If you truly want to lose weight everyday, you have to make sure you are consistently doing the best with what you have. The first key is applying discipline to your daily activities. I know discipline is not something you typically hear people talk about when discussing losing weight or eating healthy. However if you truly want to be able to lose weight without thinking about it, you have to be consistent with energy burning activities and smart about your food choices.
Exercise everyday, You have to have the discipline to follow through everyday. Your goal should be to do 45 minutes of exercise everyday. If you are too busy to do do 45 minutes of exercise at once, break it down to 15 minutes each, Do 15 minutes in the morning, 15 minutes during your break and 15 minutes at night. What I love most about daily exercise is that when I do it, I feel much more energetic and ready to face the world.
The challenge for me was either not having enough time or not being in the mood or not quite feeling like doing it. How did I overcome this? I reminded myself that sustainable benefits require consistent. When you stop pedaling your bicycle when you are going uphill, you will stat rolling back. When you stop exercising everyday, you will slow down your metabolism and gain more weight.
The second key is confidence. Remember that until you develop enough trust and confidence in the way you consistently lose weight that what others say or think won’t matter. Unless you develop the confidence that comes from successful repeated executions of small daily tasks, you will not take enough consistent action to eliminate unnecessary doubt. Though there are many good ways to lose weight and increase your energy level, what will actually work for you, are the methods and activities that fit into your busy schedule and your personality. This is one of the reasons why going to the gym and doing strenuous exercise works for some people and does not work for others.
That approach does not work for me. This is why I focus on moderate exercises like walking around the house, doing jump ropes and doing push ups. I also try to do my exercise with friends and family. They remind me when I forget and I remind them, when they forget. This way we encourage each other, and when necessary hold each other accountable. Who is holding you accountable? How are you building your confidence and trust in your ability to get things done?
The third key is the ability to forgive yourself and begin again. If you forget to eat your veggies and fruits today, eat them tomorrow. If you were only able to do 20 minutes of exercise today, instead of the 45 minutes you planned today, find out why and make adjustments, so that you can become more consistent. A journey of a thousand miles,begins with one step.
