Make up your mind
It is just a question of making up your mind. Once that is done, you are halfway through.
Make fitness a reason
Both physical and psychological fitness are of utmost importance in life. You have to be mentally fit to perform physical duties and vice- versa. Our attitude towards life is affected by our fitness level. Make fitness a reason to live a happy and active life.
If I do not have the time to go to the gym, I work out at home or go for cycling. Balancing out is the key. Whatever you do, you have to balance it out always. If you eat a cupcake, you run a few extra miles.
Those last few months…
There were days when I just lazed around, but there was this voice in my head which kept saying ‘focus, get up and work out’. Also, like everyone I ate home-cooked food during the lockdown.
Variety is the key
Cardio exercises like running and cycling are the best. Yoga is also good. Drink a lot of water to flush out toxins. I do not believe in the concept of a beach-perfect body. Be happy with your body. Fitness is not about having a perfectly shaped body.
Diet should not mean ‘skipping meals, eating less or not eating carbs or sweets.’ In fact, it should be about eating right, taking a healthy amount of food and eating carbs in moderation. A good diet can help you lead an active and healthy life. Go for a balanced diet.
Aye for cheat meals
I do binge once in a while. I love having pizzas though I go for a thin crust with more vegetables. I also like eating chicken. I feel it is a good source of protein and hence keeps you fuller for a longer time.
Focus on your goal. Keep a dress you want to fit into as a source of motivation. It is going to push you towards your goal. Remember, you just need to make up your mind and keep up the determination.
Be goal-oriented and not excuse-oriented!
