Now I’m not talking about a long term relationship here or signing a contract. I’m talking about you and your body. Are you committed to it like it is to you?
Are you able to go in for the long haul to nurture it, work it and get the very best out of it?
Most people want a quick fix and aren’t willing to put the time, money and effort into themselves. Which I find a little sad. You deserve the best after all don’t you? Don’t we all deserve to be the best version of us and be happy?
Say you want to loose a stone, do you know that a healthy weight to lose each week is 1-3lb. So this isn’t going to happen till 5-9weeks. Have you thought how much exercise you will have to do to create a deficit on the scales? Are you willing to give up alcohol, snacks and sugary treats? Are you willing to carry this on after you have reached your goal to prevent putting the weight back on?
These are all factors you need to consider when trying to lose weight.
Going to the gym twice a week and eating good all week but not at the weekend, isn’t going to shift anything fast.
Ask yourself…. Are you ready to change your lifestyle to a healthy lifestyle? If not then you are not committed. Any progress you do make will be ruined when you go back to your unhealthy lifestyle again and old habits.
HEALTHY IS A LIFESTYLE
Factors to consider when committing to a healthy lifestyle:
- Eat lean meats like chicken turkey over fatty meats like pork and beef
- Exercise at least 3 times a week and be active every day
- Cut out most sugars and saturated fat from diet
- drink 2 litres of water every day
- eat 5 portions of fruit and veg a day
- Remove tempting foods from the house and learn to say no to treats
- Do not eat in front of the TV and eat off a plate
- do not skip meals
Now with regards to exercise I don’t mean walking on a treadmill for 20-30mins. Do you know you will have to lift weights, do you know how to lift weights?
Are you committed enough to get the help of a personal trainer?
A personal trainer can help speed up the process of you reaching your goals as they have the knowledge and qualifications to programme exercises for you that will meet your needs.
This again takes time, commitment and money.
But imagine how much better you are going to feel, and how your confidence will improve when you reach your goal!!
Your look amazing, feel better inside and outside, and your body will thankyou.
Now all you have to do is make that commitment to keeping yourself that way and living a longer healthier life.
As always feel free to for any help and advice.
