|Tips For Creating a Fitter and Healthier You|
|Written by Renée Primeau|
With busy lives, making better eating choices and all around just taking better care of ourselves seems like it could be difficult but it doesn't have to be.
Here are a few tips to help get yourself on track and help you reach your health and fitness goals.
Establish Goals. Write out your goals, why would you like to accomplish these goals? How will your life benefit from reaching these goals? Break larger goals into smaller ones. This way you can see every little achievement for the big accomplishment that it is.
Get Professional Guidance. f you know you want to make changes but you just really aren't sure where to start, you're not alone. That's why there are professionals to help. Never be afraid to search and ask for help. By having someone guide you, even if it's only in the beginning, you have the opportunity to learn so much. Also keep in mind how much easier it is to make improvements when you're objective. For most of us it can be a little difficult to be objective with ourselves.
Start with a Healthy Breakfast EVERY Morning. It sounds simple and unimportant but it is frequently missed and crucial to your lifestyle change success. Only a select few people can miss this morning meal and still meet their fitness goals. Eating a low fat healthy meal in the morning can help prevent over eating later in the day. It can also help prevent choosing bad foods too.
Select the Right Foods. When shopping for food always go for fresh produce and good quality meat. Stay away from all processed food and go organic whenever possible. Always remember, you are replacing the cells in your body with the food you choose to eat, so make the best choices possible.
Your Meals in Advance. Try cooking a large amount of food at once,
freeze or refrigerate it in containers after pre-portioning it. This way you
always have good choices ready and on hand if you need to run out, get called
into work, are busy with the kids, or life happens in some other way.
Eat more frequently. Eating more frequently boosts metabolism and minimizes fat storage. Never go longer than 3 hours without eating. Aim for meals every 2 - 3 hours. Frequent eating results in consistent energy levels throughout the day. Eating frequently also reduces the risk of reaching for the not so good food choices.Take Charge of your Success! Remember that small changes a little bit at a time all lead to big improvements. Keep track of your choices, how you feel and, most importantly always remind yourself of your goals. This will help keep you on track and help make needs for improvement visible. If you stay on track you will be amazed at what you can achieve and how quickly these changes will be seen by yourself and others.
