We’re already 2 weeks into the new year! How many of you have stuck to your goals? It can be tough especially if losing weight is one of your goals for the new year. I have personally stuck with it and have been eating healthy morning to night, but trust me, I know how easy it can be to get into a rut. I know i haven’t really shared the FIT part of My blog, but this year I’m all about it! If you need some extra motivation, keep reading for some tips that i follow to maintain my weight loss goals!
1. Set yourself up for success
Having the right tools is key to achieving any goal. Meal prep so you can grab and go in the mornings without putting a thought into it. Organize your fridge so that breakfasts and lunch are accessible. Put your water bottle/ protein next to the fridge so you don’t forget to fill up! Lay out your workout outfit for the next day. Having to rummage through your closet and drawers will more likely make you feel like you “have nothing to wear” and you’ll prob just stay home. It helps if you have some cute athletic wear. You will feel more confident and ready to power through your workout.
2. Have a support system
Let your family and friends know the goal you are trying to reach. Having someone hold you accountable will have you in the mindset that you need to do this. Join a Facebook or Instagram group that offers encouragement and tips. They may even offer you support throughout the day or week! Getting texts of encouragement help motivate you to get it done.
3. Start small
Saying your goal is to lose 50 lbs this year is great, but don’t set the bar so high. Start with 5 lbs a month. It’s much easier to reach a smaller goal that will eventually lead up to your greater goal. Once you reach that you will feel more successful and motivated.
4. Remember the why
Think about the why. Why did you set this certain goal for yourself? Will it make you happier in the end? Will you feel better? Stay true to yourself and you will be successful.
