We are always moving to new stages in our lives and trying to increase the desire to start something new. Sports and health are always a priority for some people.
But what is harder for you, getting started or staying committed? This month we’ll talk about getting started. This is the ultimate goal to make health and fitness a permanent part of your lifestyle.
Here are some tips to help you get started on your journey:
1. Start to move more. Even if you don’t have an exercise program, you can begin to make an effort to move your body more every day. Take a walk, take the stairs, park a little further away from your destination, do some crunches while watching TV, play with your kids. There are so many ways to incorporate just a little activity into your everyday routine.
2. Drink water. Being dehydrated is not good for your body. It can make you overly tired and lethargic. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to prep your body so you are extra hydrated when you do start a program. The recommended amount is 8-10 glasses per day.
3. Avoid junk food. The reason you eat unhealthy food is because you buy it! Empty your desk, cupboards, fridge, freezer, car and secret stash drawer of foods and drinks. If you want to reach your fitness goal, prevent temptation! Do not buy junk food and avoid ordering unhealthy options at restaurants. Not only are they not good for you, they can cause damage to your body via weight gain and disease.
4. Find your workout space. You do not need a huge and expensive gym membership to start exercising, but it’s a good idea to start with an online fitness program at home or look for a good personal trainer to help you start your fitness campaign. Also, get your workout clothes out the night before to remind you that it’s time to exercise.
