Having a bad day? Hit the gym and sweat out the bad vibes. It really does work.
Every step toward the goal requires some kind of sacrifice, struggle and effort. So every time you don’t hit the snooze button, every time you overcome “I don’t feel like it” voice or ignore the “I don’t have time” excuse you MAKE PROGRESS.
Speaking from experience, I know it takes a strong will to convince yourself to wake up early in the morning and hit the gym, but remember that each time you manage to push past the resistance to stay in bed, you WIN.
To lose weight and get fit, strong and healthy, keeping your body in motion is essential.
Happy Tuesday to you.
“Setting up short term weight loss goals for yourself will make it easier to stay on the right track. They will keep you motivated and they will remind you of just how far you’ve come on your journey.”
What’s your weight loss goal for upcoming week?
“Keep going. No matter what you do, no matter how many times you screw up and think to yourself “there’s no point to carry on”, no matter how many people tell you that you can’t do it – keep going. Don’t quit. Don’t quit because a month from now you will be that much closer to your goal than you are now. Yesterday you said tomorrow. Make today count.” -Anonymous
It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But evidence shows that people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 1 to 2 pounds per week) are more successful at keeping weight off. Healthy weight loss isn’t just about a “diet” or “program”. It’s about an ongoing lifestyle that includes long-term changes in daily eating and exercise habits. To lose weight, you must use up more calories than you take in. Since one pound equals 3,500 calories, you need to reduce your caloric intake by 500—1000 calories per day to lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week.

I heard a woman saying the other day: “I was watching this diet pill commercial that said ‘works only with diet and daily exercise…” And I was thinking if I was dieting and exercising regularly, I wouldn’t need the stupid pills…duh!”
For me a good humor is sign of intelligence…
