Are you happy with your body? Do you feel good about yourself? Do you wish you had more energy?
These are great questions you should be asking yourself. The one thing women say the most is, "Between work and my family I just can't find time." Unfortunately, women often put everyone in their lives first and don't leave enough time for them selves. This can often times be very damaging to a woman both mentally and physically.
When you're not feeling great it makes very hard for you to give 100% to your family or work. One thing to remember is the better you feel, the better you will do at work, at home, and in all of your relationships. Everything in your life improves when you feel better about yourself.
Many people feel they need to exercise 4-5 times a week to meet their health and fitness goals. Well, guess what . . . you can burn off excess body fat, increase energy levels, and start feeling great with just 2-3 workouts a week, lasting only 20-30 minutes!
The keys to being successful with fitness are:
1. Having a well thought out and detailed plan
2. Making time for you and being consistent
If you fail to plan you plan to fail!
I'm sure many of you have heard that saying before. Well, it applies to everything in life . . . including exercise. If you want to be successful you need to map out a plan that includes steps or strategies that will take you closer and closer to your goals.
When it comes to goal setting and planning it is very important that you be specific. The more specific your goals and planning the easier it is to monitor your progress and make adjustments to your plan if necessary.
When it comes to making time for fitness, what we suggest is actually scheduling your self an exercise appointment. Pull out your calendar right now and block out at least 1 or 2 times a week when you can spend 20-30 minutes exercising. Take this appointment very seriously . . . just like you would any other.
One of the main reasons going to a fitness centre is so effective is because it keeps you accountable. It's a lot harder to skip an exercise appointment with a trainer because you're paying for that time and because you would most likely feel like your letting them down.
Remember, your health is the most important thing you have... do everything you can to maintain and improve it.
