Getting back in shape is not every ones favorite topic to talk about and let alone do. The rumors have always hovered around people’s heads about bad cholesterol and heart problems, which are indeed caused from a poor exercise lifestyle and diet. I am a young man in college that loves the outdoors and I grew up around sports that include basketball, football, baseball etc. However, just because I enjoyed those sporting events when I was young does not mean that I stayed in shape when I got older even though I am skinny. So do not assume that just because some ones body structure is firmer than yours does not mean that they are in shape. So workout and accomplish your goal and don’t worry about everyone else. There are resources all around you probably are unaware of it but help that you have always been looking for is standing all around you. In your community there are local parks that have outdoor events that you can be apart of and indoor events like swimming. Here are three helpful tips to get your body structure that you have been only dreaming about. One, change your fast food eating to nutritional foods. Two, create a workout diagram and follow it. Finally, get a partner that has the same goal as you to motivate each other.
So far in my community I have started at home first to motivate my family about a healthy lifestyle that can benefit our relationship in the future. The healthier my family is, the more that I can be with them when we all grow older and prudent together. Then, I went to my church and sat down with some of the members and took surveys on their way of living. Quite a few of them had some things in common. Growing up in an African American family, there is not much healthy eating because of the expansive Sunday dinners of fried foods and on weekdays include those left over’s and microwave dinners for work. After observing my surveys and great feedbacks, they were recipients of my easy to follow healthy way of living brochure. This brochure displays a variety of examples of how many calories you should be eating and drinking to maintain your weight. One key that I stress as far as diets go is not to eat more calories than you can burn off. Here are just two examples of what you can eat in the morning. From Monday through Wednesday they can wake up early before their normal time of getting up and walk the dog around the neighborhood approximately three times. On Thursday and Friday they can jump rope for fifteen minutes and then they can do dips, pushups and sit ups/ crunches. The main goal is to accommodate at least thirty minutes of physical activity during the week. When they return to the house on Mondays through Wednesday they can make breakfast that includes a bagel, cereal, yogurt and orange juice. (Same breakfast every morning on those assigned days) On Thursday and Friday, the breakfast consists of a nutrigram bar, water, fruit and eggs with grits. When their days is over from work and have returned home, they can do a couple body weight squats, pushups and calf raises. Then, when it is time for dinner they can eat fish at least twice a week that helps lower the risk of artery disease. Some other recommendations include choosing lean meats and when you cook, reducing the foods containing partially hydrogenated vegetable oils to reduce Tran’s fat in your diet. On the weekends they can jog at the park and maybe even ride their bike or they can possibly play a game of basketball.
Their meal will include a salad, baked chicken, rice and broccoli. The best way to find out the progress of the participants is to know where they stay and explain the project to their neighbors and generously see if they see any improvement. Another way that I can measure the progress of this project is to you telephone communication with all of the participants that agreed to follow these simple instructions. The checkup includes a phone call every other day to see if they have been people of their words. We can only save one life at a time. When those results are in and I see progress then, the project will spread out even the more to the community by word of mouth of these life changing results.
This project will first build in my home, church and then the whole community will enjoy the wonderful festivities of being fit at the Life Changers Total Body Fitness Center. This course is a three month process. The first month is designed to train your body to new lifestyle. The second month is when you will start seeing results. The third month is designed to make this lifestyle a habit. I will use other people to help me build this project by way of advertisement of a website and commercials. In order to get the website, it’s a low price of two hundred dollars or more. The commercials are more expensive because a thirty second ad starts at less than $500.
