I want to get fit, where do I start ?
The first step is establish your starting point by doing the following;
- record your body weight
- take circumstance measurements
- take infamous before and after photos
By seeing your starting pictures, weight and measurements it will inspire you to take action, once you are up & running watch your body take shape and numbers dropping can be equally rewarding to see your progress.
I strongly recommend to have start and end date with a specific occasion, this creates an emotional goal and give you something to aim and keep you accountable
Without a clear start and end date you will struggle to stay motivated and ultimately achieve your goals
Once you have establish your starting point and set out your goals you want to achieve. It recommended that you look at doing the following;
- write a daily food diary
- start doing 30 to 60 min of cardio 2 to 3 times a week
- start doing resistance training 2 to 3 times a week
- drink more water and get at least 7 to 8 hours sleep daily
Resistance training forces your muscles to work against resistance research shows that resistance training is best form of training for fat loss & getting the best possible results
Getting 30 minutes of cardio 2 to 3 times a week will help to get your body into a calorie deficient or between 230 to 300 cals to help you to get closer to your goals
Drinking more water will help you to stop snacking or junk foods and keep you feeling fuller for longer.
Sleep is important for recovery and help to suppress your appetite hormones and stop you eating junk foods or mindless eating when you don't need to.
Don't let the above overwhelm you, the best way to start is set yourself a goal get a good coach and stay consistent and determined.
