Starting Something New

This week I wanted to talk about getting started towards a goal. The thing is most people I meet are not ready to start down a path towards fitness. Most people I meet are not usually interested in putting in the effort to achieve a big fitness goal. Whether its holding a plank for five minutes. doing a handstand. running a half marathon. Setting a big goal, most people don’t do that. most people are lazy. They are unmotivated. Why bother working out. It honestly makes me really sad.

I have seen movement CHANGE lives. It can be so healing. I want to share how exercise has helped me. But most people are not ready to start down a fitness journey, or start taking their health and their bodies range of motion seriously.

If you want to be ready, or your trying to find the motivation to be ready, I hope these tips help you….

  1. Set a goal that excites you but make sure it is one specific, achievable goal. I will run a mile without stopping in a month. I will do 25 push ups in a row. whatever it is, get excited about you achieving it.
  2. Think about how to include that goal in your life, what you need do to make it happen, and then put a timeframe on it. You dont want to say im going to lose some weight, instead say ” I will lose 5 pounds this month”
  3. Break your goal into small, easy tasks and set regular reminders.
  4. Give yourself accountability by hiring a coach and telling people in your life about you goal and how you will achieve it. Use your family and friends as support – tell them about your goals and encourage them to help keep you motivated.
  5. Make a vision board that you see every day, tell yourself you can achieve it
This is a little sassy but you know what I mean!

What to do if you lose motivation

Setbacks are normal, but developing resilience can help you carry on and pick up where you left off. Here are some tips to help you find your motivation again:

  • Review your goals and see if they are realistic in the timeframe you have set. You may need to break your goal down further into smaller and more achievable goals.
  • Remember why you wanted to get motivated or reach that goal in the first place.
  • Take motivation from others – feel inspired by reading a book, talking to your mentor or friends or family who have reached similar goals to the ones you have set.
  • Sometimes you just need to take a break and start afresh.

One of the best ways to set yourself accountable is to get a coach! seriously, lets talk i can help you!

I can be your motivation!
