Happy New Year everyone! I wanted to take a second to cover a topic that most people have prooobably heard about RESOLUTIONS...except I don't want to call it that. Instead, let's call it Goal Crushing. Becaaause I don't think people take the word resolution very seriously and maybe if we call it something else AND I give you the steps to follow through with your goals...You WILL accomplish them!
I want you guys to consider your fitness goal/goals for 2018 and write them down. Next, I'm going to give you my top 5 tips for achieving these goals and ways to turn them it into a habit (instead of a 1 week commitment). We will not let this goal slip away like it does for so many people! All we have to do is take it 1 day, 1 step, and 1 good decision at a time.
Set aside the time
When it comes to fitness goals, you always hear people saying, "I just don’t have the time." SO how do we fix this? Set aside time up front! Plan your days, weeks, maybe even months … find a 1 hour time slot that routinely works with your schedule and go ahead and pencil it into your calendar. Make that commitment and give it a place in your day!
How we talk to ourselves is so crucial! Always go into the gym with a good attitude. Even on the days you are tired or sore, a positive outlook can help you change everything for the better. Choose to be happy, look forward to making new friends with similar goals , and get excited about learning new skills!
Focus on today
Stay in the present! Don't be concerned with how much time is left in your workout, how many more workouts you need to do this week, etc. If you allow yourself to think too far ahead, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. You can only control the moment; so don't get caught up in projecting yourself into the future.
PACE YOURSELF! You can't successfully go from 0 to 100 mph in a single day. It's not sustainable, especially if it's been a while since you worked out. So shoot for 3 days a week, and focus on making those 3 days of workouts really solid. Once you feel comfortable at this level, then you can gradually begin to add more days to your schedule.
Remember your why
Never forget why you made fitness your goal! The reason you chose this goal is because you wanted to see a positive change! And the only way to accomplish this change is to stick to your plan! Follow these steps, remember why you started, and a few short months from now, you will be so glad that you did!
