If you are planning on being healthy and fit in this year, this blog is for you. I am gonna share a bunch of like tips and tricks and life hacks. Let’s get on the blog.
1. Swap Chocolate Milk for Coconut Milk
So one of the easiest ways to switch up your health routine and get super fit and healthy for 2019 is definitely to just Improve your diet, and I’m not saying by tomorrow You got to be eaten only broccoli and only fruit and vegetables. But a super easy thing to do is just open up your fridge and think about next time you go to the supermarket what you could swap something out for. So for me, I swapped out like chocolate milk for coconut milk, and I also swapped out french fries for sweet potato fries.
2. Hate Going to the gym
I hate going to the gym. I said it. I don’t like it It’s boring, and it makes me feel super awkward when someone else is in there And I feel like I don’t know how to use the machines And I’m guessing that because I don’t like going in the gym. I used to dread working out even though like the working out part Isn’t the part I hate. So for me personally I like working out in my lounge room and my comfy clothes. So if you guys aren’t getting active and you really just like wanna kick start it Then totally start by just doing things you love like dancing or running or just like playing soccer with your friends.
3. Jot down the workouts you want to do
I’d really recommend just and grabbing yourself a piece of paper or a planner or a diary. Just so you can jot down the workouts you want to do so you can track them to make sure you’re getting them done. I used to do this thing. Let me know if you guys ever do it But I would always say I can’t work out because I don’t feel motivated to do it and then I try and wait to be Motivated and I would just never get motivated, so I never worked out. Anyone else? Having a planner though makes me feel way more inspired to get out of bed and like stop eating french fries for breakfast? But I find having the planner there with all my workouts already written down. It makes me feel so much more inspired.
4. Do 25-star jumps
Okay, so a super easy lazy person Fitness life hack is every single time you guys walk out of the bathroom do 25 star jumps to get a little more exercise in it looks super weird, but it’s fun. You can try this tip. It’s better to jump rather than the gym workout.
5. Try this DIY Recipe
I feel like my favorite would have to be chocolate or ice cream and like they’re pretty unhealthy But I feel like this DIY recipe Kinda could substitute as both like maybe. But basically, all you do is take some yogurt in a ziplock bag and just like pipe it out onto a piece of baking paper. Freeze the yogurt overnight and then BAM you have like frozen yogurt little chips that kind of like chocolate chips. But like without the chocolate and they’re so good you guys, I could literally snack on these all day.
They’re so good to Let’s be real sometimes the hardest part of working out is just like not knowing what to do, where to start, what part of your body to work out. But I found this really easy DIY on Pinterest and basically, you just take some paddle-pop sticks Dump them into three different colors of paint so each color of paint Represents a different part of your body that you’ll be working out. Once You’ve got your paint dry you just want to take a Sharpie or a texture or a pen and just start writing out different workouts that you like doing. In high school I like skipped breakfast for a week straight because I felt like that was a cool thing to do and I remember I was so Starving and now I like to wake up for breakfast in the morning like honestly Breakfast may be one of the only reasons I get out of bed in the morning but breakfast is super important and especially if you’re trying to work out during the day you want to have a boost in energy. As soon as you wake up And I ain’t gonna lie I find eating toast for breakfast in the morning is so boring. But it’s really quick and easy but if you guys also want a quick and easy breakfast option a full of the fruit bowl is literally tastes so bomb. I honestly think you could make it quicker than you can make a piece of toast.
6. Make a Music playlist
So yes probably you know but I make a playlist for like every single occasion and I truly believe that making a playlist Especially for working out is essential. The songs I listen to when I’m working out versus the songs I listen to on a regular day are so different You don’t want to be listening to like slow music when you’re trying to like run on the treadmill because you’ll probably just turn into Like potato and just standstill. so when you’re making your workout playlist Definitely consider fast pace on this just so you can like you get your heart pumping. And you can really get in it to your workout.
7. Drink water
I know that you guys have heard like a million times How important it is to drink water and I’m pretty sure that I read somewhere recently that the human body is made up of like 60% water which is insane it is so important to stay hydrated especially if you sweat it out in the gym and I know a bunch of people who really don’t like the taste of water. So you guys don’t like the taste of water then you can also try Infusing your water with like berries or lemons just to make sure you’re still drinking as much water as possible. And of course don’t forget, You do not need super expensive gym equipment to get out and get active you can literally just head outside Into your neighborhood and go for a jog or literally just get a skipping rope and go skipping and it’s so much fun. I also read recently that going outside can help with stress relief so if you’re a person that gets stressed out head outside.
