My Health and Fitness Rules – Exercising

To repeat, I’m one of the few individuals who manage to lose weight and stay fit.

How I do it? I’ve mentioned my eating rules in my previous post, here are some of my workout rules. Again, you don’t have to follow, but if you do, you’re likely to benefit in one way or another.

In fact, my eating rules and workout rules in some perspectives are quite consistent. Let’s see.

1. Morning Exercise
An apple everyday keeps doctors away. My ‘apple’ is the exercises that I do in the first 20 minutes of every morning. It does not keep me away from doctors permanently, but once I started, I didn’t see my doctor for two years. I have been doing this for many years. If you want to minimize your medical bill, try it.

2. Natural Exercise
I eat fresh and natural. Likewise, I workout naturally.

I have a gym membership, but I go there mainly to use the pool. I won’t do treadmills or row a stationary boat. That’s too boring. Instead I do jogging in a park or rowing a real boat. You see what I mean.

Enjoy a natural breeze and breathe well in the nature while working out.

3. Concentration
Seriously, have you ever read or watch TV while doing any exercise at your luxury gym? If so, you're not concentrating enough on what you're doing, plus you're probably not working out hard enough to see any real results. You won’t talk on a mobile phone while swimming, will you? Do exercise that requires your full attention and you’ll see real results. Here is a very insightful article on this topic: Do You Really Need Cardio?

4. Do What You Enjoy To Do
Do you enjoy jogging or playing hula hoop? Personally, I enjoy playing hula hoop more than jogging, though both exercise spent the same amount of calories. I also enjoy swimming, so I do both exercises alternatively. I’m never tired of the exercises that I do. Because I only do whatever I enjoy to do. See how much fun I am having. You will only stick to doing something that you enjoy and continue doing it. If you don’t, you’ll soon quit.

5. Do It Over The Long Run
How often do you do exercise? Once a week for a couple of hours or 3 x 30 minutes per week? Both are fine, provided you don’t do it for a month and quit. If you do it for a month or so, it’s just better than not doing. Want to see the real results that your workout contribute to your health and weight loss, you must do it over the long run. I have been doing morning exercise over the past 20 years and I’m sure I won’t give up. Likewise for my weekly 3 x 30 which I started 10 years ago.

Finally, my two golden rules for health and fitness are:

Rule #1: Eat Less
Rule #2: Workout More

Eating Rule: 2 Meal Solution and Eat Stop Eat
Workout Rule: Truth About Abs and Workout Without Weight
