Find Your Balance

Find Your Balance

That feeling when you get back to the gym after a week of absence and people say they have missed you. :)
But a short stay at the sea side did magic to my body, mind and soul. People need a break from reality now and then. It feels good to escape from hustle and bustle of every day life.

I hope you all had a rainbow summer! :)

“Balance in your life is so very important. Take time to find some.”

Focus On Who You Are Becoming

 Focus on Who You Are Becoming

Focus on what you want, not what you don’t want and arrange your life so that your surroundings move you in the direction of your goals. If your goal is to lose weight and get fit, empty your fridge and cabinets of sugary snacks and salty processed junk food and soft drinks. Clean out the pantry and stock up on healthy nutritious foods that will jump start your  weight loss path to a healthier, fitter you. 
Create personal weight loss inspiration board. The purpose of it is to motivate you and remind you of your goals. Select pictures that inspire you, quotes that you can connect with and pin them on the board. Use bright, eye-catching colors. Place inspiration board somewhere where you will see it daily and be inspired by its content.
Educate yourself. Look for resources on healthy weight loss. Local library can be a great place to start. Find websites that contain information, stories, workout videos,  weight loss programs that work for you.
But most importantly surround yourself with those that have similar goals and people who will support and encourage you on your journey.

Don’t Just Go Through The Montions

Don't Just Go Through the Montions

Whatever you do, do it with all your ability and put yourself into it. Don’t workout just for the sake of exercising. Do it because you want to yield some results.  Go to the gym because you want to get in shape, because it makes you feel confident, because it improves your health. Workout to keep yourself in good condition which will help you lead a longer and fuller life. When you’re at the gym, don’t just go through the motnion. Exercise smart: do the right exercises, push yourself, test your limits, challenge your muscles, visualize your body as strong and as fitter you would like it to become, etc.

There is no shortcut to weight loss. Weight loss is a lifestyle change. As you make small, gradual changes, you grow. When you grow, you learn and discover new things. However, you must ensure that you do not only grow physically but emotionally and mentally as well.

Positivity Is the Key

16-8-2015 0-14-19

It is often said that half of the battle is won in the mind. It’s important to clear your mind from negativity and doubt before you embark on your weight loss yourney. Using words such as “I can”, I am able”, “It is possible”, etc helps you inspire and motivate yourself. Positive thinking boosts your energy, improves your workout, transforms your habits and gives you greater inner power and strength.

Know this: If another person can lose weight and get fit, you can too. There is no reason whatsoever  why you can’t achieve your weight loss goal as well.  In all likelihood, the road to your weight loss goal will not be an easy one. You’ll have a few setbacks along the way, you’ll have bad days, you’ll struggle, you’ll want to throw in the towel and quit. When you hit the bump on the road, don’t give up.  Take a little break and then go over it or around it but make sure you keep going.
