Top 3 Transformation Tips For 2019
Now that the festive season is over & everyone’s motivation to get fitter stronger & healthier this year, is at an all-time high, I’d like to share with you my 3 top tips to help you along your transformation journey.
1. Set A Goal: Setting yourself a goal will help give you a focus & a sense of direction on your fitness journey. Your goal determines what course of action you take with your exercise, nutrition & lifestyle. Your goal should be specific to you. If your goal is to lose weight, great! How much weight? 1/2 a stone? 1 stone? 3 stone? Be specific. Once you have established what it is you want to achieve, write it down somewhere, doing so makes your goal real & not just another thought.
2. Set an End Date: Everything that is important in life has an end date. For example, if you are going on holiday, you need to pay your money upfront by a set date. Or if you have bills to pay, you need to make sure you have paid them by a certain day. If you’re serious about getting results, you must treat your fitness goals in the same way. If you wish to lose weight before going on holiday, set that as your end date, then count back the weeks until you go & give yourself enough time to achieve your goal to avoid disappointment.
3. Monitor Progress: Many people fail to reach their fitness goals because they simple don’t monitor their progress. Monitoring your results over time will allow you to see if what you’re doing is working or not & can also help boost motivation levels. Progress can be easily measured by regularly recording a few basic measurements; scale weight, body fat percentage, body girth measurements (hips, waist, legs etc), progress photos, clothing size etc. Whatever your goal, be sure to monitor it & be patient on the results.
