Your attitude can be the difference between achieving your goals and failing them. If you want to meet your fitness goal to lose weight, then you need to push yourself, eat healthy, get to the gym, and walk in with a positive attitude.
Start out by writing down a list of your goals; keep them somewhere you can see them and reflect on them daily. Break your big goals into smaller goals, Ariana Fotinakis, personal trainer with Trainerize.me, says. “It's much less overwhelming to tackle lots of little goals than it is to stare at one BIG goal.” You should also announce your goals to family and friends, Bianca Carew, personal trainer with Trainerize.me , says. “Telling everyone about what exactly you are going to achieve and in what time frame means you're less able to back out when things get tough.”
Keep yourself motivated by tracking your progress and rewarding yourself when you reach milestones. Change up your workout routine and join a group fitness class or find a fitness buddy to hold you accountable. Make sure that you commit to regular check-ins with your workout buddy so you can update each other on your progress, Fotinakis says.
