7 Ways to Change Your Think About Exercising

We’ve all heard the saying, 80% nutrition, 20% exercise, and 100% mindset.  As cliche as it sounds, fitness really is a mindset.  It’s not a chore, it’s something that should become a part of who we are.

  • We must stop thinking of exercise as a punishment for eating something bad.  Far too often I hear “I need to burn off what I just ate.” or “I can’t get off the treadmill until I burn the 250 calories that were in the chocolate bar.”  That is so wrong in so many different ways.  Exercise is NOT a punishment, it is a BLESSING.  We are not paralyzed, we are not confined to a wheel chair, we have the ability to MOVE, and therefore are blessed to be able to to exercise.  Even then, we’ve all seen the para-olympic athletes…so even then many of the disability excuses become invalid.  But I’m not here to talk about the minority.
  • Exercise is a part of life.  The same way eating, sleeping, and working, are part of life exercise should be as well.  We need to stop thinking about it as something on our “to do” list.
  • Exercising CORRECTLY, (I emphasize the word correctly because every time I walk into a gym I see a lot of people herniating discs, or torn meniscus in the making.  Simple because people lack the proper education) allows us to grow old gracefully and with less aches and pains.
  • Exercise not only allows us to age more gracefully physiologically, but it also allows us to look better in the process…who doesn’t like to look better naked.
  • Exercise is FUN!  Find a way that makes it fun for you, because we are all different some activities are more fun for some than others, so find what is fun for YOU.
  • Exercise energizes! Hate constantly feeling sluggish?  Exercise allows us to have more energy throughout the day.  Many people workout at night and then complain they could not sleep because they had so much energy, imagine if you did your workout first thing in the morning and started your day with all of that energy.
  • Exercise is point blank a MINDSET.

How does your mindset all  you to make exercise a part of your lifestyle?

High Intensity Interval Training

Here I am finally able to sit down and write my weekly post after surviving week 1 of 6 of summer semester general chemistry 2.  Anyways, today I wanted to touch up on High Intensity Interval Training otherwise known as HIIT.

Fingers crossed, my ebook will finally be out by the end of June.  I have put crazy amount of time, effort, and research into constructing my 30 day program.  After much hair pulling, I decided that my first ebook would be centered around HIIT. Why? there are 3 main reasons.

1.  It is for all fitness levels.  Because there are small bouts of exercise before an even smaller rest, a person of any level is able to push themselves as hard as they possibly can in that bout of exercise.  Of course, it’s not really advised to sell yourself short and not give it your all in order to get the maximum benefits.

2.  Fat burning and metabolic boosting benefits  Not only do you burn twice the calories in the same amount of time as you would doing more traditional forms of cardio (treadmill and elliptical), but HIIT generates whats called EPOC (exercise post-exercise oxygen consumption).  EPOC in simple turns is when your body continues to consume oxygen even after your workout and sets your body up for more calories burned throughout the day.  So imagine starting your day with just 30 minutes of my HIIT program!

3.  Strengthens the heart.  A stronger heart muscle allows us to carry out daily activities like walking and using the stairs with more ease.  A stronger heart also allows your body to pump blood more efficiently and ultimately reducing your risk of stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol with more production of the good cholesterol, and heart disease later on in life.
