Help with getting fit, fairly quickly?

Hi, I’m 18 years old, almost 5″5, and I weigh 10 stone 2 pounds (142 pounds).
I’m not technically overweight, my BMI is 23 or so, but I feel that my frame is quite small and doesn’t suit this size, and my stomach is appallingly bad for my age :p

I’d love to get fit, especially before I start university at the end of September. I realise I won’t be 100% by then, but anyone have any tips to get properly fit? I want to improve my stamina so I don’t get breathless running for 5 minutes, sort out my stomach, and maybe lose a little weight. I’m willing to spend 2 hours a day on whatever exercises needed.

    You havent mensioned anything about NUTRITION here….
    Did you know that what you eat is a slight bit more important than how much exercises you do!…..and remember that mucles exhursion type excercises are what change your body into beuty not running and walking that would take forever……
    Make sure that you fill up your referigerator with plenty green beans brocoli and karatos and other vegitable high in vitimins and fiber….drink plenty water and protien poweder…..if you are building leg and butt muscles…….and if you can afford it take a daily multi vitim!……The excersises i would do as a female would be situps stair master and squats and any and ALL leg and buttock machine excercises

    Change your daily meal calorie intake
    instead of 3 meals,
    eat more often with small quanitities each time

    for exercise, just start out with a slow jog or a brisk walk to the park and back maybe once a day
    and then gradually increase it

    Running and swimming are some good calorie burners and will definitly get you in shape

    The MOST important thing is to eat naturally..without medicines, chemicals, “starving” your self etc.

    first, it would be best for you to eat as healthy as possible..this will also help you considerably to lose weight gradually and naturally..

    eat fresh fruits, vegetables, drink plenty of WATER..avoid all cokes, caffeines, smoking, alchohol etc. as these also add weight as well as they contain chemicals which disturb your natural bio rythmns as well as brain chemistry. try not to eat too much meat, and the meat you should eat should be “lean meat” such as steamed chicken and rice, or steamed fish with rice..and vegetables,, this should be your staple diet rice and vegetables with fruits..AVOID “JUNK FOOD” and “Fast Food” as this type of food is very unhealthy, lacking in vitamins really and has plenty of fattening molecules which make one gain weight and is very bad for overall health.

    if you snack,, try fruits with yogurt or fruit yogurt and nuts.. nuts are very healthy for your body .and contain proteins.

    go for walks every evening or morning or whenever you get time each day for 1 hour or 2 hours..make this somewhere you enjoy walking even if you have to drive a bit to there..and make this a daily will enjoy it once you get into it ..and it makes you feel great after..just walking for 1 hour or 2 hours.

    if you do this..every day for one month should lose around 10 pounds (.714 stone) per month until you get to your natural healthy weight.. look up on the internet for an idea of what your weight for your height should be ..and when you get to this weight,,your body will look very nice and you will feel very good.

    10 pounds (.714 stone ) each month in 3 months you should lose 30 pounds (2 stones, 2 pounds)..for sure…but no junk food and dont drink alcohol or smoke, dont eat junk..just healthy food with vitamins and walking 1 hour or 2 hours every day..and drink plenty of water..this is guaranteed way to lose weight naturally and for good, if you stick to this, which you should,,as it makes you feel so much more positive due to the vitamins and lack of chemicals making you feel depressed…

    btw, forgot to mention,,just in case you dont know how to really make healthy a “food steamer” at your local deparment store..they are very cheap and work very well as buy a “rice cooker” which is also very cheap..eating rice is a great way to get your necessary carbs “healthy carbs” to lose weight and has lots of natural energy inside. you can buy asian rice at most large supermarkets or if you have a local oriental market..they sale quality asian rice.. thai or indian rice is good “jasmine rice”.. buy corn or canola oil to sprinkle on vegetables or rice before steaming to add to taste as well as you can buy several nice spices like “cumin” or “Curry powders”, etc.just sprinkle on the vegetables before steaming to give nice taste.

    drink “Green Tea” as this is very healthy and helps burn extra fat faster…you can buy quality green tea at most oriental shops or large supermarkets as well

    To lose weight/get fit, first look at your eating habits. Do you tend to have bigger portions at mealtimes? If you do, then try eating on a smaller sized plate. That way, it will look like you have a full plate but in fact you are eating less.

    Do you eat a lot of fatty/sugary foods, such as cheesecakes, ice cream, crisps, sweets, chocolate, biscuits, fry-ups? If you do, limit yourself to two days a week where you are allowed to eat things like this. This will give you a bit of what you like to eat, so you do not binge unnecessarily. I recommend this advice as cutting fatty/sugary foods out completely will lead to craving and binges, resulting in low moods and weight gain.

    Do you tend to snack a lot? If you do, then try swapping your normal snacks for negative calorie foods. These include:

    To help you look leaner, I suggest taking up a few activities that will give you exercise, such as dancing, swimming, karate, running/athletics, and going to the gym. This will not only help you tone up, but will take your mind off food and release endorphins which have been proven to lift mood. Simply walking more is a great way to start. Fitness wise, you must build up stamina. Start by running for 5 mins, then when you can do this without getting breathless, run for 10. Do 5 mins run, 5mins walk, 5mins run, 5 mins walk as many times as you can each day. I did this, i’m 13 and I can now run for 30mins non stop without getting breathless or feeling weak.I am 100 pounds and 5’4”.

    Hope this helps and good luck!
