Dont ever Derail Your Fitness Goals, period. Life always finds a way to throw a few curveballs our way when we feel like we can’t take anything more.
Whether it be in your professional or professional life, you never know when something will knock you down a notch and leave you feeling down. It’s in these challenging times where our fitness and health goals might switch to the backburner and be avoided.
But you shouldn’t let life take over and sabotage your personal health goals. You should use it as motivation to stay on track and kick your butt to find a way to make your fitness schedule work.
When life brings you down and you need a little extra boost in staying on track, here are some things to look into:
1. Make the Most Out of The Time You Have
Sometimes, our workout time can be limited because of the other things that are going on in our lives. If work is busy and our personal life is demanding much of our time and energy, then just make the most out of the time you have. You can still stay physically active when you’re at a loss for time.
Find a workout that doesn’t take up too much time that can be done at your desk, beside your bed, or when you have 15 spare minutes.
For your meals, you should try and plan ahead before the week even starts. By taking a few minutes when you have the time to plan your meals, you’ll make the most out of the time you have but still eat healthy.
2. Find Your Favorite Piece of Equipment
Nothing makes you dread a workout more than a workout or piece of equipment you hate. Personally, the idea of lifting free weights makes me dread going to the gym and has even resulted in me skipping a workout.
Eventually, I realized that there are tons of workout equipment available today and you can look around the market for the one that excites you. I recently found the rowing machine and it completely reinvented the way I workout.
I enjoy using this machine, look forward to my workouts, and can feel how effective it is for my body. You can find a machine (or machines) that you enjoy so you don’t dread working out.
3. Consider Hiring a Personal Trainer
If you need a workout partner and an extra little kick in the butt to get in gear, then a personal trainer is a great option for you. They are knowledgeable in what they do and make a living from getting people excited about working out.
They will even teach you about the things you should know as far as the workouts you do, the most effective routine, and what your diet should look like.
4. Find Someone to Influence You
I hate the word ‘Influencers’ and – I’ll admit – most aren’t worth the hype that surrounds them. But online fitness influencers can actually be quite helpful and can serve as a free resource for you.
Fitness influencers often share their workout routine, the equipment they use, and the food they are eating. By following their social channels, you can become more knowledgeable (for free) and use them as a source of motivation.
Social media accounts that promote healthy living as a way of life can actually be quite motivational for people who need a restart on their personal health.
5. Focus On A New Vegan Diet
Vegan diets are very popular right now and can really help you meet your personal health goals.
There are so many new brands making Vegan food and supplements that are delicious and affordable. You can easily become a Vegan and adapt the health benefits that come along with it.
There are tons of resources online about new Vegan diets to help you find out how this lifestyle can help you live a happy, healthy life.
