Start to plan your health goals today. You can feel better, you can look better, and you might be around longer.
When you are setting weight loss goals, exercise usually has to be part of that plan. If you are anything like me, exercise is not something you view as fun. The nice thing is that it doesn’t have to be all that boring.
You should realize the right state of mind is important when you are seeking weight loss goals. Prepare yourself mentally. Then do it. Here is an exercise regimen that could help anyone lose some weight, it helped me too.
The first couple of weeks are very important. You don’t want to over extend yourself to the point that you are sore and you don’t want to exercise anymore. You should find that right area. Start doing your cardio for 20 – 30 minutes a day. Do this for the first three weeks or so. Once you have been through the first three weeks you should be able to increase your time to 40 – 50 minutes a day.
You are probably wondering where the excitement might come from. You are probably wondering what is going to keep this program from getting boring. Let’s face it; the change in scenery will come from changing your cardio type and finding exciting places to do it. Try jogging for a couple of weeks and then try swimming for the next couple. You could then change it up to some type of sprint routine or a brisk bike ride in the evening.
There are plenty of things you can do to help with the boredom that sometimes comes with exercise. You could find a lake to jog around or even a mountain trail to hike if you live near the mountains. What if you try walking around the mall or you could bike ride to work if you are close enough. Get out to the park or find a local high school track to run on. Get a partner that will keep you motivated. I have used many of these to keep me going in my program. They definitely help. As you can see there are many things to keep your cardio program alive as long as you are willing to find it.
The idea is to mix it up. By mixing your cardio routine up a bit, it will decrease the boredom that you may face with exercise. Finding a partner to motivate you and for you to keep motivated helps you maintain reliability. You now have to think of someone else. Use these tools. Use them and get fit. Enjoy your path to good health.
Always consult a physician before starting an exercise regimen.
