Stop Making Excuses and Learn How to Be Healthy

Excuses, excuses, excuses. They always seem to keep us from getting where we really want to be. Not this year! It's time to push excuses off for good so you can drop that extra weight, quit your junk food habit, or finally get in shape.
Use these workarounds to bust your favorite excuses so they don't rule you:
 I'm too tired to exercise.
Tell your body you're too tired to exercise and you'll downshift your energy production (thanks to a mechanism called feedback loops). Tell your body you need to walk and you'll generate the energy you need to take a daily jaunt. Make healthy behaviors automatic by programming your body to want to move.

 I'm a terrible cook so I eat out a lot.
Don't arrive at the restaurant starving! Eat a little healthful fat, such as six walnut halves, before you get there. The healthful fat in walnuts triggers a chain reaction that slows the rate at which your stomach empties, so you'll feel fuller faster. Also drink at least one full glass of water before you order. This helps fill you up so you don't overeat. Ask for cut-up veggies instead of bread, and stick to an appetizer or consider sharing your entree
 I have foot pain and can't walk.
When you're in pain, exercising might be the last thing you feel like doing, but it pays to keep moving. Workouts encourage your body to release endorphins -- neurotransmitters that act as natural painkillers. Try biking or swimming (there's more than one way to get your heart rate up!), but be sure to see a podiatrist to find out what's causing your pain
 I travel all the time and have to eat on the road.
Rely on more snacks instead of pigging out on big meals. Travel with easy-to-carry baggies of snacks, such as nuts, cut-up apples, or baby carrots, to take the edge off your hunger


 Few things plant the waist-widening TV remote more firmly in our hands than the need to destress. But here's a healthier way to let go of it all: Just breathe deeply.
It takes only about 30 seconds to do it right, and a quick and easy stress reduction strategy like this is critical to your waistline -- especially given a recent study on job stress and weight gain. In the study, workers who were super stressed tended to have bigger bellies than their peers who were more at ease.
Pound-Packing Stress Relief?

It's not that stress in and of itself causes waistlines to expand; it's how people deal with the stress that makes them fat. Researchers suspect the difference in weight was more likely due to the unhealthy coping mechanisms the stressed-out folks used -- like vegging in front of the TV, skipping that afternoon walk, and dipping into a pint of double fudge ice cream for cold comfort when they got home.

Chill Out to Slim Down
Still, stress itself may do some damage as well. In fact, other research has found that chronic stress can increase the production of cortisol -- an anxiety hormone that facilitates the storage of belly fat and may boost cravings for high-calorie snacks. The good news? You can put stress to bed with just 30 seconds of deep breathing. (Watch This Video )
And if deep breathing isn't your thing, here are a couple of alternatives to try

 Use Exercise to Help your self Lose 


When I finally got fed up with being rotund, the first thing I did was clean up my diet. However, this wasn’t enough to help me lose weight consistently. With the amount of fat I needed to lose, nutrition alone just wasn’t going to cut it; so I started an exercise program to keep those fat burning results coming. Here’s how to use exercise to send unwanted body fat packing.

Do Plenty of Cardio

help me lose weightIn order to lose one pound of fat you have to burn 3500 calories. It’s almost impossible to achieve this without doing cardiovascular exercises. Aim to get cardio (with an emphasis on high intensity interval training) five days a week. If you’re super busy (like most of us) and find it hard to squeeze cardio into your day, break your workouts up into chunks.
Here’s an example of how you can break your cardio workouts into manageable pieces:
  • Run on a treadmill for 15 minutes when you wake up.
  • Take a brisk 15 minute walk around the parking lot during your lunch break.
  • Pop in a workout video and exercise for 15 to 30 minutes before dinner.
Don’t feel like your only options for good cardio workouts are treadmills and exercise bikes. There’s nothing wrong with these machines, they work great. But if you do them all the time, they can get sort of humdrum. There are plenty of other ways to get your heart jumping. Some examples include kick boxing, mowing the lawn, gardening, jumping rope and swimming.

Pump a Little Iron

Many women avoid weights like the plague. They fear pumping iron will make them look bulky and masculine. This is absolutely not true. Unless you use some sort of performance-enhancing drug when you lift weights, the possibility of looking like the Hulk is slim.
When you build lean muscle tissue by lifting weights, it kicks your metabolism into high gear and helps you slim down. Keep in mind, the more lean muscle mass you have, the more calories your body will burn—even when you’re stretched out on the couch doing nothing (nice!).
Also, lean muscle mass is compact so it takes up less space than fat. Any lean muscle tissue you build lifting weights will tone your body and give you a streamlined physique. Ladies, if you really want to get in shape, put your fears of huskiness to rest and pump weights three times a week.

Sample Workout Plan to Get You Started

In one of my past newsletters, I talked about building a foundation by focusing on mastering the basics—lunges, squats, pushing, twisting and pulling. Do the below exercise back to back. After you do the entire circuit, repeat all five exercises two more times.
  • Bodyweight squats – 10 to 20 repetitions
  • Bodyweight lunges – 8 on each leg
  • Modified pushups on your knees 10 to 15 repetitions
  • Assisted pull ups – 10 repetitions
  • Medicine ball or dumbbell woodchop – 10 repetitions per side
As your fitness level increases, you can build on these exercises to make them more challenging by increasing resistance and making them more complex.
There’s nothing like waking up every morning looking and feeling your best. Anything less is unacceptable. Let The Diet Solution Program show you these tried and true methods that I’ve used to help me lose weight
