Being fit is in and it’s about time! A lot of times when we are looking for inspiration in what we want our dream bodies to look like, it is easy for us to get caught up in images that are unrealistic for us personally. When starting your new fitness journey, always remember that what may work for one person may not work for another. Everyone is unique and it may take time to find out what works best for you and your body.
Alright! So you’re ready to get started but you don’t know exactly where to begin? The first step is choosing a schedule that is realistic for you and aligns with your day to day activities. You can start with a small commitment. Gradually work your way up to working out for a longer period of time or more days in the week. A good starting point I can recommend is working out the first 30 minutes of your day so you can get it out the way, and with little distraction.
To go along with your new workout routine, the next step is to make sure that you are developing better eating habits. Switching to a totally new diet and eating habits may be a bit challenging at first. However, when you are committed, there is always a solution. I suggest you start your new regimen with a detox. Detoxing allows your body to reset and essentially prepare for your new diet. During your detox, you might decide to switch to a diet that consists of not eating meat. Or, you may opt to cut things out of your diet such as sugar or carbs. Whatever you choose, just remember you have to start somewhere. You can start small and add to your diet later.
Now that you have a solid game plan for working out and eating healthier, you can start setting goals for yourself! When you set goals you can hold yourself accountable and you will be able to determine if your new diet and workout regimen is best for you by your results. Queen, you can do whatever you set your mind to! Write down your goals review them every day! Grab a girlfriend or two and hold each other accountable for your workout routine and diet. Better yet, do it together! Your health is imperative for your future. Don’t only do it for yourself, do it for your legacy!
