  • Back to School and Time to set those Weight Loss Goals

    By Travis Steffen on Tuesday, September 8, 2009in Help & Motivation  

    4imagesIt’s that time of year again…time to re-visit those weight loss goals. Back-to-school time signifies a time of new experiences, fresh starts, and organization. It’s a second chance at that New Years resolution you made to get in shape and lose the last 5 pounds. With a few simple changes and additions to your daily exercise routine, you can still achieve your goal before the ball drops.

    1) Set realistic weight loss goals
    Don’t expect to lose 10 pounds in a weekend. That’s a definite set up for failure. Set an attainable goal of 1-2 pounds a week through sensible nutrition and regular workout routines.

    2) Eat a healthy breakfast
    Ignite your mind and metabolism with a satisfying combination of whole grains and lean protein.

    3) Plan your meals
    Make a plan for meals a few days or even a week in advance. Without a good plan you could easily find yourself plugging quarters into the vending machine at that 3pm crash.

    4) Join a gym
    Take advantage of the deals that most gyms offer at this time of year and make an honest commitment to working out.

    5) Take action
    Don’t want for motivation to get you moving. Action inspires motivation, so just get up and do it.

    Setting and adhering to specific goals is a surefire way to success. September is another chance at a new beginning, so take advantage of it.
