We all love having time off over Christmas and New Year, and we can see this an opportunity for a new start, perhaps your New Year’s resolution was to lose weight or get fitter. So we invest our time and money into gym memberships and in our time off work we turn into fitness gurus. But what happens when we have to go back to work? Our priorities are no longer in losing weight but turn back to our careers.
Perhaps you’ve worked so hard to maintain your weight loss goal. The last thing you want to do is regain the weight that you’ve spent so much time and effort trying to lose. Before you know it, it can become an obsession. But don’t let weight loss takeover you life. Most people have very busy lifestyles and find it hard to fit in a routine exercise, and if your finding this hard then there are a number of things that you can do to add exercise into your daily routine.
Firstly you could start using your lunch breaks and go for a walk. You’d be surprised how much you could benefit from regular small doses of exercise. Figure out a few different routes, and take a different one each day, perhaps incorporate stair climbing, for those bad weather days.
Why not try cycling to work instead of driving or try walking if you don’t like that far away, a ten minute walk will help as long as it is hard enough to get you slightly out of breath.
If you’re based at home, plan your week so you can get of the house regularly; take a few trips to the shops every week. Look at way in which you can be more active around the home. Invest in some home gym equipment such as a Treadmill, Cross Trainer, or Vibration Plate.
If your day doesn’t let you incorporate exercise, then set your alarm for half an hour before you usually do. This will allow you time to go for a brisk walk before you go to work, if you know that there’s no way you can fit exercise in before work re consider how you could spend your time on an evening. Most of us spend a lot of time watching T.V so why not purchase a piece of home gym equipment and work out while you’re doing it.
Schedule your next exercise session, write it down, and also record what you did in your work out, so you can keep track of your achievements.
We all know how busy our life’s can be but making the smallest changes can really help us to improve and maintain healthier happier lifestyle.
