Over the last few weeks, I’ve gotten a few questions about how to have fitness success. About how I make sure I get up and get out every day to get in some kind of workout.
Here are the steps I take to ensure I find my success in fitness.
Schedule the time.
Whether you actually mark your fitness time slot down in your calendar, or you just mentally hold the space, commit yourself to a set time. If you do that, it makes it so much easier to overcome excuses and make it happen.
Set your alarm. And get up with it.
Ugh. The dreaded alarm. But seriously. Figure out what time you need to be up, set that alarm, and don’t shut it off. I confess that I build in a little extra snoozing time, but I’ve gotten good at popping up and starting my day with plenty of time to spare for my run or workout.
Make things as easy as possible.
Every night, I set out all my workout gear, so there’s nothing left to chance. I place my outfit right next to my bed, my sunglasses and fuel on the kitchen counter, and my shoes right outside the door. That way there’s nothing left to chance, and I have no excuses.
The more you you make your fitness part of your routine, the more it becomes ingrained habit. sure, it can be hard to get up get moving, but if you keep doing it, on a regular basis, you’ll find that it just becomes second nature.
Regularly check in with your goals.
It’s easier to stay committed if you make the time to check in with your goals. Goals can change and evolve with time, so be sure you are adapting your fitness plans to stay on track with your end game. If you take the time to make certain you are in line with what you want to accomplish, you will be so much more likely to keep going with your fitness!
