Six Things To Avoid As You Keep Working Toward Fitness
Learning to be a fit and healthy person takes a lot of diligence and dedication. There are temptations
all around you and if you don't approach them with caution, you could be shooting yourself in the
fitness foot! Consider the following scenarios to keep you on the fitness level and reinforcing your
own good habits.
1. Your vehicle. Eating on the go can really cost you in terms of calories. You make poor, split-second
decisions which you pay for later. Eating in your car, most especially items you bought at a drive-thru
or convenience store are generally packed with fats, sodium and other bad-for-you ingredients that
mean you either pick up the pace at the gym, or pack on the pounds.
2. Hard at work. It's very difficult to be hungry, but often times it's difficult to take a break at work.
Deadlines, meetings, urgent client situations and other pressing issues keep us from being able to
make healthy eating choices. To combat this problem, have ready-to-eat snacks in your desk drawer
or briefcase. Things like almonds or banana chips are high in nutrients and will hold you over until you
can eat a square meal.
3. Out on the town. Restaurants, ballparks and movie theaters are overflowing with tempting
deviations to your fitness-conscious diet. Not only are they often one-of-a-kind items you can't readily
find else where, like hot-buttered gourmet popcorn or specialty, New York style hotdogs but the
atmosphere is very conducive to tantalizing you right off the healthy menu you have dedicated
yourself to! Bring your own munchies, or avoid dining and entertainment venues that steer you too far
4. At a friend's house. Most people aren't really living the fitness-oriented lifestyle you are attempting
to maintain, and enjoying the company of friends can really put you in a compromising position. Not
only is the food deliciously tempting, but you risk offending people you care about by turning down
their food! Make a point of letting your host or hostess aware of your restrictions and why. Bring a
healthy alternative for dessert, and maybe you will convince your friends to be more geared toward
fitness inspired delights.
5. Holidays. In a single day, Americans can counteract months of hard work at the gym. It's called
Thanksgiving. People take advantage of the amazing foods and sedentary festivities of holidays, but
soon feel the regret. Don't be lulled into letting your fitness guard down, no matter what the
celebration calls for. It's also easy to slip-up on holidays and then use that as an excuse to really
slack off in the days that follow.
6. Weekends at your house! Of course, you deserve the rest and relaxation that Saturday and
Sunday have to offer, but don't let it become an opportunity for unhealthy foods and habits to take
over. Sitting on the sofa watching sports and not regulating your diet can really set you back from the
hard efforts you've put into fitness all week long. Get plenty of recuperation time in without taking too
many steps backwards. Even a walk after lunch will keep you active, or you can get a few laps in at
the ocean while spending the rest of the day lounging.
Maintaining a high level of fitness is not something that happens easily, you need to keep working at
it and remain dedicated to it, no matter what the occasion. Keep the advice of this article in mind the
next time you head out for fun or prepare for a lazy weekend; slacking off is just too
counterproductive to fitness and you've worked too hard to get where you are at!
