Most of gain us weight because we are so busy we don’t make the time to take good care of ourselves. We get engrossed in commitments to our jobs and children and don’t stop to consider that maintaining our weight is part of maintaining ourselves. That has made healthy life style programs popular, and for the most part, these are very effective.
Before selecting one, set your goals. What is it you are striving for? Do you want to just be healthier so you are around longer for your children and your spouse? Would a toned body help improve your chances for a promotion at work? Only you can decide these things.
Every program requires prior planning. You will need to schedule times for workouts, eating, sleeping. Most request you come up with a worksheet to monitor your progress. Don’t ignore this! Set small goals, and don’t forget to pat your self on the back when you reach each one! It’s good for the ego, and your ability to stick to the program when you can prove to yourself that the steps you are taking are actually working.
You’ll need to eat a balanced diet and learn not to take those tempting extra portions. You’ll need to exercise. Try to make that a fun time too. You could take nature hikes with the children and your spouse, even if only in the local park. Consider a pet that has to be exercised daily, too. Play ball in the backyard or at a park, skate or dance. Take a walk during your lunch. Have fun!
