How many times have you said to yourself that you are going to make it a goal to be healthier? How many times have you attempted and once you didn't see instant results, you gave up and quit?Let me ask you this....why? Why are you giving up on yourself before you even begin? Understanding that this process will not happen overnight is your first obstacle to overcome. Knowing that this is not about "losing weight", it's about a lifestyle change is obstacle 2. Most importantly, staying committed will be your BIGGEST obstacle of all.
Well this is an athropology question believe it our not. The anwser is based on the design of the human structure and the reason we are currently top of the food chain. Simply you are designed to succeed in exercise. Here is a good video which shows the how "human" became top of the food chain. http://youtu.be/826HMLoiE_o
Fueling up before a workout is just as important as re-fueling after a workout. Many individuals do neither; they workout simply because they want to go eat that Big Mac at McDonalds, that Krispy Kreme Donut with their coffee in the morning or that giant bowl of ice-cream while watching Biggest Loser. While eating these foods on special occasions and in moderation is by no means a horrible thing to do, eating the aforementioned types of food after a workout, or going without eating right after a workout so that you can eat those foods later, is a big mistake.
Getting back into shape, and becoming healthier is the most chosen New Year’s Resolution. More than half of Americans make New Year resolutions year after year. Of that half, 75% give up within by March, and of the remaining 25% only a quarter of them truly maintain their resolution and turn it into a healthy lifestyle.
So often I talk to people about personal training and I hear how expensive they think training is. When it comes down to it, training really is a bit pricey. I agree with that. But so is other things. It's funny, I can talk to someone who has no problem with a trip, or two, to Starbucks everyday or who goes out to lunch or dinner nearly everyday. I love getting a nice treat. I love getting a good coffee. I love going out to dinner with my family and having the wait staff serve me. I love getting a mani/pedi. Ok. I'll face it, I love to be pampered.
With the beginning of a new year many of us will make exercise and fitness resolutions. Statistics show that approximately half of those who begin exercise programs drop out within the first six months.Situations factors as well as personal factors will affect your exercise adherence and motivation. So how do you ensure you don’t set yourself up for failure?
