How to overcome health and fitness road blocks in your life!
To become healthy and fit, you must make a commitment to healthy habits, including both workouts and nutrition. This is easier said than done for some people. Here are some of the most common roadblocks I see my clients struggle with, and how you can overcome them.
Roadblock: I don’t have any time
Solution: Plan and prepare
When you are a busy women it is so easy to put your health and fitness on the back burner. With work, family, chores, sometimes you just can’t seem to fit it all in. That’s why it is so important to schedule and plan your workouts and meals ahead of time to stay on track. If you take the time to plan in a 20 minute workout, you are more likely to do that workout, same with if you take some time to prep a few meals.
Roadblock: Getting up early for a workout!
Solution: Just do it, make it a routine.
You are an adult, and even if you don’t like to get up early. You can, and you should if you don’t find time to get your workouts in during the day. Make a morning routine, and your body and mind grow accustomed to your health and fitness morning routine. You will be amazed how easy it becomes and how great you feel.
Roadblock: You workouts are not “working”
Solution: Revise your plan
If you are not seeing any movement in the scale or progress pictures, you might need to step back and look at your plan. First, make sure your nutrition is on point, then look at your workouts. Maybe you need to increase your cardio, use heavier weights, or make sure to actually get in all your workouts during the week. Health and fitness is a slow progress, so don’t rush it. Make sure you are actually following though with your plan, and just stick with it!
Roadblock: Not sure how to start
Solution: Make a plan, stick with it!
If you are not sure how to start, you just need to take 1 step. Sit down and write out a workout and meal plan, focusing on strength training with some cardio, and healthy whole foods.
