Perhaps you have been through this type of thing before where by you
have decided to improve your health and fitness and in the beginning
you felt really motivated.
Perhaps you saw an inspirational movie that caused you to take
action, maybe a friend of yours you hadn’t seen for a long time showed
up having lost a heap of weight or having piled on muscle mass or maybe
you are just sick of feeling lethargic and overweight.
Whatever the initial stimulus was, you began exercising and then continued to exercise for a while.
However after sometime your motivation dropped off, you allowed your
work to takeover, you got frustrated at your perceived lack of progress
and gradually bit by bit you quit your healthy lifestyle. If that all
sounds familiar then here are a few easy ways to help regain and
sustain your motivation for a healthier lifestyle:
Try setting an enjoyable goal.
For example,what about planning out a mountain biking/kayaking/hiking
holiday in an exotic tough part of the world such as the Himalayas,The
Alps or The Candadian Rockies. You really do have an exciting
motivating thing to aim for now with this trip. In order to enjoy your
trip to the fullest you really need to be in good physical shape. If
your trip is in 5 months time then you can plan a realistic schedule
with your fitness goals in mind.
