During the holiday season it can be tough to stick to your fitness plans when there’s so much going on. It’s also the time of the New Year’s resolution that may include a commitment to a healthier lifestyle or a weight loss goal. If you really want to make it happen, then these tips will help you get started and keep you on track.
1.Set new goals: For continued and sustainable success, keep on rewriting and redesigning your undefined goals and it doesn’t have to be all about weight loss. Holding Forearm Stand in yoga class or running a half-marathon do not have to be far-off fantasies; start training to reach your new goals now.
2. Make new routines: Changing up your workout days every week works for some, but a lack of routine can hinder your commitment and progress. Even if you’re trying out new training methods, make a point to work out on certain days every week.
3. Pay in advance: It’s hard to bail out of a workout class when you’ve already handed over your hard-earned cash. Even if you’re weary of signing up ahead of time, it makes a big difference when it comes time to head out the door and actually make moves at your workout. The best intentions sometimes fade, but it’s harder to say no when the money is already spent.
4. Track your progress: Hold yourself accountable to your fitness schedule, and make a point to journal every workout. Something as small as jotting down the time you spent working out or the number of calories you burned leaves you feeling accomplished. Even better, you can see how far you’ve come and how much you’ve improved week after week. Also, working with a personal trainer can help with both consistency and accountability.
5. Get friends on board: Saying no to a happy hour in place of a workout won’t happen when you’re striking out on your own. Get a group of friends involved to work out at the gym, head to yoga, or go on a long hike together. You’ll be less likely to switch things around if you’re letting people down and the plan is already in place.
