SO! We are well in to January and every day the TV, papers, radio and newspaper have a different diet, a different exercise routine with a different celeb – and in mid Jan we start to get the tv series and/or book to go along with it, far be it from me to be a little cynical but, is it obviously a massive money making exercise?
Well as an advocate of ‘if it works for you” then there is no problem, however you can spend an awful lot of your hard earned pennies trying to find what does work for you, and the larger companies know this.
Yes this is the time of year when we look at our lives and we really, really want to get fitter, to feel better and look healthy, we may have an aim of walking a distance or training for a marathon , targets are individual, but they must be achievable or we will be ‘set to fail’ before we have started.
BASIC GUIDE….. Only change TWO things a week, and make it simple…..one diet item and one fitness.
EG – if you smoke, simply cut down by one cigarette per week and go for a 15 minute brisk walk
If you take sugar in tea or coffee – cut it down gradually by 1/4 spoon per week and do 10 standing squats per day
The above are only simple examples, but it is how we work at LESU with clients, WHY? Because it works, it is gradual, we change slowly so the body does not feel deprived or that it is working too hard.
Obviously we all have various fitness levels and goals, so each change will vary person to person.
You can get started today by writing your own fitness/diet diary, before we make any changes we have to monitor and record what we do, this way it is controlled and you are in charge, get a small note book, carry it with you for a week, write at the front all of your food including drinks, at the back make a not of your exercise, how far you walk, stairs done, any physical activity as well as any exercise
After a week you can then start to make 2 changes per week
After 5 weeks do another weekly diary
After 10 weeks do it again
Now turn to the front pages and notice the difference!!
