Did you ever start training and dieting and after a week, 2 weeks or even a year you are just fed up, bored or you just don’t have time for it anymore? Well, every day I meet people from different walks of life and there is always an episode in their life which causes them to go off track. For me personally I love to train and workout but even so, I still struggle to find the time at the moment especially as I am very limited in time because of my busy schedule and personal life. Why am I mentioning this?
Stay on track
In my opinion this is the main problem which hinders a lot of us and keeps us from becoming fit and healthy. I am here to stay! This is what I tell myself every time I find myself in frustrating situations probably as a result of my lack of training. My take on this: I am not going to mention the same cheesy quotes now such as motivation, discipline etc etc as by now everyone knows this, but it seems that not everyone is able to work through challenging situations and still manage to stay on track. In life it is impossible to keep the same enthusiasm, rhythm and momentum with the same consistency throughout.
This is why one has to plan, adapt and do his or her best with respect to time management as well as be considerate and always keep their priorities in mind. In my opinion health and fitness should be at the top of everyone’s priorities. This is because I believe that for as long as you can, everyone should take good care of himself as without good health it is impossible to enjoy other aspects of life. So do not worry if you do not have the time to train as you used to have before. Do not worry if the enthusiasm is not as great as it used to be! This is absolutely normal!
The important thing is that you always try and make the best out of every situation. So no matter what life throws at you, try and stick to eating strong and healthy food with moderate portions, monitor your social life and keep alcohol and all other unhealthy stuff away. Make a realistic and maintainable training plan and merge it with something you like to do. For example in my case I like to be in the countryside so I introduced outdoor cycling in my training plan. Life changes and so will your training and nutrition plans! The important thing is that you keep moving forward and closer towards your goals!
