Body Weight in Pounds and Getting There
There are so many factors that come into play when it comes to weight and the kind of weight you are carrying. Your body is all about fat, muscle and water and in turn something has to happen inside if you feel you are too overweight and want a change.
- You should live a moderately active life with the bulk of your diet coming from whole foods! (Any food that exclusively comes from nature.)
- Staying consistent with a active work out plan like walking, running, aerobics, yoga, palates and swimming.
- If you are having a quality work out session at least 3 separate hours/week you are probably pretty close to your ideal weight.
So keep up those quality workouts and you will find your ideal weight in pounds in no time!
What is a good quality work out so I reach my ideal weight?
It is a work -out that feels good and you feel in tune with. It is a work out that has you aligned nicely with yourself, where you can think freely and enjoy your surroundings. So you do it often because you love it!
After you are done the work out it feels good! You feel refreshed and can take on your day feeling pretty much in the same way you left your workout.
You will know you have had a good quality work out when you feel these feelings.
- workouts, but do a little more...
- A little more of running or another sport
- a little more parking far away from the store
- more standing and walking.
- Just keep moving!
