Workout Tips: Having a workout buddy can help you stay on track
Attempting to inculcate a healthy and active lifestyle takes time, effort, motivation, patience, and many other aspects. This is especially difficult if you are making these changes after a long history of an unhealthy diet and sedentary lifestyle.
Many people start fitness routines, but stop them when they are tired, don’t like it, or see very little progress. However, to take conscious steps to make this journey enjoyable, stimulating, and doable, you must make the right choices. In this article, we discuss tips and tricks that can help you stay on track with your workout.
Follow these tips to make exercise fun and stay motivated:
1. Set the routine
Establish a rough routine when you eat your meals and when you exercise. Make sure your chosen time period is free on most days. For example, an hour of exercise before or after work. Instead of setting a routine to say 8/9 p.m. As there is a possibility that you may have to attend business, events or other plans that could jeopardize your exercise plans.
2. Stop the “all or nothing” thought process
The problem with this black and white way of thinking is that it prevents any adaptability when life interferes with your plans. And it will happen. When our unreasonable expectations are not met, it causes a lot of despair and a feeling of exhaustion.
3. Set your goal and reconsider it
Your goal could be the weight you’re trying to achieve, your waist size, or even the amount of time you want to lose. It is important to build small, achievable goals and work towards them. It’s also important to remind yourself of your goals throughout the journey to see how far you’re going.
4. Don’t get discouraged
Oftentimes, we can be the reason behind our identity being inhibited. It can be hard to stay on the right track. Furthermore, one may not always lose the same amount of weight through the same amount of effort. It is important not to frustrate yourself when you are unable to perform to the best of your abilities.
5. Find a mate
Social support makes exercise more enjoyable. Organizing walking meetings. Arrange basketball teams, the treadmill, spin sessions at the gym, dance nights or tennis matches. Your companion can also help motivate you if you’re thinking of skipping a day.
6. Avoid monotonous exercises
To keep things fresh and to work out different muscle areas, try a variety of exercises. If you like an elliptical machine, try a stair climber for some cardio instead. During strength training, alternate using machines and free weights. Every week, you don’t need to start from scratch, but you should change your routine a bit.
7. Take pictures
Taking pictures and keeping a journal is a great way to stay motivated to reach your fitness goals. This will provide you with tangible evidence that your instructions are having an effect. To see your progress from all sides, take pictures of the front, sides and back.
In conclusion, patience is key. Making major lifestyle changes and losing significant weight takes time. It is important to be consistent and realistic.
