Over the past two weeks, I have shared two mistakes to avoid in having a consistent exercise and healthy eating program. The third mistake, in my opinion, is the most important and can be a game changer.
Not Identifying the Right Motivation
So often, I hear women say, “I just can’t seem to stay motivated.” Have you ever said that? If so, you may be trying to stay motivated by something that does not even motivate you. Stop for a moment and think about that statement.
Let me give you an example. Maybe you lost weight and exercised regularly 15 years ago because you were trying to get fit for a class reunion, beach trip or wear a certain size pants. However, today, those things are not that important to you if you really think about it. If you struggle to stay motivated, take a few minutes to write down all of the benefits you could receive from exercising and eating healthy.
- To have more energy for your children and husband
- To manage your stress
- To have confidence in yourself
- To honor God with your body and food
- To live a longer life to enjoy your family
Remember this: What motivated you at one time in your life may not be motivation for you today. Dig deep in your soul and think about why you really want to change and allow that to become your new focus and motivation.
Imagine what it would be like if you had the following:
- A weight loss plan for your unique lifestyle
- An exercise program that fits your busy schedule
- Guidelines to organize your time for healthy eating, exercise and personal faith
- A plan to maintain a healthy weight and balance with all of life’s professional and personal responsibilities
If you would are ready and to have a personal plan, I would love to help you. Email me at Crystal@yourfitnessdesigner.com and place consultation in the subject line and we can set up a time for a FREE CONSULTATION.
I want to help you learn how to set realistic goals, follow a plan that works for you and not someone else, and identify the right motivation so that you will have a consistent exercise and healthy eating plan.
