Just do it, Not just talk about it
It’s that time of year again.You may be like many of us across the country, still stuck in the food coma that came upon you this holiday season, unable to recover. Hopefully, you found a balance between having fun and letting loose a bit and with keeping your personal fitness goals intact. While taking a break from a rigorous schedule is certainly important, all too often we see a cheat day turn into a cheat week. Then the cheat week becomes a month, and then a season. You wake up 50 lbs heavier, in a virtual daze over what has happened a year later.
And we aren’t trying to cause people unnecessary alarm here, either. we here at priority fitness want to provide some folks looking for some inspiration to get going. Perhaps you find yourself in a position similar to the one described above – and you don’t know where to start.
Start A Journal
As it specifically applies to weight loss motivation, it will help you verbalize your goals, hopes, and fears as they are related to the process. Often times, we are unaware of what is hindering our progress.
When you write every day, it helps set yourself up for success with routine. Discipline leads to more discipline and can have a trickle-down, crossover effect in multiple areas of your life.
Understand That A Setback Isn’t Synonymous With Failure
Akin to our point we made earlier, But how does this happen? It’s usually your mind just messing with you, ironically, because you care too much.
If you care so much about your new fitness plan, it’s quite possible that slipping up for a week might cause you emotional distress. We aren’t talking about some clinical state of distress, mind you, we just mean it can really, really bum people out if they aren’t able to tackle the obstacle they set out to. Being able to get up, dust yourself off, and get back on that horse again is what it takes to achieve long-term weight loss and fitness goals.
Set Realistic Goals
Give yourself achievable weight loss goals, if weight loss is your endgame. If you are training for performance, apply the same principle. Try tracking monthly instead of weekly results. It’s a better sample size and will give you a more accurate picture of what is occurring. Weekly measuring is just rushing it.
Keep Good CompanyThe people with whom we choose to spend our time affect us, whether we realize it or not. If you are around people who like to live fast and eat unhealthily, there’s a good chance you are going to be following their lead in a few weeks’ time. Likewise, if you come to a fitness boot camp, you’ll probably meet a few new people who have a similar outlook on life as you. Or, just maybe, you’ll meet some people who inspire you – people who you want to spend more time with.
