Set yourself fitness goals! When setting goals we associate them mostly toward aesthetics. Try setting yourself goals in your abilities to perform a certain exercise; in strength, agility, speed or sport. This is a lot more fulfilling and the aesthetic results will follow.
Keep yourself accountable! Buy a cheap journal or notebook to use as a food diary. Healthy eating and finding what works for your body can be difficult so self-reflection & improvement is the way to go. Write down every single thing you eat each day (even if it is a bit naughty) to keep yourself accountable and look back on. This will help you recognise any areas that can be improved on or any foods that you can substitute for a better alternative.
Keep motivated! Motivation is all mindset. My motivation is the feeling I get after a good workout. It is honestly like a high and keeps me coming back for that feeling every day. To get to this point create a positive mindset about exercise by doing what you love. Choose your favourite exercises – if you don’t like exercise find a gym with a great atmosphere, get a training buddy or take your workout outdoors. Just ensure you are enjoying some aspect of your training, stick to it and incorporate it into your routine. After no time loss of motivation will be a thing of the past!
