If you’re feeling unmotivated and frustrated during the holiday season, you’re not alone. It’s often a struggle for many people to stay healthy and maintain a weight they’re happy with. With all of the tempting holiday foods and cold weather, it’s much easier to just stay in bed, sip on hot cocoa, and watch a fun flick or two! However, your health can’t take a back seat just because it’s the holiday season. To stay committed to positive health, rely on important rules and goals that you’ve made in the past. Implement your own fitness rules in the present and you’ll stay healthy all season long.
If you don’t yet have a gym that you like or a trainer that you can trust, it’s time to do your research! Look around your area and compare fitness centers – you need to find one that is local and that also offers a variety of machines and classes that you can take to keep yourself motivated. Find a Chandler personal trainer and you’ll feel a lot better about your overall progress. Not only will a personal trainer keep you motivated because they’ll be great with suggesting goals to accomplish on a weekly and monthly basis, they will also help you stay in shape when you need accountability the most during the holiday season.
Write Down Your Goals and Stay Motivated
A fitness instructor can write down goals for you, but it’s up to you to make them happen. If you have a hard time staying motivated or accomplishing your fitness plans, write your goals down somewhere where you will see them daily. Carry around your goals on a note card or in your planner and pull them out whenever you feel tempted to skip a workout or overeat. You can even tape pictures on the mirror in your bathroom for motivation and have a go-to friend you can call when you need an instant workout booster!
Be Sure to Maintain a Healthy Diet
If you’ve seen the saying that the secret to fitness is 70 percent your diet and 30 percent your exercising routine, it’s because it is true! Both of these elements work in tandem and even though it may take a while to develop the habits of maintaining excellent health, in time it will become easier the more you put it into practice. Head to the gym, stay accountable by having an excellent trainer and friend who will encourage you, and eat healthy foods. In time you’ll be proud of your accomplishments and maintaining a healthy fitness lifestyle all year long will be a lot easier to keep up!
