Are you dreaming of getting in the best shape in your life? Stop dreaming and start doing! I’m here with my tips to help you. By creating a low stress environment, eating low calorie food and exercising, you will be in the best shape in your life! Below the list of 7 sure fire ways to get in the best shape of your life.
1. Just do it!
Stop lying in your bed planning the exercises you want to do and get up out of bed to do it. We often create strict diet and fitness plans, many of which we don’t follow through with. It’s important to create a realistic plan that you will definitely stick with.
2. Prepare your meals in advance
It’s not an easy task, but if you prepare your meals in advance, you’ll stick to your eating plan. If you have the ingredients ready for your meals, it will make your day easier. I always make my fulfilling and healthy salad for lunch early in the morning so I don’t have to worry about it at noon. Prepare in advance and you will always be on track!
3. Exercise 4-5 days per week
You may say that you have a busy schedule and you don’t have enough time to exercise, but why not get up early to get your exercise in at the start of the day? When you exercise 4-5 days per week for about 45 minutes, you burn 700 calories per day. Keep in mind that your healthy diet combined with your workout routine will yield 1-2 pounds per week.
4. Mix up your workout routine
Many people are tired of doing the same workout programs that’s why they just give up. Try to find a fitness program that will challenge you. And keep in mind that with hard work comes great reward. I’m sure you’ve heard about the sayings ‘Nothing good comes easy,’ so get working and you will be in the best shape of your life!
5. Combine strength and cardio
By combining cardio training for 45 minutes to about 1 hour with strength training, you will reduce body fat and develop lean muscle. This can also help to increase your metabolism so that you’ll burn much more calories during the day.
6. Weight training
Weight training will help you build muscle and burn more calories throughout the day. So don’t be afraid to lift weights, you won’t bulk up. Depending on the particular exercise and a number of repetitions, I usually lift 5 or 10 pound dumbbells. You can try it too!
7. Wear the clothes that flatter your figure
There’s nothing that can motivate me to work out more than knowing that I can wear a nice dress and feel better about myself. Your hard earned results will make you feel more confident. Just be sure to wear the clothes that flatter your perfect figure!
There you have it! All of the great ways to get in the best shape of your life! So get up and get moving! What do you think about these ways? Share your thoughts, please!
