We’ve talked about this before, but committing to fitness is difficult and deserves a repeat visit. I found this article with some new ideas to help you make fitness party of your regular routine.
First and foremost, it is vitally important that you get rid of any barriers that are in your way. These barriers can appear in your life in many different ways, including negative energies, negative people, unhealthy stress, unhealthy habits and poor eating. Once you have removed all of these dangerous barriers from your life, you can truly begin your new weight loss and health adventure. Here are some more tips for beginning:
>> First and foremost you should detox your body. It is important to cleanse your body of negative toxins and other issues that are in your body.
>> Make sure that you have a proper pair of shoes and comfortable clothing for working out. Your work out does not need to be brand name, but it should be comfortable, breathable and easy to work out in.
>> Put together a workout bag so that you always have everything you need. When you are prepared to work out and be healthy, it becomes even easier to take the necessary steps.
>> If you do not feel motivated enough to work out at home, join a gym. Paying for a gym is usually enough to motivate people to attend, and once you try it, you will find something that you like!
>> Let your fitness habits and eating routine grow, change and evolve with you. As you lose weight or hit plateaus, allow these things to be adjusted accordingly. Just make sure that you are always committed to your plan, do not stop just because you plateau – Just change things up instead.
>> Think about the benefits often. You will be less stressful, you will be healthier all over, you will have less depression, and you will feel and look better all over. You will also enjoy life better because you value yourself enough to take care of your body.
I have to disagree with the first (and foremost) point, and wouldn’t say detox ranks high in scientific importance, but otherwise it’s a pretty solid credo. But it can be more basic than all that. First, you have to decide (aka commit). Then, you have to do (aka get off the couch). Everything else is a hint for continued progress, but committing to fitness really just comes down to…well, committing to fitness. It’s binary – yes, you will. Or no, you won’t.
