Every time I used to diet I got grouchy. Real cranky.
Man, was I fed up with not being able to lose weight. Ive tried everything. Every new diet that comes out, every new exercise fad, I am on it. The problem is, I get bored, I stop doing it and I fall off the wagon over and over again.
So what is the answer? My friend of many years, Mike, told me the secret to losing weight with exercise is to do something fun and exciting. Do something, he says, that you will want to do, not something you have to do. Find that something and you will exercise every day and it wont feel like exercise. Sounds good to me.
I began with some classes at the local gym. Good stuff, I can tell you from first hand experience. The instructor was young and fit and very energetic. She got us all pumped up and ready to work out! Afterwards I felt sore and tired of course, but during the class I had energy I havent had in years. I couldnt believe it. The thing is though, I am not all that into to going to the gym. I like having privacy and staying at home. The problem is how to get motivated by myself?
Then I found out about cardio kickboxing DVDs available. For a few weeks, I did it three times a week. I felt fantastic. Never felt better and I could not believe how easily I was losing weight. After about a month, my pants starting falling off! I had to get a tighter belt, I can tell you that much. A whole new wardrobe was on the way and I was not complaining.
After two months people did not recognize me anymore. I would see people I hadnt seen for a while and they were like, who are you? It was a great feeling, that is for sure. All my hard work was paying off. So how does kickboxing work so well when most other ways of losing weight dont?
Well, you see, cardio kickboxing uses every muscle in your body all the time. I know I felt muscles I did not even know I had after the first few days. It was incredible. The more muscle you use, the more calories you burn and the faster your body starts to transform into a lean mean machine like mine did.
Another thing is that it is fun to do. My buddy Mike was right. If you find something you like to do, you are more likely to do it consistently. I started gaining more confidence and that led to more results. Each fed into the other, results breeding confidence and vice-versa.
So if you are like me and are fed up with all the same old stuff at the gym, try getting your hands on a DVD that can be fun and give you results. My body and outlook on working out will never be the same.
