3 steps to a healthier week!

Tomorrow is Monday! A time for a fresh start, a time to start working towards a better you! It doesn’t have to be hard either. In fact, it is quite simple, just follow these three steps.

1) Add MORE vegetables to your diet. No matter what your diet looks like right now, add 1-2 servings of veggies to your diet this week. 

2) Strength train 3 days a week. Strength training stimulates muscle growth and muscle is an “expensive” tissue meaning it takes more calories to maintain than fat. So by strength training you are telling your body to prioritize muscle,burn more calories, and not to mention GET STRONGER!

3)Focus on NEAT. NEAT stands for non-exercise activity thermogenesis. In other words, take the stairs, park at the back of the lot, walk around the block after dinner. Focus on getting in more daily activity instead of focusing on crushing yourself in a one hour cardio session. This increased daily activity will end up burning more calories than a cardio session AND it is just healthier to be active throughout the day instead of stationary with one hour of intense cardio. 
There you go, three steps that will help getting healthier seem less overwhelming and more doable!  
The idea is to ease into health and fitness. Diving into the deep in with no practice is only going to leave you burned, overwhelmed, and eventually will lead to quitting.
Have a great week.
