Do you like to just wing it on a daily basis? Are you the kind of person who doesn't mind just going by how you feel in order to get things done? If you don't have a plan, you are free for any opportunities to come between you and your goals.
This of this example, you hit the vending machine around 3 pm or go to the infamous snack drawer, pull out some candy and then you might over indulge just a little. Going to the gym might seem silly when you feel like you "over did ii and you convince yourself to go in the morning.Yet that alarm goes off and well you didn't get up. It starts creating this vicious cycle that you need to kick in the butt fast.
Take the time to plan some things out before you allow yourself to get unorganized. Sometimes when you are faced with too many decisions, you don't always choose the best one out of convenience. The best and easiest example I can use is when you get home from work. You can either get changed and go to the gym or you can sit on the couch and start to relax. If you had your gym bag ready, clothes out and a routine to automatically get going, chances are you would make it to the gym 80% of the time. However, if you had nothing ready, you might just find a "reason" to skip training for the day.
Knowing that you have the power to make the decisions to enhance your training might be easier than you think. The first thing you can do is find an accountabili-buddy! Most of the time people hire personal trainers with that as one of their main reasons. Sometimes you need to know that you have someone waiting on you to be there. Also, a trainer is there to keep you motivated and providing you with knowledge and education to make you better.
Once you find your friend for the gym, create a schedule. Make it become habit that you meet at the same times and days together. It takes 21 days to create a habit so start making small changes that will help you reach that goal! Once you start to see changes in your body, that habit is now a positive reinforcement for you to stay on track. Learn that the journey of your fitness is a beautiful thing. Take photos, compare your past and embrace where you are at today!
Fitness is not one size fits all. You need to find what works for you and your lifestyle. Training and eating healthy is not a chore, it's a change that brings on goodness in your life.
