Now the question
“Can it be done? Can you lose weight and tone your body after recognizing the need to do so?” The answer “Why Yes you can!” for the older people like myself, You may not get ripped like you were at 20 lol of be able to fit into a size 2 dress like when you were 17 ladies, but you can lose weight, get in shape.. and be sexy again J. If you work slowly, patiently and work to tone the whole body, instead of a specific part. Strength training exercises like using weights and cardio like jumping rope, swimming, to name a couple are good to tone or strengthen the entire body.
You don’t need to invest massive amounts of time to get fit, of course, the more time you can invest, the faster you will see the results, but if you invest a few hours a week and are consistent, you will see the results. Here are five tips to help you achieve and maintain your health and fitness. These tips will give you a head start to superior health and wellness. These tips are not difficult to follow rather they are easy to follow
Create a Healthy Diet Plan!
It starts with what you put in your system. We cannot stress this enough. You do not have to deny yourself. Lose the “Diet Mentality” That means you don’t have to eat celery and carrots as your means of diet. Celery and carrots are great but they are good as a healthy snack. Not a main dish. Your eating habits should include a balanced diet with proteins low carbs, and healthy fats. Check out the website for Diet plan ideas.
You don’t have to give up all your favorite foods, instead educate yourself about the foods you are eating, and make your decisions based on what you know to be healthy, not what you always feel you want to eat. Not everything you love to eat will love you back! Ask your doctor.
Set realistic goals for yourself
You’ve heard this before. Gee, we’ve said it and published an article on this. That is how important it is. Remember to be patient and keep this thought in mind. If you can’t solve a big problem like losing 50 or 60 pounds quickly, then lose 3 pounds quickly. If you lose 3 pounds in a week, in 10 weeks you will be 30 pounds lighter, and you will have the motivation to lose another 30. Set small goals you can achieve, and maintain Remember 2 things. 3 pounds sound much easier than 30 pounds, right?
2. This is a journey, but it doesn’t have to be all sweat and grunting it out. Learn to laugh along the way and enjoy yourself. Setting smaller realistic goals will allow you to do just that. Laughter is great medicine, and if you are able to laugh along the way it makes getting there more fun than just work. “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy”
Get an exercise buddy
This is a journey you want to enjoy. You are going to push yourself and do things you haven’t done in years and it’s hard. If you find and get yourself an exercise buddy, it will make the journey and the work easier and more fun. “Teamwork makes the dream work” Try to share your ups and downs with your friends. It will help you stick to your plan. Simple help from a good friend can prevent you from abandoning your goals. Having a good buddy enables you to get out socialize more and enjoy your journey. Diet Rite is always here to talk with you and help you laugh and achieve your goals.
To reach your goal, you have to be consistent! To be consistent you have to have self-discipline. If you want to stick to a plan, you have to be disciplined, This does not mean exercising denial at every point, but it does not mean exercising indulgence at every opportunity. It means knowing when you avoid that slice of pizza or burger and fries, and when you can have a glass of wine with your friends, or even go out to dinner with the company providing you eat healthy and mindfully right? Be firm with yourself not hard on yourself. Be disciplined but also learn to relax and know you will reach your goal. It’s hard, but it’s not as hard as you think it will be. You Got This! Diet Rite will be there with you Having self-discipline increases your chances of success.
