Are you stuck in a fitness rut? Maybe you’re simply stuck on the couch. If you’re experiencing fatigue, bloating and energy swings, it’s more than likely caused by your food choices and lethargy. Follow these recommendations from the health experts to jazz up your fitness routine. Do you have a phobia of public gyms? Healthy life styles can easily be established without stepping foot in a gym or workout facility. Take advantage of the awesome deals offered by Groupon coupons and invest in a pair of athletic shoes from the amazing selection and valued available at Aldo Shoes.

Start your program by hanging your mindset. The goal of a healthy lifestyle is not weight loss. Weight loss, muscle toning and increased energy levels are byproducts of healthy life styles.  Commit to moving by engaging in any activity of your choice for at least thirty minutes every day. Take a brisk walk while enjoying your favorite music, go for swim or rent a kayak for a few hours. The more you enjoy an activity, the more likely you’ll be to engage. Get your heart rate up and start feeling muscles that have been dormant for too long.

Don’t sabotage your new fitness regime with poor food choices. Commit to eliminating sugary sodas, including diet, and fast foods from your diet. Loaded with excess sugar and copious amounts of sodium, these food choices wreak havoc on your digestive system, waistline, skin, blood pressure and mood. Replace these with large quantities of water flavored by lemon slices and a variety of fruits, vegetables and lean meats and fish. You don’t need to be an accomplished chef to select and prepare healthy foods. Grill a chicken breast and steam your favorite vegetables and you’ll be on your way to a healthy meal. Quality food choices are just as important as quantity. Consuming large amounts of healthy foods won’t allow for weight loss or increased stamina. Meat and fish portions should be no larger than your fist. Two simple secrets to jump starting a healthy life style are enjoying a healthy breakfast every day and enjoying an uninterrupted sleep of at least seven to eight hours. Best of luck on your new healthy life style journey!
