Summer is almost here and I am beyond excited! We are getting ready to go on vacation and I am also in competition prep. This means I need to stay accountable and not go crazy while on vacation this upcoming week. I am planning on doing this by posting my food on social media and using my wonderful followers as a support system!
No matter what your goal is, it’s important to have a support system to help keep you accountable. This can be your close family, friends, or even your social media followers. This helps drive us to make better choices because we do not want to let others down! No matter what your goal is, make sure you are having fun. You should always enjoy the journey even if it’s something you hate. For example if you hate cardio but love TV, download netflix on your phone and watch a show during your cardio. This helps the time go by quickly and you might even end up looking forward to working out!
It’s also important to remember that your goal is to make progress not achieve perfection. It seems like as women we strive to be perfect in everything we do. We are always being shown perfect bodies and many of us compare our looks to these photoshopped images. This can be very discouraging and will lead to incredibly destructive habits. Remember that every step counts! My favorite saying is “If you have a flat tire, you wouldn’t slash the others. You’d fix the flat and move on.” Most mistakes and slip ups are not that big of a deal! Did anyone die because you had a cupcake? Probably not! Pick yourself up and keep moving, one mistake is not a reason to throw away your entire day.
Stay focused on your goal and make small consistent incremental steps each day to achieve that goal. Most importantly keep your eye on the prize, one day you will wake up and realize you reached your goal!
