1. Find exercise you enjoy
This is important when it comes to staying consistent with your workouts. If you are continually doing exercises you don't enjoy, and they leave you feeling drained physically and emotionally, it's only going to last so long. You are better off finding exercises that make you feel good, and you can stick to long term, even if it's not the most intense. Consistent low intensity exercise will always triumph inconsistent high intensity exercise.
2. Be patient when it comes to reaching your physical goals.
Remember, results take time. Be easy on yourself. Nothing good comes easy. Learn to fall in love with the process and the person you become throughout the journey.
3. Don't give up the foods you love.
I'm a firm believer in never giving up the foods you love. Find a way to make your favourite foods healthier. If pizza is your favourite food, don't give it up. This will leave you feeling deprived. Get creative and use clean ingredients to make your healthy version.
4. Don't compete with anyone
This is your life and your journey. No two people are the same, so you should never compare yourself to others. As long as you wake up every day and try to better than you were yesterday, you are on the right track.
5. Try new things
Step out of your comfort zone. Try new fitness class with a friend and explore different foods. Grocery shopping based on what's in season is easy way to begin experimenting with different foods and exposing yourself to a wide variety of fruits and vegetables. Stepping out of your comfort zone and switching things up will keep things interesting and help you stay motivated and inspired to make this way of living a permanent lifestyle.
