Working out doesn't have to be drudgery. It can actually be very fun. I hope you can find something here that will help make achieving your fitness goals a simpler and more enjoyable process.
Follow your dreams...
I have suffered tremendously from mental illness. For many years I have read extensively on how to get me better, physically, mentally and socially. I give you some of that knowledge here on this website.
Mental illness is a nightmare. It rips apart your life and is one of the most difficult things to endure on this planet. There were days when I didn't know if I was going to make it. And it makes you feel so horribly alone, even when you are surrounded by friends and family.
With the onset of my disease, the dreams I had for my life were shattered. However, the one dream I had left, which was to get my health back, eventually came true. And with it, the other dreams that were shattered have come back to life.
Now I try to help others take better care of themselves with this website. As well, I try to help people in developing countries with no mental health care at www.mindaid.ca.
Whether you have mental illness or not, I hope that you will find some easier ways to get healthier here.
I have no health-related certification, but I have read hundreds of books and articles on how to get healthier. I try to summarize all that information for you and make it easier for you to learn.
Read what I have to say with a skeptical mind. I try to be as accurate as I can, but I may unknowingly be wrong in something I say.
I can't guarantee you results, but I'm proud of the knowledge I impart to you here. If you can't find what you want on this website, I hope that you will find it somewhere else.
If you have mental health problems yourself, feel free to check out my Facebook group called "Mental Wellness Survival Tips" by clicking here.
In the group, I give some mental health tips, as well as some physical health and social health tips, as they are all related.
How would you feel if you had some more muscle on you? Or even a lot more muscle? How would you like to be able to run faster, have greater endurance and more stamina? How would you like to have more confidence and know how to handle social situations more smoothly?
How would you like to stop smoking or drinking? How would you like to have better mental resilience and feel less depressed or less anxious? How would you like to wake up each morning with excitement and enthusiasm, ready to start the day?
But instead you find yourself weighing more than you want to, unable to find the energy to eat better or do some exercise. The couch seems to have some magnetic grip on you. You wish you could start to change, but it just doesn't happen.
Perhaps you can find some of the answers to these problems at this site. I've been reading books on how to improve general health since the year 2000 in the areas of physical fitness, diet, people skills, mental health, motivation, and addiction, amongst others.
The Convenient Weight Loss Plan has two workout components:
1) An easy way to build muscle with the Convenient Workout:
Did you know that the average hour-long workout with weights at the gym has only about 5 minutes of actual work in it?
How can you use this to your advantage?
Enter the Convenient Workout. With only four exercises that are ridiculously simple to fit into your day, it might just be the easiest way to build muscle in the world.
Learn more about the Convenient Workout below on this page, as well as under "The Convenient Weight Loss Plan: The Workouts" tab.
However, if the Convenient Workout isn't for you, there are other ways to build muscle under the "Other Ways to Build Muscle" tab.
2) An easy way to do cardio with short sprints:
The second part of the Convenient Weight Loss Plan involves cardiovascular exercise. Here I make the case for short sprints. Sprinting is an easy way to get some cardio into your day that doesn't take much time.
Sprinting increases your anaerobic capacity as well as your aerobic capacity. In sprints that last only seconds, you can improve your short distance cardio levels and your long-distance cardio levels too.
Learn more about sprinting under the "The Convenient Weight Loss Plan: The Workouts" tab.
However, if sprinting isn't your thing, there are other ways to do cardio under the "Other Cardio Exercises" tab.
Besides the Convenient Weight Loss Plan, some of the other highlights of this site are:
1) For an amazing diet that has only a few rules, look under the "Diet" tab. This diet, developed by Allen Carr, focuses on eating healthy food, but not overeating.
2) For better social skills, look under the "Stress" tab and then "Healthy Relationship Tips". I'll introduce you to Verbal Judo, perhaps the easiest people skills system in the world. It's what police officers use to deal with difficult people.
3) To help you fight addiction, I describe an incredibly important concept under the "Smoking, Drugs and Alcohol" tab. Substance abuse can have consequences that go beyond being overweight.
4) For better mental fitness, look under the "Motivation" tab and then "Best Books to Read". One of my recommendations here is a book by Mark Divine, who has trained thousands of Navy SEALs. He gives away all their secrets in his book.
One pound of muscle burns more calories than one pound of fat. So having more muscle on you acts as a 24/7 fat-burning machine.
The Convenient Workout has three main concepts:
1) There are only four exercises that work your entire body: push-ups, pull-ups, planks and squats.
2) You don't do them all at once, one after the other, like all normal workouts do. You do them one at a time, spread throughout the day, even hours apart from each other.
3) You do them whenever you want, as your energy dictates.
Find out more about the Convenient Workout under the "The Convenient Weight Loss Plan: The Workouts" tab.
Millions of us have dreams of getting in shape, but we just don't get around to doing it. What's ironic is that if you do the work, you will more than likely see results. It's not like you have a slim chance (pardon the pun) of making any progress. You have a huge chance of seeing results! We sit on the couch and don't do some pushups or go for a run, yet we play the lottery, hoping to win.
Chase your dreams. Of all the dreams that you have, getting in shape is one of the most attainable ones. And it doesn't have to take up a lot of time. To make a million dollars, you might have to work a 40-hour week. To see great results healthwise, it might take an hour or two a week as a minimum, with much better odds and faster results.
Walking around in a strong, healthy body and feeling confident is a very enjoyable experience. I sincerely hope some of my words on this site can help you reach that goal.
Fitness does not have to be drudgery. You can achieve a healthy weight and feel joy and vitality with less effort than you might think. Exercising can be a very fun thing to do. Some people who have hated exercise for years can actually begin to love it.
I hope you can find something here that will help you. I hope I can inspire you in some way to get the body that you would like.
Maybe what I offer here isn't for you now. Maybe it's just not the right time. Perhaps, though, this could help you in the future. Some people can take years before they're ready to make changes in their life. Perhaps, I can be of assistance then. I hope you keep this site in mind for further down the road.
