Stay On Track and Reach
It virtually never fails: about 6 weeks into a health and fitness program, most people begin to lose motivation, become less focused,
and ultimately revert to old habits. In many cases this means they
stop exercising and begin to fall back into the trap of eating an unhealthy diet. Needless to say, this lull in motivation has to be overcome if you’re to achieve your long-term fitness
The good news is that the longer you are able to stick with your
program, the more likely you are to make the type of permanent
lifestyle changes that lead to lasting success.
So if you’re stuck in a bit of a rut, if you feel your
motivation slipping, here are a couple quick ways to refocus your
efforts and get back on track.
1. Get your calendar out. Write down on the calendar which days
you are going to exercise and block out the target time to do it.
It is extremely important that you take the time to actually
writing this down, especially if you’re prone to
procrastination. As I’ve said before, we make all kinds of
appointments in our daily lives and we keep them. Make an
appointment with yourself for your own health and fitness—and
stick to it!
2. Make time. The number 1 excuse people give for not sticking to
their programs is that they simply can’t find the time. Well,
let me make this as clear as I can: don’t
bother “looking” for the time to train and plan your
nutrition and supplement programs—it’s not there. You
need to “make” time for these priorities in your life.
3. Plan your nutrition. The key to eating a healthy diet is
planning. When you’re hungry and there’s no healthy
food nearby, you’ll eat what you can get . . . and usually
what you can get is fast food that isn’t very good for you.
Have a well-focused plan for keeping yourself nourished throughout
the day. Bring healthy snacks wherever you go, be it work, school,
or wherever. Use Meal Replacements to make eating wisely even
