Tips to Stay on Track With Your Workout Routine

SHARE & COMMENT

jume workoutExercising and new workout routines come with their own challenges.

One of these is being self-accountable. Self-accountability is important in all aspects of life if we are to experience success and exercising is no different.

One of the best ways to stay accountable for your workouts is to create a workout calendar that can tract all your workouts monthly.

Every time you complete a workout, eat a healthy meal or take your supplements, cross it off! Make your workouts and food prep time as “appointments” during your week just like you would for work meetings, family events etc.

It’s highly motivating to see how much you can cross off and keep progressing.

You have a visual representation of your accomplishments. You’ll get a rush and enjoy glancing at your calendar when you’ve worked out 8 out of the last 13 days. Seeing your progress first hand will help you to stay on track.

Each day that you complete a workout, make a check mark on that day on your calendar. At the end of the month, add up all the days and write it down. This helps to keep track of how many times you’ve exercised during the weeks and months.

Overcoming complacency is another challenge that you must be cautious of if you wish to be successful with your new exercise/workout routine or diet.

Long-term success, consistent improved healthy eating and exercise habits are not physical issues, they are mental ones.

Rarely do people make conscious decisions to stop exercising, however anyone who has stopped exercising began with just “one miss”. That one seemingly insignificant “miss” leads to another, then another and before you know it you’ve become a “couch slouch”…a non-exerciser.

Missing one workout does not hurt that bad physically…it’s the mental damage you will have to deal with. Missing just one workout breaks the habit you have created of training.

Exercising, like all things in life comes with ups and downs. If you are going to succeed with your exercise routine or healthy eating plan you must make a serious commitment to seeing it through.

It’s always wise to keep it simple and doable. Understand that losing weight/fat or getting into shape with your exercise routine is not set aside for single events in your life or even seasonal.

In order to stay strong and fit you must commit yourself to a lifetime event. You need to be in this for the long haul.

Know that it is not a question of if you will experience flagging motivation and need a boost, it’s more like when it will happen…because it will happen. That’s normal. A good strategy to quash the pity-party before it starts is to think of others and draw from their strength. Any friends that are fighting a serious disease or disability of some sort are perfect sources to draw inspiration and motivation from. Tap into their courage and determination to give you the boost you need to get back on track.

Whatever you do as you move forward with your diet or workout routine, be prepared for change and be prepared to adapt to it. If things don’t seem to be working…don’t give up…change course.

Remember you don’t lose at the game unless you give up…

“Our greatest weakness lies in giving up”. There is always “one more time” at our disposal, don’t waste it.

“When you do fall off the wagon (your diet or miss a workout) don’t fall into the negative, self-defeating bashing party. There is nothing negative about until you assign something negative to it. Focus on the moment, pick yourself up and get back in the saddle. It’s all about perception.
