Every day I get up from my bed and look into my mirror and feel oh god what if my tummy reduced to some inches. I travel on the tram and I begin to compare myself to the person next to me and I feel. Oh is she more slim than me and the journey of thoughts never seemed to end. The reason being I used to be 100 pounds when I graduated and now I have gained an extra 50 pounds. Ever since Kiera was born I gained a wobbling 20 pounds more and as the days pass by the situation seems to be getting out of control. Well actually the problem here is that I can’t digest the fact that I now fall under the obese category. Deep within me there is still that slim college going teenage girl. Now that there is no time for me to follow any fitness regime, I am wondering what to do. But all I know is that I am going to be slim someday and I am going to be the fittest person on earth. But what is fitness and what are the things I need to do to remain fit?

Let’s explore these ideas in detail. Well fitness is actually the ability to perform physical activity. You can inch closer to being healthy by developing your fitness even to a teeny weeny bit. So actually it is not about having a thin waist or bulging muscles. It is a combination of qualities that enable us to be at our full potential in performing vigorous physical activities. If you are fit, then you might have immense energy to play with your kids, cycle, and jog or do gardening. Actually you will be able to burn more calories even at rest if you have fitness in you. Did you know that being physically fit and being healthy are not the same? A healthy person need not be physically fit. You could try out aerobic activities which are all about how efficiently the body makes use of oxygen. Aerobic activities are nothing but cycling, jogging, taking a brisk walk, sailing or surfing, ballroom dancing, and swimming. The reason why we do aerobics is to increase the oxygen going to the heart and muscles. But hey buddy you have to be regular in your workouts and this way you will definitely be able to increase your fitness.

Unless you work out intensively you can’t shed off those extra pounds that you gained after stopping an exercise routine. No matter what your age, size or fitness level is remember, there is always an exercise that will suit you so try and get to the core as to what sort of exercise suits you the best. You don’t have to bottleneck your choices to the conventional gyms or classes; instead you could plan a hiking trip or join a marathon. The secret is to fall in love with exercising. It’s good to start your exercise by walking and gradually increasing the miles with time. Inside the gym, join with a buddy who shares the same interests as you as that can be a great way to stay motivated. Once you are in the groove then forget about everyone else because everyone will be sweaty and red just like you. You could also read the success stories of people who have lost weight by exercising.

Exercising is definitely one of the ways to stay fit. As you grow older there will definitely be a time when you will feel that you could have been fitter, so you have to be smart in choosing what you eat and drink as well. Try adopting good life style practices. Stop smoking and avoid abstain from drinking alcohol. Smoking is terrible for the body and you will not be able to work out. Drinking in turn damages your liver and your energy levels. When you work out and eat a balanced diet, things are bound to fall into place. I make use of the Dish TV Packages and watch a lot of programs on TV related to fitness to keep me motivated. I am sure you will discover your fitness secret as well. As Laird Hamilton, a champion surfer rightly said- Each of us is our own greatest inhibitor. And, at the end of the day, if you just get out of your own way and let things come to you, it's amazing what will come to you.
