We all have dreams of what we want to achieve – let’s make them a reality.
You can get one step closer to achieving your dream by making a weekly/ daily commitment to yourself. This can be applied in all walks of life, not only health and fitness – be it your career, studies, wealth or health. To be honest they all tie into each other some way or another.
My focus at the moment is getting beach ready. I have 14 days until I’ll be by the pool in France, Singapore and Thailand and I really can’t wait. I just want to push myself the extra mile before I get there so I can be proud of the changes in my body and take some AMAZING pictures. I also want to reduce the guilt I feel when I’m pigging out on all the lush exotic foods.
I’m sure I speak for many people when I say, when I booked the holiday 2-3 months ago the initial excitement wore off and you fall back into normal life and routine. There’s no initial burst of motivation as you simply think – ‘I’ve got ages’ and ‘I’ll deal with that closer to the time’, but how many of us think when the time comes ‘why didn’t I start earlier’ or ‘I wish I did this’. Anyway not saying I’m fantastic as here I am with 22 days to go but better late than never.
My 10 point commitment this week:
- Go to the gym 5 times
- Do something active each day
- 4 litres of water per day
- 3 meat free days
- Burn at least 1600 calories in cardio alone
- No naughty food (natural sugars only)
- Stretch for 15 minutes at the end of each fitness session
- Meal prep
- Add three new exercises to my workout routines for each body area
- 3 lower body work out sessions
These may seem obvious and they are but with life getting in the way we forget or make excuses. It’s hard to stick to the ideal so my commitment to myself is to stick to my ideal for the next 7 days. This is my genuine plan but life can get in the way and things are missed. If this plan is stuck to for a significant amount of time you will see the positive changes and difference you want.
Today is your day
To start fresh
To eat right
To train hard
To live healthy
To be proud
