You don’t have to wait for someone to send you flowers or candy, you can be your own valentine and give yourself a special present of good health. Of course, even if you have a special someone who already gave you a fabulous gift, it shouldn’t stop you from doing something special for yourself and maybe give the same gift to that special person. The gift of good health comes in the form of an exercise program and healthy eating.
Change your habits, change your life.
If you live a sedentary lifestyle, you’ll see the most change from this special treat. You’ll replace your aching back with a loads of energy. You’ll shed pounds quickly and see your body become more trim and fit with muscle tissue replacing fat. Best of all, the more muscle tissue you build, the easier it will be to lose weight. That’s because muscle tissue requires more calories for maintenance than fat does. Effectively, you’ll be boosting your metabolism.
Have fun while you’re getting fitter.
I love kickboxing for a number of reasons. It’s engaging and challenging, while also providing a great workout. It’s a good form of self-protection and can be effective no matter what your size. Kickboxing keeps you mentally focused, trying to predict the next move of your opponent, so it’s mentally stimulating. Best of all, it’s loads of fun and you barely notice the time whizzing by while you’re getting a total body workout.
Eat healthier to get in shape faster.
Many of the foods you eat are out of habit. In fact, many people notice that once they taste how delicious healthy foods are and kick their present eating habits, they simply can’t go back to eating junk foods again. Healthy foods are foods closest to their natural state with minimum processing. Here in Chino Hills, we have loads of places to find those foods at inexpensive prices. There are a number of farmers’ markets and farm stores where you’ll find them freshly picked that day. When you give yourself the gift of healthy eating, you’ll find you take pounds off quickly and they never return.
Don’t forget to hydrate. Water is an elixir that can’t be matched for hydrating and good health. You don’t have to be rich to drink plenty of water and you’ll get some amazing results. Drinking more water can actually help you lose weight.
You’ll sleep better at night when you workout. A good night’s sleep is not only a gift, it’s a blessing for some people.
Strong and fit is the new sexy. You’ll get admiring looks as you get your body in the shape you know it should be.
You’ll even improve at work. When you exercise regularly, it stimulates the brain and improves cognitive thinking. That’s one reason many companies offer fitness programs for their executives.
