When you decided to make new years resolutions and big changes to your diet and lifestyle in December it sounded great and you started the year with all good intentions, but that same motivation is probably starting to fade, right?
This is natural and there should be no shame in admitting your motivation has started to dip, you are not alone. After 4 consistent weeks of changing your routine, you are more than likely missing being free to eat what you like, and happy to stay home rather than get out to exercise, but this is where you will really start to reap the benefits if you stay consistent.
Maybe you need to check in with your overall goals, and make lots of little, short term goals to make it seem more achievable. If you wanted to lose 10kg before your holiday in June, then why not break it down to weekly or fortnightly goals instead? If you achieve a 1kg loss each week you will no doubt, be buzzing when you see that achieved week in and week out. With this little buzz, you will be more motivated to stay on track with making healthier food choices and getting off the sofa at 5pm and to the gym, leading to sticking to and achieving your new year’s resolution.
Rather than dwelling on what you cannot eat or do when you are trying to achieve your goals, instead perhaps reframe your thinking, celebrate things you can have and things you can now do, these may be small such as seeing the sunset over the hills each evening on your evening walk, or trying new foods that you never thought of trying before.
Ultimately, if you don’t enjoy the changes you are putting in place, you are unlikely to stick to them. You are in it for the long hall, so make the process enjoyable.
