I love the idea of a clean slate and new beginnings. Maybe that’s why I enjoy the start of a new year and how it makes everyone want to better themselves. A very common goal is to pursue a healthy lifestyle. Who doesn’t want to feel and look good? Below are 5 tips for making the transition to a healthier you!
It’s true what they say abs are made in the kitchen! I never understood this until I graduated high school. I was so active during my teenage years that I never had to worry about eating healthy. After high school, I struggled because my eating habits were all over the place. I’ve recently been going to a nutritionist and it has helped out SO much! I am more aware of what I eat and have enjoyed tracking my progress on the app Lifesum.
Create a schedule
I solely believe creating a schedule is key to success. At the beginning of the week, I will check all the classes that are offered at my gym, pick my favorites, write them in my planner then plan around them. Eventually, it will become second nature.
Take progress pictures
Can’t say I am a fan of taking progress photos especially in the beginning because I see my end goal and it seems like I will never get there BUT I swear they come in handy when you need some extra motivation.
Make everyday count
Think positive! Don’t get discouraged if you couldn’t make it to the gym that day. Nobody is perfect and sometimes life just happens. Take a walk around your neighborhood instead. Maybe try meditating or yoga.
New workout clothes
I know, I know you’ve heard this one a million times. But honestly, what’s better than new workout clothes to motivate you? A lot of things but let us pretend… I personally feel good when I look good. I get more confidence and determination.
