This covers a very large spectrum, but in the end it all comes down to one thing; BEING ACTIVE. How active you should be will all depend on want results you want and how fast you want it. Do you want a muscles? Do you want rock-hard abbes? Do you want chiseled arms and hard, toned back-side? If this is what you want then you are someone that should have a gym membership. Now don't get me wrong, this is absolutely fine. Remember is said, this blog in intended to motivate and help get people to their perfect weight and if that description above is what you want and will be comfortable with then go for it.

For most of us including myself, this is truely not necessary. For some people, just generally getting in shape and staying in shape is all they want. Now when it comes to exercise there is not a lot you actually have to do to achieve this. Before you start interpreting that as "go to work, use the stairs instead of the elevator" and you're being active, let me just say IT IS NOT. On the other hand, I also don't want you to think that you have to start doing a million things differently either.  Think of it this way; you are begining to LIVE an ACTIVE LIFE.

Ok, lets get down to it.


Walk more. When I say this I don't mean that you have to start going on mile-long walks everyday. What I mean is you should start to incorperate more walking into your life. Remember that little elevator reference I made earlier, that's one little thing right there. Let's say your sister lives two blocks down, don't take the car, walk. Find those little instances where you can swap your ride for your very own legs and in process try to find something about doing it the old fashion way that you enjoy. Something that you will by doing it anyother way. This will encourage to keep doing the one-step-two-step.

For those of us who have kids, there is no better form of exercise than just simply getting in there and playing with them. This is one of those things that even if you're not able to do it constantly or for very long periods, you feel great doing it just for the mere fact that you are doing it with your kids and bringing a smile to their faces. In return you tend to be motivated to do it more often. So get into their little backyard football matches, tag or whatever they do.


Doing all these little things and making them enjojable along the way, you'd be surprised to see how much calories you will burn without even knowing it. With all of this in mind you can really start to see that being an active person really means to just start living your life and enjoying thethings and people around you.

In my next post we will be talking about diet as a part as our lifestyle.
