6 Strategies You Need to Succeed at Getting Fit

Getting fit is one of the most important life decisions you will make. Doing it the right way with the right mindset is what will enable you to reach and maintain that goal. We are in month 4 of the New Year, New You program. How are you doing?

Working on personal fitness goals will come with questions and even concerns. Besides cleaning up your diet and exercise, there are other important factors to consider.

The following strategies will get you moving in the right direction:




6 Strategies You Need to Succeed

Positive mindset - let's start with what you're thinking. Are you a positive person? Do you bash yourself? In order to succeed with your fitness program, it will take a positive attitude. Regardless of how hopeless you may think your life is right now, you need to stay positive about yourself and your efforts. You have the power to change and that is done by choice. Being positive is a daily decision and essential to a healthy body and mind. 

Realistic mindset - are you a dreamer? Do you fall for quick fix gimmicks and fad diets? Halt the unrealistic mindset and time to get your head out of the clouds. You're not going to drop 20lbs or get muscular in a week. Getting fit requires staying realistic. Results happen slowly and by repeating healthy habits over time. Staying realistic is what will keep you going without frustration. You develop a patient side and appreciate what you're doing. You realize regardless of the time it takes, your efforts are making a positive difference. A realistic mindset will take you beyond reaching your fitness goals and into a healthy lifestyle. 

Consistency - this is huge! Starting your fitness program is great but consistency is what keeps it going full-time. You understand the importance of your efforts and don't want to let yourself down. Consistency is what develops those healthy habits that are so important to getting fit and healthy. 

Discipline - can't say enough about this! Do you find yourself lacking motivation and giving up sometimes? This is normal and when you need to turn to discipline to carry you through. Getting fit and even life doesn't promise an easy road. Being a disciplined person helps you get in that early morning workout, resist unhealthy foods, and stay true to the promise you made to yourself. You will need to become a disciplined person if you want to get fit. True story!

Balance - are you over busy and stressed out? This will require an assessment of your life to bring in some balance. Not having time for your health can no longer be the acceptable norm. This is all a matter of better time management and priorities. Getting fit requires a healthy, balanced life. Time to re-arrange your priorities and add in some fun while you're at it!

Self-acceptance - so important! So many of us struggle with lack of self-acceptance. When you can't find anything good to think or say about yourself, body, and life, this is a problem. Getting fit requires you to love yourself right where you are while working towards the body and life you want. It requires being happy while you're getting healthy. You are awesome and can achieve your goals. Believe it!

The Bottom Line

While eating right, exercise, drinking plenty of water, and rest are essential to getting fit, the above strategies are required first and foremost. What you think, and feel ultimately determines if you will eat right, exercise, and be a healthy person.
