PLF Exercise Tips

  • Before you start an exercise program, you should see your doctor for a full physical, if you haven't had one already.
  • If you are a beginner, you want to be sure to take it slow. You don't want to get injured or burn out too quickly. Start with 3 days a week and work your way up.
  • Find a workout buddy. I train harder when I am working out with a friend than when I am by myself. Also when you have a friend to work out with, you are more accountable not to skip out on your workout.
  • Set achievable goals. Setting a weight loss goal can be discouraging at times. Instead set task goals like- Attend a yoga class this week or 30 minutes of cardio, 3x per week. Reward yourself (not with food) when you achieve your goal with things like a massage, pedicure, etc.
  • Squeeze in extra activity by taking the stairs whenever possible, when running errands park further in the parking lot, or schedule 5-10 minutes to stand up and stretch during your work day.
  • Prepare for you workout the day or night before. Pack your gym back ahead of time to minimize excuses.
  • Be sure to eat 5-6 meals and snacks throughout the day so your blood sugar levels are balance and you aren't so hungry that you want to skip out on your workout.
  • Buy yourself a cute workout outfit. When you look good, you feel good.
  • Have fun! There are so many different options to exercise, find something you like. From dancing to cycling to yoga, if you are having a good time, it will become a lifestyle change.
