If you want to achieve anything in life, you simply do it. It can start by creating a goal, followed by a plan of action. Once that’s done, you have to stick to that plan. In other words, you either make excuses or make it happen. The problem with weight loss and fitness goals is that they don’t happen overnight. They take time to achieve. Enthusiasm wanes as time goes on, so each day without results makes it harder to stay the course.
You need to find ways to make it easier to stick to your plan.
There are many different tricks to help you keep focused on your goal. You can put sticky notes with messages to yourself around the house. You can visualize yourself achieving your goal. If you feel like skipping your workout, weigh the benefit of skipping it to the negative effects of skipping. In most cases, people decide that the positives of exercise far outweighs the negatives of not exercising. Some people simply get dressed for working out, without making that decision to go. Once they’re dressed, it’s easier to convince yourself to stick with the program.
Do you really have a slow metabolism that you can’t do anything about?
While you might have a slow metabolism, there’s no reason you can’t boost it. Exercise helps do that. When you do strength training, it can increase your metabolism for up to 48 hours after you finish. Strength training also builds muscle tissue. Muscle tissue requires more calories to maintain than fat tissue does, so the more you have, the more calories you burn 24/7. That means you’ve boosted your metabolism. Rather than sitting and feeling sorry for yourself, do something about it. Kick start your metabolism with exercise.
You could say you’re too busy to workout or boost your energy by working out get things done faster.
There’s no doubt about it, these are busy times for everyone. Having enough time to workout is often one of the excuses people give as reasons they can’t get into shape. What they don’t realize is that the more they workout, the more energy they have and the quicker they get things done. In fact, studies show that people who exercise regularly improve their cognitive functions, so their concentration and focus improve, making mental work go quicker, too.
