Weekend Binging: All week you exercise and eat the right foods, but come the weekend you want to “let your hair down.” Weekends are wonderful for relaxing, but be mindful of indulging in junk food as a way to unwind. You want to be full of motivation and feeling ready for a new week come Monday, not nursing a hangover from those empty calorie beverages.
Analysis Paralysis: With so many exercise regimes available, deciding which one will give the best results can be a bit overwhelming. There’s CrossFit, Zumba, Spinning, boxercise, yoga, running, weights, circuit training, DVD’s, and many more. The best workout is the one you’ll do consistently and meets your personal goals and enjoyment. Find what works for YOU.
Poor Planning: Healthy living requires some organization and planning. If you’re hoping to squeeze in a workout and have no idea where your meals will be, you’re setting yourself up for failure. Plan by scheduling workouts and food shopping in advance for the coming week. Preparation and managing time efficiently is key. Don’t give up. Practice makes perfect.
Social Pressure: Although we can’t blame others for our own choices, we do need to recognize when they influence our choices. Be prepared for situations where you’ve caved to peer pressure in the past and don’t be afraid to say no. This can be a great time to have a friend who’s making the same strides as you to make positive change in their life. Friends can be a great source of support and encouragement.
Do you feel any of these are getting in the way of your fitness and health goals? What other obstacles might be the reason?
