Resolution #3: Walk or Jog in morning. Did you know that going on a 15 minutes walk right after waking contributes to weight loss? Getting out of bed 15 minutes earlier, lacing up your tennis shoes, and simply walking around block will lead to fat burn and lost pounds! When you get up and move first thing in morning, before breakfast, your body is more likely to used stored fat as energy. Weight loss is supposed to be harder than this, right?
Resolution #4: Obey No Food Three Hours Before Bed Rule. Eating a snack after dinner is a widely held habit. Although food always seems to taste better right before bed, it is also more prone to stick with you when eaten late at night. It has been proven that not eating three hours before bed reduces fat storage throughout night. If you go to bed at 10pm, finish eating for day no later than 7pm. Once you have made this a habit you will be ecstatic over long-term weight loss!
Resolution #5: Spice up you Workouts with Circuit Training Are your workouts consisting of same exercises in same order at same weight? If you find yourself falling into a rut at gym give circuit training a try. Start by doing one set of your first exercise and then moving on to do one set of your second exercise. After you have done every exercise once, start again from top! If you want to burn extra calories add 5 minutes on a bike between each set. Get creative and add new exercises into your circuits, and your workouts will be fun and energizing!
Now all you have to do is pick one of these New Year’s Resolutions, make it a part of your daily life, and watch as pounds fall off in 2005!
