10 Easy Tips To Get In Shape

Christmas time is over, and it's soon a new year to start over and make some good New Years resolutions. Getting in shape, and having a long term plan for the summer might be one. After many years of training and dieting I have some experience in this field, so I thought I would share some of the experience me and my friends have made through the years in 10 easy tips!

1.) Start working out. There is simply no way out. Find an activity you can get comfortable with and enjoy. There is plenty to choose from. Jogging, hillwalking, tennis, the gym or swimming.
2.) Make sure your activity makes you sweat. I have to be honest with you: Light activities is FAR from optimal.
3.) Ask a friend to join you. Everyone has a friend who either works out, or would like to start. Competition or simply encouragement is good, plus it makes it even more social.
4.) Replace certain foods with healthier alternatives. Meat farce with ground beef, regular Pepsi with Pepsi Max, regular cheese with light cheese and the list goes on.
5.) Cut some of the dressing or sauce on your foods. Remember 1 dl of fat is nearly 1000kcal!
6.) After working out, do not cheat on yourself by thinking that you now deserve something unhealthy.
7.) Try getting some protein in every meal. Good protein sources are milk, beef, fish, shellfish, eggs and different types of white and red meat.
8.) Do not cheat on yourself by skipping your training. If you are not feeling 100% that day, head to training anyway and do what you can. Very often you quicken up after warming up a bit.
9.) In stead of the previous chocolate, fast-food and Coca Cola, spend some money on your training wardrobe.
10.) Take measurements and pictures and see the progress. This is maybe the biggest motivators when you see your progress!

Good luck!
