With 99 days until summer, now is the perfect time to start working towards your fitness goals. Here's why:
Starting now gives you plenty of time to make progress towards your goals. By giving yourself almost 100 days to work towards your desired weight, you can set realistic goals and make steady progress without feeling like you have to rush to meet a deadline. It's important to be realistic on your weight loss journey. Let's say you want to lose 10lbs before summer starts. If you start now you could lose 1lb a week and reach that goal. If you start in May... reaching that 10lb weight loss goal is probably not going to happen. Set yourself up for success by STARTING NOW!
So, what can you do to get started on your weight loss journey? Here are some tips to help you:
Set realistic goals:
Instead of aiming to lose a large amount of weight quickly, set realistic goals that you can achieve in 99 days. This might mean aiming to lose 1-2 pounds per week, or simply committing to making healthy lifestyle changes.
Make small changes to your diet:
Start by making small changes to your diet, such as swapping out sugary drinks for water or incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your meals. Gradually reducing your calorie intake can help you lose weight without feeling deprived.
Regular exercise is an essential part of any weight loss plan. Aim to exercise for at least 30 minutes per day, whether it’s going for a walk, taking a yoga class, or hitting the gym. Find an exercise routine that you enjoy and stick with it.
Get enough sleep:
Sleep is essential for weight loss and overall health. Aim to get 7-8 hours of sleep per night and establish a regular sleep routine to help you fall asleep and wake up at the same time each day.
It can be easy to lose motivation when you don’t see immediate results. Remember that weight loss is a journey and progress takes time. Celebrate small victories and keep a positive mindset to help you stay motivated.
Set realistic goals, make small changes to your diet, and stick to the plan. You will see results.
