There is not a better way to lose weight than with some healthy habits. And I know there are many that do it but for myself, the best way to go about things is by being consistent and practicing something small everyday. Like eating a fruit smoothie day after day.
This simple strategy has proved successful. Even though as much as I’ve spent time on losing weight through workouts, I still struggle sometimes. Sometimes it can be tough, sometimes it can feel like you’ve failed. But most of all I have found a good way around it and I plan to share my methods here in this blog post.
There’s so many different ways to lose weight and get fit, and here is where the biggest difference comes from learning new things. It makes a big impact because you learn how to manage your health over time rather than simply focusing only or trying to change your body type and physique.
I think there are two main parts to building strong body. One of them is becoming stronger in both strength and endurance while the other one is getting stronger in both cardio and stamina. These areas are not so complicated but they may feel more complicated when compared to others. That’s because cardio is concerned about everything including endurance which is also essential if your going to be an athlete. When it comes to cardio, there’s the cardiovascular system, which includes heart, lungs and blood vessels. And this area is extremely important, as long as you work hard in improving your endurance, eventually you can add in running, jogging, hiking and even martial arts. Which means, no matter what sport you choose to practice, training and competing in, you will always need to make sure your body is prepared for the activity. It’s a very good place to start. Now let’s look at endurance training, it consists of several types namely; speed, agility, power, muscular strength, and endurance as well as flexibility, stability and coordination. All of these areas are equally important and necessary for athletes. They are a very large part of our ability to stay healthy overall.
When I first started my nutrition journey, I followed a very strict routine. Most of the time I would eat whole foods which meant I was mainly consuming grains and vegetables. While the last few years I started looking into why people do it, I eventually came up with reason that almost every single person does it these days. So I’m going to explain how it works. In order for me to stick around longer and grow stronger, I needed to improve my food choices.
Just like everyone else, I started doing intermittent fasting which is a new term. Intermittent fasting is when you don’t eat anything all of the time, but sometimes. This allows us to control our hunger impulses while still continuing to provide our bodies with nutrients. In doing this, we can eat healthy and prevent obesity and regain our health and sanity. Also, when you have done it for a while you can start noticing changes like reduced appetite, increased energy, sleep, decreased stress levels etc.
This was a great opportunity to start working out and see results I never thought I would ever come. As an example, I recently hit a plateau and decided to take part in a fitness workout class. Over the past twenty months, I had been trying to reach a goal of hitting a personal fitness goal and since I knew this was a possibility I went out there and practiced in hopes of reaching that goal of being able to carry on doing strength training. After weeks of practice sessions, all I could find were excuses. People just didn’t believe I was capable of performing such feats. Well guess what? No. Not even close. Just looking back at what I did, there’s not a lot of excuses. For me, that’s the key. Once you know these principles and know how to execute them perfectly, you can’t leave yourself at the mercy of negative thoughts and fatigue. You can put yourself under tons of pressure and worry constantly, but once you stop thinking about it and start sticking with it it becomes effortless. Every week I work out, I take in more calories than I usually eat per day and I use protein as a fat burner. When combined these processes make for a lifestyle that keeps me healthy and active and I’ll always remind myself, this is a daily habit you have to develop yourself.
You hear that saying “you must never give up”. That’s definitely true. Don’t put anything off until another day comes and you are putting everything on hold. We will always come up with reasons why we shouldn’t continue pushing ourselves and it doesn’t mean those reasons are not valid. If they are something that doesn’t require anything from your health we should never push away. And if those reasons are not based on you having the skills necessary to complete certain tasks then they probably are nothing. Either way, for my advice, get involved! Working out helps. Whether it is cardio or endurance training, it doesn’t really matter. What matters is working out everyday consistently. This makes it a habit that grows more easy each time you do it. Start making this habit a priority. Doing it now will turn into a habit and one that’s incredibly difficult to break down into smaller and smaller habits, but with more practice it is achievable.
