Walk Away The Pounds!

People who are fit are not just magically fit, they have to work to keep their fit bodies. Here are a few things that fit people do that can help you become a fit person, too!

1. Sleep and wake up naturally in the morning
Fit people fall asleep easily at night because they make sure they are active during the day. They also can wake up naturally in the morning without the use of an alarm clock because they put their bodies on a schedule.

2. Exercise in the morning
Fit people normally exercise in the morning because it will help make them feel energized and powerful all throughout the day! They always make sure exercising is on their schedule, rather than trying to fit exercise in sometime during the day, they know when they will exercise.

3. Use positive self-talk
Instead of saying they are "fat" or "lazy," they workout and say things like they are "strong" and "powerful." Being positive will help them feel strong, and therefore they work hard and will get the strong body the want.

4. Rebound from setbacks
A fit person will occasional slip up and miss a workout, or eat a piece of cake, but instead of beating themselves up about it, they just go back to their schedule the next day. They won't let one setback ruin all the hard work they have put in to get their fit body.

5. Set and accomplish goals
Fit people set realistic goals, and keep them in mind as they train. They will keep working hard towards this goal until they achieve it, and then they set a new one. For example, their goal could be to go down a dress size, and then once they achieve that, their new goal could be to train for a marathon.

Start doing these things; and you will become a fit person too!

@ 8:10pm ET on June 12, 2008 I love doing my cardio in the morning, I perform at my best then and enjoy my day more knowing that it's done. Otherwise it hangs over me all day like a dark cloud. Thanks for the great tips!!
@ 7:46am ET on June 13, 2008 You could apply these principles to almost anything and have success! I find if I don't do whatever it is that needs to be done in the morning, I end up saying, 'forget it.' I've transitioned myself into a morning person and feel better overall for it. Thank you for these tips though, simple and helpful.
@ 10:38am ET on June 13, 2008 I love doing your 3 mile power walk in the morning before work. It revs up my whole day. I then am on my feet all day at work and when i come home i do it all over again. I am finding that its less hard on my feet then walking a few miles outside.
