Sticking to your fitness goals and working out consistently is a big challenge. Most likely you are only going to have difficulty when you first begin because it’s not a habit. However, if you can keep consistent for about four weeks, you can definitely form that as a habit and then working out is easy to do.
In this article, you are going to learn about the top five ways to help you stay consistent. Again when you do this for about four weeks you will want to workout and you’ll hate missing your workouts.
Number one, it’s working out in the morning. This is about getting it done with so you can go about the rest of your day with no interruptions. Most people will do better with this setup. However, you might be a person that welcomes an interruption in your day.
Number two, take the most embarrassing picture of yourself. This is probably something you will do more in private, but it really works. Get in the skimpiest outfit your have and take a picture. You will probably not want to see it, but use it as your motivation that something has to change in your life. This method can work really well, especially when you look at it everyday.
Number three, just get yourself dressed. Before you workout, if you can just get your workout clothes on, that can go a long way to having you go through your workout. It’s almost like helping yourself set the tone. When you get a good start, in this case just getting dressed, you are psychologically pushed to complete the full task.
Number four, having an actual monthly plan can make a big difference. For example, if you got a trainer to build you a monthly plan then you will see what you have to do. It’s much easier to see that you only have to exercise 12 days in a month which is less than half. That can motivate you because you’ll see that it’s not as overwhelming as you might think.
Number five, having access to other women. Most women don’t have friends that workout too. But if you can join a community where you talk to other women then that can really help you stay motivated and accountable. There are many options you have on the internet and you should be able to find one for you.
