Staying active and positive can sometimes be a hard goal that people set for themselves. Unfortunately, we can’t always be happy and positive all the time, especially when we have that goal in mind. Sometimes we have bad days and that goal seems so far away it’s almost impossible!
Here at WAMH Fitness we want to ensure our clients have an enjoyable and sustainable health journey. Our health transformation begins within our minds and the attitude we have towards our fitness goals so, we have provided some great tips to help you keep your mind healthy and positive!
Set small and weekly goals, both for food and training
“If I train hard 3 times this week, I can go out to dinner and have a glass of wine”
Don’t compare yourself to others
The only person you should be comparing yourself to is the person you were yesterday, last week, last month, last year.
Get excited about the little wins
“I didn’t eat my usual packet of chips this week, I’m proud of myself!”
Stay off the scales
Progress and strengthening your body can take some time, don’t set yourself up for failure and set your weigh ins for every month, not every week.
Take before and after photos
Seeing a visualisation of your progress can motivate you to keep going that extra mile when things start to get tiring or tough.
Make sure you have a ‘why?’
“Why do I want to be healthier/stronger/fitter/skinnier?”
Visualise the outfit you want to look good in
Keep it out as a reminder and hang that outfit where you can see it daily.
Train in the morning
You want it to be the first on your to-do list and not leave it to last! If you have time in the evenings… train again!
It’s important to not be so hard on yourself as you work towards your fitness goals. As long as you keep on trying then you are not failing. WAMH Fitness will always encourage everyone to find their inner lion and give everything a go with all their heart.
