Tips on Health/Fitness

If there’s one thing I’m comfortable saying about myself, it’s that I’m fit and healthy. I’ve got all sorts of medical documentation to prove it. In the many years I’ve spent maintaining my health, here are a few things I’ve learned:

DON’T go on a diet.
DO change the way you eat.

DON’T do a cleanse.
DO avoid cleanses at all costs.
Seriously, don’t ever do a cleanse.

DON’T worry about missing a day at the gym.
DO make sure that one day doesn’t turn into one month.

DON’T think of health or fitness as something you can achieve.
DO think of health or fitness as something you have to maintain.

DON’T keep doing a workout you hate.
DO try everything so you can find those workouts you love.

DON’T do the same thing every day.
DO change your routine frequently.

DON’T believe anyone who tells you it’s possible to lose X pounds in X days by doing/eating “this one thing.”
DO understand that fitness is a combination of many things to be done consistently.

DON’T try to get in shape in one day or month.
DO understand that fitness takes time and dedication.

DON’T forget that pain is an important way your body communicates with you.
DO learn the difference between soreness and injury.

DON’T completely deprive yourself of the unhealthy foods you love.
DO make your favorite unhealthy foods a rare treat or reward.

DON’T set one goal and myopically focus on it to the exclusion of all else.
DO constantly review and revise your goals based on your current level of fitness.

DON’T weigh yourself every day.
DO weigh yourself weekly if it’s a necessary part of tracking your progress.

DON’T punish yourself for not reaching your goals.
DO recognize the gains you’ve made.

DON’T be fooled into thinking that fitness is a way to extend your life.
DO understand that fitness is a key to a better quality of life.

If there’s one thing you take away from this, remember that fitness is not an activity. It is a lifestyle.
