Is it important to start a weight loss routine and why should you start your own weight loss routine?
Yes, it is very important to start your own weight loss routine because having a routine will help you stay on track and you will know when you haven’t been keeping to your routine because it will be gnawing at you whenever you miss a day.
It is a reminder to do what you need to do to lose weight and gain the ideal pound you deserve.
Reasons you should start your own weight loss routine
There are numerous reasons you MUST START YOUR OWN WEIGHT LOSS ROUTINE and in this post we are going to highlight some of the most pressing ones…
and they are…
1. Keeps you motivated
When you have a routine you drummed up yourself without my help or the help of any other person, you feel motivated and in charge.
And this will motivate you immensely.
Once you begin to follow this routine carefully, you will feel like you can do anything and accomplish whatever you damn wish.
You feel empowered.
The truth is that trying to discipline and dedicate yourself to losing weight is a herculean task that one would rather put off until the doctors recommend it to us.
That is why you feel mighty when you take your own initiative to start a weight loss program and stick to it no matter what.
This motivation will not just be about weight loss anymore, it will also become about every other part of your life because your enthusiasm and motivation from what you have accomplished will begin to seep into other areas of your life.
And this is a good thing.
2. It keeps you accountable
Because of your routine, and if you have written it down on a sheet of paper as one of your daily gols:) – which I highly recommend – it keeps you accountable.
Whenever you miss a routine you feel guilty, you see that sheet of paper on your night stand or your fridge taunting you.
And if you should dare to quit, you will feel shitty.
This is being said out of experience.
I have set some gols out for myself and whenever I don’t fulfill my own end of the bargain, I feel a little bit shitty and unhappy with myself.
This is how it happens.
But if you think or know that a piece of paper cannot make you guilty, then by all means I think you should get an accountability partner.
Someone who will make sure you do what you have to do to lose weight.
If you have the budget for it, you can hire a personal trainer.
Some of those guys are beasts.
They will definitely help with the accountability thing and keep you focused on your gols.
3. You lose weight
This is meant to be the number one reason but I decided to start with your mentality before we go into the physical stuff.
The main reason you have started this routine in the first place is to lose weight, right?
And that is one benefit of starting this routine…
This obviously is self explanatory.
4. You reduce the risk of heart disease
When you start making exercising a daily habit in your life, the probability that you will suffer from any type of heart disease will be super low.
How can this be?
And these type of workouts help you reduce fat.
How does exercising help lower your risk of heart disease?
5. You have control over your weight
Because you have chosen to start this weight loss routine, you control your weight.
How much you wish to weight is completely up to you and this is power.
In life there are just so many things that are beyond our control and once we are able to control a part of our lives, it gives us a little peace of mind.
So if you are in control of your weight, you have one less thing to really worry about.
I said REALLY WORRY ABOUT because even if it is something we have control over, we still worry.
It’s in our human DNA.
You will still worry that you have added one or two pounds but you are also rest assured that you will drop that shit in no time…
Maybe in a day even.
That’s control everyone needs in their lives.
6. It improves your mental and brain health
Exercises, especially when done daily improves not just your overall health, it also helps you mental and brain health.
If you are a student or you have a job where you may have to function at a high brain capacity, daily workout is a MUST.
Because when you workout or exercise everyday, your heart pumps blood faster and therefore your brain gets more oxygenated blood and this helps your brain function far better than usual.
Therefore, if you would like to improve your brain capacity, I recommend you start a daily workout routine as this will help you out a lot.
7. You gain discipline
Doing something that is hard everyday, at the same time, in the same manner will undoubtedly need some form of extreme discipline on your part.
Even I have fallen short sometimes and I pick myself up again and continue.
It’s okay if you miss a day every now and then.
The point is that you do this everyday.
If you manage to do at least three times a week, you are fine.
Doing this will help you gain some sort of discipline in your life and this will also seep into your personal and work life.
You start becoming more productive and attentive
And you do better i all areas of your life.
Try it and see.
When you see some results, come back here and tell me how it happened in the comment section.
I am always happy to get your feedback.
8. Boosts your energy levels
If you are not new to exercising daily, I’m sure you must have noticed how much energy you seem to have when you workout.
It’s like a natural drug.
Exercise gives you some kind of energy for your everyday work, especially when you do your routine in the morning…
It sets you up for the rest of the day with lots of energy.
And if you are considering taking up a workout routine, you will do well because of the energy you get.
You will notice that you no longer get tired in the afternoons at your workplace because the adrenaline will be flowing inside your bloodstream and you will be like a worker on steroids…
It’s freaking awesome.
Try it and get back to me with your findings.
9. Improves your skin
I am no skin expert but I do know that when you workout/exercise, you open up your pores when you sweat and that helps your skin.
Also, exercising daily helps improve blood circulation, and helps to deliver oxygen and nutrients to the skin which keeps the skin healthy, promotes collagen production, and promotes new skin cells which keeps the skin looking glowing and is also helpful for anti-aging.(4)
10. Improves your mood all day
There’s something about an early morning workout that just seem to raise your mood all day.
If you want to be happy all day, start working out in the morning.
It has a way of improving your mood all day.
What’s the ideal weight loss routine?
How can you start your own weight loss routine?
This is mine below and you can use it if you have the time but if you don’t you can shift things around to fit your schedule.
- I wake up at 5am
- Meditate for twenty minutes because it is simply not enough to exercise the body, you should also exercise the mind and meditation is the way to go.
- So some anaerobic exercises like weight lifts, pushups, situps and the likes. This is to increase strength. It is not compulsory for you to do this. If you have the time, this is where you go out running.
- Rub for at least thirty minutes if you are just starting out. If you have more time you can increase the time to one hour.
- Then you are ready for the day.
- Go out and conquer.
Because I work from home, I usually have enough time to go out in the evening, from 5pm to 7pm to play soccer.
I love soccer.
But I’m guessing you may not have that kind of time on your hans because of work and other responsibilities you may have.
That is why you should make it a point to wake up as early as you can and get this out of the way by running for about thirty minutes everyday to give you the adrenaline boost you need to kick that day’s ass.
You have seen why it is important to have your own weight loss routine and also you have seen a simple template you could copy to start your own weight loss routine.
You can use this template for yourself or you can adapt it to fit your schedule.
Either way, it is important you start your own weight loss routine as soon as possible so that you can get all the incredible benefits of exercising daily.
