Sticking to a weight loss program can be difficult. Here are 5 easy ways to help you get lean and see results.

Commit With Friends – Find a friend or a group of friends that will be a great support group. Create a pact between you and them to not let each other slip on their goals. By far my most successful weight loss stories are the ones that had a strong support group in the beginning.

Make It Competitive – Whether it’s cold hard cash from a weight loss office pool or just bragging rights at family get-togethers, competition will drive you to see results!

Write it Down – I will say this over and over again, write down your goals and review them daily. Making good decisions starts with having the right mindset. Reviewing your goals often reinforces the big picture and helps you visualize you to see success!

Eliminate Temptations – Get rid of all the junk food in your kitchen and office. The key to sticking to a solid weight loss plan is eliminating the temptations that could bring you down.

Create Daily Routines – Create daily rituals like cooking a healthy dinner or going for a walk at night are good ways to make sure you stay true to your weight loss plan.

Losing weight doesn’t need to be difficult. If you keep things simple by following these tips, you too will see weight loss success!

Using a timer is a great way to keep yourself honest while working out on your own. Here’s how… There are a few great timer apps for the IOS and Android devices that can help make your workouts rock. For iOS the ‘Bit Timer‘ is pretty good as well as ‘Seconds Pro‘. For Android the ‘Stopwatch & Timer‘ app is really popular. There is plenty of similar apps but these are the ones that stick out. I personally use Seconds Pro on the iPad for my workouts. All of these apps give you the ability to set up your intervals exactly the way you want them. So it makes it really easy to customize your workout. The best part you can just start the timer and you don’t have to touch it until after your workout. Every app will vary on how you set it up, but they all seemed pretty simple when I was testing them. For runners and cyclists, you can use the timer app and listen to music at the same time. You can use the audio cues from the timer to indicate when to sprint and when to walk. This makes it great way for getting your interval workouts outside without the need to keep an eye on your watch! Setting up your workout is easy, just pick few exercises that you can do in a timed set. At least you should include a cardio exercise (jogging in place), a core exercise (situps) and a rest or isometric exercise (planks) to give you a chance to catch your breath. If you really want to turn up the intensity forget the rest and keep going all the way through! Try these two simple interval workouts with your timer! 10 Minute Basic Interval Workout Do Each exercise for 30 seconds, complete 4 rounds. Jog-ups on a step or box (or jog in place) Jumping Jacks Mountain Climbers Situps Rest 15 Minute Core Interval Workout Do each exercise for 45 seconds High Knees Squats Bicycle Crunches Plank to Hands Plank Working out is all about keeping it simple and having the right tools. With a simple timer app on your phone, you can get an awesome workout! Sami-jo rocking the timer! If you like this post you’ll LOVE this one: 5 Easy Ways To Stick To A Weight Loss Plan [...]
