SUPER EASY TIPS
This month... STAY MOTIVATED TO GET FIT
1 Become an early bird
Life is busy, and the earlier in the day you work out, the fewer things there are competing for your attention.
2 Sleep on it
Go to bed in your workout clothes. If you’re already ready to go when you wake up, you’ll be more likely to head out for that morning run. 3
Set regular, achievable goals. Don’t just focus on your ultimate goal of losing 10lb in a year. Focus on monthly milestones, and celebrate each pound you lose.
4 Be accountable
Enlist a friend to help you. Knowing you have someone to meet at the gym forces you to stick to your routine.
5 Enjoy it
If you don’t like running, then don’t do it. Find an activity you enjoy, such as swimming or playing a team sport. If you’re actually enjoying your exercise, you’re far more likely to stick to it.
6 Set a challenge
Sign up for a race. Having a goal to work towards will keep you moving. It doesn’t have to be extreme – just a 5k run will do. You’ll feel brilliant when you cross the finish line.
7 Focus on yourself
Concentrate on your own target, and don’t worry about what others are doing. People have different goals, but you should do what’s best for you.
8 Time doesn’t matter
Be flexible with your exercise – don’t stress about working out for three hours a day. Plan your workouts around your own schedule – even just a few minutes a day is better than nothing.
9 Forget the past
It doesn’t matter that your exercise routine went out the window last year. Focus on now, believe that you can do it, and prove yourself right.
10 Stay positive
Don’t give up. There will be days when you lose motivation – that’s normal. But don’t let this be the end of your progress. Just pick up the next day and carry on.
