I'm starting a series of posts about health and fitness. I hope it will help you! First you need to understand that wight loss is not the most important goal, so you should throw away your scale and start exercising! Why?
Exercise boost brainpower; Movement melts away stress; Exercise gives you energy; Exersice helps ward off diseas; Fitness pumps up your heart; Exercise lets you eat more
Develop a healthy and personalized meal plan
Plan your meals in advance
Keep a food diary (it’s very impostant, because you will see how much junk food you eat)
Watch your portion sizes
Don’t skip meals
Try to not snack
Drinking water instead of soda, coffee, alcohol, juice, or milk may help you cut hundreds of calories per day
Avoid tempting grocery aisles
Prepare your meals at home it’s better than going to Mc
Make time for exercise
Choose workouts that require your entire body to exert an effort
Get enough rest (BEAUTY SLEEP, YES!)
- Identify your source of motivation and your ultimate weight loss goals. Try writing down the exact reasons that stimulate you to reduce your weight so that you have a constant visual reminder of your goals, and be confident that you can succeed.
- Choose specific goals and cross them off a list as you achieve them. This will allow you to see regular progress while still keeping the main objective in mind. Putting up a picture of yourself on the refrigerator from thinner days may remind you that every time you drop a pants size, you are getting one step closer to both the old and new you.
- Remember that healthy weight loss takes effort, dedication, and consistency. Staying focused on your motivation can make it much easier to turn down the chocolate cake to go for a jog. Similarly, keep in mind that one mistake doesn’t mean you have failed. If you have taken a step backwards, re-center yourself and get right back into the habit of following your plans.
