Weight Loss: Tweaking Your Lifestyle

Despite our national propensity to overeat, under-exercise, and grow steadily heavier and more out of shape, we all want to be slim, fit, and attractive. Appreciation of our culture's thin and beautiful; see how we eat celebrity gossip, fascinated by the look and energy of our current favorite.

Why the difference between the aspirations and our reality? There are many reasons, most of which can be traced to the fact that the simple life that block.

"I'll be happy to reduce my food intake," we think, "But I have to attend all the functions work and have little control over the food." "I really want to get in shape," we complain, "But there's no spare time and I could not like a personal trainer I saw a movie star." "I really want to take care of my skin and body," we wail, "But I was so busy that quick shower and slap moisturizer can I fit into my schedule."

That would be nice to have lots of free time: to plan our days; to cook low-calorie, healthy foods, to exercise without a time limit; to be able to indulge themselves without the pressure of deadlines. Unfortunately, our lives are too busy to happen in the near future. We can throw up our hands in frustration and joined forces with overweight and unfit, or we can create a personal plan that fit our lifestyle, bring us where we want to go, though not so quickly or completely as we prefer .

Your life, your time, the demands and responsibilities that you face, varies individually. You will need to calculate what works for you, and what realistically can not be accommodated. Here are some ideas to consider:

1. Diet

Eating while walking, on your desk, or on the rubber chicken circuit, wreaks havoc with even the best laid diet plans. If you weigh even one pound more than you'd like, try to identify where you are going astray.

If fast food on the road to the promise is your downfall, look what you ordered. Almost all the drive-Thrus today offers a salad. Problems with the salad can be minimized by removing a small bag croutons (fried) and remove the packaged sauce (full of fat). Bring your own individual container low-calorie dressing, choose to (unsweetened) iced tea, black coffee, or diet soda, and avoid those sugar-laden cola like their doom.

If you eat lunch at your desk, ask yourself what you eat? If it was takeout, would have a cheeseburger or a sandwich. Just throw bread or bread and eating with plastic knives and forks, cut into pieces the size of raisins that you will fill quickly. French fries and onion rings? You just do not want to go there.

Does your office is always filled with snacks and treats (because most of them seem today)?When the food arrived, went to the bathroom or, better yet, take a brisk walk around the building for your beef "will not" force and a clear vision of goods from your head.

If a business lunch, dinner, or a terrible meal is meeting your obstacles, plan ahead. Noon relatively easy: a salad (with your own sauce, of course) or fish and cottage cheese are available almost anywhere. Dinner, try two low calorie appetizers instead of a dish. Best of all is something that you have to work here - crab legs, peeled shrimp, an artichoke (continued hollandaise) - this will take a lot of time and no one would see how little you actually eat.

Banquet very difficult because the plate is plunked in front of you, filled with food you will never order by choice. Cut protein and vegetables anything into small pieces and chew slowly. The rest is spread out over the plate and play with it to delay the onset of a sweet dessert. Get a cup of black coffee and the place was right in front of you to block that eager beaver-maid who kept trying to slide a plate of cookies to your table.

Entertain at home creates a different set of problems because usually you know the lady of the house and wanted to avoid creating bad feelings. Falling back allergies because no one wants to see you break out in a nest in the middle of their party. Bringing club soda or mineral water with you and no one will see that you do not drink.

During the period of time, small changes can have a significant impact on your weight. If you are hungry when you get home, make sure that you have some fluid proteins or health shakes that are available to complement your daily nutritional needs.

2. Exercise.

With good intentions, millions of us buy sports membership. If we all actually used them regularly, as we promise ourselves we will, there will be a line spilled into the streets. Health clubs can still sign up more and more members because they know that the number of customers will still remain about the same as new enrollees will appear at the beginning of an explosion of enthusiasm, but in a few weeks will gradually fade.

Unless you have a job with a very regular hours, something that few of us enjoy these days, very difficult to commit to go to a place on a regular basis. We intend to go but then appeared important meeting, we ask our partners to do something, or interfere with our children to take them somewhere.

High demand we are living almost forces us to get our training at home. Television is full of home equipment that promises to flatten our abs, pects define us, and re-sculpt the entire body.Despite assurances that the equipment easy to fold away, we know that our apartment was never able to accommodate the Bowflex or the Nordic Track. Where the buyer is alive? On the outskirts of town, we suspect, in which expensive equipment immediately lowered into the basement or garage to collect dust until some future yard sale coming. Equipment, except for a minimal contraptions like a rubber band and a heavy hand, just too many problems, and set them to take too much time.

Exercise slide into your schedule most easily handled (and therefore more likely to repeat on a regular basis) to pursue activities that can be started without any preparation time, special clothing, or a long free from distractions. The old backup of pushups, situps, stretching with weights, yoga, and gymnastics have stood the test of time for a reason. They can be incorporated into the crowded schedule at odd times of day and requires no preparation except for a brief warm-up. Some more recent programs: callanetics, pilates (a), killer exercises, and training videos are also in accordance with these requirements.

When you suddenly discover the secret of free half-hour, walk-street and, if you can, increase the benefits to running the occasional attack.

Such a plan should not make you a Mr. or Ms. Universe, but will keep you flexible and semi-fit while avoiding the energy consumed with guilt that you develop when you set your sights too high and then fails to follow through.

3. Nurture yourself.

We all read the story about Cleopatra bathing in asses' milk for skin-whitening and smooth. But she was a queen, for God's sake! He does not need to wake up at dawn to fight the traffic to the office. He does not need to take care of husband, home, or a child. You will have time for relaxing bath if not to clean house, wash clothes, complete a report to the office, helping children with homework, cook dinner, and took Aunt Mildred at the airport.

We know we need to take care of ourselves. We want to do a routine that will prevent the signs of the times that waiting just around the corner. We would love every day for long bath or shower, our skin polish to perfection with a loofah and scrubbing powder, wrapped themselves in skin softeners and lotions, and spoiling our face and hair with a special cleansing, masques, and skin brighteners.

Once again, our lives can be on the road. We worked out a routine minimal makeup remover, toner, and moisturizer. We shampoo our hair when we can and sometimes find time for a special oil or facial treatment. It is difficult to fully motivated when the signs of age are short and quick. When I have more time, we say to yourself, I'll work on it. Twenty years later, the wrinkles have set in, the jaw has been expanded, and skin wounds we carry the sun, wind, and gravity. Then we bemoan our lack of care for many years and try to minimize the damage that can not be erased when listed on our face.

By all means, keep the daily routine faster. Sure, you can get up early in the morning and have time for self care that much but you are, like most Americans of working age, lack of sleep.

One solution is to identify a period of a week when you can steal a few hours for yourself.Women, especially, hurt themselves, too busy taking care of others and ignore their own self.You claim that lurk two hours for the window, as if your life depended on it. Use only for you.Use it to take in care for your face or your hair. Use it to practice relaxation, listening to music, or walking in the rain. Use it to pamper every part of the body and soul. Use it to think about yourself, and your goals and your dreams. Use it for yourself and appreciate the good things life has brought you. Use it to lay plans for future development and use it to become your own best friend and confidant.

Our lives are so filled with what we have to do that the internal needs and requirements are often not met. Even the busiest and most demanding schedules, there are times when we can carve out for ourselves, but only if we really insist on it. Now is the time to be assertive about your own self. You are also entitled to a moment in the sun.
