Starting a New Years Fitness Plan!

Starting a Fitness Routine For The New Year

In our modern society, it is hard to eat healthy food options on a regular basis. In addition, few people get enough exercise throughout the day. If someone sits at a desk throughout the day, getting enough exercise is critical. There are numerous studies that show the negative impact of sitting throughout the day.

Starting a fitness routine is not easy. You have to break bad habits and focus on areas that you can improve in the future. However, the end of a year is always a good time to assess your health and fitness goals. Once you make a plan, start following a program in order to have success with your fitness. Try going vegan! 

Take Measurements

The starting point for any fitness change should be taking measurements of your body. Some people wrongly just weight themselves and track how much weight they lose over time. This is the wrong approach to take. Instead, you should measure key areas of your body. Your waist size is a critical measure showing whether you are healthy or not. As a general rule, a smaller waist size correlates with a lower risk of heart disease.

Exercise Tips


One mistake that many people make with a new program is exercising too hard in the beginning. Exercising too hard can cause numerous issues in your body. Not only is it going to make you tired, but it also increases your overall risk of developing an injury. There are many people who have developed an injury after starting a new lifting routine. Theresa creates a fitness plan for readers! 

You should start by exercising only a few days per week at first. Once your body is accustomed to lifting heavy weights, you can start to increase the frequency of your gym visits. You should do both strength training and cardio work. Over time, this is the best combination to improve your fitness and look great at the same time.

Changing Your Diet

The food you eat is the biggest factor in whether you will have success with your new fitness goals. Some people wrongly assume that they can exercise enough to burn off bad calories. This is simply the wrong approach to take if you want to have success.

Eating healthy and natural food choices will make a positive impact on your health. Not only will it increase your energy levels, but you will have more mental clarity as well. Body fat will decrease over a long period of time if you stick to an exercise program and eat healthy food options. Not only that, but you will also build muscle throughout the body. This is one of the best ways to prevent a disease from occurring in the body when you are older. Some people have to deal with bones breaking at a young age because they do not exercise enough.

Prepared Meals

One of the most difficult aspects of living a healthy lifestyle is taking the time to cook healthy meals. There are many companies that supply prepared meals and ship them to your door. Although these food options are limited, it is still a great way to eat healthy food options throughout the month.

Many people try these meals on a small basis at first. Once they know how the process works, they will order meals based on their needs during the month. For example, a person may order enough food to have these options for dinner throughout an entire month.

Nutrisystem is one of the most well-known companies in this industry for men. For many years, customers have relied on this company to deliver quality food to their door.

Staying Motivated


If you want to stay motivated, you should only weigh yourself once per week. Some people make the mistake of weighing themselves too frequently. When this happens, you can get discouraged if you are not getting the results you want.

If you follow a strict eating program, you will lose fat over a long period of time. Our weight tends to fluctuate each day based on the types of food that we eat. If you have a salty meal, your body will store more water and will temporarily increase your weight on the scale.
