This is one of the most important parts of the whole process, finding your motivation. To do this we recommend making a list of pros and cons of both your body and starting a new, healthier lifestyle.
The most important thing about this step is to know what is driving you to make this new change and most important of all, to know that you are changing for the better for yourself, not to please others but because it is something that is good for you and why you want to do it.
Without commitment we go nowhere, this is fundamental. There are no miracles, so if you want something, you will have to make an effort, nobody gives us things for free.
To start this change, it is essential that you commit yourself to all the steps and be constant and persistent. There will be days when you don’t feel like doing anything, or you may want to skip something in order to start the change, but we advise you to re-read the list of pros and cons and visualise your goals.
Remember, you are doing this because you want to and you know it will be beneficial to you.
FIND WHAT SUITS YOU BEST
You don’t need to restrict yourself from foods you love. We advise you to see a specialist and tell them about your goals. If not, you can read a lot of food advice on the internet and look for the foods that best suit you, your body and your goals.
It is important to plan ahead. To do this you can create a weekly or even monthly menu where you put the meals you are going to eat according to the previously established in the previous step, and do not skip it!
You can also plan your weekly activities, be it exercise or personal time. A relaxing bath or even two a week… why not? You will have to indulge yourself from time to time.
Go to the gym or even do sport at home, it doesn’t matter, the important thing is that we find the workout that matches your goals. To do this you can read our post Lose weight by exercising at home or Advantages of doing sport at home.
This is a fundamental part of the process, finding the exercises that best suit you and your goals. This part has to be seen as a key element of our process of change.
Drinking water on a regular basis is essential in our daily lives, but even more so if we are going to start exercising on a regular basis as our body loses a large amount of mineral salts.
Isotonic drinks are recommended for those who have established an intense and long-lasting exercise plan. However, people whose exercise plan is characterised by light or short duration are recommended to drink plain water.
Rest is essential. In order to be able to perform well in your day-to-day life, you need to sleep as well as possible. For this, it is necessary that you have a suitable mattress that adapts to your body, a comfortable pillow and a light-free space. In addition, it is important that you get the number of hours of rest that corresponds to your age, in the case of adults between 7 and 9 hours.
Did you know that a good rest eliminates negative feelings and affections and allows you to recover both physical and mental strength to be able to perform optimally in your work?
ELIMINATES FAST FOOD
If you are one of those people who don’t like fast food… you’re in luck, because this is the most complicated step for fast food lovers. But yes, we don’t want to eat this kind of food when our goal is to be healthier…
It’s time to change habits, so start snacking healthily with almonds or fruit or even smoothies to satisfy the craving for fast food.
This type of change does not happen instantly… you have to wait. Your body has to adapt, which is why it is not advisable to expect to do high-intensity sport from day one.
And last but not least: enjoy! Remember that you are doing this solely and exclusively for you. It is a change that you will be grateful for and you will start to feel better about yourself, but it is useless if you do not enjoy the process of change. Therefore, if you are one of those people who have little willpower and who consider that you are going to have a bad time, we recommend that you start this change accompanied, either with a friend, a family member or an acquaintance, but the important thing is that you do it all while enjoying yourself.
