31 August, 2009

Hi there,

It's me Svetlana.

In my last post I promised to talk about how to make sure your new status of a habitual exerciser sticks with you for life, in other words, once you became one, you never ever be a couch potato again. Here were come to rules of thumb #5 (never drop below your basic minimum), #6 (start low and go slow), and #7 (change your routine frequently).

Rule of thumb #5: never drop below your basic absolute minimum.

Fitness for lazy and frugal. Part 2. General rules to follow.

30 August 2009

Hi there!
It's me Svetlana.

In my privious post I was planning to tell you how to change your self-perception to a one of a habitual exerciser. How do you stop thinking of yourself as a couch potato and start thinking about yourself as a habitual exerciser? Definitely not by sitting on the couch and repeating out loud, "I am an athlete".

Rule of thumb #3: think of yourself as a regular exerciser, and you will become one. You are what you think of yourself. This principle is universal, it applies to every single aspect of life. In fact, this is probably the best self-improvement tool a human being posesses. I am planning to elaborate on the role of power of mind in weight loss and meintenence in my later posts. When it comes to habitual exercise, you literally become what you think of yourself.

Fitness for lazy and frugal. How to become a habitual exerciser: easy way.

29 August 2009.


Hi there!
It's me Svetlana.

I would like to start with the second most painful question we ask ourselves: how to begin EXERCISE REGULARLY (the most painful question we ask ourselves is how to stop eating too much)? Let me make it simple. If you reading this, you probably are NOT an exercise addicts. This is OK. This is very normal and very common, not to exercise at all. But the simple truth is: exercise, some form of it, some movement rather than none, is vitally important. In a short run some form of physical activity will make you stronger, improve mood and self-esteem, and in a long run it may prolong life, and make old years more functional and happy. Getting old sucks enough, but getting old being immobile, disabled, depressed, and in pain sucks all the way. So, the rule of thumb #1: some kind of physical activity, moving around is vitally important.
