Mid Week Motivator- Getting Started

It is well into the first week of the new year. Perhaps you have declared this is the year that you will get healthy! Earlier this week I focused on your motivation in doing so. Today, I am going to look at the practical things you will need to do.

Exercising
1- Invest in a good pair of sneakers. A shoddy pair of shoes can lead to injury.
2-For the ladies, a good jogging bra (or two).
3-Hold off on that gym membership. Yep, you read right. Get into the habit of working out, ask friends about coming in as a guest. Figure out what works for you before putting down a lot of cash.
(Plus let the gyms woo you! There are great deals for memberships so shop around!).
4- Download apps like Nike Running, Couch to 5k etc. Try them out and see what works for you.

Food:
1-Clean out your cabinets, fridge and hiding places. Toss out the bad stuff.
2- Replace the thrown out food with the good stuff. Introduce yourself to the vegetable section, try new stuff!
3-Download an app to help you with keeping track of calorie intake. I loved My Fitness Pal.
4- Plan your meals, bring your lunch to work. In this vein, cook at home or ahead for week.

This is not everything, but this will help you get started!
