1) Set Achievable targets
Set targets that are personal to you and your current situation. Many people try to run before they can walk, which causes de-motivation. Have a vision and a timeline to break down what you want to achieve.
2) Be focused and stay on track
Despite any barriers you face, such as missing a session, picking up an injury, work finishing late. Your discipline and desire will determine your results, so mindset and belief is important.
3) Monitor progress
You need to make sure you are heading in the right direction. Get a MYZONE heart rate monitor to track your calories and keep a training diary with your workout and weigh ins to give you feedback. If you are making steps towards your goal, then great. If not then re-evaluate your training and make sure it is specific.
4) Work Hard
Nothing worth having comes easy so put the hard work and effort in. The results will come. Early morning sessions before you start the day or late evening sessions after work…they all count!
5) Reward and re-set
Be sure to give yourself credit and reward yourself when you make progress. This will motivate you and you can set greater goals. That way you always have something to aim for and you know you will get recognition when you achieve what you set out to do.
