I've been asked in a few messages (no, I'm not going to out you here) about fitness and bike riding and such. Being an average person here in the U.S., that for far too long took my health for granted, ate too much, got too large etc., had an extreme wake-up call and now do little things that are helping me get to where I want to be and stay there, I guess I do have a few ideas on the subject.
For those who don't know the story about how Team Tugg came about, I may share that on a future post/note one day... but I digress.
So, while I was thinking about some of the answers to those question, I watched as a post from one of my friends, Chris, down in Austin scrolled across my feed with his fitness tip of the day. (BTW, Chris is awesome both at his work for a famous cancer-beating charity and with all the other things he does! Just sayin')
Of course! That's the answer! I could share with you - all my friends - various fitness tips for real people in the real world (since that's what most of the questions and thoughts alluded to in my messages, and since I am a real person in the real world too). SO, from time to time, I'm going to share a few fitness thoughts on here for you to have a go at, or at least think about. Let me know what you think!
Without further ado, here is the first installment of Team Tugg fitness tip of the moment:
Hopefully, we all know that loosing weight, no matter what program or diet plan you may go on, is only accomplished by burning more calories than you take in. No you don't need to buy a new book about dieting to help you do that, because I can sum them all up here with this formula: Eat right. Drink lots of water. Exercise an hour a day or more. Repeat 5-6 times a week.
But, all that may not be as easy or as hard as it sounds. Let's start with some little things while keeping with the formula I just said. Start here - Take a hard, honest look at all you consume between 7 p.m. and sleep, think of it as your diet danger zone. As for eating right, we'll get to that later, but most people know what is good or bad for them. Sometimes you have to make choices.
One more thought about calories in this first, turning into a really long post about a fitness tip, about burning calories. If you don't enjoy something, it won't last, so here is a great way to see how many calories you burn doing various activities from work to exercise. Here's the details, plus many more exercise categories at the bottom of the page:http://calorielab.com/burned/?mo=se&gr=11&ti=Occupation&wt=150&un=lb&kg=68 —
