As the new year approaches, so do the resolutions for a healthier lifestyle & a smokin’ hot body! But what can we do in the next several months in order to feel and look better for the upcoming beach days?
Do your research.
The body has a strange way of storing and burning fat. There are many books on the subject of losing weight and staying in fat-burning mode through dieting and exercising. But if you haven’t had the time to read fitness literature, it is best to start looking into designing a personalized plan! Ask yourself what works for you! Are you the the type who needs to be at a gym to actually get it done, or can you ignore the presence of your own TV and start using your couch as exercising equipment?
I personally dislike having to get ready and go to a gym, therefore, I work out at home! It’s easy when there are so many programs designed to kick your butt in the comfort of your own home (or anywhere else for that matter).
So far I’ve done P90X3 [twice], completed the 21 Day Fix, and lately I’ve been enjoying the Body Boss program (an exercise book, rather than video recorded workouts). These days there are so many programs you can purchase, it’s kind of hard to choose! If you don’t know where to start, or which program will be best for you, you can now subscribe for Beach Body on demand (includes P90X) and enjoy an abundance of workouts available on your TV to try.
Most of the programs don’t require a very large space or a lot of equipment (nothing you can’t find in the Sports ailes at Target). But more importantly, they are designed to work your body in a way that WILL produce results! Unlike coming up with your own gym routine and doing it over and over until your muscles get so used to it that it seizes to be effective (a mistake I made in high school). I’ve made better progress using these programs than I ever did going to the gym and I’m sure I’d be in an amazing shape if I was more consistent with healthy diets, but I enjoy pizza nights way too much.
The choices are there. Everything you need is a conscious decision to improve your body & mind. Find out what works for you, and enjoy a healhier (& sexier) 2018!!!
