How to keep yourself fit

Shedding off the weight is easy, it’s keeping yourself fit that is challenging. Just because you are losing weight using hcg shots , it doesn’t mean you don’t have to keep a balanced diet and a healthy routine. Here are some tips on how you can keep yourself fit:

Eat your breakfast 

Whoever said that breakfast is the most important meal of the day knew what they were saying. Morning meals packed with fiber and low in fat promote weight loss and prevent heart diseases and diabetes.

Keep yourself hydrated 

You are less likely to drink soda and tea when you have a bottle of water handy. Drink a big glass of water upon waking up in the morning, and keep a bottle with you during the rest of the day. Water helps in proper digestion, regulates body temperature, acts as carrier of nutrients throughout the body, keeps blood pressure in check and lubricates the joints and cushions various organs in the body.

Get enough sleep 

 How to keep yourself healthy

When we sleep, our body repairs heart and blood vessels. It also helps balance hormones and plays a vital role in growth and development. Try to get a schedule which lets you sleep during the night by going to bed before 11 p.m. You are more likely to be willing to get up early in the morning to do your morning jog if you have gotten enough sleep the night before. Doing so will help you focus and concentrate more during the day.

 

Reward yourself 

 

After finishing your hardcore workout, give yourself a treat by going to the spa, or getting your nails done in the salon. Use a gentle exfoliating scrub once a week, and use cold water to avoid drying your skin out. Moisturize well after your bath and make exercise and a healthy diet your priority so it becomes a habit.

Have healthy snacks ready 

Munching on healthy snacks will help curb your cravings for junk food. A healthy meal provides the body with vital nutrients which keeps the body functioning properly. Eating healthy snacks regularly helps manage your blood sugar levels.

Don’t beat yourself up 

You’re only human, remember that. Healthy people are those who have found their balance, not those who managed to stick to their diet programs to the letter. If you found yourself munching on a bar of chocolate after a bad day, let your senses enjoy the sweet taste. If you’re worried on the added carbs, you can always lose it after exercising.  Don’t think about how you could have handled the situation and wallow your misery until you get enough sugar in your system to lift up your mood.

Keeping a balance between sweating the extra weight off  (literally!) and rewarding yourself gets you more motivated in achieving your ideal weight. Hold onto a positive outlook to help yourself push through the tough workouts and diets. Good luck and keep smiling!

Choosing a Workout Buddy for You

Choosing a Workout Buddy for You

One way to make your hcg diet more effective is to fortify it adequate exercise. But then again, working out can be pretty tiresome and let’s face it, it’s more challenging to be consistent with your schedules and dieting. One way to solve this is to have a workout buddy to motivate you. But how can you choose a workout buddy which can really motivate you in losing weight, and not succumbing to constant cheat days?

Be polite

It’s a general rule is to be polite to people, all the more to those who you can benefit from. They will motivate you, even pick you up when you feel like giving up on your daily exercise. The least you can do to return their kindness is to be polite with them. Respect their time, and thank them for their efforts.

Share similar goals

If you want your teamwork to work out well, make sure that you and your partner share the same goals. It’s important that your workout buddy is dedicated and consistent, because they will be the ones who who will motivate you and push you through your cravings, the ‘i-don’t-care-i-give-up’ phases and the ‘is-it-not-enough’ phase. Look for someone who will not cave in when you feel like being lazy, and who will instead motivate you to hit the gym, or put down that soda.

Be generous

No one likes a selfish teammate. One way to make your teamwork–partnership, however you want to put it–is that you share what you have. Sharing your fitness knowledge with a gym buddy is more rewarding rather than keeping what you know to yourself. You can trade tips and share new workouts you have discovered. Chances are, he or she will be as generous as you and will be more than willing to accompany you the next time you invite him/her for another round of workouts.

Be understanding

Be honest, there are some days you just don’t want to get up early and hit the gym, or there are times you want to pig out on that burger at your favorite fast food. There are also times when you feel like you may have done too much workout the previous day, and that you can’t bear to even walk. The same thing is true to your workout buddy. It’s easy to tell when the other person is lying. So when you feel like there is a hint of truth when your buddy says “My muscles hurts today.” or “I feel like my legs are gonna give out on me”, don’t be pushy and “motivate” them to hit the gym with you today. Chances are, you would want the same level of understanding from your partner the next time your legs feel numb from yesterday’s treadmill session.

A gym partner is another friend who you share the same goals with–to get fit. While it’s not bad to be enthusiastic and driven, we have to understand that the body gets tired and there are some days you just don’t feel like doing it. Treat your buddy as if you would treat your friend because chances are, they will be more willing to help you if they don’t feel burdened when they are with you.
