Get back to your Routine: Tips from Alice Jane
It is important to start planning your routine and goals BEFORE you take a break, a holiday, or get out of routine for a few weeks. Planning ahead already plants a seed in your mind that will help remind you and motivate you to still move towards your goals.
Planning ahead will allow you to set goals and set up a commitment while you are still in a good motivated routine. Sometimes it is best to commit to these goals with the help of chatting to a fitness professional. They can help to motivate and push you back into your routine as soon as holiday season is over.
SET SHORT TERM GOALS
If you are someone who has previously failed attempts at fad diets or “New Year, New You” routines then try to start with small achievable goals to get you back into routine slowly. For example, head to the gym a minimum of 3 times a week, and then progress to 4-5 times a week. Don’t restrict yourself with diets and try to go on a 100% clean eating rampage… but rather start with something small like prepping your lunches for each day during the week and limiting your alcohol to the weekends.
DON’T THROW YOUR PROGRESS OUT THE WINDOW
Small tips like not overeating, exercising each day and picking your treats wisely will make it easier for you to get back into your daily routine.
