Thoughts on Altering Your Lifestyle and Getting Healthy

A lot of people are struggling with starting a workout program and eating better. I have been a part of a few weight loss programs this last month and everyone is having the same issues. People say that they lack the time to dedicate to a consistent regiment and are making poor food choices on top of that.  I can sympathize with that to a point, but not completely. 

Make time! You make time for anything else that you want to do and this should be no different, considering that you really want to make the changes. People seem to make mountains out of mole hills and turn this into a bigger problem than it needs to be. They seem to think that they have to rearrange their whole life in order to obtain a healthier lifestyle.

You do not have to make more than 30 minutes a day in order to make a significant difference in your health. It is about time management and making time for the things that are necessary. It takes some sacrifice of your old lifestyle and implicating new things that benefit your new goals.

Schedule a half hour into you day first thing in the morning. Oh wait, that interferes with your sleep right. Well how about going to bed a half hour earlier. Get off of your phone and go to sleep. Perhaps you can take a half hour before bed. You can exercise while youíre watching ďDancing with the StarsĒ or whatever youíre into.

Just stop making the excuse that you have no time because you have bad time management.

You can start by doing very simple movements such as pushups, crunches, lunges or squats, jumping jacks, mountain climbers, steam engines or any exercises you choose. If you can only get 15 minutes at first then at least get that in. Start with five reps of everything and work up from there. As you get stronger and better you can increase your time and reps. This along with cleaning up your eating will make a big difference in your conditioning. 

The most important thing about eating healthy is being prepared. Most people fail in their attempts because they are not prepared, get hungry and eat the first thing they can find. While you are cooking make extra food, cut vegetables, boil eggs and have fibrous fruits available for you to eat.  Itís so much easier when you have healthy foods available and ready. This really doesnít take that much extra time. 

Remember to keep it simple and stick to foods that are easy for you to prepare and that you enjoy. Donít make this harder than it needs to be. Donít bring that extra stress into this attempt to be healthier. This is a life change, a life style, not a temporary fix. Work this into your life so that it becomes part of your daily routine and declare this as your new life. Visualize your workouts, your meals and how you want to look. Visualize yourself the way you want to be and how you want your lifestyle to be.

Good luck and UNLEASH YOUR HERO.
