5 Tips To Hit Your Goal Weight
Can you believe it’s already March? We hope 2016 is off to a great start for you. Now’s a perfect time to check in with your New Year’s resolutions. One of the most-popular resolutions is to lose weight — something that many of our members when their pair great nutrition, adequate sleep, and a regular workout routine in our clubs.
Take a good look at yourself and be honest: Are your hitting your marks? Or is it time to refocus on hitting your goal weight? If you’re leaning towards the latter, the following tips are for you. They are small actions to consider when you’re at home, in the gym, and out and about. We know staying committed to a healthy lifestyle can be tough, but these five recommendations will make it easier for you to stay focused on hitting the healthy number on the scale.
This is huge! Consider what you eat during a “normal” day. If fast food comes up as one of your meals, that’s not doing you any favors. Portion control and solid nutrient intake are crucial for good nutrition, even more so for people looking to lose weight. If you aren’t sure what a healthy daily calorie intake is for your goals, meet with one of our staff members to get started.
Drop the alcohol.
You don’t need the extra calories! Water with fruit slices is a fun and easy replacement for your nightly drink. Best of all? It pairs well with any meal.
Add fat-burning cardio.
Keep your metabolism rolling with easy cardio after you wake up! We recommend a 30-minute run before eating breakfast. This may be a big change for your daily routine, but once your body adjusts to it, you’ll feel more awake and poised for the day.
Make sure you’re eating enough.
Depending on how intense your workouts are and how often you’re working out, you may need to eat more to keep your metabolism high. Again, our staff members are happy to go over your nutritional needs with you at the club!
Don’t fall into old habits.
You know what the triggers are. Don’t cheat yourself during your hard work! Going out to dinner with friends or happy hours with coworkers can be dangerous, but hold yourself accountable and make the healthy choices. Remember what you are working towards and know that it will all pay off!
