Happy New Year!
So, here we are at a the beginning of a new year. I hear LOTS of talk of weight loss, “getting in shape”, and dieting.
As a personal trainer here in San Jose, I kind of cringe inside when I hear people say they’re….
-starting a diet tomorrow
-totally eliminating 17 things from their diet and never eating them again
– that they’re going to go the gym every single day of the week.
Wow. Those kinds of activities are hard to maintain over the long haul!
Will this lead to fast weight loss? Yeah, perhaps.
Will it be easy? Probably not. Might be downright miserable.
Here’s my take: You can do it fast. Or you can do it easy. You can’t have both at the same time.
I’d like to suggest a different approach because I don’t think that the “all or nothing” approach works for most people over the long haul.
And lasting results are what we truly want, right?
Sure, there will be temporary results from “dieting”. But the “diet” stops at some point. After the diet stops, well, eventually you’ll be back where you started.
Or worse off.
I suggest you push the “easy” button. Now, what I’m about to suggest might not be easy every day, but it will be something that won’t turn your life upside down. It will be something you can live with. It will likely create lasting change for you.
I’ve recorded a short (less than 4 minutes!) video to give you my tips for how to approach your health and fitness goals for 2018. Whether your goal is weight loss, to be in less pain, to improve your overall health or even to complete a road race (5k, 10k, etc.) , my suggestion will help you get there.
I suggest you take what we at lifeSport Fitness call the lifestyle approach.
Listen in here……
Let’s make 2018 your best year yet with regard to your health and fitness!
