At a certain point, everyone gets demotivated about their fitness level. You have your doctor telling you to workout more. You have fitness magazines convincing you that you have no clue what you are doing. And you have friends and family wanting you to go out to dinner with them for the third time this week (and it’s only Wednesday).
You are being pulled in 1000 different directions; it is understandable that you are confused and frustrated. Getting back on track is easier than you think, no matter where you are starting from.
The 5 keys in this post will have you feeling and looking better in no time. Then, you will be ready to go out and conquer the rest of your fitness goals, whatever they may be.
Get Moving More
Everyone is telling you to exercise, but what’s the best exercise to do? It doesn’t matter. The first, and most important thing is to get moving more. It doesn’t really matter what you are doing as long as you are moving your body utilizing your own muscles (Lime Scooters don’t count).
Think about your typical day. You sit while you are eating. You sit during your daily commute to and from work. You sit at your desk all day at work and in meetings. You sit in waiting rooms at appointments. Some people even sit while shopping (online).
Make your first goal to at least double your current number of steps. Pick a parking spot that is further from the door. Get up every hour and walk a lap around the building. If you can walk to where you are going, walk instead of taking the car. Or invest in a nice bike. Get out and get some fresh air. Not only is this good for you physically, but it will also to help clear your mind of all the stress you experience daily. If the weather is less than ideal to walk outside, find a building with several stories and walk the stairs. Set a goal for the amount of time you want to spend walking daily and increase your goal weekly.
Do simple exercises throughout the day. There are a number of exercises that you can do that don’t take a great deal of time to complete, but achieve the goal of getting you moving more. You can mix and match these movements to keep things interesting and fresh.
