Making fitness a lifestyle choice requires planning, commitment and
flexibility. Plan and have your workout clothes, food and water ready to
go. Be prepared so there is no reason for you to miss a workout. Living
a healthy lifestyle is a choice. Remove the excuses. Here are a few
suggestions to help you succeed and have fun, too.
Pack your workout bag the night before. All you need for your workout is
already packed and ready to go. Keep it in your car so you can be
flexible if something changes in your work or family schedule.
Eat well. Plan your meals or snacks so you have good energy for your
workout and throughout the day. Remember to bring a water bottle and
refill it to stay hydrated. Have a snack ready for after your workout.
Know the healthy choices that work for your diet and stick to it.
Educating yourself will give you the knowledge to make wise food
choices. Take a nutrition seminar at The Alaska Club or make an
appointment with a nutritionist. Your body is a machine and needs the
right fuel to function at its peak.
Get the family involved with meal planning and workouts. Bring the kids
to the Play Center while you workout or make it a family event. Play a
game of basketball, swim or walk the track. Play time counts too. With a
little planning and lots of action, you are sure to succeed.
