How to Recommit to Your Goals Mid-Year

It’s been quite a few months since we made New Year’s resolutions and with the coronavirus forcing us to social distance, staying on top of our fitness and nutrition goals has been challenging. But, there are ways to get back on track, before summer comes around. Here are four ways to recommit to your goals.

Reassess and Adjust

Whether you decided to run a 5K, lose weight, or lead a more active lifestyle at the beginning of the year, it’s time to assess how you’ve been doing. Once you’ve done this, you need to accept where you’re at and work from there.

Create a Reward System

The reward will depend on what you like, perhaps it’s a new outfit or a manicure, and make sure you have someone to hold you accountable. Mix up your playlist and try new routes to help you get motivated.

Stick to a Routine

It’s easy to get stuck sitting on the couch scrolling through your social media feed for hours and then getting depressed, but treat your workouts like a job and stick to a schedule. For many people working out first thing in the morning is the best way to make sure it gets done.

Plan Smaller Goals

Having big goals is great, but usually, you lose your focus after three to four months. Think of small goals to do along the way to your end goal. This can include running three times a week to prepare for your marathon or swimming four times a week to prepare for a triathlon.

Iโ€™ve personally gone through a combination of all of the above. Iโ€™m sure you have too.โฃโฃ โฃโฃ But the next time it strikes you that maybe youโ€™re not where you want to be, own every part of it, because it comes down to making the decision to do things differently.โฃโฃ โฃโฃ Getting support and accountability in the process is one of the most powerful game changers. That is exactly what I do with my clients.โฃโฃ โฃโฃ If youโ€™re ready to make a different decision and you know having serious accountability would help you stick with it, ๐˜ด๐˜ฆ๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ ๐˜ข ๐˜ฑ๐˜ฆ๐˜ณ๐˜ด๐˜ฐ๐˜ฏ๐˜ข๐˜ญ ๐˜ฎ๐˜ฆ๐˜ด๐˜ด๐˜ข๐˜จ๐˜ฆ.
