If you are like most people you probably want to get back in shape, but just do not have the "time" to do so. The truth is that it does not require much time at all. Maybe you do not have the money to join a gym. This is also something that can be overcome with ease.
All you have to do is start doing is more than you already do now.You can start off just doing stretches everyday. This will have a tremendous impact on the way you feel on a daily basis. Just start the day out with some basic stretches (simple warm up stretches you learned in school) and you will see what I mean.
You probably do not think about it but you lose weight simply participating in your favorite activities like dancing, basketball, soccer, bike riding, catch etc.
You do not have to so much cut back on the 'amounts' of food you take in, but more so the 'kinds' of foods you take in. For example, you can have a subway sandwich instead of a burger with fries. Mainly you want to stay away from foods that are fried as well as sodas. Go with the cleaner choices, and make sure you're getting fruits and vegetables in there also.
It may be hard to change over at first, but speaking from experience, after a week or so of eating cleaner foods you will have NO desire for those unhealthy choices. If you're an energy drinker, go with the sugar free versions. If you follow the 90/10 Rule, you will see results.
With that said, you should make sure you're drinking your 8 glasses of water each day. This is essential in order for the body to function correctly, which helps the body burn more calories.
Last but not least, START TODAY! Do not wait for a set date in the future to start making smart choices about your health. Procrastination is the number one cause of failure. Be persistent and be successful!
