Have you ever tried to make changes to be healthier, attempted fad diets, or tried traditional exercise? Have you even stuck with it for a considerable time?
Over time, however, you find that you can no longer sustain the level at which you started. Now comes the time to make lasting changes with your diet, routine, fitness regimen, goals, and accountability. This article discusses the steps toward getting on track with a new complete lifestyle routine that will last for your lifetime.
The first step in a healthy lifestyle is diet. Diet does not refer to starvation, but rather, the fuel you consume to produce energy. The key to setting up a healthy and maintainable diet is understanding the foods you are consuming, what they are doing to your body, and what foods your diet may be lacking. The Healthier U Challenge incorporates three diet levels built to take you from where you are now to a cleaner, healthier place. No matter where you fall on the spectrum, whether you follow a strict Paleo diet or are just getting started, the important thing is to take the first step in the right direction. Plan to start on a particular day and go in it with full force.
Starting a new routine will take time, but one of the best ways to commit to a new one is by doing the same thing over and over again, day in and day out. When beginning a new routine, schedule a workout at the same time of day for the near future, plan to eat at a similar time of day at work, and expect to make healthy living a priority.
Starting a new fitness regimen is exciting. New moves, new trainers, and new soreness. Plan your new fitness regimen around workouts that you have never performed, or try to up your new regimen so that you accomplish the prescribed weight each time. While it is important to build variety into your fitness programming, you should stay committed to your workout schedule.
Your new fitness regimen should include fitness progress and tracking. Goal tracking helps keep your focus on the destination. Good programming will build towards that goal. Keep a calendar of each day’s workout and write 1-2 short sentences about that day’s difficulties and accomplishments .
This is probably one of the most important aspects of maintaining your healthy lifestyle. It’s best to have a friend or companion to hold you accountable for each workout, for each rep, and for impeccable form. In addition, using the buddy system means you hold each other accountable on a regular basis, so skipping workouts will be that much harder.
For all of these reasons, the Healthier U Challenge is exactly what you need to make your aspirations for a healthier lifestyle become your reality. You don't have to figure out how to do it on your own. You are in the right place, and the Challenge is a proven program to make you see the results you deserve. It will provide you with the tools, recipes, accountability, motivation, and community that you are looking for.
