Fitness Tip - Celebrate Small Wins
Posted: September 18, 2018
Celebrate small WINS!
Motivation can be affected when we become consumed with what we haven’t accomplished in a fitness program, and don’t acknowledge the amazing changes that we have already adopted – small changes to eating habits, an extra walk around the block at lunch, etc. The motivation to stick with a fitness routine and healthy lifestyle largely comes from making and celebrating those smaller changes every step of the way.
If you’re having a bad day, week or even month of exercise and diet, remember that you can always start over again at any point. It’s better to finish strong after a slow start than to not try at all! And if you’re doing well and feeling great, pat yourself on the back then strive for more.
Choose a way to celebrate that doesn’t involve food. Buy a new workout outfit or pair of running shoes. Go to a spa for the day or get a pedicure. Or share your success with friends.
Contrary to what most of the fad programs out there say, fitness should be less about the end result and more about adopting a healthy lifestyle, and celebrating the small wins as you go.
