jeudi 28 février 20130 commentaires

Maintaining your fitness goals is a difficult task. Most people who fall off the wagon aren’t able to get back on. Follow these five steps to get back on track!

  

Picture this: You're two months into your New Year's resolution, and the luster is fading fast. The workouts take too long, the diet is annoying, and you just want things to go back to the way they were. To make things worse, you feel bad about yourself for wanting to quit. Evidence of your "failure" is everywhere. The perfectly chiseled, smiling fitness models on magazine covers even seem to glare at you in line at the grocery store.
Don't let the tough stuff drag you down! Magazine covers don't matter. Your fitness is your own. Your second chance begins with the realization that you are becoming the best version of yourself. It should never be about comparisons. Trust me: I've been where you are, and I know how you feel.

Although it's difficult not to give in to your dwindling motivation, it's not impossible. There's always time to turn around! If you need some extra help, try these five steps. They'll help you rediscover your motivation and get you back on track to becoming your healthiest self.

Step 1 Take Ownership of Your Life

When I decided to make changes to my life, I had to take stock of my habits. I had to evaluate how I trained, how I ate, and how my other activities influenced my health.

Once I did that, I consciously and repeatedly told myself I was in charge of my life. Every choice I made about my health was my own.
Giving myself that responsibility helped me set my heart on what I wanted to do. I had the ability to make myself into the happiest, healthiest, most humble person I could be. I encourage everyone to do the same.
Step 2  Plan Ahead
Once I took ownership of my life, I set a plan to make a change. Everyone has a busy schedule, so it's important to be committed to those times you know you can make it to the gym. It's also important to give yourself an extra day for emergencies and unplanned problems.

If you know you can make it to the gym four days per week, start by scheduling three. That way, if you have a sick kid or have unexpected car problems, you already carved out time in your life to deal with them. Outsmart your excuses!

Once you make the commitment, just go. Everyone, even seasoned gym patrons, gets into a funk. Sometimes going to the gym is just a chore. But once you get done with your workout, you can feel great about your accomplishment. You will feel great about your workout, and you can also be proud of kicking your old self in the pants!
