Where To Begin?
You must remember that change doesn’t happen overnight and it does involve a lot of dedication and hard work. But if you are ready to start living a healthier and happier life then there are a few steps you can incorporate.
Set A Goal - What are you looking to achieve? Take some time to understand what goal you are wanting to reach and write it down. It is best to set some short term and long term goals which help you break it down to the final hurdle.
Have A Plan - You should have a plan as to when you will workout throughout the week and also what to stock in your pantry. Having a plan is a great way to map out your meal and exercise plans throughout the week. It should help you be more organised and less stressed when trying to understand what to eat for lunch on Tuesday or what to train this evening.
Find A Buddy/Friend - Having a friend who is interested in working out and eating healthily is another step towards making your lifestyle change more sustainable. It will ensure that your workouts are a little more fun when training with a friend and they can assist you in the gym too. Your friend can also help with food choices too, and can help you say ‘no’ to that chocolate cake in the shop window.
