It’s never too late to start brushing up on your diet and training to feel more comfortable when the nice weather appears.
Motivate yourself for some killer workouts and delicious healthy meals leading up to Summer with these five tips.
#1 Set a new goal
New Year isn’t the only time you can set yourself a new resolution, and when you’re low on motivation, it’s the perfect time to set yourself a new one.
Aim small, something you can achieve in 2 to 4 weeks;
✓ Progress on your splits
✓ 3-pull ups in a row
✓ Running for 20 minutes without stopping
✓ A new squat PB
Just choose something that will push you, but won’t take you too long to achieve – that way you won’t get bored of it!
#2 Sort out your kitchen
The food that’s in it, it is! Give your kitchen a mini-overhaul and get some lean meats, fresh fruits and fresh veggies in.
When you’re hungry you go for something quick and easy, so it’s no wonder you end up snacking on crisps and chocolate if that’s what you’ve got in your cupboards.
✓ Go get yourself some healthy foods in and get ready to spring clean your diet.
#3 Reward yourself
It’s good to treat yourself every once in a while, so use it to keep you motivated. Put at least £1 in a jar every time you workout and treat yourself to something new when you reach your goal.
✓ Not only will this keep you motivated to work out regularly, it’ll keep you motivated to keep reaching for your goal.
#4 Get ready
Even when you don’t feel like working out, just get into your gym kit.
By the time you’re ready to go you either feel ready to go or you think “well I might as well do it now” as you’re already changed!
✓ Whether you prefer early workouts or evening workouts, this trick works every time – so get ready, and go!
#5 Get pumped
When all else fails, there’s always caffeine. Whether you’re a coffee person or a pre-workout person, there’s always something to get us going.
Choose and get ready to workout!
