I’m fascinated that so many people, when complaining about weight again, use not having a gym membership as an excuse. Here’s the thing! You don’t need to join a gym to exercise. I will admit to being more focused at times when I gym though, but if you can’t afford it, feel uncomfortable, then here are some links especially for you.
You can still exercise and look good without a gym membership. Eating correctly and regular exercise is a great way to boost your confidence levels.
But first, remember to get your nutrition on point. The 80/20 rule applies. 80% nutrition/20%exercise.
There are numerous workouts online that don’t cost more than an internet connection a little dedication.
Here are two links that are helpful.
Blogilates : Online and at home, Cassey has tons of free pilates workouts. When I first started my fitness journey, I did her 5 min ab workout – it was crazy how she busted me. But it didn’t cost a cent. The great part is you can do a target area workout by choosing the area you wish to focus on, or a complete body workout. Everyone can find at least 5 minutes a day – so no excuses.
SpoteBi : Awesome 4 week Body Sculpting workout. For the middle aged ladies complaining about the muffin top and bye bye arms – these are easy peasy. (There are a lot of different plans on this site, so do visit).
On nutrition, I am deadset against diets. The word diet seems to set people up for failure. I much prefer people thinking about a lifestyle change. Making nutritional choices as part of your lifestyle. Diets are in mind for a set time frame, whereas choosing a lifestyle is a long term investment in your overall wellness. Eating clean, less processed, less junk.
I follow the Weighless lifestyle, which I will admit I did battle with initially as I do not have a huge appetite. However, what I did learn is that I wasn’t feeding my body enough food to have it perform as I needed it to.
Alternatively, investing in an eating planned designed especially for you around your likes and dislikes by a Nutritionist is also worth considering.
