I hear and read constantly about how some people are putting time limits on their goals. These goals are not just fitness oriented, but go along with their every day lives.
I have one question for those who put time limits on their goals: "If you do not reach your goal within the time limit you have placed on yourself, will you stop trying to reach it?"
Stop placing restrictions on yourself and start achieving and reaching your goals.
I teach a technique that mirrors a ladder. The first step on the ladder is your first goal, and each consecutive step moving up the ladder are goals that will help you to reach the top of the ladder which is your ultimate goal. Make your goals simple and realistic. Do not place a time limit on reaching any of the goals. The true realization of your goals will come when you can see them and you are actively taking steps to achieve them. Everyone will take a step or two backward on occasion; but don't lose sight of the original goal. There will always be challenges and the occasional plateau; but do not get discouraged. Change things up on occasion and have fun. This is your path; a path that was chosen by you. Talk to others; get input on what you might be able to do to keep on track. Stay focused and always find ways to stay motivated. Motivation matters!
Things that will help you stay motivated are:
*avoid fad diets (you will find hundreds of "diets" that others will swear by, avoid the "quick fixes");
*avoid weight loss products that alter your diet;
*focus on a lifestyle change;
*incorporate a balanced diet with a regular exercise routine.
Staying focused and staying fit will keep you vibrant and agile.
Get plenty of rest (sleep), avoid undue stress, and don't be afraid to cheat on your diet at least one day per week. It is acceptable to reward yourself for hard work without over indulging. Look forward to your cheat day; it is better to cheat once rather than giving in to daily cravings.
Enjoy your fitness routine and bring a friend whenever you can. Motivation is much easier if you have someone to share it with.
And, always remember MOTIVATION MATTERS!
