- Didn’t eat it? Get rid of it.
It may seem like a waste, but if you have any chocolate left over after Easter throw it away or give it away. One thing you don’t want to do is leave it lying around and tempting you when you are trying to get your fitness goals back on track.
- Stay off the scales.
Here at CardioTech, we’re not big believers on weighing yourself too much. It can give a false sense of what is truly going on with your body. Especially if you are dropping the fat but replacing it with muscle. Weighing yourself can lead to disappointment and can be a huge buzz kill in your motivation to reach your goals. Instead, focus on your healthy eating and exercise. You won’t need a number to tell you how good you feel, you will know in yourself with improved sleep, more energy & vitality everyday.
- Don’t skip meals.
If you have overindulged at Easter, there may be a temptation to get back on track quickly by sacrificing a meal here or there. Skipping meals during the day usually leads to cravings in the evening and overeating, therefore it is much better to get into a good routine with regular healthy meals because the cravings in the evenings are rarely for carrots or peppermint tea.
- Dear diary.
One of the most effective ways of keeping yourself accountable with your fitness goals is having them visible in your everyday life. Whether it’s pinned up on your bathroom mirror or keeping a food and fitness diary, writing down your progress helps keep you mindful of not only how far you’ve come but a solid reminder of where you want to be.
