5 ways to get back on track with fitness and maintain it
Figuring out how to have a successful run in the gym can be the beginning of a lifestyle change that places creating your optimal body your new natural habit. It does take some planning ahead though.
Pick a goal:
Picking a clear purpose is helpful. Defining a goal or picking an event will help motivate you to start exercising again. There is nothing like signing up or registering for a 5k to get moving.
Make a schedule:
You should wake up each morning and have a set schedule of what you want to do for the day. Indecision is an issue that leads to idleness. Figure out what you’re doing and do it. Don’t get too distracted though. Start little and watch the progression!
Go deeper with your motivation. Why is exercising or fitness important to you? Is it to fit in clothes? play with your kids? reduce your blood pressure? Finding out “Why” will make putting in the time less hard and will re-engage you when things get tired and boring.
This means a few things, such as communicate your people. Also, that extra accountability will motivate you. In addition, create your energy level. Create your mental place to have enough energy to push through.
Visualize the end goal. Also see yourself dealing with obstacles effectively. Envision how good you will fell at the end. When your mind believes, your body will achieve. See it. Then do it!
