. If you would like help in determining what an appropriate, attainable goal would be for yourself, simply reach out to me, I’d be happy to help. 🙂
Don’t give up too quickly. Keep striving and the results will come. Slowly over time is the best way to make sure your new healthy eating lifestyle is permanent.
Get Fit Step #3: Make it CONVENIENT
Are you straining to include your chosen exercise routine into your life? If your exercise time isn’t a seamless part of your daily life, if it causes too much of a hassle and headache to accomplish, then you won’t stick with it. Find a time, a place and a modality of exercise that works in your real life, so that you can be faithful to Get Fit Step #1 by staying consistent.
Make exercise part of your routine. Find a time that can work and stick to it. Don’t stray back to your old habits.
Get Fit Step #4: Find something you LOVE
Similar to Get Fit Step #3, finding a modality of exercise that you LOVE (or can tolerate until you fall in love) is key to making this a permanent part of your life. You may never love swimming because you hate getting your ears wet, or you may never love biking because you’ve always struggled with balance. If you’re straining to get through a modality of exercise that you loathe, then you won’t stick with it. It’s best to move on to something different that you would enjoy more.
**Note for exercise-haters: If deep down you consider yourself an exercise hater, then DO NOT take this as a free pass to forego exercise altogether under the guise of not loving it.
