Hello my Friends,
I hope y’all had a good week. Mine was great but I did lack some precious sleeping hours this week due to my hip pain, which decided to show its ugly head again. Funny as the more I move throughout the day, the less discomfort I feel, which proves that exercise is medicine! I choose to find ways to work around my own aches and pains to stay fit. Because staying fit is a lifestyle I choose to follow.
Being fit is all about the lifestyle, and not the quick fix, so let’s take a glimpse at the habits that fit people have. These following five habits are held by successfully fit people…let’s see if you could apply some to your own life.
1. They See Each Day with Perspective
Fail to meet your fitness goals today? Move on. Tomorrow is another day to make smarter decisions. When you wake up, rededicate yourself to your fitness goals without beating yourself about whatever mistakes you made in the past. After all, you cannot change what you did yesterday. All you can control is right now. So get to it!
2. They Find Ways around their Excuses
If you have ever wondered why you cannot quite get fit, it may be your proclivity for caving to pressure. And that pressure may be self-induced. Fit people do not give into excuses for why they should not exercise. Quite the contrary. They are continually finding reasons why they should hit the gym and find pockets of time to do it—even if the trip to the gym is shorter than usual.
3. They Eat and Sleep Well
Study after study has shown the benefit of eating whole, unprocessed foods. It provides energy and strength, helps you feel full throughout the day, and makes your time in the gym as fruitful as possible. Getting good sleep is equally as important, as it keeps all your bodily systems in rhythm. Put these two fit activities together and you’re well on your way to optimal fitness.
4. They Track Progress
For some, keeping tabs on health progress is about as exciting as watching paint dry. Once you get into the routine, however, you will become a believer in the power of tracking your progress. Tracking serves to both reward and motivate you, as you see that the countless hours in the gym and smart food choices lead to a healthier weight and greater strength—a.k.a. better overall fitness and health.
5. They Lean on a Fitness Professional
The final thing fit people do is rely on someone with lots of knowledge in the realm of fitness. This is why our clients have such a high success rate in achieving their goals – because we make sure that they stick with it!
