I hate diet plans but I love lifestyle plans

Tell me if any of these statements ring a bell “I just started a new diet”, “No dessert for me I am on diet” or “I am on a meal program and I can only eat certain things” Fact is we have all either heard them or said a variation of them many times. WHY?

Well, if you are like me you look down one day and say “Has my gut always stuck out that far?” Then you start a process to correct the situation. Most of us latch on to the last fad diet or maybe something your favourite superstar is promoting…I ask you again WHY? After all the first 3 letters of diet spell “die.” My weight and physical fitness level have gone up and down so many times it is impossible to count.

I am guessing you are reading this post for one of the following reasons:
1. You are a friend of mine and you want to support “Rolling Motivation” (which I really do appreciate)
2. You are bored and there is nothing good on T.V ( it’s o.k I understand)
3. You are or always have struggled with your weight and fitness.
4. You are always looking for ideas on how to improve every aspect of your life and you might find something you can add or adjust in your routine.

 As you know Rolling Motivation is growing and will continue to, as long as I and those who support me, consistently foster that growth. My business, my brand and my ability to help others; grows because Rolling Motivation is ME, is not just a casual “thing” that I am screwing around with. Posting on my website, putting videos together, sending tweets, updating Facebook posts and all the stuff that I do are more then a habit, they are part of my life..they are my lifestyle!
Exercising, Eating Healthy, must be designed as part of your LIFESTYLE, because if we have to force ourselves to do anything, it is either not going to get done or we’ll hate the process. So you NEED to make the healthy choices fun, easy so they happen automatically.

ExerciseI personally go to the gym 3 to 4 days a week. You don’t have to join a gym, I find it better to have a place to go that gets me up and out of my house early so I get a good start to my day. You may find it easier to workout at home or outside; whatever gets you working out consistently is great! 🙂 I have found the best way to stay consistent is design a program that is 25 to 45 minutes 3 times a week, it’s short, focused and can be done before work, on your lunch break or night preferably before dinner so you don’t eat late.   FoodEat more fruits and vegetables, find some you like, make them the alternative to chips and cookies. Also drink lots of water. Be warned if you aren’t accustomed to drinking lots of water you will pee lots initially (LOTS!) but it gets better. If you currently eat poorly 80% of the time and 20% is healthy, flip that around. Think about what you have eaten and what you are going to eat, plan, make meals the night before!

Do whatever you need to limit resistance to your new LIFESTYLE! If you have trouble motivating yourself have a friend or loved one join you on the journey.
