8. Weighing Yourself
Weighing yourself, much like taking selfies, can also contribute to fitness goals. Regular weighing can give you an accurate picture of where you are on your weight loss journey. If you are cycling through workouts and diet plans, it can also give you an idea of what is working and what isn’t, allowing you to make better choices. Keep in mind, however, that this, much like the ‘taking a selfie’ tip, depends greatly on your frame of mind. Don’t discourage yourself if the number is higher than you’d like. Instead, commit to a strategy to lose the excess weight safely.
7. Take More Walks
For most people, it doesn’t take much to stimulate your metabolism in a positive way. In fact, the minimum level of exercise needed to burn fat is a mere half-hour of light exercise daily. It might seem like a lot, with all of the distractions that can be crammed into a day, but if you have time in the mornings or the evenings, or even during breaks at work, you can eek out that half-hour of strolling here and there, and it will take some inches off the gut. If you’re already working out, it only helps more.Related: Benefits of Walking
6. Enlist Your Friends
Things are more fun when you do them together. Alternatively, misery loves company. Either way, bringing your friends on board can help you all lose a little more weight. Having friends who understand your struggle can keep you committed to working out or sticking to a diet; it can motivate you to work harder in the gym. You can also bounce workout routines, recipes, and other healthy ideas off each other. A little healthy competition might also develop. Working out and time with your friends both boost serotonin levels, allowing you to fight through the pain and make better progress.
