For all of you out there trying to lose weight or just trying to lead a healthier lifestyle, here are a few simple tips to help you get started!
1) Changing the little things in your life will result in the biggest improvements.
–Drink lots of water! It’ll help boost your metabolism, and make you feel fuller before meals. I try to carry a water bottle with me at all times so I’m constantly sipping on water.
-Instead of drinking juice, you might as well eat the actual fruit so you get the vitamins without the bad sugars! Also, cut the soda out of your diet! It does nothing good for you.
-When eating sandwiches, toss one side of the bread (1 serving is 1 slice!)
-THIS AMAZING APP! It’s called Fooducate, and it lets you track your meals throughout the day. It does all the calorie calculations for you and helps you stay on track!
2) The hardest part about going to the gym…is GOING to the gym!
-When you’re looking for parking, park far away so you can get in that brief walk to the store
– Go on hikes, walks, even walking around at the zoo or aquarium counts! If your destination is within a walking distance, forget the car! Motivate yourself by getting a workout buddy!
–Excercise. Try to fit in a trip to the gym every week. Listening to music or reading magazines help distract you from the workout.
3) TREAT YOURSELF!
– Once a week, indulge in your favorite treat, hard work comes with its benefits!
REMEMBER, losing weight does NOT happen overnight. It’s okay if you cheat! Everybody makes mistakes, but realizing your error is what sets you apart and keeps you on track for improvement!•
