working out is everything
forever young ♥
Instead of coffee with a ton of sugar and creamer in the morning, drink a caffeinated green tea with one pack of Splenda or sweet and low, and a tsp of honey.
Instead of buying Starbucks, buy a smoothie.
Instead of carb filled waffles and pancakes, have an omelet with 2 eggs, fat free cheese and ham with basil and chopped onions.
Instead of drinking soda, try a flavored water, or PowerAde/Gatorade.
Doing some shopping? Don’t look for the closest parking spot. Let your legs get the exercise from parking a fair distance from where you want to be.
Remember: the process on the way your body eats away fats is carbs first, then fat, then protein. So cutting as many carbs out of your diet as possible will help your body get to the fat easier, so you’re not working too hard on working off those extra unnecessary carbs.
Can’t sleep at night? Do sit ups, crunches, squats, and planks to help wear your body out to help you want to sleep.
Never skip a day of working out. 20 minutes is better than nothing. Once you skip a day, you’ll continue to skip more days and you will never see results.
Take a jog outside every now and then. Your body needs the sunshine, and it helps stretch your lung capacity with the hills and terrain rather than just running flat on a treadmill.
Don’t find time to work out. Make time.
Weights are your friend, but know your limit. After a week or so of doing a certain weight, go up 10 pounds. If you feel like it’s still too much, only go up 5 pounds.
If you are working out at a gym, you should be using the same machine for at least 7-10 minutes, not including the in-between time on your reps.
Take it day by day. Results don’t happen overnight. It requires not only working out sufficiently, but also eating healthy. Once you get to where you are happy with your results, don’t forget in order to keep your dream body, you have to work out and eat fairly healthy to maintain it, or else it won’t stay forever.
If it doesn’t hurt, it’s not working.
