Find the Right New Year's Resolution to Get into Your Best Shape Ever!
Five easy resolutions to make you lean in 2005!
Yep, it is that time of year again! Time to moan and groan about the weight
we gained over the holidays as we resolve to lose it all in the New Year! If
memories of failed New Year's resolutions are haunting you, it is time you
found the right resolution for 2005.
The reason that most New Year's Resolutions fail is that they are too
extreme or time consuming. Who is really going to give up all sweets or
stick to sweating in the gym for hours each day? What you need this year is
a New Year's Resolution that is simple enough to become a part of your daily
life, and will lead to long term weight loss. Read on for five simple yet
effective New Year's Resolutions for you to choose from.
Resolution #1: Drink a large glass of water before each meal.
This simple action will save you mountains of calories in the coming year!
By filling your stomach with water right before you eat you reduce your
chances of overeating during the meal. Drinking more water is also healthy
for all of your body functions, including converting body fat into usable
Resolution #2: Wait 20 minutes before deciding on seconds.
Do you remember the last time you were uncomfortably full after a meal?
Chances are that you were hungry and, rather than stopping when you were
satisfied, you overate. In the same way that your body tells you when you
are hungry, it also has a way of telling you when you are full. The catch is
that it takes about 20 minutes for your brain to get the message from your
stomach that you have eaten enough. What you eat during that 20 minutes is
extra food that your body doesn't need. Next time that you are in the middle
of a meal contemplating getting yourself seconds, allow 20 minutes to pass
before you decided if you still need the extra food. Chances are that your
brain will get the "full" message and you will pass on the extra calories!
Resolution #3: Walk or Jog in the morning.
Did you know that going on a 15 minutes walk right after waking contributes
to weight loss? Getting out of bed 15 minutes earlier, lacing up your tennis
shoes, and simply walking around the block will lead to fat burn and lost
pounds! When you get up and move first thing in the morning, before
breakfast, your body is more likely to used stored fat as energy. Weight
loss is supposed to be harder than this, right?
Resolution #4: Obey the No Food Three Hours Before Bed Rule.
Eating a snack after dinner is a widely held habit. Although food always
seems to taste better right before bed, it is also more prone to stick with
you when eaten late at night. It has been proven that not eating three hours
before bed reduces fat storage throughout the night. If you go to bed at
10pm, finish eating for the day no later than 7pm. Once you have made this a
habit you will be ecstatic over the long-term weight loss!
Resolution #5: Spice up you Workouts with Circuit Training.
Are your workouts consisting of the same exercises in the same order at the
same weight? If you find yourself falling into a rut at the gym give circuit
training a try. Start by doing one set of your first exercise and then
moving on to do one set of your second exercise. After you have done every
exercise once, start again from the top! If you want to burn extra calories
add 5 minutes on a bike between each set. Get creative and add new exercises
into your circuits, and your workouts will be fun and energizing!
Now all you have to do is pick one of these New Year's Resolutions, make it
a part of your daily life, and watch as the pounds fall off in 2005!
