Let’s try to set up process goals this year and have fun with them!

Yes, it is a new year and it is time to re-check your fitness goal.

Although it is nice to reach your target weight, or manage to run a first 10 K race, if you did not achieved the fitness goal you setup last year, maybe you want to set a different type of fitness goal this year; a “process” fitness goal. Instead of losing 10 pounds, you set your goal to be to work out 3 times a week and eat healthy food.

Although people do different types of cross fitness training, the idea behind it is always the same: doing various types of workouts intensely in a short time is much better than moderate but long single-type exercises.

Most people have their favorite workouts. Women tend to stick to a cardio workout, and men tend to stick to weight training. Some people love Yoga and others love swimming. Whatever you do, as long as you move your body, you are benefiting your body and your brain. Even your offspring two generations down will get benefits from your workout!

“Exercise snacks” before meals are much better than one continuous moderate workout to control your blood sugar level.

More and more articles about the deadly effects of a sedentary lifestyle are reported in newspapers and magazines. Many scientific studies agree that even if you work out, if you sit a long time each day, the workout does not negate the bad effect of the sedentary lifestyle. In some sense, it is hype rather than scare tactics intended to make people buy more things (such as standing desks), but we can’t deny the results that many scientists are finding.

Think of Working Out as Fun

If you enjoy workout, you get more healthy benefit. Enjoy whatever you are doing. If you are healthy, you can enjoy your life more and you will be happier.

Most of us know that exercises are good for our body and we must do them if we want to be healthy. Unfortunately this mentality of “must” makes exercise seem like a burden in our life, not something we can enjoy. If you think of exercise as some sort of chore, even if you workout, your mind won’t be there fully and you will workout less efficiently. As a consequence, you won’t get the result you want and you will be further discouraged. Eventually you will stop working out entirely. This is not good; we really need to enjoy whatever we are doing.
