Get back in shape - you can do it!

Saturday, September 22, 2007

I know for certain most of people are not really happy with their shape especially those who have quit sports or exercise for few years. This is what happen to me. I quit sport few years ago after I got married. After sometimes, I started to realise that my waist is getting bigger and belly is now like a ballon.
Oh my god! What I have done to myself?
The last time I checked, my waist is now 36 and my weight is 80kg. I use to wear size 31 only and my weight is around 70kg. Several times I plan to start workout but I didn't commit. But after I read the finding in the newspaper, that was the turning point.
  1. Decide. It takes that moment where you can honestly say to yourself, "This is it, I want to make a change."
  2. Commit. Once you connect with the fact that you want to change, you have to commit to the process. You may miss a day of training here and there, or shove a stress donut in your mouth, but the only way for you to get back on track is to recommit. This won't be fun, so you'll have to dig deeper within yourself to create the change you want.
  3. Believe in yourself. Just know that you can do this with good eating and consistent exercise. Results are not just for members of a special club -- they can happen for everyone.
  4. Move. You're going to have to move your body at least 4 to 5 days a week, but not for hours and hours at a time. Just get moving, even if you start out with 15 to 30 minutes a day. As time goes on and you want to see more changes in your body, you'll have to move harder and longer.
  5. Eat right. Watch your portions, eat real food (not out of a bag, can, jar, or microwave), drink lots of water, go easy on the sugar, avoid fast food, and don't eat too much dairy, pasta, bread, white rice, red meat, foods made with flour, or foods with lots of chemicals and preservatives. Easy, right? I know it's tricky, but this is part is really key. What you put in your mouth affects your butt, brain, and mood.
  6. Decompress. Try to manage your stress and make sure you're getting enough sleep. And take a deep breath now and then -- aaaah.
