See Your Results Quicker with One Simple Step
Whether you’re a fitness junkie or just beginning your fitness journey, staying committed to your fitness goals can be a daily struggle. Life happens whether you’re ready or not and this can sometimes get in the way of pledging to a regular fitness plan. You start to think to yourself, “Just one day of relaxing won’t hurt me, resting is good right?” and that’s when it begins. The snowball starts to roll and continues to grow. One day of rest turns in to a whole week, a whole month, then you promise yourself you’ll start back up again once you have more time. Although rest is in fact beneficial to one’s health, sometimes extended periods of rest cause you to lose the progress you have already made.
In order to be successful throughout your fitness journey, there are three main things you should consider. Imagine a three-legged stool where each leg represents Daily Exercise, a Healthy Diet, and your Fitness Mindset. If one leg is compromised, the stool is unbalanced and falls. All three legs are necessary to hold the stool upright, and all are equally important. One way to strengthen all three legs is by simply tracking your fitness progress.
Tracking measurements and daily nutrition can allow you to see the small changes you’ve made while keeping you motivated. The best part? It doesn’t need to cost you a penny! Having a fitness tracker or journal won’t take up much of your time and is an innovative way for you to continue climbing our fitness ladder. It can be as easy as downloading an app such as MyFitnessPal to keep track of your calories and diet. If digital isn’t your thing, make your own fitness journal or download free printable PDFs online.
You may not always see your progress in the mirror at first but adding in a way to track your fitness goals can help you trust the process and see results quickly. Don’t give up yet, your making progress every day!
