At some point in your life(roadblocks on your fitness journey), disaster strikes, and you fall into a mountain of rubbish. No matter how low, you must get up and move on with your life! Maybe that catastrophe will take you to new paths full of new opportunities you have never seen before. Fitness does not change either. At some point your fitness journey will slow down. How we respond to these disasters can often lead us in new directions!
Instead of being discouraged at the point of presentation, we explore six ways you can rearrange your setbacks to take you further on your fitness journey. The key to reaching your goals is a positive mindset!
Little changes make a huge difference
Small achievements often lead us to complete bigger and more dangerous tasks. If you are in a low place, think of a few small victories you can achieve to get you on the right track. Small fixed changes make more difference than any big goal. Start small to see the big benefits!
Getting out of bed in the morning to work, Solution: Make it a habit
When eating and exercising are driven by intentions, it is easy to interrupt. However, when you have a habit, you are less likely to fall out of the band. Moreover, your body and mind are accustomed to healthy and unhealthy habits – so over time you will find it easier and easier to stick to those healthy habits.
It is important to set aside time during the day to go out, run, or go to the gym so that the more consistent you are, the easier it will be to achieve your goals.
Valleys and Peaks
No matter what journey you take, there will be ups and downs. Life is never a path, it is a twisted, windy road that takes you in every direction. Low scores shape us as to who we are as we reach our new highs. The most important part of the road is moving towards your goals!
You do not see the scale movement, Solution: Go back and reflect
This is the where a working out log can come in handy. When you keep track of your diet and exercise, you will be able to look back on why you did not see the desired weight loss results.
I recommend taking a step back and analyzing why you are not getting the amount you need from your exercise routine.
Whether you want to increase the number of minutes on your feet each day or take in fewer calories, keeping track of your exercise and nutrition can help you identify the cause of your loss. Keep in mind that re-results require patience, so if you feel you are doing everything right, go ahead and see if your body needs some more time to adjust.
The Glass is Half Full
We know the journey is not smooth sailing, but do you not have a better time than the journey with a positive attitude? Focus on the good and move on to new heights!
Not sure where to start, Solution: Commit to a structured diet and exercise plan
It is important to have a clear strategy to reach your long-term diet and exercise goals. This is where a structural plan comes into play. There are plenty of online resources and nutrition specialists who can help you decide what you need to do with your diet to achieve your weight loss goals.
The same is true for exercise. Whether you want to start a daily walk or contribute to a strength and stretching habit, find a plan online or call a trainer or coach for help. With a regular routine, every training day is just as important as the day before.
Knowing that you will benefit every day will help motivate you to exercise on a daily basis.
Your Goals, Your Pace
The greatest part about your goal line is that they are entirely unique to you. You have to adjust them and change them as you like. Reaching a goal in a short period of time can be amazing, and it takes time for the most rewarding goals. The longer the time, the greater the chance of disaster. Make sure you adapt your life to your needs.
Action is the everything
No matter what happens on your journey, moving forward is the only option. You are the one who has the time and effort to get where you want to be. Decide what you can do now to set the direction and make a plan to reach your goals. Take control of your journey by taking the driver’s seat and steer your journey in the right direction!
Remember your why?
You had reason to decide to set your commitment or goal. Sometimes things happen in our lives and we realize that change is needed. Deciding in that moment is easier to follow and take the time to change. When it’s difficult, think about the reasons why you started your fitness journey first.
