5 Tips to Get Fit QuickPosted on March 18, 2015 at 12:53 am
Okay I have a confession to make.
This post is kind of satirical. I knew that the title/picture would lure people in, especially since bathing suit season is upon us. But the truth is, there is no real QUICK way to get fit.
Being fit is about living a healthy lifestyle. It’s about dedication. Patience. Persistence. You’re not going to wake up in 2 weeks with your “dream body.” Especially if you’re half-assing your way through your workouts and making crappy eating choices.
Sorry not sorry….sometimes you just gotta tell it like it is.
As a trainer and as someone who lives a fit and healthy life, it is so frustrating to hear people say that “it’s too hard” or “too much work” ….are you kidding me? Get over yourself and be grateful that you have the ability/opportunity to workout and eat heathy foods.
You have one body to take care of and you better do just that. How you treat your body (your workouts, what you put in it, the rest you give it, etc) is a reflection of how it’s going to treat you.
So listen up babes…it’s time to buck up and WORK for it.
And because I don’t want to leave y’all hanging, I really will give you 5 tips for getting fit…just not quick ones (;
Like I said, you’re not going to wake up in 2 or 3 weeks and be exactly where you want to be. You’ve got to push past the first few weeks (and even months) until you’ve taught yourself healthy habits. The work will pay off – but that’s they key…you’re going to have to WORK for the payoff.
2. Stop cheating yourself. And stop making excuses.
If you’re gonna do a workout – do a workout. If you’re gonna eat healthy – eat healthy. You’re either all in or you’re not. Results come from hard work, not half work.
3. Surround yourself with supporters and encouragers.
Sometimes going at it alone proves to be too much for people. And that’s okay! That’s why we have friends and family. To encourage us and support us. Make sure that you’re surrounding yourself with people who lift you up instead of bring you down.
4. Drink more water. And while you’re at it…eat more veggies.
Just do it.
5. Be realistic.
You know what you have time for. You know how hard you can push yourself. You know that it took you a long time to get to the point that you’re at now, and it’s not going to reverse itself overnight. Set REAL goals that are attainable. Then put your heart into chasing those goals.
Hope you don’t mind the little bit of sass that I was feeling today (;
