The list which always a few things or a lot of things, but the list I’m speaking of is one I had to at once (years ago) toss. However in the past several day I have heard people in conversation with a list, I do believe is longer than they are tall.
Now about that list, it’s a list of excuses to working out and with your complaint on your nutrition why you cannot change it. I really love to encourage and motivate people should THEY WANT to change. Yep you have to want change to begin the process. If you keep adding to your list of excuses instead of finding a way to decrease or toss that list well…….. well………well…..
Okay well I’m just inclined to believe you are not ready for a change. Nope you’re not but I’m one to raise my hand to motivate you and help you remove some of those excuses. Of course this does not mean to make drastic changes because it’s necessary to be realistic and making changes you can be dedicated to with phases of progression to your goals/intentions (your preference)
Do you have a long list or have you joined the reduction list with me and so many others? Come on join us, we welcome you.
I’m getting this question from co-workers, friends well no need to give a list because it is the question of concern. Where Do I Start.
There is no correct or incorrect way to begin a fitness program. If you know of no health issues or feel safe to be examine by your PCP do so, however that may be difficult with the current COVID situation if so settle for telehealth (virtual MD visit). Hopefully this will erase your concerns or erase the “excuse”. If you need to see the MD for an excuse knowing you are healthy then yeah, you’re not ready to begin any fitness journey. You must want to change before making the change.
Where do you start if all is well, ask yourself
A. What is my current fitness level. You already know if you’re active or not.
Am I ready to go harder or stay at the same pace. Newbies don’t over do it because you will either push through the muscle soreness or quit.
B. What am I looking for muscle strengthen, muscle building, cardio, barre, dance, boxing or all of it. You have to know what you want and you will progress to all of it but first know what you feel comfortable with. Remember whatever is your choice you can always modify.
C. Are you a gym person (now that most are re-opened), or all you a streaming person as I am. There are many streaming workouts but the one I use is too awesome. There are multiple trainers and a calendar to follow with each program. I’m uncertain what other streaming work outs have to offer. But if you are looking for a team, a calendar workout with a multitude of choices leave me a comment and let’s chat.
D. Make a decision and just start, jump in you will be welcomed wherever you begin.
E. Don’t forget you may have to adjust the nutrition, again don’t start making drastic changes.
