OK, now be honest when you answer this:

How many times have you gone to sleep at night, swearing you’ll go to the gym in the morning, and then changing your mind just eight hours later because when you get up, you

don’t feel like exercising?

While this can happen to the best of us, it doesn’t mean you should drop the ball altogether when it comes to staying fit and building a healthy body for life. This can happen to even the most seasoned athletes, most toned bodybuilders, most dedicated fitness enthusiasts. The fact is, we are all human and there are days that we just may not be feeling 100% inclined to working out.

While scheduling in pre-planned rest days in any fitness program is a great idea, there is a fine line between resting your body and running from your commitment to exercise. If you notice that your “rest days” are taking up most of your time, you may be in need of a little fitness “pick-me-up” or motivation. Now the bad news is that motivation has to come from within you. You need to somehow spark that flame inside that convinces you to drag your little sedentary behind to the gym. The good news? You, more than anyone knows what motivates you! You just have to find out what that motivational source is! Maybe it’s your kids, your wife, fitting into your pre-pregnancy skinny jeans, completing a marathon, wearing a string bikini and being proud of what you see in the mirror. Whatever it is, use it to your advantage.

Place objects, pictures, clothing, magazine articles or anything that reminds you of your jmotivation and goals where you will see it often. I had one person tell me that she really wanted to lose the belly fat she accumulated after giving birth to her son that she loved more than anything in the world. Sure enough, a couple months down the road she looked great and much more toned. I asked her what her motivation was and she just chuckled.

She explained to me that she would feel so guilty for not going to the gym sometimes that she would just give up, go to the fridge, and eat something sweet since she had “messed up already”. She did this until one day she ran across a store selling “knick knacks” and household items. And right in the window was a magnet that made her laugh-AND realize that she didn’t have to give up the war for one battle lost. The magnet had a picture of a female hippopotamus eating chocolate, and read, “A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips!” Needless to say she started laughing and bought the magnet right away. She placed the magnet on her fridge to remind her of her goals and of the consequences of her actions. From that day on she said every time she saw the magnet she would get her running shoes on!

So, what motivates you? Sit down and reflect on your life, your fitness goals, and where you are on your journey to achieving your body for life. And while external reminders such as pictures-or magnets-can help motivate you, it is the INTERNAL changes you feel that make your efforts all worth while!

So you’re overweight, “fat”-to be honest-and you want to start exercising. Before you take off like an overlarge airplane and start preparing for the Olympics trials, stop right there. You may have it all figured out by now, after checking with your friends, the media and finally that fickle fiend known as the bathroom mirror, that a regular exercise program is the only way to fly when it comes to permanent weight loss. That entails working out or otherwise flexing your physical and psychological muscles on a regular basis, perhaps three times a week, or maybe even once per day. But therein lies the rub. How do you get started? How often do you exercise? Most importantly, if you’ve been very sedate or at least somewhat off your feet for awhile, what’s the safest way to begin an effective, weight-loss centered exercise program to achieve your ideal body for life?

First of all, follow the old saw about consulting with your doctor. Don’t start thinking you can just begin

running around the block. That’s why the medical profession exists, to advise and keep you safe. Your doctor will recommend specific types of exercise tailored to fit your own individual lifestyle, personal health needs and concerns to safely achieve a healthy body for life. But you don’t need to make it entirely clinical when you begin an exercise program. Most importantly, you need to pick something you’re going to stick with. What do you like in the way of sports? If you’re people-oriented, you should look into joining a team sports program of some kind in your area, one created for adult participation. You can look for a local softball league, take a beginning aerobics class at a fitness center, or play regular games of basketball at a gym with your buddies. And then there’s golf, the perennial favorite of people who want to perform fun and interesting mild exercise. All you have to do is motivate yourself and perhaps some friends to get started. Or if you’re a loner, you can take up an individualized sport such as bicycle touring, which can also be done in small groups, or laps swimming at your community pool. But be realistic, and work with your doctor. You want to aim for something fun that you’ll keep committed to doing regularly.

Simply walking around the block is a very inexpensive and potentially fun way to go from a sedentary state to a beginning new level of much better health and fitness. You must start with something easy and simple if you haven’t been exercising for decades, and you should gradually increase your level of activity as you feel comfortable with it. Move by inches, not by miles. Eventually, you can try exercising every single day, anywhere from twenty minutes to a full hour. But especially at first-and that may be for several months-don’t push yourself too hard. Don’t go all out, and get frustrated because you can’t keep it up. You don’t have to be a college athlete, and you can seriously hurt yourself by pushing too hard or overdoing it. Remember, you’re doing this for fun, for health reasons and to feel good about yourself. Don’t try to become an “athlete” unless you think that will be something you’ll want to commit to on a much more rigorous schedule.

Americans tend to think of exercise as more their duty than as a part of their culture, or “way of life.” But

it’s a true lifestyle preference. Throughout the world, many forms of regular exercise are taking hold of whole general populations. Take walking, for example. In Europe, people are flocking to their local well-developed public hiking trails, and there’s quite a few of those spread across the USA as well. Walking of a moderate type is called Volkssport in Europe, and it’s really been around for many centuries. Easy-going exercise such as walking continues to stave off heart disease, osteoporosis, high cholesterol and many types of cancer, as well as taking care of most of your belly flab. Not to mention that the worst investment you need to make is a pair of comfy, sturdy sensible shoes, preferably made of leather or canvas with rubber soles.

You must also remember to keep it simple when you’re losing weight. In most cases, burning more calories than you ingest is the biggest concern. You have to expend approximately 3,500 calories to lose one pound of adipose fat tissue. Water weight doesn’t count, and that’s what a lot of people lose at first. Also, the important thing about exercise is that you can eat almost normally and still lose the weight at a healthy and reasonable pace. If you don’t exercise and try to lose weight, you’ll be tempted to embark on a starvation diet. This has been shown to make you lose lean muscle mass instead of fat in most cases, and although you’ll drop some pounds, they may be the wrongest ones. Chances are that if you’re unfit while you’re losing weight, you’ll get physically tired, sleep less, become overly emotional, and stress out and become extremely irritable. It simply isn’t healthy to do it that way, so you need at least a moderate exercise program.

Try keeping a journal of your progress every day, and consult with it when you want to know how far along you’ve come. You can also use it to gauge how you’re doing, and whether or not you’re losing weight at a reasonable pace. Congratulate yourself every time you ate the right thing, kept to your walking schedule, or didn’t give in to temptation that day by making a brief note about it. Read the journal to inspire you about what you’re doing whenever you feel the urge to let go. Don’t forget to share any successes or failures with your friends and family. Tell them all about how proud you are of the new lifestyle choices you’re making, and share in their enthusiasm. They want you to be healthy and go on living, and so do you. But some of them may worry that you’re starving yourself or are in a state of denial. Reassure them, and proceed carefully with your healthy diet and exercise plans, while always knowing that it’s exactly what you need to do to look better, feel stronger and live longer.

Congrats on making the decision to change; now take charge and move forward with your plans to reach your goals!

Demanding careers, financial worries,raising a family coupled with pressures of daily life is sometimes  daunting and

can take a major toll on both women and men alike. Exercising or following a daily workout routine of 30 minutes is sometimes the last thing on our minds these days. This poses a problem and is most definitely a problem that can be resolved since despite all these pressures, we still manage to find time to watch TV or hang out with friends.

We can come up with hordes of reason for not hitting the gym or going out for a run. Being fit should be a part and priority in everyone’s life, but the truth of the matter is, for most Americans, it’s not-and this needs to change. Being physically fit helps you live a longer, more fulfilling life. It means more than looking your best on the beach or finishing first in the marathon. It means lowering the risk of heart disease, stroke, depression, diabetes, insomnia, cardiovascular disease, asthma, obesity and hundreds of other problems associated with a sedentary lifestyle and taking care of your body for life.

By keeping yourself physically fit, your body learns to deal with the stresses of daily life. Incorporate going to the gym as a daily habit like brushing your teeth or taking a shower. Devote at least a good 30 minutes to an hour for exercise to make you look and feel fitter, healthier and happier. Besides helping reduce the risk of devloping life-threatening diseases, regular exercise increases flexibility to maintain muscular tension and tones muscles to build and maintain healthy bones and a strong heart.

If you decide to put off going to gym, you will miss out on the benefits mentioned above and much more. 30 minutes to an hour of physical fitness is major health investment and a step towards taking care of your body for life. If this is your first step in the fitness world, get in touch with gyms or personal trainers to see which fitness plan suits you the best. You will also come across adverts with promises of keeping you in the best of shape. Learn to differentiate between what is real and the hundreds of gimmicks out there. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

After you decide on your fitness plan, you have to start working on the same to stay in shape and keep fit. Don’t go overboard on the first day as you might feel very exhausted or burned out. To reach your ideal level of fitness, be sincere, consistent and stick with the program. Remember, consistency is key.
