Counting calories and adding exercise into your routine can be overwhelming. There are many ways to make sure that you are moving toward living a healthier life. It is possible to live a healthy life without missing out on your favorite foods and activities.
Track Your Fitness Goals
Keeping track of your fitness goals can help you stay on track. You can use a daily planner to keep up with your progress. You can keep track of the number of glasses of water you drink each day and your activity level. You may also want to keep a record of the foods that you are eating. Keeping track of your goals will help you see which efforts are contributing to your success. If you notice that you are meeting goals more quickly after starting a new exercise routine, for example, then you will definitely want to continue with the new routine.
Prepare Meals Beforehand
Food is often an obstacle toward a healthier lifestyle. Try to keep a healthy meal prepared so that you do not feel tempted to indulge in unhealthy snacks. Having lettuce, boiled eggs and turkey on hand will help you make a healthy salad without having to make a trip to the grocery store or spend time in front of an oven. You may want to prepare meals in advance so that you will have healthy food ready when you are too busy to cook. Try to purchase snacks that provide protein and are low in calories.
Treadmills and elliptical machines are great for burning calories, but being outdoors can be a fun way to add adventure to your fitness routine. Consider jogging through a local park or going for a swim at a neighborhood pool. You may also want to join friends for a soccer game or a round of Frisbee golf. Participating in fun activities may help you burn calories before you even realize that you are doing so. Ordering sunscreen in bulk can help you prepare for a whole summer of outdoor fitness activities.
Tracking your progress, preparing healthy food and spending extra time being active can help you achieve your goals. Once you have an established routine, you will be surprised at how easy it can be to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
This is the continuation of my other post about the new work-out hub we found and loving it. As I have described on my previous post, it has offered different exercising machines to use for free, it has a big open space for jogging and walking, also a free Zumba class. After a tiring hours of doing the exercises and you got hungry, there a lot of food stalls to eat breakfast or lunch.
And if you are a plant lover, there are stores for different varieties of plants, decorative home plants, vegetables and fruit-bearing trees to choose from, organic fruits and veggies and other preserves is also available, which the husband really liked as he is into urban farming at home.
For a little fun, there’s a zipline for the adventurous and playground for kids, also a fish spa for only 60 pesos (sad it was not yet open when we were there, I really wanna try it, hmm maybe next time), almost everything is there except maybe a fender showmaster for guitars, oh well maybe or maybe not, who knows. 🙂
This year, I’m not only doing Zumba as my exercise to keep me fit, we also found a new hub where not only me but the whole family can work-out together. My son and daughter-in-law invited us to join them in their Monday routine jogging at Q.C. Memorial Circle, I’m glad the husband was also persuaded to join as he has this habit of waking up late, lol, this time he woke up at 4am so we can prepare for the 5am event and he needed the work-out most for his own health. And I think he enjoyed it too.. 🙂
I was surprised that the place is now equipped with different exercising tools that are free and open to all who wanted to use them, there is also a free Zumba class going on you can join, it was located in a shaded area with blazing music powered by a multimedia speaker cr4 so you can hear the sound even at a far distance. The place was teeming with early joggers and health conscious people even on weekdays where it usually is a workday for the working class.

Music to clear your mind of negative things to create a happy and healthy body for yourself. When we are depressed or pressured with work or problems, our body suffers. We can’t eat and sleep properly, thus it affects our health and the people we love as intend to be irritable and unreachable, we don’t wanna talk to anyone. For this there are ways we can avoid these things. In one quiet and comfortable place, meditate, get a headphone if you don’t want to get distracted and listen to your favorite songs or music (a jazz music from mellophone is one of my favorites and it works real good to me). Think about the problems, face it and don’t from run it, find the solutions and as your mind clears you’ll see that is not as hard as you thought it was. And even if there are no solutions in sight yet, you can deal with it in a very positive way, it’s your choice.
