Getting fit and healthy on “your own terms” is vital, and will form the foundation to you ultimately being successful for a lifetime with your health. Taking control is vital, and following others blindly never works.
Getting rid of the “clutter” and damaging habits in your life is a good first step.
Things that hold you back every day need to be sorted out, or you will be forever going back and forth sorting them out.
If there’s someone else shopping for you in the household, and filling the house with fast food and junk, then you will always fall down because there will always be fatty and sugary foods in the house, which you’re eventually going to eat no matter what.
Taking control of the shopping is a must if you want to be successful-right now.
Quite often, many individuals try to get fit to impress others quickly and are always fearful of what “others” say about them if they fail or if they succeed.
This is why many go for “quick fixes” on the advice of others such as rapid weight loss shakes and bars, places that change their exercise philosophy every 5 minutes and spend all their efforts and money on advertising, and other gimmicks that have little or no foundation, and usually lead to misery because they always take you back to square and even further back from there due to their total lack of short and long term support.
Research what you should be doing before you start, whether the programme is tailored for you or not, or are you are doing mindless exercises with a “one size fits all” approach?
It’s amazing how many people still regard exercise as something you should be sore every time you do it, you have to take painkillers just to get through it, or even continue when they know they are injured. This attitude and people who practice it never last long in the fitness industry.
You have all the resources to get into shape, and there’s always a pain free, sensible and sustainable way to achieve it.
