All of us who are on this journey believe that taking care of our bodies is important. How we go about that may change over time, we may need to decide which way is better, or worse, but the end game is still the same.
When it comes to fitness, many people view getting healthier, stronger, and lighter as more of a destination than a journey. But if you’re serious about fitness and living a healthy lifestyle, that lifestyle doesn’t stop just because the scale reads a certain number. Fitness last a lifetime.
What can you do to make this journey as amazing as you can?
Make a Commitment to Yourself
You must make a commitment to yourself to stick with the process.
In the end, your results are up to you and you alone, it’s up to you to commit to doing the work.
Figure Out Your Why
One of the most important things you can do if you’re just beginning your fitness journey is to figure out the reason you started, what is the driving force behind it? Make those goals about health and fitness and less about appearances.
Set S.M.A.R.T Goals
It is important to understand that reaching those goals can take time. One of the best ways to ensure you achieve fitness goals is to set smaller goals along the way. We all remember in school learning about S.M.A.R.T goals, try applying that to fitness.
- Specific. Write down exactly what you want to accomplish.
- Measurable. Whether you want to lift a certain weight, run faster or hit a weight goal, find a way to keep track of your success to get there.
- Achievable. Make your goal reasonable. Be realistic with yourself about what you can achieve with the time you have.
- Realistic. Set goals that are true to your life. Whether it’s playing longer with kids, or the sense of sticking to something for longer than a week, always remember your goals are “yours” and nothing is off limits.
- Time. Give yourself time to achieve your goals, but set a deadline to keep your progress on track. We all have the same amount of hours minutes and days in the week use them wisely to hit those goals.
Also remember we cannot be perfect all the time, we are human. But remember it’s what you do with those mistakes that determines your success. If you mess up or miss a workout, don’t let this destroy the end goal, you do not have to be perfect, just consistent.
Try and figure out what went wrong, and get back on track. Commit to your fitness journey. Keep going!
