1. Weigh in
Okay so you want to lose weight and you are determined to reach your goal? Perfect, start out by weighing yourself, taking your waist, stomach, hip, arm, and thigh measurements and think about what you would like at the end of this, aside from weight loss. How about more energy? You can have all this and more when you lose 9 pounds in 2 weeks! Let’s get moving!
2. Revamp Your Pantry
If you open your food pantry and you see a bunch of white flour pasta, chips, cookies and cakes; it is time to revamp! Throw out all temptation and replace with whole grain pasta, quinoa, and homemade granola bars. If you take this step you will be taking a major step towards success! And fill your refrigerator with fruits and vegetables. Learn to love the endless benefits of eating healthy!
3. Get Outdoors
Get off the treadmill and get outside for a run for 6 days this week for 20 minutes to an hour. If you are just starting out you can do just a 20 minute walk so you do not overdo it. Getting outdoors for your workout is more motivating physically and psychologically. It is also much easier to turn off the treadmill and stop your run; when you are outdoors, you have to finish the run to get back home.
4. Set a Schedule for Your Workouts
To achieve success, you have to have a plan in place, so schedule your workouts. Find the time that works best for your schedule and make sure you can stick with it. I find mornings the best time for my workouts because this is the only time I can do this most days, what about you? Find a time that works and stick with it!
5. Plan Meals in Advance
Eating healthy takes a lot of work and planning but it is all well worth it. Prepare brown wild rice and cut up veggies for the week. In a bind, you can always make a healthy stir fry for dinner and with all the prep work done in advance, you will have dinner done in a cinch! How easy is that for slimming down!
6. Get Focused
Do not mindlessly move through your workouts, think about what and why you are doing this! Pushups are a great exercise that works your upper body and core, with focus you can engage your abs and arms to get an even better workout. So do not just go through the motions, get into it!
7. Go Victory Shopping
Now if you followed this 2 week plan and stuck to it, you will be noticing your clothes getting bigger and you will have more energy. So it is time to re-measure, weigh in and go victory shopping to celebrate. No need to break the bank, just one slimmer outfit can ago a long way and the best part is that you earned it!
With these steps to help you lose weight, it is time to get up, get moving and make a difference in your life. You deserve to better your life with these healthy changes!
