“Failure is simply the opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently.” – Henry Ford
This quote has been said in different ways and echoed by many people, and for good reason. When we enter anything the more prepared you are and the more you learn from your previous experiences could be the deciding factor in whether you succeed THIS time.
The New Year has arrived and for many of us it’s our time to begin again more intelligently when it comes to our weight loss journey. How do we do that?
Let’s start with exercise. One of the most important things that you have to know when you’re making your workout plan is to remember it’s your workout plan! Take ownership of it and have a clear understanding of the results you want from it.
You’re initial fitness level will determine things such as your endurance level and your recovery time after your workout. It also gives you a starting point and you will be able to track your progress in a more accurate fashion.
What about your diet? Finding alternatives to unhealthy delights is a key to your diet. The best way to forget about an old treat is to find a new one. If you don’t monitor how many calories you consume it could be beneficial to start tracking what and how much you eat.
One thing to remember is no matter how long your weight loss journey may be the formula remains simple. Burn more calories than you consume. If you keep that in mind with everything you do (and eat) you’ll find yourself happy with the results.
