There is no such thing as a bad time to start living healthier and getting in shape. The spring is a fantastic time to get outdoors, enjoy the weather, and put some spring in your step. The question then becomes: where to start? Here a couple of things you can do.
Train for an event. Working towards improving your body for an event such as a 5K or a marathon can make it easier to set up smaller short term goals and feel like you’re making progress along the way. The variety of events such as a triathlon can also be a way to keep things fresh so that you don’t burn yourself out doing the same routine.
Make a workout schedule. Speaking of triathlons, you don’t necessarily need a coach to get started. As an alternative, create a plan that will allow you to work out every day knowing exactly what you plan to do. Choosing to work out when you get around to it will derail your fitness goals and you’ll find yourself making excuses to skip sessions.
Eat well and stay away from the scale. At the beginning, you’re probably going to gain weight versus losing it as the body adds muscle mass. Don’t focus on the numbers so much at the beginning and make sure you’re eating healthy, especially if you’re aiming for a big event.
