So the new year new me thing may have worn off of some people by now. A lot of the times we start something but never follow through all the way like we would like to. Did you fall off of your routine & are stuck? We wait until the beginning of the year to start our working out and eating healthy. Most people stick to it & some fall off after a couple of weeks.
What keeps you inspired to sticking to your fitness & nutrition goals? I look back as my last show and how lean I was and how I could actually see my abs and I want to get back to that but actually stay there. I know I can do it if I reverse correctly. See what makes you inspired & look at it everyday or set it as your background on your phone so you see it multiple times a day.
It is so important you get into a routine and a great schedule everyday so you don’t fall off track. We all start somewhere. It is very important that you figure out what you like. Not everyone enjoys lifting weights. There are other types of workouts that you can do to get your heart rate up and burning fat.
Set goals for yourself. When you have reached that goal of losing 5 or 10 pounds reward yourself.
Find out what works best for you. What makes you happy. Maybe it is a group fitness class, pilates, spin class, swimming, lifting weights, HIIT workouts. Try out different types and see which you like best.
Have a workout buddy to keep you accountable. Both of y’all plan to go to the gym everyday at a certain time. When you have a friend to go with it makes you not want to cancel on them. They will be there to help push you through your workout and make it enjoyable.
Think of why you started. What are your goals that you are trying to accomplish. Are you trying to get fit for yourself or health reasons?
Never give up because you can’t do something. If you are having trouble with the weight or movement, drop the weight and slow down and really control your workouts.
Make it a lifestyle. Don’t do it because you think you have to. Do it because it is what you want to do.
When you have a set routine everyday it makes it easier to not make impulsive decisions. Like going out for drinks on a Tuesday.
Think about what you are putting into your body. Yes we all have cravings and it is fine to have those in MODERATION but your body does not need that. Make sure you are meal planning so it is easy for you to grab something to eat and quick for you when you have such a busy schedule.
When I started getting into fitness and caring about what I ate, it changed my life. I feel so amazing now and look way better. I am not under eating or over eating I am eating what is right for my body. When I go out to eat I make the right decisions. I chose to get chicken and rice with a salad or steak. Something healthy and that is good for my body. Not chicken fried chicken that I know as soon as I finish eating it I will feel awful and it will make me so sick.
I hope you enjoyed my post on how to get back into a routine if you have fallen off track! Have a great rest of your day!
