Long-term consistency can be boring, but is the most effective way to achieve your health and fitness goals. It is important to recognize and avoid when we procrastinate doing the things we should and justify or rationalize the things we know we shouldn't. Maintaining consistency may be difficult because it requires you to change your bad habits, however, these simple steps should help to make it easier to achieve…
1⃣ Be flexible – start with small goals that will help in achieving your long term goals. Don’t let unrealistic expectations get the better of you! Small manageable steps will eventually lead to big achievements! Focus on the journey not the goal at the end! Remember to leave room for occasional but small indulgences.
2⃣ Change your environment – Set yourself up for success by making alterations to the food you buy, the places you go, the people you associate with and how you spend your time. If the temptation isn’t there it can’t affect you! Make healthy habits your go to and your progress will be easily noticeable!
3⃣ Track your progress – make it fast and easy to visualize based on your lifestyle and daily schedules. Simple ideas include setting reminders, tracking the days you exercise, the days you cook at home instead of eating out, how many hours of sleep you get. Make it simple so that you don't focus on pounds and inches!
4⃣ Be accountable – tracking your weekly goals and having a support system will help to keep you accountable! It applies positive pressure to help motivate you to keep going and stay on targets.
