Want to succeed with your health and fitness goals? Have you ever heard the expression – “Consistency is key?” One thing that you simply cannot overlook when achieving your health and fitness goals is the power of consistency. You can be the hardest worker in the gym, but if that workout only comes around once a week, you’ll be hard pressed to see success and change to your body. You might even jump on the scale feeling discouraged about what is looking back at you.
Have NO FEAR! Consistency is here!
Those who succeed with reaching their health and fitness goals do so by making sure that each and every day, they are taking steps to live the active lifestyle. Even if it they aren’t doing a workout, they are still in the mindset for fitness.
Okay, so you’re one week in and you’ve been working hard. You expect to see changes – right? Not so fast. Realize that while you will definitely be experiencing changes in your body by this point, you may not see them for a few weeks down the road.
It takes time to see visible improvements in the mirror, especially if you have a lot of weight to lose. “Patience is key.” Understand that each day that moves forward with you sticking to your health and fitness goals, the more likely you are going to notice results. “Keep on going you fierce warrior princess!”
Another great way to stay consistent is to make sure that you are keeping a journal. This means recording exactly what you are eating each and every day along with what workouts you are completing and what body parts you are targeting. If you know you have to write it down, you might think twice about skipping over it – or indulging in it if it’s a food we’re talking about.
An added advantage to using a journal is that you can then reflect back on this journal over time, seeing just how far you’ve come. Then when it seems like you aren’t making any further strives, you can review this and see that you clearly are getting closer to your fitness and health goals.
The best thing that you can do is start building positive habits. When waking up to do your morning workout routine becomes as natural as brushing your teeth, you know things will only get easier from here on in. The more good habits you can form, the less you’ll actually have to think about everything. It will start to become as easy as putting on your favorite lipgloss. P.S - You are going to love the way you feel!
Be sure that you are mixing it up. Anyone will get bored and lose patience if they are doing the exact same workout, day in and day out. Don’t let this happen to you. Mix it up every so often. This could mean taking a rock climbing class with your significant other or trying that salsa dance class that you’ve wanted to take for so long. I’m thinking a red dress for salsa on you would look dynamite. The more variety you incorporate into your workout routine, the less bored you will feel and the more your body will respond thanks to the continual variation.
So keep these key tips in mind. Consistency really is the most important factor in driving success, so make sure that you are not overlooking it and you make it a habit. The more consistent you are with your workout regime and health habits, the closer you’ll be to reaching your health and fitness goals.
