Do You Wake Up to go For A Jog Each Morning?
You have sat down and decided to shed off 10 pounds, take a minute to evaluate your preferences. Do you wake up to go for your jog each morning at 6a.m, even when the weather seems like it can make your nose become frost? Or do you quiver at just the thought of waking up from your comfort zone? Your personal preferences and approach towards exercising and working out will determine what you ought to do to lose weight.
For instance, if most of your days are spent sitting on a couch and filling in crossword puzzles or reading a magazine or murder mystery, while you may not necessarily pass for a ‘couch potato’ you will pass for an inactive person. Therefore, the first step towards shedding 10 pounds is to realize and evaluate such facts.
How Do You Wish To Exercise?
The second step is making a decision on how you wish to exercise, which forms a critical part of any viable weight loss plan out there. While going to the gym might be the first thing that comes to mind, there are a host of other choices, particularly considering the fact that the gym may not necessarily be convenient and to some extent comfortable for you.
Note that some options may call for some bit of creativity, although the end results are worth the effort. For example, if you drive to the grocery store regularly or to the farmer’s market and it is just located at a walking distance, you can decide to park the car and walk the distance. Simply walking a few miles makes a world of a difference.
Park The Car A Few Blocks Away From Work
The other alternative can be at work. Perhaps your job place is located near where you park your car, or near where you alight from the bus. Why not park the car a few blocks before and walk the remaining distance or similarly alight at a stage or two before and walk towards the office.
At home, do you sit and do a lot of nothing as you wait for some food to unfreeze in the microwave? A convenient way to move your muscles at home is to prepare a wholesome meal from the very beginning as this will need you to move around a lot and as a result exercise in the process.
Make Some Lifestyle Changes and Lose Those Pounds
Because television is a known obstacle to exercising, and because many people cannot just get enough of the TV, why not put on your favorite TV program or video and watch it as you do your aerobics? Your choices and preferences may mean you getting a home gym made up of a treadmill, exercise bike, abdominal exerciser, and boxing gear. These alternatives give you the chance to exercise at the comfort of your home and at your own privacy. However, you should only buy equipment you are certain you will use.
It all boils down to making lifestyle changes that you can be able to accommodate and stick to as a lifelong routine. Within no time, the ‘exercise’ will be more or less your second nature, and the process of shedding of those 10 pounds will be very light and fulfilling.
