Guest Post :: Hello, Fall: How To Switch Your Fitness Routine

I will be the first to say that working out and being in a fitness routine is one of the most beneficial things you can do for yourself. However, it is always so hard to actually get in fitness routine and once you fall out of the habit it is so hard to get back into one. So my biggest piece of advice is, once you’re on the wagon, don’t fall off. I just started working out on a regular basis again a couple months ago, and wow, I forgot how good it feels {after the fact}, I can safely say that I will be carrying my fitness routine over into the fall and winter months! Today Petter Minkoff is sharing some key tips on how to switch over to a Fall fitness routine!
Losing weight and turning your body into a mean machine is probably going to be the hardest thing you’ve done this year. However, if you put your mind to it, you’re going to make a major difference in the way you feel, look and perceive yourself. If you don’t start noticing the results in the first couple of weeks, though, you might want to reconsider what you’re doing and change your fitness routine: perhaps your workout regime isn’t working, you’re on the wrong diet, you’re not drinking enough water or getting enough sleep. So, in order to make the biggest change possible, you need to experiment with various ideas until you’ve found the one that works for you, so here are a few ways to change your fitness routine in a matter of days.

Find Someone To Look Up To
If you’re a realistic person, you’re able to assess the way you look and see what is and isn’t working for you – maybe you’ve got a huge belly, weak legs and saggy arms. That’s why you have to know what you’re aiming for and always keep a picture of your ideal self in your mind because that’s the best way to keep motivated and never forget what your long-term goal is. However, there’s another idea, a bit more unusual, yet just as effective.

Keeping a mental image of another person whose body you admire as an inspiration might seem strange and funny at first, but this could help you quite a lot. For instance, if you wish to look like Victoria’s Secret model – and, let’s be honest, who doesn’t? – you need to know what she looks like and how you’re going to get there. In addition to that, you have to learn his workout routine and eating regime and follow them closely. Having a role model isn’t just for kids, and having one when working out can only do you good.
Make A Detailed Plan
This is another thing most people are going to find silly and useless, but making a detailed plan and always knowing what you’re supposed to eat and focus on in the gym the next day is probably the most efficient way to meet your goals. This will help you make a real difference in the way you look, but it will also help you get organized and meticulous about working out, and that’s something we all need.

The first thing you have to do is determine your short- and long-term goals, as well as the amount of time you’re willing to spend on getting your body back in shape. Then talk to a dietician and a personal trainer and listen to their suggestions on the food youshould eat and exercises you should do. In the end, come up with a monthly, weekly and daily workout and eating regime you’re going follow until you reach your goals.

Change The Diet
Sometimes, simply altering your diet and bringing in lots of fresh fruits and vegetables just isn’t enough. If that’s the case with you as well, you have to completely change your diet and replace it with a more sustainable one that brings visible results and puts you on a path to success. Talk to your nutritionist and your general physician about this and let them come up with a regime that fits your body type, weight, age and lifestyle the most.

Another thing you should try is food supplements. These helpful little things might not seem like a lot at first, but could actually make a huge difference in your weight-losing process and help you reach results more quickly and efficiently. Luckily, there are lots of different supplements available to you at the moment and many ways you can get them, from on overnight delivery in Sydney to a well-supplied supplement store in Parramatta, which only shows you can get your supplies in smaller places as well.
Try New Exercises 
Just because lifting weights and running on a treadmill works for you doesn’t mean you shouldn’t try something else from time to time. Spicing things up and introducing new exercises into your workout regime is the best way to make a difference in the long run and actually make all your dreams come true.

You could also start following the latest fitness trends and trying out new moves and exercises that all the experts are recommending at the moment. Some of the most popular ideas for this year include things like martial arts, parkour and even pole-fitness, so explore these as soon as possible.

Perfecting your fitness routine takes a lot of time and energy, but you won’t make real progress until you’ve found the regime that works for you. So, try some of these ideas out and take your fitness life to a whole new level right now!

Having A Hair (Accessory) Moment

I usually don’t get into hair accessories that are too embellished, I usually keep it pretty simple and either wear my hair down or in a ponytail, nothing too fussy. However, lately there have seemed to be a wave of classy embellished hair accessories. I have to say I kind of love the bows on hair ties and scrunchies; by the way, who would have thought that scrunchies would have ever come back around?
There is something about the hair accessories that remind me of some of my favorite decades of fashion, and I am definitely caught up in the movement. After all, who can turn down a silk hair tie with a tasteful bow {hello 1950’s} or tortoise embellishments {gotta love a nod to the 90s}.
