Hopefully your weekend was well spent and you’re ready to face the week ahead. I spent the better part of my weekend filming and editing videos that will go up on YouTube this week! I also took some time to regroup and refocus on what I want to accomplish this year, at least when it comes to health and fitness.
I’m fairly certain that I’m not teaching you anything new when I say “living a healthy lifestyle is hard.” It really is, it take times, commitment, energy, want, motivation, inspiration and sometimes even blood sweat and tears! It can be very easy to get off track without even realizing it because of an external factor like the holidays. We get caught up in everything that’s happening around us and end up losing track of our plan. It’s also very easy to lose sight of your goals or forget how to get back into your regular life and daily routine.
I will be the first to admit that over the holidays I veered of the path of ultimate health but I’m back! I’ve had to sit down and write some goals, and also little notes to help me when I’m struggling or simply to remind me of why I’m doing this. Going back to “living a healthy lifestyle is hard” or “losing weight is hard”, in order to make it easier on yourself you need to have one or two reasons why you’re doing this. Reasons that are more than superficial, my reason is HEALTH. I want to live life with as little doctor visits as I can, I want to be there for my children and grand-children, I want to grow old with little ailments and a great big smile. For me that is enough to get my mind back in the game. For you it might be something completely different. I suggest you find a reason or goal that isn’t superficial so that when you achieve it you’re not left not knowing what do to next. For example: if your goal is to fit in your smallest pair skinny jeans, what is going to happen when you achieve that goal? Just a little something to think about.
Tips for getting back on track
1. Set goals and make a plan
2. Stay Hydrated
3. Eat throughout the day
Eating smalls meals throughout the day will help prevent you from bingeing or overeating at night time.
4. Ease back into your workouts
Easing back into your workouts will help to prevent injury and overexertion which could put you out of commission for much longer than you’d ever want.
5. Quotes or motivational wall
6. Be Consistent
“There are no secrets to success. It is the result of preparation, hard work and learning from failure.”
