Maintaining Your Fitness is The Goal

Reaching your fitness goals is a great accomplishment. It takes consistent effort to make that happen. The question is are you maintaining those goals? Is good health a continued priority and lifestyle?

Fitness is a Lifestyle

Fitness is not meant to be a temporary fix but a lifestyle of health and wellness. It may feel nice to rock that swimsuit for a season but fitness should mean more than that.

True fitness success happens when you live it daily. Consistent healthy eating and regular exercise are part of your normal routine. And getting off track for too long doesn't feel right when living a healthy lifestyle. Fitness becomes a priority and excuses no longer get in the way.

Healthy Habits For Life

I've seen too many people succeed at reaching goal weights, reduced body fat, and improved health and throw it all away. Somehow, the mentality of returning to a few unhealthy habits is seen as harmless. However, without discipline this can snowball into more than a few poor choices and before long you find yourself right back where you started or worse. 

The purpose of dumping unhealthy habits is to learn and keep new and healthier methods. And maintaining healthier habits is where the struggle can continue. Adopting healthy habits means keeping them for life. Life is the event you're getting in shape for not bikini season.

Forget the clothes and stand naked in front of a mirror. Standing in your truth will let you know if you're doing a great job maintaining your fitness. I'm not talking about the body and skin changes naturally occurring with aging, weight loss, or pregnancy. We all know the difference. You also know if you are really living a healthy life.

The Bottom Line

Your body keeps the most accurate record of what you're eating and drinking regardless of what you write down. It also knows if exercise is lacking. Your body is smart like that.

Reaching fitness goals is possible when a healthy lifestyle is being maintained. In fact, maintaining your fitness is the goal.

If you have reached your goal before you can do it again. This time, look at the process of getting fit as the goal and maintain that. Instead of having to repeat getting back in shape, why not just stay in shape.
