Spring has sprung and summer is just around the corner. Like any normal, warm blooded female you are eyeing your wardrobe and wondering how you’re going to get rid of those few pounds that all the winter warmer food has added. The obvious choice is to start an exercise regime but how do you do that?
The following is a simple guide that will help you get that little kick start you need to shed those extra pounds in time for summer!
Do your research
The first step is to use the internet. It is FULL of plans and articles that will help you achieve your specific fitness or weight loss goal. If you find something that interests you or that you think will work, but there are items that you need to buy to use them, then search for special deals and coupons from Discountrue that will help you save money at the same time! It is of course important for you to have the proper gear necessary for exercising safely and in comfort so look for coupons to make sure that you can afford to get the very best quality fitness apparel and equipment.
Make an appointment
Make the time and set an ironclad appointment. Pick the best time for you to have your workout, and then set an alarm on your phone to remind you about it. Don’t let anything interfere with your scheduled workout. It may seem like you don’t have enough time in your day for exercise but if you use that time to replace a particular habitual activity that is unhealthy or you don’t really enjoy then you can kill two birds with one stone.
Find an activity that you enjoy. Starting a fitness regime is not going to be easy, don’t make it harder on yourself by choosing something that you don’t really like to do. You don’t even have to go to a gym; you can try cycling, walking, and inline skating, join a local sports club, or try home fitness videos. As long as it is something that you LIKE to do and that you won’t dread having to do every day.
Set reasonable goals
Don’t try to start off as though you are an ironman athlete. Start small, maybe five minutes of exercise or one mile of running, walking, or cycling a day. Once you’ve gotten accustomed to that, increase it to 2 miles or ten minutes. If you overdo it you are going to associate exercise with pain and discomfort, it is natural for both your brain and your body to avoid this so it is only going to make it harder to keep up with your regime.
Last but not least, add accountability – share every milestone and goal that you reach with someone! It doesn’t matter if it’s Facebook, your work colleagues or your family. As long as you have someone who is aware of what you’re doing and expects regular updates from you.
