What the health: Part 6 – Lame excuses continued


This is part 6 of ‘What the health’ series. You can find earlier parts here – part1, part2, part3, part4,  part 5

  1. It hurts my body

If you have never worked out then yes, it would hurt for the first few days. But go past that and then you would get addicted to that ‘good’ pain. Stretch before and after a workout, get a massage once in a while, soak in warm water with Epsom salt.

  1. Exercise make me more hungry

Yes! That happens. The best solution to that is have a protein shake right after your workout and have a lot of healthy snacks – fruits, salads, nuts. Munch on them every 2 hours even if you are NOT hungry.

  1. I don’t know where to start

That’s fine. Just start with walking for 30 mins, do yoga at home, what helps the most is joining classes – you pay for it so you show up and then it is easier to work out in a group of people…the atmosphere keeps you motivated.

  1. I am already skinny (thin)

A lot of people are skinny on the outside and have unhealthy fat reserves inside, some are skinny and have no energy to do anything, you can be thin but chances are you are not fit … so exercise and eat healthy home cooked food!

I hope this helps and gives you a kick in the butt… exercise today if you haven’t already.
