In my earlier post I talked about how eating often can help you lose weight. But this is just one side of the coin. Of course you cannot just watch what you eat and drop off 5-10 kilos. And so comes the famous saying – No pain, No Gain! 🙂

To see a drop on the weighing scale you need to eat healthy and also have an active lifestyle. Eating healthy is still the easier part. Most of us fail at keeping our bodies active. So even if we make right food choices, we don’t see much difference and claim weight loss doesn’t happen.

Apparently a lot of people are aware of the hazards of our sedatory lifestyle. We all know about the benefits of working out. But in our busy lives, how to find time to workout? We all have the right intentions to be healthy, but where is the time?!

I started working out a month after my delivery. I was a SAHM for a year and used to workout 5 days a week. I am a working mom now and still exercise. So, we DO HAVE time to workout.

If you end up saying I don’t have time, it means you don’t plan things aptly.  So coming back to the question – How can you really bring workouts into your routine?

Answer is – Workout in Morning. First thing in the day.

Read on to know more :

1. Odds are in your favor.

As the day gets busy, workout is the first thing we strike off our schedules. Mornings are the time when our plates are relatively empty. Kids are asleep and the chores are yet to begin. If you set your days to start with a workout, chances of regularity would be high.

2. Kick starts your metabolism for rest of the day.

A morning workout leaves you ravenous. You end up eating a sumptuous breakfast. This refuels your body for the activities for the rest of the day. A healthy and heavy breakfast is essential for boosting your metabolism. Don’t we all know it? 🙂

3. Leaves you energized and positive.

A good workout can leave you motivated and positive. And its not just for saying. A lot of scientific research have findings on why a workout makes you happy. 

4. Effective for Weight Loss as per studies.

A lot of studies claim the effectiveness of working out empty stomach for weight loss. Our bodies goes into fasting mode overnight. A workout in the morning fits the bill just perfectly.

5. You make healthy food choices through the day.

Once you’ve had a good workout session in the morning chances of binging on junk becomes bleak. Morning’s hard work leaves you motivated and focussed towards your goal of healthy eating. You will seldom make wrong food choices through the day.

6. Sounds Cool.

“Oh boy, I had one awesome workout session in the morning.” And you suddenly turn into a superhero for your colleagues. Cause you workout in the morning! Ain’t it cool? 🙂

The cat is out in open! If you want to stay fit like really want to, workout in the morning. Yes, time to kick yourself out of the bed and start working! Leaving you guys behind with this apt quote!
