5 WAYS TO STICKS TO YOUR FITNESS GOALS IN 2020
09 January 2020
2020 will go down the history as the year of the devastating pandemic Covid-1, year is proving to be hard requiring us to be on top of our fitness game and strengthen our immune system While you are social distancing at home make sure you workout at home every day, even if it for half an hour, don’t break the consistency. Here are 5 easy hacks to stick to your fitness goals and get back in shape like never before:
ONE GOAL AT A TIME
You never reach the top of a hill without taking a step (Unless you are in a helicopter). The point is you have to break down your fitness goals into mini goals so that they are achievable and at the same time motivate you to strive harder. For example, if your goal is to lose 10 Kgs, divide it by 12 months and your target will suddenly look achievable, right?
ACCOUNTABILITY REALLY COUNTS
What’s progress without checks and balances. You have to be hard on yourself when it comes to checking your fitness goals. And if you can’t do it, ask your loved ones like a spouse or sibling to do the job. If you are burning the calories only to be hogging a pizza later in the night, you are really doing a disservice to your fitness goals. Cook healthy meals at home but do give yourself a day in the week to indulge in a home cooked cheat meal.
MAKE IT A JOINT EFFORT
Feeling too bored or demotivated to do workout alone? Ask a family member to join you so that you can motivate each other to be in shape. After all, what is family for? Share, chat and inspire your peer groups, family and friends. By the time this year ends you would have achieved your goals.
PLAN MEALS LIKE YOU PLAN MEETINGS
Do you cancel meetings in the office for trivial things? Why not plan your diet just like you plan other important things in life. Setup a meal plan for every week, this would also help you limit your physical contact from the outside world which would in turn keep you safe at home. The more you make it a chore, the less likely you will go astray from your diet. Stick to the basics as the pros say.
GOOD HABITS LEAD TO CONSISTENT RESULTS
Pick up healthy habits during the year. For example, do some light yoga every morning to kick start your fitness. Long-term habits will yield results during the year, slowly but steadily.
