By introducing boundaries it is very important for helping you to achieve the ideal physique.
- Fitness Boundary One: What You Eat
Eating refined, fried, processed and sugary foods are definitely not the way to go if you’re trying to achieve a healthy and fit body. So basically you need to avoid these foods at all costs.
Simply by placing this boundary around your diet can be very beneficial. So allow yourself to eat whole foods, vegetables, fruits and lean meat.
- Fitness Boundary Two: How you exercise
Just because you’re not a professional athlete or training for the Olympics, doesn’t mean you can avoid exercise. Exercising regularly has so many benefits such as improved self-esteem due to the fact your body shape will improve and also the level of energy you will have will be through the roof.
You should place boundaries around the frequency of exercise. Also when doing exercise, try and select workouts that are challenging yet fun. Put some variety into the workouts so you improve strength and endurance.
- Fitness Boundary Three: When You Indulge
Indulging has become so easy in today’s society, it’s thrown right in our faces and the opportunities to indulge are endless. If you continue to live life without placing boundaries on the opportunity to indulge, well then I guess you’re a lost cause. These small indulgences quickly add up and before you know it, the top button of your jeans is clinging on for dear life or half way across the bedroom floor.
By removing everyday indulgences and limiting them to certain times of the week, will help fight the flab and you will end up enjoying them 10 times more.
Putting It in Action
You really need to think long and hard about your lifestyle choices. Are they really benefiting you or are they causing more damage. Ask your self, am I exercising enough, am I eating right and am I indulging far too often. Once you have asked these questions you will be on the right path to achieving that ultimate physique you desire. To help with this you should answer these questions:
- What can I remove from my daily diet? (High calorie beverages, McDonalds etc, High fat foods)
- When should I work out? (at least 3-5 times a week e.g. Mon, Weds and Fri)
- When should I have a cheat day? (Doesn’t mean you eat the weeks worth of junk in one day, be smart and keep it to a minimum because your goal is most likely to be fat loss).
Once you get used to these fitness boundaries your body switches to autopilot and the results are seen in no time.
If you know what to eat and you are committed 110% to exercising at least 3 times a week, well then it’s no surprise it will become second nature to you.
