TIP: Keep a food/fitness diary and track what you eat and what exercise you do. Looking back on it will prove to you what you can achieve and how far you have come.
Although your diet is huge 70% of your goals, the other 30% is exercise. Exercising not only controls your weight, combats health conditions and diseases but also boosts your mood and energy. Physical activity stimulates various brain chemicals that leave you feeling happier, more relaxed and boots your confidence and self-esteem. With all these factors, why would you want to change yourself for the better? We all know it’s hard to find the will power to make big changes in our lives but that’s where Operation transformation comes in. With the programme lasting 7 weeks that’s gives you a great start to transform your lifestyle.
TIP: exercising doesn’t have to be a chore, make it fun! Get a friend or relative on board to support you and take Zumba classes or join a local boot camp. Register online with Operation Transformation to track the leaders and help followers with your tips and tricks on your progress! Good luck!
