Everyone wants to be healthier, have more energy, and look better. But how? What is the key to my health and fitness results? The answer is simple:
Consistency in your diet, in your workouts, in your sleeping routine, and in your mental attitude will lead to the best results possible. Consistently moving towards your goals will help you achieve them faster than anything else.
Just don’t confuse consistency with perfection.
As mentioned, one important thing to consider that we often overlook, is your mindset. Your brain is the key to your health and fitness goals, so if you want to start making changes physically, then it’s important to look at how you’re mental game is — taking small steps but being consistent. It all starts in your head!
First, a healthy diet rich in lean protein and whole grains will provide you with energy for your day, and to succeed in your workouts. Sounds easy, right? Start small, and choose one area of your nutrition to focus on first. Second, make a plan to work out three times per week at an intensity level that challenges you, but allows you to recover and keep moving! You can’t go from doing nothing all day to working out hard every day without becoming overtrained. In order to grow stronger, your body needs time to recover between workouts. Find a workout routine that fits into your lifestyle and stick with it! Exercise should be something fun instead of a chore – find ways to enjoy it! You’ll feel happier throughout the day and it should help you stay motivated to achieve your health and fitness goals.
So how do you stay consistent?
Just keep showing up.
Enlist a friend to be your accountability person. Or a coach. Or a family member.
If you can keep showing up, you’ll notice that your body will start feeling better and better with every workout – not just because of what’s happening to your muscles, but because of how you fuel your body with good food and how good you feel mentally too!
In order to get the most out of your health and fitness goals, you have to start with a plan. Finding out what works best for you is the key, because as we know, a one size fits all approach rarely works. It takes time, patience, and a lot of exploring to figure out which methods work best for you. The solution is to set small, attainable goals that gradually build momentum.
