The first thing to do is get your mindset right. You can write all the shopping lists, buy all the workout clothes, but if you’re heart is not fully set on making lifestyle changes, it likely won’t work. It’s good to have a goal, but just doing it for an event or to impress somebody means outside factors affect your progress.
Despite what I said above, once your mind is set on getting fitter, stylish workout clothes can be a great boost to your confidence when going to the gym.
I’ve still eaten some junk food, I’ve still been out for food, but at home, I’ve made some small changes.
I have less carbs and have focused on eating better food at regular times.
I’ve also been having smaller portions, which feels normal within a couple of days.
Meal planning has been the biggest game changer, because I know what I’m having each day and don’t have the after-work worry of wondering what to eat.
I don’t always have a chance to go to the gym, so like to find other ways to exercise.
Break Up Goal.
Some of us have quite high hopes for our fitness and goals can be overwhelming. It’s worth breaking up into smaller pieces to make your goal more manageable.
For example, if you want to lose a certain amount of weight in a year, work out how much that is monthly, and work towards the smaller goal each month instead.
On the MISFIT Shine 2, there is a setting to make it vibrate when you haven’t moved for a while, which is so useful because I really get in the zone when working. You don’t have to wear it as a wristwatch as the face pops out which is super handy, and something else I love is not having to charge it, which I would definitely forget to do. The replaceable battery lasts 6 months.
