Whether you have gone through a point in your life that left you feeling a bit heavier, or have always wanted to lose the extra weight but keep postponing it or simply just want to fit into a wedding dress in a month’s time, the time to take control of your health and feel better about yourself is always now.
The journey towards a healthier lifestyle can be a daunting one to some, but fortunately, we provide tips that will help you get started in earnest.
Your first step begins here.
- Only do exercise routines that you enjoy.
Exercises should make you feel good and not create a sense of dread. As a beginner, it certainly pays to only perform those exercises that you feel comfortable with as you build more stamina with each passing day.
- Avoid Daily Weigh Ins
Do not put too much pressure on yourself by expecting drastic drops in the scale after only just beginning. Often, the first changes begin to become clear after the first week. Daily weigh ins may discourage you.
- Give into what your stomach wants
Often with beginner exercisers, more hunger pains will strike you. Do not ignore them as it might leave you too tired to exercise. However, your diet needs to be limited to recommended foods only.
- Appreciate the progress made!
Finally, learn to look in the mirror and give that guy a compliment. Remember that a higher self-esteem begins with yourself and set your eyes on the target, and appreciate the journey.
