1. Have a routine but don’t do the same thing everyday.
I like having a routine, but I also need variety. If I were to run in the mornings every single day I’d probably get sick of it and eventually stop out of boredom.

Our bodies take time to adapt to new training regimens, but after that they need to be challenged in new ways if we want to keep progressing forward with our fitness. So come up with a new plan that you can commit to every 4-8 weeks.

An athletes guide to fending off the flu and keeping the whole body healthy

For the most part, exercise keeps the immune system healthy. In most cases, the average exerciser with a routine that consists of short bouts of moderate-intensity exercise has a stronger immune system than someone who is mostly sedentary.

Fit Tip: Toss the Gloss!
And by gloss, I mean all of the glossy covered magazines that promise to help you “Drop 2 Dress Sizes in a Day" and "Blast that Belly Fat for Good!" Really? For good? If it’s for good, then how come we’re reading some variation of that same sentence on the cover of every issue?
Maybe you don’t even have to ditch magazines completely, just take the advice they offer with a grain of salt. If you read about a workout plan or diet tip that works for you, make it a part of your plan and stick to it! Most magazines are marketing diet and exercise methods as quick fixes. But guess what? There’s no such thing!
Change takes hard work and dedication. Not 20 minutes & 1 week of eating the “Best Belly Bloat Blasting Foods!”
Also, stop comparing yourself to the Photoshopped celebrities and models on the cover!
