Health Fitness tips for the New Year. A healthy diet starts from the inside.
After going through several medical procedures last year, I was determined to get in better shape. In March my Husband purchased a high end treadmill for me. Every morning I begin walking on my treadmill. I initially started at a slow speed and shorter time duration. Each week I increased my speed and incline and time. I’m especially happy to say that I now walk 30 minutes four to five days a week at a good pace. Walking at a good pace has increased my energy. Additionally, I’m in better cardiovascular shape.
In the Summer I begun personal training at Fitness Together. What I love about Fitness Together is the personal training. Having to make an appointment to work out keeps me on schedule. With the walking and personal training sessions I’ve started to see a difference in my body. With the start of the New Year I hope to increase my sessions to twice a week. If you don’t have time to go to the gym there are many activities that can be done throughout the week. Remember, a healthy outside starts from the inside. Some of the things you can do to increase your activity level are:
- Take the stairs instead of the elevator
- Take a walk on your lunch hour
- Participate in a physical activity
- Buy a workout DVD
- Buy some exercise equipment for home usage
Health Fitness requires a change in daily habits. Inserting new habits into your every day life will make you look and feel better.
Remember diet isn’t a short term thing – it is a life style change. Obviously, losing weight is a long term commitment. Accordingly you should set short term goals and realize it isn’t going to happen overnight.
Being healthy and Fit isn’t a trend or fad but a life style change.
In conclusion, remember to take one day at a time and be the best you for the new year.
As always, I welcome your comments.
