Identifying your obstaclesAcknowledging any possible challenges it’s the best way to prepare for them. We need to know about our obstacles so we can tackle them or have a plan B. My biggest obstacle is time, having two children with entirely different needs makes it difficult to fit everything that I need to do in one day, but once I figured this out, I was able to create a solution.
Be honest with yourselfAsk yourself, why are you embarking on this journey and answer the question honestly. Once I was able to accept the reasons for wanting to embark on a fitness journey, I became more motivated, and I found reasons to eat better and work out. In contrast, previously, I found excuses for eating chocolate and not exercising.
Set realistic goals; baby steps are okChanging habits take time, overcoming insecurities take time, and that’s ok, it’s something that we have to accept. Throughout our fitness journeys, it is essential to remember it takes time to undo all those unhealthy habits and to get to the desired fitness levels. We also need to be realistic with our circumstances, I know that I can only go to the gym when my husband is home but if he is travelling or working late, I can only workout at home.
Make a plan and commit to it
Forget the Scale
Finally, fitness is about preparation and commitment; remember, Fitness is a life journey. Until next time, stay kind, stay safe Julie x
