Fitness & Feel Good Foods – Tips to Maximize Weight Loss & Love It!
I agree – the title of this article is - should we say annoyingly positive! But honestly, even if working out is not your forte, it doesn’t mean you have to suffer; It’s quite the contrary, actually. If you find yourself searching for excuses to avoid workouts then you are most likely like 99% of the world – don’t feel bad, you’re not alone! Our mind can play really nasty tricks on us, allowing us to eat foods we know aren’t good for us, overeating or giving up on our fitness goals, the list is vast. Below are some tips on how to beat the mental block and find ways to maximize your weight loss while feeling great about it!
Don’t Burn Out On Boring Workouts
Find ways to keep your workout fun. When we become bored - which for some of us is very quickly, we tend to completely give up verses finding a solution. Remember that wellness comes from actually doing something different than what you’re doing now. If you never do anything nothing can change! If you want inspiration, you’ll have to find it and a good place to start is by checking out FitFusion. This online fitness forum takes boring workouts and tosses them in the trash! Whether you like Pilates, Yoga or even intense cardio, you’ll find it here. With over 75+ hours of workout videos, boredom will take a back seat! If you want something to push your limits but still be fun and entertaining, I suggest Cassey Ho’s Pilates. This video will make you laugh, build endurance and keep you losing inches! And of course, when you’re done – dive into something delectable to pat yourself on the back! Try this Peanut Butter Moose Cheesecake – unlike regular cheesecake, its vegan and offers a far healthier option.
Go ALL In
No, I’m not talking about poker; I’m talking about making a commitment and sticking to it. After all you deserve it, now you just have to work for it! If you want to push yourself farther then you ever have, try Jillian Michaels One Week Shred. This workout will have you losing an incredible amount of weight in no time flat. Sure it will be painful, but it’s the most fun you’ll have preparing for the beaches of Mexico this summer. Just remember, each drop of sweat represents that iron clad dedication and keep moving! For something a little less intense or for beginners, the Tone it Up Girls One Day Fat Blast Complete is a great option. These ladies will teach you to listen to your body, and help you get the physic you crave.
Optimal wellness comes from staying with your desire to work hard. Whether it’s in your living room following along with one of the great workouts on FitFusion, or selecting better food options – you can become healthy and happy! Remember, aside from a few sore muscles, you don’t have to suffer. Reward yourself often and never give up! For awesome workouts that give results try FitFusion for free here.
