5 steps fit Formula
I like to make things as easy as possible because nobody needs more stress added into their lives. Life is already difficult enough so here's are 5 tips on how to stay fit with the least amount of effort possible
you could say it's A Guide on getting toned and building muscle whilst managing work, life, and a 2-year-old.
Step 1 education:
You may not have a certification in fitness. Still, to make fitness accessible, you have to know as much as you can, just like any new hobby, you learn things along the way; however, I recommend getting a nutrition book or a cookbook and an exercise book because bland food is pointless and a waste of tastebuds and knowing where a muscle is, helps you identify which areas should be working and which shouldn't. Most exercise books come with example workouts or programmes to follow, which can always be a great starting point. (Check out these books)
Step 2 Programming:
Creating your own unique programme or getting a programme for an exercise professional, "Me", can be vital to achieving your goals. Usually, a programme created by me looks at what to achieve, want your personal goals are. Then those goals are simplified to make them more achievable and individual to you, which is a bonus.

Step 3 Scheduling:
Making sure you have time to work out is essential; exercising needs to be a part of your life. If you're going to make any real progress, make sure that exercising is non-negotiable in your diary. This increases your chances of actually going through with exercise consistently rather than it being just another passing thought or something you can wriggle out of. It's now a fixed part of your days like lunch or the school run.
Step 4 Diet:
The hardest part,
make sure that your diet is a part of your lifestyle,
make sure that you are eating foods that you enjoy,
make sure that your diet is simple to manage
I like things that are quick, simple to cook and can be eaten cold because there are times that I'm not near a microwave, so you will often see me eating pasta and tuna dishes. I make sure that meals are cooked for 2-3 days because I wouldn't say I like cooking every day, and even worse, I Loathe washing up. By making meals in bulk and then eating them over 2-3 days, I have one load of washing up to do; I know that my meals are already ready, reducing my craving/wanting to snack. Ultimately have more time to spend with my son.
Step 5 Monitoring:
Monitoring is the best way to notice if you are on track or not; it lets you know if you need to make any changes to the course or if you should keep things the same way. I personally monitor my daily calories, daily steps and daily weight because that gives me an average over the week, and at the end of the week, I can make changes for the week ahead if things aren't going to plan
