What is the Key to long lasting results!
It takes consistency, self-enjoyment and goal setting.
I will speak plainly about what I think about making results last. What I have noticed is most people do not have patience when it comes to weight loss or being able to see results fast enough. I can seriously empathize with those people, especially after having a child and then now going onto having my second, I would like to get back to looking and feeling like my usual self. It is not usually realistic to get back in shape in one or two months, especially if you are doing it properly.
I understand it can be a discouraging road to where you ultimately want to be. So which path is the best path for you to be able to get there as quickly and painlessly as possible?
Well I will share with you some tips and guidance as to how I think you should take this approach to make sure you get there and don’t give up along the way!
For starters…Do not try every fad diet possible out there, personally I do not believe in diets. Eating in moderation and proper portion control is key to maintaining a healthy well balanced diet. I also believe in treating yourself every now and again. Use the 80/20 rule, eat well 80% of the time and then enjoy something every now and again.
Stay committed to something for at least 3 months before you say this isn’t for you. It takes your body time to adapt to certain workouts and get comfortable in a program. Find a class or an activity you enjoy doing and make sure to attend at least three times a week. With my clients I always use the calendar approach, print out a monthly calendar and write down your workouts before they happen and then once you have completed the workout check it off. It is all about planning in advance and those checkmarks feel so rewarding.
Make sure you’re enjoying your exercise regime and being held accountable for it, to maintain it long term. When it comes to nutrition it is the same thing, everybody falls off every now and again. That being said nutrition plays a huge role in our health, make sure you start something you feel like you can continue for the rest of your life.
The key component to making things last is to realize this is not a one week or one month fast track to getting you to lose a little bit of weight or to making you look great for one event. This should be something you love doing, feel great afterwards and want to stick with for the rest of your life. That’s right… a lifetime commitment.
My suggestion to get kick started in the right direction is to find somebody who will make you accountable and committed and who ultimately cares about your health and who makes it fun and exciting for you to keep coming back for more!
Every trainer has their own personal believes in fitness and wellness. I do not believe in fad diets, I think commitment and dedication is important and with the right motivation in the right direction, everybody can get to they’re goals in a realistic time frame while enjoying getting there.
Do something today your future self will thank you for!
