Stick With Your Fitness Plan
Quick, what’s the most difficult aspect of your fitness program?
If you’re like most, it’s getting to the gym regularly and eating right every day, even when you don’t feel like it. You’re a little tired, the dog needs walking, they’re rerunning The Sopranos, Big Brother, etc.
It’s easy to slag off once in a while. Unfortunately, it’s the little slips that can really eat into your progress, or even stop it.
In addition to a number of fitness professionals and experts in the field, we always solicit feedback to tell us how you keep yourself motivated (since we are in your other ear pumping you up!) week after week! There are many people that still need specific targets or goals placed in front of them. I have taken it upon myself to give you a couple of targets to always shoot for. So the next time you’re tempted to skip a workout or gorge on a bucket of tater tots, keep these maxims in mind.
Have a Purpose
1. Write down time-specific fitness goals in a diary, so you can see whether you’ve attained them when the time is up.
2. Write down what you want to achieve for the day, how you will achieve it, and check it when you have accomplished it. Keep the list either on your person or posted on the mirror in my bathroom or bedroom.
3. Set up short-term goals— always make sure that you have certain points along the way that can track your progress. This will keep you going when times are tough and maybe you don’t feel like working out.
Always remember that while you are seeking the finish line, the journey is very educational and enjoyable! Use these as a guide and find the tools that allow you to manage and successfully navigate your efforts down the path of satisfaction and achievement.
