Building healthy habits for life.
Here you'll find a step by step process to start your new eating habits to become healthier, to improve your life in all aspects of Health and Fitness, while helping you building the life long habits you need to stay healthy and at a regular weight.
We've tried to make it simple for you by breaking down the steps so building life long habits become easier. We believe if you build one habit at a time slowly, you are more likely to stick with it.
Nutrition and Exercise diary.
To get the best results, you should use a food and exercise journal, you can use an exercise book for this, you don't have to spend alot of money on anything else.
One of your first habits is to fill out your nutrition and exercise diary every day for at least the next 2 weeks. Be as accurate as possible and no cheating, you will only be cheating yourself. If you didn't train on Monday don't write you did, if you ate 4 doughnuts and drank 2 litres of soft drink write it down. All this is important information as it tells us alot about how your body is working and what it's craving. This information will show us at a later date how your body is changing. You will see the changes in the food your body will desire at a later date.
When recording your exercise, simply record the type; eg. walking, weight training, High Intensity Training, with how long you exercised.
Enjoy the journey you are about to take. Remember you are not alone, need to ask questions, email your trainer, need advice, email your trainer, feeling unmotivated email or call your trainer or talk to other Peninsula Fit2go clients as they themselves have most likely felt the same way at one time or another, just know there is support and you are not alone.
Now, go forth and begin the first step of filling out your Journal and don't miss anything.
Also Don't Forget: turn up to training on a regular basis, that's part of your first step .
TIP: take your journal everywhere you go, it will be easier to fill out what you've eaten at the time rather than trying to remember and filling it out at the end of the day. Beside your entry also put what time you ate your meals or snack and same goes for exercise.
Hint: also write in your journals how you are feeling physically and emotionally. Great to look back on when you've actually achieved your goals as we often forget our hardships or highs along the way.
Please take your filled out Journal to your trainer so you can discuss the next step. Remember, we are not here to judge, we are here to help you. Please read the next step before you talk to your trainer and think of any questions you may need to ask before advancing.
Well Done, stick with it, the life changing part is coming.
