Being fit is not about crash dieting and vigourous exercise. It’s about balance in said spheres and life in general. Being fit requires a lifestyle change, which can sometimes seem daunting and not manageable but with a bit of patience and desire to change healthy lifestyle is as manageable as anything.
Stay On Track With Your Healthy Lifestyle
Not feeling like working out? There are a few ways to stay motivated to keep up with your exercise regime. Try a different program or take a free fitness class, sign up for a marathon or competition or simply go shopping. Do something that motivates you to work out constantly as motivation has a tendency to fade.
Make sure you always stock on mostly clean healthy stuff. Treats are fine but they shouldn’t make the most of your grocery shopping. Put veggies and fruit on top of your list along with healthy fats, nuts, and whole grains.
Food prep is half of success. Grabbing a lunch on the go can add extra calories to your daily intake so packing a healthy brown bag/lunch box meal is a great idea. Also having a week or so worth of meals will free up your evenings from cooking.
Getting creative with both your workout and diet will not only help you stay on track motivated with your results but it will also make the healthy lifestyle more manageable and fun.
While being healthy is vital enjoying life is equally important. Don’t deprive yourself from treats or favorite foods or activities (like lying on a couch). Just make sure to eat clean and exercise most of the time and keep treats under control. This will not only lead to a healthy but full life, but you will also be able to control cravings and binge eating.
