Are You Trying to Lose a Few Pounds and Would Like a Program to Help You Out?

Here's What to Do:

Wake up! It's time to start your day. Grab your coffee, take a quick shower, and then turn on the TV. All of that can be done in 10 minutes or less! That's right: you don't even have enough time to work out. But don't worry—it's not your fault that you don't have time for exercise. You've got a lot on your plate these days, which means I'm going to help you out by telling you how to lose weight without having to schedule an appointment at the gym or buy any costly equipment. Ready? Let's get started!

Vary your routine.

Vary your routine.

Don’t do the same thing every day, week, month, year or decade!

Bring a workout buddy.

When you're trying to get fit, it's good to have a workout buddy. Your friend can keep you motivated and encourage you, which is something that's especially helpful for people who are new to exercise. They can also hold you accountable for sticking with your program. And of course, having fun with someone else while working out is much more enjoyable than going solo (and safer too).

Change your workout playlist.

Another aspect of your workout that you want to consider is your music. If you're feeling unmotivated and uninspired, then a good playlist can help you get in the zone. When trying to lose weight, it's important to find songs that match up with whatever intensity level your workout demands. For example, if you're doing high-intensity workouts like Insanity Max:30 (which I highly recommend), then fast-paced music with loud beats would be appropriate. If you're doing a lower-intensity workout like walking on an incline treadmill or elliptical machine, then slower tracks would be more suitable.

A final note about changing up your playlist: make sure not to choose any distracting music! There are some days when I just don't feel like working out and end up listening to loud rock instead of something more motivational like opera (don't judge me). This has led me down several rabbit holes where I've found myself bored with my workout routine because it wasn't challenging enough—not exactly what we want when trying to lose weight!

Keep a fitness journal.

It is important to keep a fitness journal. This will help you keep track of your progress, as well as to identify the things that are working for you and those that aren't. A good journal will have space for you to write down what exercises you did and how they went, as well as space for you to write down how much water or food (and what kind) you consumed during the day. It might also have sections where you can note any other relevant information such as:

  • How your mood was throughout the day

  • Whether or not anything major happened in your life (like meeting an attractive member of the opposite sex)

  • What clothes you wore and whether or not it was too tight or loose for what exercise activities were planned for that particular day

Set small goals.

One of the best ways to stay on track with losing weight is to set small goals. This will help you stay focused and motivated when you get frustrated, because it's easy to lose sight of your progress when you only have a long road ahead of you.

If you set large, vague goals (e.g., "I want to be healthy" or "I want this body"), it's easy for them to become unattainable or meaningless over time. Instead, try setting weekly or even daily goals that are concrete and measurable (e.g., “I will go for a walk every day this week”).

Take photos of yourself.

Take photos of yourself.

One of the most important things you can do is take photos of yourself throughout your journey. This will help you to make a comparison between where you are now and where you want to be, as well as provide motivation along the way. Every morning when I wake up, before I get out of bed, I look at myself in the mirror and tell myself that today is going to be a good day with lots of progress being made towards my goals. If that doesn't work for you then try counting your blessings every night before bed (or during lunch if it works better for your schedule).

Don't compare yourself to others. You have the same amount of time on this Earth as everyone else does so don't waste it trying to see how much better off other people are than yourself; instead focus on improving yourself! After all, who cares what size jeans someone else wears? They're probably just wearing them because they're comfortable anyway!

Reward yourself.

Reward yourself. This can be a great way to keep yourself motivated, as well as make sure you're always trying your best. When you reach a goal, reward yourself with something small like buying a new pair of shoes or taking a nice bath. If you reach a big goal, like losing 100 pounds in 6 months, reward yourself by going on vacation somewhere warm and relaxing (if not necessarily tropical). It's also important to reward yourself for lifetime achievements such as passing high school or college classes or becoming an expert at something difficult like knitting sweaters out of yarn made out of spider silk threads (which is actually possible). Lastly, special occasions may warrant their own rewards too-for example if someone were planning on getting married soon they might want to treat themselves by buying themselves some nice rings before the wedding ceremony even happens so there isn't any stress put on them while they prepare for marriage day!

Do it in front of your TV or computer.

When you're trying to lose weight, it's best to do your work out in front of the TV or computer. Make sure that you are comfortable while doing this because this can help you relax more throughout the process. It's also important to try and do it at the same time each day, as this will increase consistency in your routine. You should also try and make sure that you do not exceed a certain amount of time per day when working out so that you don't overdo it. I recommend trying to work out for between 20-30 minutes each day until reaching your ideal weight goal!


I hope that these tips will be helpful to you as you set out on your weight-loss journey. Remember that the best way to lose weight is by exercising regularly and eating healthy foods in moderation.
