We all want to look like that supermodel in the magazine but we want to be able to eat like the fattest person alive. Obviously, these simply do not go together so in order for us to come to terms with what we want our bodies to look like we must also come to terms with what we allow ourselves to eat. It is really all about changing our mindset and allowing your brain to take charge. You must reprogram your brain, however, to understand that in order to have an amazing body you must be committed to a healthy diet and plenty of exercise.
After reading the part about exercise you probably groaned a little bit. I don’t know what it is about people and exercise but there are a lot of fun things you can do that will get your heart beating and help you burn calories. There is no reason to be afraid of exercise or to consider it as something negative. The easiest thing to do is to simply reprogram your mind that exercise is not bad, hard, boring, or difficult to do. It is instead fun, invigorating, and is the key to helping you get that body you want. When you accept these things and really make the changes you need to make then you will begin enjoying exercise and you will look forward to exercising every day.
But, the good news is you do not have to hit the gym for two hours a day in order to be healthy. Nor do you need to exercise every single day. As long as you exercise as least half an hour three times a week then you will be doing great. You will find that as you start incorporating these workouts into your weekly schedule you’ll start to really enjoy them more and will continue going to the gym and possibly increase the amount of time and effort you devote to exercising simply because you have come to enjoy it.
While you are enjoying your new exercise routine you have probably gained a new appreciation for healthy foods. Eating healthy is really important because it gives your body the nutrients it needs to stay healthy not to mention it makes losing weight much easier. You will notice that when you work out on a regular basis you will be less likely to cheat on your diet because you know how much work goes into burning off a Snickers bar or a box of chocolates.
All of these attitude changes come back to reprogramming your mind. Sure, you won’t be able to reprogram your mind in a day. But, you can reprogram your mind in as little as a few weeks. So, go ahead and start making the changes you need to make. Put your mind in control of your weight loss and exercise and allow yourself the opportunity to finally be healthy and have the body of your dreams. The truth of the matter is that you have a choice between feeling and looking great or feeling and looking awful, make that conscious choice to be healthy and fit, you won’t regret it, that I guaranty.
After you have been doing these new things for about a month they will come naturally to you. You will not need to be reminded to drink plenty of water or to get active because it will be part of your day just like brushing your teeth or putting on your glasses or even cooking dinner. Creating a new habit is not that difficult. It simply requires a dedication on your part and a commitment. After that, everything will fall into place on its own and you will wind up healthier and fitter than ever with a better body image. And that is certainly worth a commitment to a new lifestyle.
