We’ve all experienced it at one time in our fitness journey. When you do so well for a week, maybe 2, or even a month, and then you fall off of the wagon. Maybe you decide to give it a go after a few days pass.
1. Stop Dieting
This couldn’t be more true. JUST STOP DIETING. STOP RESTRICTING. Whether you have someone create your meal plan or you follow one you’ve created yourself it’s important to remember that the changes you make in your diet should be sustainable for you and your lifestyle.
Make a plan to start eating more nutrient dense food. Food that is less processed and that can be found on the outside perimeter of the grocery store. If you start out with small changes in your diet you are more likely to succeed long term. Eat more whole foods and less frozen or processed foods. Do not completely cut anything out cold turkey.
2. Does the gym make you nervous?
The gym can be nerve racking for all of us at times. Whether it is a new setting or not. Make a plan so you know what action to take before you even show up. If the gym isn’t for you, find a park or even in your living room.
There are many body weight exercises out there that are very effective and you can even incorporate HIIT circuit training and light dumbbells.
3. Motivation VS Accountability
Sometimes it’s not motivation we need, its accountability. No one is motivated 100% of the time. Finding an accountability partner can be very important when you have new goals to reach especially along your fitness journey.
Accountability partners can’t always be your friends as sometimes our friends may tend to give in or be more lenient on us at times. Find a true accountability partner or coach that will push you and help you stay on track to meet your goals. Be sure to do your research and ask questions when looking for a coach and forking over your hard earned money.
