1. If your goal is Weight Loss, break your goal down on how you are going to get there. For example say it is 30 pounds you want to release. Rather that focusing on 30 pounds why not start with scheduling in your workouts for the week. Make a goal that you are going to get in 3 workouts and plan them. This can be done the same for your meals, plan them and prep them. Focusing on how you will CRUSH your goal will help you get there faster. Overall remember how long it took you to get where you are today and remind yourself that this is a Journey it will not happen over night so do not be hard on yourself!
2. Surround yourself with positive like minded people. It is our choice how we live each day. However sometimes our surroundings can be negative or full of unhealthy choices. Take a step back and look at those who are already healthy and positive or those who always support you. Make sure you keep them in your daily life. If you feel you have no one, that is okay! Try meeting others in your next class at the gym!
3. Read!!! You made the decision to get healthy and it is the perfect time to educate your mind. Reading motivational and self help books will help your mindset. When making changes to your lifestyle so much of your surroundings can mess with your goals. However when you are always reading it truly can help your mindset. Last year this was one of my new years goals to read 1 book per month on self improvement! I did not know when I made this what it would do for me to achieve the rest of goals!!! After the reading I did the last 12 months I now believe that your mindset is key!!
Your thoughts are the key to your success!!
Remember not to be hard on yourself. No one is asking you to be perfect, so many of us are quick to quit when we are not. It is consistency over perfection! You can do this you have already made the decision.
