We never want to suggest that losing weight is a “simple” process; it’s not.
But getting started doesn’t have to be complicated and too much stress along the way doesn’t help your efforts. Here are 3 ways you may be over-thinking your weight loss journey, with positive tips for rising above!
1.) Get Moving:
Exercise routines are good. But if organizing the what, why, and how of a traditional workout is preventing you from getting started, just start moving. Then, each week, move a little more. Gym equipment doesn’t magically make the weight loss happen. Including movement into your day is an excellent way to jump-start the journey.
2. Eat, sleep, and be merry:
The truth is, abs aren’t made solely in the gym or kitchen. Nutrition plays a big part, as I’m sure you’re aware. But so does sleep and joy! So, if it’s the exercise that is off-putting or hard to commit to at the moment, start with the trifecta. Sleeping has a direct effect on your hunger and blood sugar, both which may affect your waistline.
3. Eliminate must-dos and celebrate can-dos:
Seriously, there are no “rules” in fitness. There’s a method to the madness and perfect prescriptions for specific outcomes. But when you’re getting started, avoid analysis paralysis. Go to the gym, pick a piece of cardio equipment, and give it a go. Or hit the gym and follow a circuit.
