To exercise or not to exercise? That is the question of the day!
Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate. Exercise to have fun and be healthy, not just to lose weight!
Don’t be afraid of being a beginner at exercising! Any form of movement from one minute to 30 minutes is progress and a small step in the right direction of becoming a healthier, happier you!
You can start yourself out on a “healthier eating” journey, but when you add any type of exercise to that journey you will succeed both mentally and physically a lot faster!
Some of the top excuses NOT to workout are as follows:
I’m too busy
I’m too old
I hate going it alone
It’s so boring
My kids get in the way
I don’t have the money
Exercise makes me eat more
I may injure myself
I’m too fat
I’m thin already
I have arthritis
I don’t like the gym
I’m afraid people are watching and judging me
I don’t want to redo my hair and makeup
Do you admit to any of these excuses listed above? If so, these excuses do not fly and are not valid!
Keep yourself motivated!
Take it one day at a time
Surround yourself with positivity
Create a dream board
Ask yourself what you want, and make realistic goals accordingly
Reward yourself (but not with food!)
Believe in yourself – you can do this!
Acknowledge your attributes
Recognize your progress
Visualize accomplishing your goals
Celebrate every pound lost
Be kind to yourself
Focus on how you feel, not the scale and most importantly – don’t compare yourself to others!
Find exercise that you like to do! Start out slow and gradually increase your time and activities! Any type of movement to your body is better than NO movement at all!
Start today! Why wait another day? Get your body moving and start your health happiness journey today! Because you need too, because you want too!
