For most people, one of their goals in life is to lose weight or get fit. Whether it’s to lose a hundred pounds or ten pounds, I’m sure it’s on a lot of our lists of things to accomplish. It doesn’t take a whole lot to accomplish your goal and you don’t need a personal trainer either.
It takes a few tweaks to your routine. Along with making more conscious decisions, healthy adjustments, and a little exercise, you make a huge impact on how you look and feel.
The first thing to do is to eat out, less. I didn’t say completely, so don’t freak out. Start with eating out less and making more healthier choices when ordering at that next fancy restaurant. If you are going to eat fast food, try not to supersize it either. Eat less junk food and snacks. Tackle this hard one by completely missing the snack aisle the next time you stock up on groceries. You could even eat smaller meals so you can splurge on that dark chocolate you saved for dessert.
Also, try your best not to skip breakfast. A small snack in the morning does wonders for your appetite all throughout the day, so grab that banana and peanut butter toast. This helps to ease off the constant snacking all day.
More things for you to do is purge your food cabinets! Empty out the bad stuff and reintroduce fresh foods and better snacking options. Stay pumped with a good set of uplifting songs on your phone or iPod.
Run your buns off. Literally. Even running for ten or fifteen minutes a few times a week can make a substantial difference.
Remember to stop the late at night snacking too. Most of the time its junk food anyway so forget about it and chug down that water.
The last thing to do is to stay motivated. Have a reward in mind, or create one for yourself. When you hit a goal, reward yourself. Keeping motivated can be the most difficult thing to do but if kept up, nothing will stop you from shedding the extra weight and looking and feeling like a million bucks.
