Have you struggled to lose the extra kilos?
The thought of another diet makes you miserable.
You feel like you have tried everything and you are still not where you want to be?
Today, I want to share with you my 3 TOP TIPS to make losing weight easier.
First up, try breaking your journey into small achievable chunks. I like to work in 4 week blocks.
Set yourself some simple goals just for the next 4 weeks.
At the moment I’m getting back into my running and strength training.
My goals for the next 4 weeks are: 2 x Runs a week, 3 x Weight Routine (30-40 minute workouts, mainly straight sets to get back into it).
Enter my food into myfitnesspal so I can see what I am honestly eating over the course of a week.
If I want to aim for more, great, but that’s my goal for the next 4 weeks.
Not overdoing it, just need to get back into a really good routine.
Don’t go hardcore!
One of the things that can really shatter your confidence and belief in yourself is going too strict straight up.
If you’re someone who has struggled with consistency on your weight loss plans or you tend to binge eat, jumping into a rigid routine is a recipe for disaster.
Instead have a look at what you’re doing now and just try and be a bit better each week.
It might mean adding in just two exercise sessions and improving one meal.
The next week you can add on that.
You will be amazed at how quickly the good habits add up and before you know it, you’ve overhauled your lifestyle, without feeling restricted.
Focus on what you can do!
The amount of times I hear things like,
“I don’t have time”
“I don’t like that”.
My response…. What can you do?
When you focus on WHAT YOU CAN DO you’ll be amazed at what you an achieve.
If you’re struggling with time, have an honest look at your week and work out what you can realistically fit in.
Sore knees? Can’t run? Don’t…. Put in exercise that you can do.
When you focus on finding ways to make it work instead of focusing on all the reasons it’s too hard you’ll start to make some lasting changes.
Ultimately, most of making positive changes and enjoying the journey comes down to your mindset.
If you REALLY want to change and it’s important to you, you’ll make it happen.
If you can’t be bothered, tell yourself it’s too hard. Nothing will change.
