This is a very smart tip for consuming foods that you probably don't like the taste of, especially for early mornings. Maybe mint leaves and garlic.

True, being a CEO may not afford you the luxury of time to cook yourself but fix your eyes on the benefits. When you can, it's best to cook your meals at home. Homemade foods and most likely cheaper!

Don't wait till you're feeling some pain in your lower abdomen or a tingling sound in your ears before you check yourself. Frequent healthy checks are quite encouraged not just for yourself but for the longevity of your business. If you feel a little dull in your eye vision, get checked; if you feel a discomfort in your hearing, get hearing aids. Important thing to note is that checking yourself frequently should be a lifestyle.
Make exercises fun
Do exercises that you love. If you're more or less forced into a routine you don't enjoy, you would sooner or later abandon ship. Explore different exercise programmes and discover what suits you best. There are loads of programmes you can consider choosing from like martial arts, kickboxing, yoga, jumping rope etc. You may not love gym workouts, but there are several workout routines online you can try at home or in the office gym. Also, build a sound foundation as this would allow you prepare for higher level workouts that you would most likely progress to.
Grow in your workout routines
Do more. So many people wonder why they aren't getting more results or being fatigued at work despite religiously sticking to their work out schedules. However, they fail to realize that their body is already used to those routines, so basically, they have adapted to them. So if you want better results, you should increase the demands of your routine.
There are many ways you can do this. However, steady progress is key.
Try new things
I don't mean you should go buy that "magic weight loss" pill that has been popping up on your browser every few minutes. However, be open to trying new things, especially when it has to do with your lifestyle, exercise and eating habits. Repetition can be boring and one day, you may just up and leave the fit-fam train in search of something new. That is why you are encouraged to try something new within your routine. Don't feel constricted to only eating apples for after work or jump-rope for your pos work routine. Switch things up. Look for alternatives. Try cycling or the treadmill instead of walking miles every morning. Eat chicken salads instead of the empty cabbage and lettuce. You've been wanting a six pack banging bod? Try legal steroids! Be sure to read reviews and carefully research before you indulge.
If you want real results, you have to plan ahead and build a realistic and attainable, smart fitness plan. This 2017, choose to stay fit whether you're a business owner or employee.
