How to incorporate a conducive fitness/health routine into your lifestyle effectively

Most people go a little too hard too early in the process and that typically diminishes or destroys enthusiasm across the board. There IS a way to bring consistent fitness and health consciousness into your life withOUT making the transition as miserable as possible – pace yourself. I hear all the time about how people rip carbohydrates from their diets on a 100-mph journey to lose weight and that’s predominantly due to the miseducation of nutrition but still, it’s more counterproductive than a lot of individuals know. Your body uses carbs for a multitude of things such as energy, optimal function/performance, nourishment etc. so by you bringing down the hammer so heavily, SO early you’re going to extremes that aren’t necessary and likely detrimental to the entire process. Educating yourself past what you read in magazines and/or random chatter from a friend goes a long way in ensuring you’re being as fair with your goals and effective with your methods, as possible.

Baby steps; Out the gate, you might not want to go to the gym 5-6 days a week so don’t try to overload yourself. See how your work/family schedule is going to shape up for the incoming week and plan around that; stimulating fitness consistently is important, don’t get me wrong, but factors like work and family can trump that in certain circumstances. You can begin with a very simple regimen of 3 days a week, Monday through Friday with the weekends off, and test the waters of your comfortability. Feeling confident after a week? Add on a low intensity day or something; Feeling overwhelmingly drained? Scale back slightly. Everyone is different so some people may be able to handle more of a work load than others and that’s why you must get a feel for who you are, what you can handle physically and mentally and then expand from that once an understanding has been established.

Plan ahead; An abundance of my clientele tells me how hectic their days are in terms of responsibilities, so I suggest them anticipating that their busiest days will run concurrent and plan in advance around that crowded 24hrs. If you are 2-3 steps ahead of yourself via packing good quality food, bringing a few water bottles with you etc., it becomes SO much easier for you to perform favorably in improving your fitness and health. A wrench or 2 (surprise meetings, etc.) may be unexpectedly thrown into your operation every now and then but you’ll already be thinking ahead so there’s plenty time to adjust and remain on your itinerary.

These are a few of the examples I’m referring to when I urge you all to pace yourself when pursuing a healthier, fitter way of life. You want to gravitate towards a plan that is centered around longevity AND effectiveness as opposed to just demanding instant gratification at every turn.

This is a marathon ladies and gentlemen, not a sprint. And just like a marathon…breathe, take your time and do it to the best of your ability.
