We are the most excited about working out in the thought process or listening to a trainer and watching videos however when it’s time to get up in the morning we press snooze. And make every excuse why we need to wait one more day or one more week to start. It’s like our heart and mind are in the right place but not our bodies. It can be very tough to try over and over again with no avail.
#1 If you fail to plan; you plan to fail.
- Planning a week at a time, helps you automate a few things. Plan your meals and your workouts a day or days before you actually start your fitness plan. That includes food prepping, writing your grocery list and shopping, planning your exercise outfits and times to workout. What you’re doing during the workout and afterwards, etc.
#2 Working out it not a priority, it’s a wish
- Working out must become a priority, it is the air you breathe, the water you need, it is a necessity not an option. Working out is life, your life and you must live it!
#3 It is not a part of your current routine
- Therefore, you must make it part of your current routine. The same way you don’t fuss over bathing or brushing your teeth. Even if all you can a lot for the day is a 20 min walk everyday then, do it. TIP: It is best to do fitness in the morning and just get it out of the way.
#4 You have not prepared for success
- You must be prepared for your success. Measure yourself, count those inches. Not just the pounds. Those non-scale victories are just important. So, when you lose inches but the scale isn’t moving, it means you’re losing fat and gaining muscle. Set your goals and rewards in advance. For example, we you achieve 7 consecutive workouts, you will reward yourself with a new headband or after 3 weeks of consistency you will reward yourself with a new sports bra.
#5 You don’t take start gradually
- You go too hard in the begin and wear yourself out. You try to keep up with everyone around you but really you need to take it as slow and steady as possible. Yes, you know you’re strong and you’ve probably done this before time and time again however this is a new time. Be gently and consistent. Don’t try to make up for lost time in one workout session. We want to stay injury-free
My motto is plan your success, track your success and share your success!
