It happens to everyone. That moment when you realize that it’s time to do something about your weight.
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 frustration.
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 lifestyle.
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 fast food 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, I never want you to go on a ‘diet’ again. (Yes, you heard me 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.
- Skip the bread on your sandwiches and choose a lettuce wrap.
- Eat fresh veggies with most meals.
- Remove poor quality dairy or choose high quality. Learn the difference by clicking on the link here: Dairy
- Incorporate a cheat day.
- Cut out mindless snacking. Eat every 4-5 hours.
- Drink water, not soda.
- Consider Paleo.
I don’t expect you to eat a perfect diet every day of the week – that would 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 – my training programs were 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 — contact me to get started on a lifestyle enhancing program today. My contact information is at the bottom of this post.
Here are simple ways to move more:
- Watch less TV
- Stretch or foam roll stiff muscles every day
- Play at the park with the kids
- Go for a jog
- Do some burpees every morning- 30 is a good number 🙂
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 lifestyle is the balance of all the choices that you make regarding your body. Swing the balance in your favor—make a majority of your choices health conscious.
So the next time you’re in front of the mirror you won’t worry about your weight.
You’ll relish it.
