In a world that is so abundant with to do lists and distractions, you may find it difficult to stay consistent with things that matter most to you. Your personal health and fitness is very important. However, sometimes it tends to fall out of focus when it comes to seeing your priorities.
I’ve recently experienced such a setback in my own health and fitness. What are some things you do to get back on the bandwagon so to speak? Here’s what I’ve done in the past, and here’s what I’ve started now to get back into my routine.
Rediscover Your Why
Why you choose to do what you do is vastly important. If you go to the gym for fun or go for an end goal of competing someday, those are two fairly different motivators.
Eating clean may not be easy, but discovering why you do it will help keep you consistent.
I personally enjoy the way I feel when I achieve small successes in the gym or in the kitchen. There’s nothing more satisfying than putting in hard work and just feeling accomplished, regardless of what the scale says.
Find A Friend
The times I’ve been most consistent with staying on track are when I’ve had someone to share the goals and progress with. For months at a time I would wake up at 4:30am and go to the gym with a friend.
Circumstances have changed which don’t allow for that anymore with the same person. I’ve reached out to some other acquaintances to see if I can grab anyone’s interest.
Message your family or friends and see what their goals are. See if they want to join you and help support each other.
Instagram is actually one of the most Saturdays social media platforms with health and fitness. People post anything from meals and workouts to supplements and clothing.
I don’t know about you, but when I see people doing what they love and remember how I felt when I would do that same thing, it makes a big difference.
Find someone to follow or subscribe to and continue on with them and their journey as you step back into yours.
Regardless of what your current circumstance is, there’s always a way to get back on track and keep going towards your fitness goals.
