There’s no soft and fluffy way of saying this, but losing weight and improving the physical condition can’t be done easily. There will be difficulty with slow progress, feeling like you are stuck in a pointless routine and feelings of deprivation when you say bye to some of your favorite indulgences.
While there are plenty of ways to face these problems and a personalized trainer or gym buddy can provide plenty of support and encouragement, there is another path to take that has been found very effective. This is making your health and fitness routines a part of your recreation and leisure.
Olympian Katie Uhlaender, an American skeleton racer, says that you can make your efforts towards greater health more entertaining by engaging in sports or activities you actually enjoy.
Fishing, dancing, tennis, long distance running, biking, and basketball are all terrific ways of keeping fit, shedding pounds and staving off disease and poor health.
If you are thinking of taking up a fun and engaging activity that will help propel you towards your health and fitness goals, where do you begin?
So, you’re interested in the idea of embracing a new sport or activity in place of your typical workout routine. Where do you start? The last thing you want to do is focus on the problem. Thinking “I want to lose X pounds” or “I need to beat my wife in a marathon” is not a good way to begin. Redoubling efforts by committing to a crash diet and some pills is another bad idea. That is a formula for needing to hire a personal injury lawyer.
Instead, think about making a positive choice to change your life. From today on you are the person that spends 60 minutes each day doing something you love. Even better, it is a healthy and invigorating activity. Start with what you can do and begin to enjoy this experience into exploring your physical fitness in an intuitive way.
