Are Your Love-Hate Relationship With Exercise Making You Fat? You Need These Reality Check!

Yay! I did full body workouts for 3 days in a row and plan to be consistent. For some people, this is nothing to brag about. I knew some people running up to 12K. But for me, this is consider big. I manage to drag my lazy fat butt to exercise. I eat pretty clean all this week but I'm still learning every day, trying to improve my diet. That two are my NSV this week.

I am constantly blaming my love for food to not exercise. I think exercising will makes no difference if I keep eating. But a weight loss bet with my diet buddy is a motivation for me to do exercise. I am not too familiar with the DietBet game, but we do something similar to that. We are going to report our progress this end of April and we must lose at least 3kg or the loser will have to pay $25 to the winner. If we both reach the goal, then it will be 0-0 draw.

Do you make excuses for not exercising? I read Dave Nuku's points of view on Shape magazine on ways to beat those most common excuses once and for all, and glad to share with you. Dave Nuku is the regional fitness manager at Fitness First.

Excuse #1 - You love food very much. You thought, exercising will makes no difference if you keep eating.
Answer: Exercise always makes a huge difference to your health and elevate your mood immediately no matter your diet is bad or not. Balanced healthy diet and exercise is a winning combination, but even if you can do only one, it's worth doing.

Excuse #2 - You really hate exercising.
Answer: No one is born loving exercise. Start small, and find activities that you like — cycling, walking the dog, or badminton. If you like doing something, you'll keep doing it. Give yourself a chance.

Excuse #3 - You're too tired to work out at the end of the day
Answer: It's normal to not workout all the time. The key to being a consistent exerciser is to turn up at the gym without expectation on yourself to work out hard. Some workouts will be just average, and some will be incredible. But if you are consistent, you will achieve your goals.
