Hola Fit Fam!
Getting healthy and losing weight can be extremely overwhelming when just starting off.
Once someone decides they want to lose weight and change their lifestyle, what is the first step? Many people walk into the closest gym and sign up with, or rather are sold, a personal trainer. I know because I was one of those people. The sales people at the gym told me “this is our best trainer” and a few minutes later I was signing my name on the dotted line.
To make a long story short, I was soon disappointed with the lack of dedication this trainer had in my journey, their lack of knowledge, and my lack of results. This only made my goals seem more distant as I wondered if they were even attainable.
After deciding you want to overhaul your life and make healthy changes, the best place to start is your kitchen. There is a fundamental law of human nutrition and it goes like this:
If a food is in your possession or residence, then you will eventually consume it.
If you open your fridge and cabinets and see chocolates, pastas, and processed food, throw it all away. If you’re one of those people who think they are doing a pretty good job at stacking their fridge with healthy foods, open your fridge and really take an honest look. If you believe you are eating healthy, but are not seeing the results you want, chances are you aren’t. And that’s okay, we can fix this! If you open your fridge or cabinets and see ice cream, frozen breakfast goods, juices, chips, fruit bars or granola bars, or cereal, it’s time to do a kitchen overhaul. You can spend as much time sweating in the gym as you want, but a bad diet will only sabotage your efforts.
Your kitchen should be filled with color and fresh ingredients.
If you aren’t ready to toss the existing contents of your fridge and cabinets, then you may need to take a moment and be honest with yourself about your commitment to this journey. This doesn’t mean you will never again be able to enjoy your favorite indulgent. This just means by and large, you will be making healthier food choices. The weightloss and fitness journey is far more mental than it is physical.
You need dedication and mental toughness to reach your goals. Throwing away your old habits is the very much integral first step in this process. Once you have prepared yourself and your kitchen for the journey ahead, I would recommend doing a little bit of research to find the best coach and/or program for you. Carefully decide what factors are important to you. Are you busy and prefer doing things on your own time? If so, you may want to explore online training. Or do you need a scheduled time and organized days to meet with a trainer? Whatever you choose, take one step at a time.
