How to Stick to Your Fitness Routine
Is it usually hard for you to work out on a regular basis? Then you might need some help staying motivated. The FizzUp is going to wipe out all your excuses for not working out by telling you how to stick to your fitness routine.
Be your own priority
When you start a new physical activity, take some time not only to make a wise decision, but especially to understand why you’ve decided to start it. Figure out what’s motivating you most: losing a few extra pounds, gaining muscle mass, keeping your health in check or getting better at another sport or physical activity… Identify what was keeping you from getting serious about working out in the past. Usually, the answer is pretty simple: you didn’t have the guidance you needed and didn’t see any results.
That’s when you make your wellness and physical fitness your top priorities. Write this sentence on several pieces of paper and put them on your fridge, in your wallet or on your desk or nightstand: “I am the only person responsible for the results I get.” This motto helps you stay committed to sticking to your resolutions and keeps you motivated.
To stick to your workout routine, you need to get into new habits. You need 30 days to turn a new routine into an actual habit. So stick to your fitness training schedule with FizzUp for the first 30 days. You won’t be disappointed! Set aside a specific time to do your workout, not to mention three set days a week to work out. For instance, Monday’s workout will set the pace for the rest of the week.
All you have to do is just follow the workout schedule the FizzUp trainer creates just for you. The more punctual and demanding you are at first, the easier it will be for you to stick to this new fitness routine.
Get a clear goal
Be clear about what you want. Ask yourself what it is exactly that you want to change. This is how you can clearly set a realistic goal that gives you enough time to reach it. Losing 20 lb in two weeks is the stuff of dreams. Go about it gradually and don’t set the bar too high, otherwise you might get discouraged.
Remember why you decided to change. If you start to doubt yourself once you get started, you should immediately think about how bad a sedentary lifestyle is for your health, your physique and your state of mind. This method is great way to get you motivated. Also consider taking a photo of yourself when you start your routine. Take another one after six weeks of working out and you’ll be surprised to see that your body has already started to change, as long as you work out regularly.
If you want to lose weight, try taking photos of yourself that you dislike and put them on your kitchen cupboards. Those will make you want to change for good! They’ll help you resist temptation and remind you each and every day that you’re on the path to fulfillment. You can also get inspired by following people who are trying to achieve the same goals on social media.
When it’s time to work out, play down the situation. It’s an activity that you should enjoy and is good for your wellness, letting you free your mind from everyday worries. There’s no need to put pressure on yourself! Listen to a playlist to get you moving to the rhythm of motivating music. Tell yourself that in 20 minutes, or 1% of your day, you’ll be finished and have something to be proud of.
Get your head in the game
To stick to your fitness routine, you need to pay attention to your thoughts. Like to procrastinate? Never put off until tomorrow what you can do today. Why? Because procrastinating gives you a negative image of yourself. You lose your self-confidence because you think that you can’t take action. Take back control and be your own hero.
You are what you think. You have to use your thoughts and beliefs to help you get into new habits. It will be hard for you to stick to a fitness routine if you believe that you’ll never get the results you want. Be kind and supportive to yourself with your thoughts. For instance, keep a journal of everything you’re doing to reach your goal on an everyday basis. Write down the number of calories you burn, the number of reps you do for every exercise and the extra blocks of exercises* you decided to do during your workout… Keep track of your progress while listening to your body. Don’t try to overdo it, just try to do it right.
