Weight Loss Motivation
on 8/1/2010 by MyFitnessHut | filed in: Goals and Motivation
Weight loss motivation usually begins when you have become motivated to improve in other areas of your life. I'm not a psychologist, but I am a human. I know that when I am "messed up" in other areas of my life, it can sometimes be hard to exercise regularly and lose weight or maintain weight. Its also easier to eat those fatty "comfort foods" that pack on the pounds quickly.

I'm guessing you're not too much different from me. Are there other things in your life hindering your motivation to lose weight and burn fat. Some things that limit us are:

1. Fear of setting goals because of fear of failure. According to experts, setting low goals or no goals means you don't have to live up to high expectations.

2. When you have tried everything and nothing has worked, its easier to just give up. Don't give up. Keep trying. All it takes is the right exercise and nutrition program to help you succeed.

3. You will never reach your weight loss a... read more

Running Down Your Dinner – A Race To Survive
on 5/6/2010 by Rob1963 | filed in: Goals and Motivation
Running Down Your Dinner – A Race To Survive How do you put food on the table? For the majority of the people in the world it involves doing some sort of work, getting some sort of pay, and buying food. For people throughout time this would be a foreign concept. For them eating was the focus of the day and that focus was what led them to success. Failure was death.

Getting food on your plate for dinner can be viewed in a number of ways. Most children (at least in the United States) don’t put any thought into the matter. Table is where food magically appears at a designated time. For parents it can be a struggle as you live from week to week, trying to eat nutritiously, but the ‘cheap’ alternative foods are generally over-processed and lack in good nutritional value.

But the struggle we face now is nothing compared to eons ago when people scraped the ground and dropped some seeds, not understanding how the process of growing foods really worked, and supplementing vegetation with the occasional scavenged m... read more

Personal Achievement
on 3/29/2010 by mojorhythm | filed in: Goals and Motivation
At the beginning of this year, I sat at my laptop, thinking intently.  The thought occupying my mind at that time was the universal sentiment shared by many others at the New Year period, "what can I do to maximise my productivity in these next 365 days and ensure I have a kick ass year?"

For some it is not an easy question to answer.  Some do not really have a clear idea of what their long term personal desires are.  Are they are actual goals I desire, or just fleeting twinkle-eyed sentiments which will be vanquished with the flow of time?  These issues are not ultimately settled in some mental court room, decided authoritatively by a jury then banished out the rear exit, they always are with us in varying degrees, sometimes rearing their ugly head during times of stress, external conflict or emotional entropy.

However, this article is not intended to be about that.  My key purpose in writing this post is to communicate to you that de... read more

"Fit people are made not born"
on 3/1/2010 by onestrongman | filed in: Goals and Motivation
"Fit people are made not born" The original quote had the word "attractive" instead of "fit " but I modified the quote since this is fitness site.  This quote rings true in many ways.  I have never met a person who was really fit that did not have some level of physical activity.  Nor have I ever met a really fit person whose eating habits did not support their level of fitness.  

Fitness and health are not the same.  While health may involve some degree good fortune fitness is much more active and intentional.  Also, a fit person assumes health but the opposite is not always true.  I know many people who are healthy but when faced with a small daily fitness challenge opt to take the elevator over the stairs.  They take the easy way out because they do not value such exertion as a way to maintain or develop a level of fitness.  Taking the stairs involves a bit of work and making the conscious effort to exert oneself and that is exactly wha... read more

Self Assessment
on 1/24/2010 by Peace2u | filed in: Goals and Motivation
Self Assessment Do you need to see your doctor before you begin exercising?
The answer is yes if:

You have not exercised in a long time
You are over the age of 40
You have a medical condition

Your doctor can also help you determine realistic fitness goals. 

Knowing your current fitness level will help you design a program that is safe and not so difficult that it causes injury or frustration, or so easy that it fails to meet your needs. Completing an Activity Assessment will give you a sense of where you are now and how to begin.

Physical Activity Assessment
Which of the following best describes your general activity level for the previous month?

I do not participate regularly in programmed recreation, sport or heavy physical activity: 0 Avoid walking or exertion, e.g., always use elevator, drive whenever possible instead of walking.
1 Walk for pleasure, routine... read more

STAY  MOTIVATED  !!  The first step is the hardest in becoming more active, but after a few weeks, your fitness routine will become a habit that you'll look forward to during the day However, at times you will need extra encouragement to keep motivated.

*Start off on the right foot by only choosing activities that you actually enjoy.
*Engage in a wide variety of activities to keep workouts interesting.
*Work out with a friend, family member or co-worker. Encourage each other to walk that extra block even on busy mornings.
*Set realistic short- and long-term goals and chart progress every step of the way.
*Reward yourself when you meet fitness goals. For example, treat yourself to a massage, new pair of sneakers or clothes.
*Set aside a particular time to work out during the day so that physical activity becomes a natural part of your routine.
*Vary the location in which you work out. Instead of walking toward the same park every day, do an about... read more
