Have you stayed committed to your goals?

Many of us started off the year with a dedicated routine and clear path to success for our heath goals. But as the weeks and months have passed, it’s possible that some of us have fallen off track. It can begin by just missing a few days at the gym because of busy days, and then suddenly you’ve missed a couple of weeks. Or maybe you decided to reward yourself with a few cheat meals and now you’re back to old eating habits. This happens to all of us, but many of us can get back on track with a few simple tips.

Workout today!

Whatever you have planned today, make sure you take even just 15 minutes to do a workout. It can be a short walk, run, or bike ride but just make sure you do something that will give you a boost in energy and confidence. What you don’t want to do is jump back into the workout you were doing right before you stopped. This can often lead to sore muscles and even injuries. So, take it easy when you jump back into it but just get started!

Clean out your pantry

When we’ve allowed ourselves a few bad meals, we often begin to re-collect bad foods. Go through your pantry and toss anything that is not in line with your nutritional plan. Even if you haven’t opened it, toss it. It’s a lot easier to give into temptation when it’s around. If you don’t want to toss out unopened food, donate it to your local food bank

Remember why you’re doing this

Grab a piece of paper and write out the reasons you started. Maybe it’s to see your grandchildren grow old or maybe it’s to run your first marathon. We all have goals we want to reach. Living a long, healthy life is the only way to make sure you can have the time and energy to do that. Remember to invest in your health before you invest in anything else.
