There are times when know we need to do something different. Fitness is no different. It’s one of those things that we know deep down inside we need to change. How often do you hear someone say “I need to get in shape”, or “I need to eat better”. It’s something we all know deep within.
So how do we take those feelings of needing to lose weight or gain muscle, and eat better, and actually start to makes steps towards a goal? It takes a decision. It’s one day deciding that you are not going to just talk about it anymore, but you are going to actually start making changes. Now another thing you have to come to terms with is your “why”. Why do you want to….fill in the blank.” If you don’t have a well thought out reason of why you want to get healthier then you are setting yourself up for failure.
So first you make the decision. Then know your why. The last thing you have to do is make a plan. You can’t just go blindly into this hoping that by simply wanting to change, you will change. You have to begin to make changes every day. Choose to go to the gym, choose to eat better, choose to make a better start to today. Get to the gym or get outside and start moving, every day, figure out a time that works, and stick to it every day. Grab a huge garbage back and start throwing away all the junk food in your house, all the sodas, candy, sweets, dump it and get it out of your life.
Every day start adding in one more healthy item, one more healthy habit. You don’t have to have it all together from day one, but you’ve got to get out there and start doing.
