Plan your way to fitness
Feeling sluggish after an over-indulgent Christmas? Made a resolution to get healthy this year? Then here’s a simple step by step plan to help get you organised.
I can personally vouch for it! I was feeling low, grumpy, overweight, tired, and demotivated when I created it. After the planning, within 6 weeks I had lost some weight, was feeling happier, and was enjoying some valuable time to myself. I was not the only one to benefit – the rest of the family were able to enjoy a much calmer and contented me (most days!), too.
By following this plan, you can start to take control of your wellbeing and taking positive steps to a healthy new you! So what are you waiting for?
1. Plan your exercise budget.
The very first thing to do. Work out a weekly/monthly budget for exercise/wellbeing. Be realistic! Once you have a figure in mind then you can choose your exercise options are and create your timetable – and don’t forget, group exercise classes are an affordable, fun, and social way of getting and staying fit. You are now ready for Step 2 – Research.
2. Research options in your local area.
Now your aim is to gather as much information as possible about what’s on close by that you might enjoy, so get out there and start researching! Tap into your own personal resource – your friends! If they are enjoying a particular class, or activity, there’s a chance you will, too. Online, Google’s the obvious first port of call, a new site www.classfinder.org.uk is a good one to try, and the sites for mums often have listings for classes. Don’t forget to check out your local gyms, and look out for flyers around your town – in cafe’s, at the library, bookshops, post office and supermarket in your search. Make a list / pile of everything you find in preparation for Step 3 – Listing, which I’ll post later this week…
Good luck and have fun!
