So, if you are determined to enhance or regain your fitness this year, I, Nitin Khanna will suggest to all to follow the tips as described below for achieving your fitness goals…
- Create Small, Realistic Goals
Making efforts to lose your weight is an intimidating task. It’s best to begin with small, achievable goals that are realistic. With all the eating routine prevailing fashions out there, you should be thinking that you will never eat the dessert or a carb again and these will be out of the question forever.
When you begin with such tough goals, it is more likely that you may give up as they don’t enable room for human error. Besides setting up the goals and practicing them for 7 days a week, try starting with 4 – 5 days.
- Get a Trainer or Find a Workout Buddy
Spending money on a personal trainer is great motivation to stay on the top of all your training appointments. Other good option is to find a workout buddy. A friend with a similar goal of weight loss or getting into shape serves as a great motivation. By exercising with your friend, you can more likely keep up with the routine.
- Keep a Food Journal
This is one of the most important tips to stay focused on your fitness goals. By maintaining a food journal, you can realize that how much you ate throughout the day. Hence, the journal will give you an estimation of each and every thing you put in your mouth.
- Track Your Progress
It is vital to keep a record of your success. If you planned to lose substantial weight in a week and you lose a lesser than that, then don’t get depressed. Appreciate that you had lose some of your weight.
I recommend that people step on the scale once in a week. Select a time, for example morning, and stick that weekly tracking system. Remember that your weight will not fluctuate during the day and week. It is vital not to obsess regarding the number on the scale. On the contrary, it is important to focus on fitting of clothes and how you feel after wearing.
- Reward Yourself
Rewarding yourself is incredible. If you have planned an exercise plan for a week and stuck to a healthy diet, treat yourself to something that doesn’t counterbalance your fitness goal.
When you have smaller goals, you will have more chances for celebrating your success. Treat yourself to something that compliments your new shape or some new workout gear.
