It is almost a month into 2014 and several individuals have started their pledge to lose weight as their new year’s resolution. In a couple of weeks, if not already, gyms will be flooded with people who want to get in shape. Some may be trying a new fitness routine and they may have abandoned the old ones which they’ve been trying because they are bored. Others may even look for the help of a fitness trainer to help them lose those unwanted pounds. All these may work for a couple of days or weeks. Most of the time, these individuals end up going back to their old habits and forgot about their weight loss pledge.
To avoid ending up like this, you have to think that you are an athlete instead of merely setting a goal of losing 10 pounds or more in a month. Doing so will give your need to exercise a purpose. The best way to do this is to set a goal and work your way towards achieving that goal. Provided below are a few things to help you out.
Try to get involve in a race or fun run. It would be best if you can get a hold of one every month. If you are unable to find one every month, take the opportunity if do find one which is available. Another alternative would be to join a bike race. This is very good in keeping you motivated to work out. By joining a race like this, you will not only lose weight during your preparation period but also enjoy the actual event.
You can also surround yourself with individuals who are very active especially in terms of doing regular exercises in order to stay fit and healthy. This will be a very good motivation. You can join clubs who love to run, walk, bike or those who love to play basketball or volleyball.
These are just a few tips which will keep you on track. With goals set, you will not be making any excuse to simply drop off your fitness and exercise routine.
