People often ask me how do I maintain my weight and how do I find the time and money to exercise. It’s not that we don’t have the time to take care of ourselves, we don’t prioritize it. Have you ever heard of the saying, “We make time for what we want to do?”
Read Paula Pant’s article on tracking time and listen to her podcast interview with Laura Vanderkam at http://affordanything.com/2016/08/28/i-tracked-my-time-in-15-minute-increments-for-a-week-the-results-are-embarrassing/. Track how you spend your time throughout the day. You have more time than you think you have. You’re not that damn busy!
News flash, you do not need money to work out! As I mentioned before, walking is free. Running is free. Exercising is not a fashion show catwalk either. Wear a t-shirt with a couple of stains on it and baggy shorts. Who cares! YouTube and cable television provide several health and fitness channels that you can follow along with while you’re sitting in the house doing nothing. The Internet provides a wealth of nutrition and fitness advice for free! I rely on all of the above on days that I decide not to go to the gym and it works! Below is a list of my favorite health and fitness websites and why I love them so much.
I love WebMd! This is my go-to website for fitness, nutrition, health, and beauty tips. The website provides slideshows about healthy and unhealthy foods and articles about nutrition, diseases, and fitness. They even engage readers by adding fun multiple choice quizzes about health and nutrition. In addition, if you feel under the weather, the website is equipped with a symptom checker. Readers can type their symptoms into the search engine and WebMd can provide a diagnosis. I’ve used this feature before and what I had discovered was often confirmed by my doctor. I would still encourage you to make a doctor’s appointment if you’re feeling under the weather. Do not rely solely on information found on the Internet!
This website is an excellent quick resource that provides daily fitness tips, healthy creative recipes, and information on supplements. Recently, the website provided readers with an article that covered advice from a nutritionist. In addition, exercise routines are abundant. The routines can be performed in a gym or at home. Just subscribe! It’s free!
This site is an amazing resource if you are looking for a healthier version of your favorite recipes! The author can convert anything fatty into something healthier and delicious. She also provides resources for getting back on track with your diet. In addition, fun, healthy, easy to make recipes for children are provided. I often used her recipes when my children were in school. They are quick, easy, and healthy.
Livestrong is my Internet Bible for fitness advice. The website provides information about healthy recipes and exercise routines. They also provide articles to help readers navigate around the gym by teaching about the proper form and techniques to use when utilizing gym equipment. Also, there is a wealth of information about illnesses and diseases.
Words cannot describe the nutrition information going down on this website! This, Brother, will turn you into Julia Child or Gordon Ramsay! He prepares amazing, tasty, healthy recipes on YouTube. He also teaches subscribers how to shop at the supermarket and how to meal prep step by step. His Instagram page displays an array of colorful healthy recipes. It makes me want to eat my iPhone! I would say that he has changed the culture of food. He makes people who don’t enjoy cooking want to learn. Check it out! https://www.instagram.com/fitmencook/?hl=en
