Don’t be afraid to step up those workouts
Many people make excuses when it comes to exercise, such as not having enough time, or that it would be too hard. This is because they’re focusing on the wrong things. The most important thing is to make sure you’re getting the right amount of exercise and to the right intensity. That way you’re not burning too many calories and ruining your eating plan, and your workout isn’t too easy.
Choose an exercise routine that you enjoy and that challenges you. Then ensure you are increasing your effort levels so keep working hard. A great measure here is the Borg Scale, which is a scale of 1 to 10 judging your effort level (1 being rest and 10 being maximum). Think of a warm-up as being 1-4 out of 10, and your workout is 5-8. then your cool down returning to the lower numbers again.
This will help you to stay motivated and stay on track with your workout goals.
Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone
If you’re serious about losing weight, you need to be willing to step out of your comfort zone. This means that you need to be willing to try new things, like trying a new meal, exercise program, or shopping at a new store. Accessing new information and experiences is one of the most important parts of losing weight. It will help you to stay focused and motivated, especially as it makes it interesting.
When you’re trying something new, you’re likely to get nervous. This is normal, and you need to keep in mind that any progress made will help you to lose weight. You should also try to challenge yourself to do things you haven’t done before so you can create the changes you want.
Take care of yourself: Shower, sleep, and socialise
The last thing you need to do to lose weight and keep it off is to take care of yourself, and this is referring to all of your lifestyle habits. Make sure you’re eating a healthy diet with the right nutrition, drinking enough water, and exercising regularly. But also take the time to meditate and manage your stress levels, get enough quality sleep, and do things you enjoy. Cold showers are also great for the immune system, and socialising has wonderous health benefits, so why not share your journey with a friend?
Above all, try not to get overwhelmed with everything at once. Focus on one thing for 1-2 weeks then build into it. Remember, this is a slow process but very much worth doing if you want to lose weight and keep it off for good.
