What is the best dad bod exercise? It’s running, ask anyone—no need for any equipment, no gym membership. However, like other fitness exercises, there is something you need to have before running, GOALS!
Doesn’t matter how far or frequently you run, if you don’t set any goals then you’re just walking down a path that has no direction or milestones to achieve. Training requires discipline, a plan and goals.
If you’re looking to set some goals for your weight loss training, here is how you do it.
1. Set Realistic Goals
This might seem very obvious, but most people fail to comprehend the idea of realistic goals. What we mean is that set goals that seem achievable, especially if this is your first time taking on a fitness regime.
Losing weight through running takes time and effort, so you need to be aware of your own limitations. For instance, it’s smart to aim for losing 1 to 2 pounds (0.5 to 1 kilogram) a week just by running if you also do regular exercises and adopt a low-calorie diet.
2. Inner Motivation
Remember, no one else can make you lose weight. If you want to improve your health, you need to come up with the right motivation for that. Make a list of things you want to achieve once you lose weight. A recent survey showed that most men consider marriage to be their biggest motivation for losing weight. Try surrounding yourself with people who send out positive vibes.
3. Make Sure You’re Ready
As we already mentioned, your time and effort will be invested in this process which is a long-term commitment. While you might think you’re ready, we just want you to give it another thought. Weight loss training would require you to change your diet, your schedule and adopting new habits. So, ask yourself:
- Am I willing to change activity habits?
- Am I ready to learn or use other strategies to cope with stress?
- Am I too distracted by other pressures?
- Am I motivated to lose weight?
4. Learn to Enjoy
Please don’t listen to people who are always ranting about how difficult it is to have a fitness regime and how much their body hurts. These are the people who would try to make sure you don’t get to achieve what they couldn’t.
Try eating food that keeps you healthy, adding a little spice would hurt anyone. Go online and look for tips to improve your diet food and how you can make a great meal out of it.
We hope this helped you get a sense of direction. Remember, you are the only one who can turn your life around. Set the right goals, lace up your trainers and get your teenage shape back.
