I’m no exercise nut. However, I did recognize I needed to get more active. Becoming more active helps with more than just weight loss. Be active can help with weight management. It also helps with overall health. So for couch surfers like me here are 5 easy and plus size friendly workout tips.
TIP 1 – Call Your Doctor
Although moderate physical activity such as brisk walking is safe for most people, health experts suggest that you talk to your doctor before you start an exercise program if you have any unlaying health conditions. It’s important to see your personal physicians annually even if you don’t have any medical conditions.
TIP 2 – Be Prepared
Being prepared help with the excuses. Before you even walk out the make sure you have a small bag filled with a few things you’ll need. In my bag, I have things like a water bottle, a clean washcloth, headphones, a backup phone battery and a small snack like a banana or nuts. I also have my insurance card and emergency contact information. All of these things help me avoid the “I need to head back home” excuses.
TIP 3 – Dress Comfortably
I know life is a runway but if you’re trying to get into the swing of things when it comes to working out keep it cute yet comfortable. Plus size workout gear has come a long way. You can find sports bras, leggings, shorts, headbands, there are even hijabs available now.
TIP 4 – Know Your Limit
If you’re not in a race than it’s not a race. Know your personal limits. I’ve workout with friends and they’re pushed me to do what they’re doing. Don’t hurt yourself trying to keep up with someone else. Go at your own pace.
TIP 5 – Be Creative With Your Fitness Routines
Boredom will kill the fitness well. Joining a gym is not a must. Something it can be a waste of money if you’re not going to go consistently. On the other hand, going toa gym that offers different fitness course it a great way to stay engaged with your fitness.
BONUS TIP! Find your personal motivation. I set small fitness goals for myself. Achieving them makes me feel great. What is your fitness motivation?
