Glitz and Glam By Tiff

Staying fit is not only beneficial for your mental well being but also your physical health. It’s important that you are staying active on a regular basis. If you’ve done the same sport or activity for a long period of time, then getting active can be boring. Are you someone who is at the start of your fitness journey and need some extra motivation? Have you been exercising but starting and stop out of boredom? No matter the reason or where you are at in your fit journey, I hope that these four tips will help to keep you motivated to stay active and do what’s best for yourself.

Check out the 4 tips below…

TAKE A BEFORE AND AFTER PHOTOS

Instead of using the scales as a way to track progress, try taking a photo of yourself before working out and a couple of weeks after. By taking a photo you can easily compare both photos side by side and see the difference that each work out is making for your body personally. If you are feel like bringing others on your journey, you can always share it with your friends for extra motivation. At any stage of your fitness journey, photos are beneficial. Depending on your goals a photo could show muscle growth, or if you are losing weight. It’s important to not take photos every couple of days. Instead, try and wait a few weeks to give your body a chance to adapt to the change. You’ll have abs in no time.

KEEP A TRACK OF YOUR PROGRESSION

Depending on the type of exercise you are doing, there are so many apps you can use to track your progress. If you enjoy running, try using apps like Strava or Runkeeper. If you are going to the gym try myfitnesspal or Sworkit . Check out this article here for more fitness apps to check out and try. By tracking your progress you can see when you have beat your personal best and see all the progress that you have made. Remember to be patient; progress doesn’t happen instantly but with dedication and perseverance it will!! When you beat your records remember to celebrate and keep going!! If you have friend that want to join in on your journey, add them on to the apps that you use and keep track of your progress together. Make it fun and celebrate each other’s progress along the way. Keep each other motivated.

PURCHASE NEW WORKOUT CLOTHES

A lot of the time when you look good… you feel good!!! Why not treat yourself to a new outfit that you can wear to the gym, or a new pair of sneakers? Check out some options here . You’ll be excited to show off your new looks as you progress on your journey.

TRY SOMETHING NEW

If you’ve played the same sport for years, or you’ve been running the same route for months, it can get repetitive and boring. When a workout or routine becomes boring… you will be less likely to want to go out and keep doing it. If this is something that is happening to you, then try something different. See if your friends or family members want to get involved. Get outside of your normal box and challenge yourself to try a new sport or routine and then come back to what you used to do in the future. Mix it up where you fit in certain workouts or activities on different days of the week. This will help to keep you motivated and on track to reach all of your fitness goals.

Stay happy and healthy!!!!
