(My further commentary in RED)
1. Considering workouts license to binge-One recent study in Marketing Letters found that people who were told a one-mile walk was for exercise ate about twice as much afterward as those informed the outing was for fun.
This is why I ask all my client for 15 reasons why they are training with me. We must uncover the intrinsic value of our physical activity. What feeds your soul is going to make your commitment to our health life long
2. Underestimating how much time you have-Some weeks, finding that extra half hour to slip in a workout isn’t easy-why it’s good to have a back-up plan “even a 10-minute cardio video on YouTube can keep you on track.” Stoler says
Our physical activity does not have to “formal”. An hour class, 45 minutes on the treadmill. ALL of your physical movement adds up during the day. Take the steps instead of the elevator. Park FAR away from the store.
3. 3. Always doing the same routine-“You can’t perform the same exercise over and over and expect the same benefits.” Says Stoler. To get better results, follow the FIT principle: vary the frequency, intensity and time.
The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting different results.One must always change up they activity to recruit as many different muscle fibers and stability tissue to allow our whole body to perform well for us. Plus our mind will get bored!
4. 4. Ignoring weights-Women who are getting started on an exercise program often think they should stick with just cardio, Stoler notes: but you need strength training to keep your metabolism revved up.
Strength training does not only rev your metabolism up, it is essential to give power and stability to our structure. Strength training does not mean pressing 200 lbs on a bench press. It means bringing integrity to our bodies that must perform so many movements. Our muscles governor our cardiovascular abilities. With greater muscle, tendon, ligament strength and stability the more effective our cardiopulmonary system with function. Muscles give us “form and function”
5. 5. Giving in to your energy drain-A top excuse for not exercising.” I’m too tired.” Fake yourself out, urges Holly Wyatt MD.” Say you’ll walk for only 10 minutes and you’ll likely go longer. Exercise energizes you!”
It is amazing how once you start it is easy to continue. Once our hormones kick in, our energy increases. A perfect example, is one of my clients, who is so dedicated, will come into her 7pm session, many times so energy depleted that she almost doesn’t come, managed to get yourself to her session, but leaves with 100 percent more energy and mental clarity. She KNOWS she has to make that most important step of getting to her session, because she recognizes the absolute difference in makes in her life. Hopefully she will read this and give some guidance to others that struggle with “that initial thought of giving in to energy depletion.” I know it sounds like an oxymoron but when you expend energy, you gain energy…Remember it doesn’t have to be a full out hour kill-o-thon to receive the energy upsurge benefits.

    I totally agree with #5. I always tell myself 10 minutes is better than 0 minutes and often after I get going for 10 minutes I feel great and want to keep going.
