So you want to be healthy. You want to get into good shape. You want to feel better, and look better-Right? Well there a just few things you MUST do to get there. They are simple, and not very hard.
The first thing you MUST do is consider why you are not already in shape. You have to be honest with yourself here. Are you a lazy bones, or just a procrastinator? I know, I know. You don't have time to go to the gym and workout for two hours or run five miles. What? You have to watch every TV show every evening? Perhaps you are working late most evenings and just don't feel like doing anything after getting home.
I hear you! But you either want to shape up or you don't. The second thing you MUST do then is make a commitment. something like "I will do (10) WHATEVERS every morning when I get up." That's all just ten. A good "easy" stretch and then 10 WHATEVERS.
(3 minutes?) Perhaps ten squats, or ten bend-overs. Then maybe commit to walking just (2) blocks, three evenings a week. That would only take about 30 minutes.
If you can't find 30 minutes a day three days a week then you are just kidding yourself about the "commitment thing," and getting into shape is just something you like to talk about. If you are committed you will find yourself adding exercises, and extending your walk in a very short time. You will start to feel better and "that's right" look better as well.
Start small but set high goals. It is said that if you write your goals down it works better. I always set short, medium, and long term goals with everything I want to do. I set my long term goals much higher then I really think I can reach. It makes me work harder.
A little over three years ago my wife made a commitment to start running and get in shape. At first she had a hard time walking just one mile. But, she stayed with it and now she runs marathons! That's right she has run the Houston Marathon for the last three years. She started our with small steps, but planned big. It worked for her, and it can work for you.
The next thing you MUST do to get into shape is STOP PIGGING OUT! OK, Don't go crazy here. I don't believe in all these "fad" diets. Just try leaving "something" on your plate at every meal. Try to find a real restaurant. Not just a fast food joint. Drink a large glass of water at lunch instead of a soft drink, or sweet tee. It will be better for you and save you some money as well. Saving money is just like making money I always say.
If some of you found this helpful I'm glad.
Have a GREAT day, and good health to ya.
