New Year’s Resolutions are very popular, but it seems that they are often difficult to carry through and, at some time around February, one finds they have readopted their old habits. This is especially true when it comes to exercise and healthy eating. But the truth is, any changes one makes do not have to be so dramatic. As well, it is important –vis-à-vis exercise – to find something that is not boring.
Suggestions for Getting Fit
So here are a few suggestions for ways to get fit. Check out the different Workout DVD’s available such as Jari Love’s Extremely Ripped Boot Camp DVD for $14.99. This is perfect for those who never feel as if they have enough time. In fact, any DVD is good for that as it can be done at home. This one offers six 10-minute workouts exercising abs and cardio and using weights. In addition there are two 30-minute workouts and an even longer one that spans for 18 music tracks. Or, if you just want to focus on cardio or abs, that is another option. This DVD certainly will not leave you bored.
For those who feel the need to get out, walk more. You do not necessarily have to spend the money to sign up for a gym membership if you don’t want to spend the money. Just take every opportunity to walk, put on a pedometer and see how many steps you clock up each day. Also, find a friend to team up with for fitness so you can encourage each other.
Eating healthily does not necessarily mean cutting out all the good, fun treats. A bit of modification is needed. Ensure the house is stocked with fruit and vegetables – for those who despise raw vegetables, make soups instead. When going out to dinner, choose healthier options like fish rather than pasta and either just have a bite of dessert or order a coffee to finish off your meal. There are many – easy – ways to introduce healthier eating habits into your life.
So don’t make a New Year’s Resolution, just make 2012 the year that you will be getting as healthy as possible.
