Whether you want to start toning your body, lose weight or just become healthier in general, here are a few examples of how to jumpstart your new life through healthy diets, lifestyle changes and fun ways to exercise.
If you want to lose weight, but you love to eat
Losing weight isn’t as easy as it seems and the older you get, the harder it is to shed off those extra pounds you accumulated through the years. The first order of the day is to start eating right, as exercise only works if paired with a good diet. If you have the budget for it, and no time to cook, try a food delivery service that specializes in diet food. These days, there are so many to choose from! One example is The Sexy Chef, which offers meal delivery for several types of diets such as The South Beach Diet, Sugar Buster Diet and even for the HCG Diet. For those who prefer to eat the same food as the rest of the family, and would like to make becoming healthy a joint affair, you can subscribe to The Bon Appetit Diet via www.belletoday.com.ph. This diet’s main concern is the pleasure of eating and does not remove any food groups from your diet. You will still be eating your favorite comfort food and yes, even rice. It won’t interfere with your regular schedule, as you will be making all meals yourself as you usually do. BelleToday is an online community of people who, just like you, would like to start making better food choices for themselves and their families.
If you want to start working out but get easily bored
Although the biggest work out trend right now is running, not everyone can stay in the zone and love to do it all the time. For these same people, gyms are usually out of the question as they find it just as boring. Instead of forcing yourself to follow what everyone else is doing, find alternatives that will make you more excited to work out. One can be through Pole Dancing, a work out that is becoming increasingly popular for those who would like to lose weight and become long and lean. Don’t think these are just women hanging from a pole as a lot of upper body strength is required when doing their lifts. Take a class with the Pole Cats in their Ortigas studio and see if it’s your thing. Another option for a more interesting work out that is fast and efficient (you won’t need to spend hours there) is Plana Forma, a combination of yoga, Pilates and dance that defines your abs, works out your thighs and arms to give you a long and lean physique. For those who love to dance, Zumba might be the thing for you. This Latin-inspired fitness dance “party” will help you work up a sweat while having fun.
If you regularly work out but want to push yourself more
For those who regularly run or go to the gym, but feel like their regular work outs are no longer doing the job, you may want to try more high intensity work outs such as CrossFit, a work out that was original used to train policemen, army men and athletes. This kind of exercise mixes everything from running, gymnastics to kettlebells and Parkour to work your body to its full potential. If you want to work out more at home to not skip any while on vacation or when you get to busy to go to the gym, invest in TRX equipment. This suspension training uses your own body weight to enable hundreds of exercises that will work out every part of your body.
