Reaching your fitness goals doesn’t have to be guesswork. If you embark upon a fitness journey and commit to it, there’s no way you can fail. However, you really do need to be consistent if you’re going to get to where you want to be. Let’s take a look at a few ways you can reach your fitness goals, guaranteed:
Stack Up Those Good Habits
It’s all about stacking up those good habits. Get up, make your bed, drink a pint of water, and take your vitamins. What a fabulous start to the day, and you’ve stacked three great habits! James Clear talks more about this in his book Automic Habits.
Track Your Progress
Tracking your progress could mean any number of things – certainly not just tracking your weight, which can be misleading at times! Instead, track your measurements, track how you feel, and track how your clothes fit.
Celebrate Your Wins, No Matter How Small
Celebrate every single win. Do something kind for yourself and make a big deal out of it!
Work With A Reputable Professional
If you don’t want to go it alone, work with a reputable professional such as Dr. Marvell Scott. Even coaches have coaches to help them move forward and stay objective. Everyone needs someone to point out their blind spots!
Don’t Do Anything That You Hate
You should enjoy it, whatever you are doing. You won’t always find what you’re doing easy – many exercises are supposed to be challenging! However, there’s a difference between being challenged in your workouts and forcing yourself to do something that you just can’t seem to enjoy. If you hate what you’re doing, you won’t stick to it. Find something that you actually like and stick to it instead.
Eat In Alignment With What You’d Like To Achieve
The way you eat will impact whether you reach your fitness goals – but this doesn’t mean eating like a rabbit. It means getting your protein up, eating your vegetables, and eating healthy fats and carbs. Balanced meals are key!
Stay In A Positive Mindset
The fact is, whether you think you can or you can’t, you’re right. If you don’t stay in a positive mindset, you’re unlikely to keep on going until you reach the goals you set out to accomplish. It can be hard to stay in a positive mindset all of the time, and even unrealistic. However, you can always find things to be grateful for, and you can always try to put a positive spin on a situation. You weren’t able to complete your full workout in the gym due to other commitments? You’ve learned to plan your schedule better, and you still got a short workout in. You couldn’t work out at all due to work and other commitments? Well, you can still stay hydrated, eat balanced meals, and get plenty of rest! Don’t worry yourself. As long as you keep going, nothing can stop you from getting to where you want to be.
