Stay On Track And Reach Your Goals
It virtually never fails: about 6 weeks into a health and
fitness program, most people begin to lose motivation,
become less focused, and ultimately revert to old habits.
In many cases this means they stop exercising and begin to
fall back into the trap of eating an unhealthy diet.
Needless to say, this lull in motivation has to be overcome
if you’re to achieve your long-term fitness goals.
The good news is that the longer you are able to stick with
your program, the more likely you are to make the type of
permanent lifestyle changes that lead to lasting success.
So if you’re stuck in a bit of a rut, if you feel your
motivation slipping, here are a couple quick ways to
refocus your efforts and get back on track.
1. Get your calendar out. Write down on the calendar which
days you are going to exercise and block out the target
time to do it. It is extremely important that you take the
time to actually writing this down, especially if you’re
prone to procrastination. As I’ve said before, we make all
kinds of appointments in our daily lives and we keep them.
Make an appointment with yourself for your own health and
fitness—and stick to it!
2. Make time. The number 1 excuse people give for not
sticking to their programs is that they simply can’t find
the time. Well, let me make this as clear as I can: don’t
bother “looking” for the time to train and plan your
nutrition and supplement programs—it’s not there. You need
to “make” time for these priorities in your life. Enough
3. Plan your nutrition. The key to eating a healthy diet is
planning. When you’re hungry and there’s no healthy food
nearby, you’ll eat what you can get . . . and usually what
you can get is fast food that isn’t very good for you. Have
a well-focused plan for keeping yourself nourished
throughout the day. Bring healthy snacks wherever you go,
be it work, school, or wherever. Use Meal Replacements to make eating wisely even
