Happy first Fitness Friday of 2018!
If you’re new to a Bee Life Fitness Friday, welcome! I like to share these FF posts every month to check-in, provide motivation or tips to any of you working towards goals, share my struggles and triumphs, and new ways I’m achieving my goals. One of my goals for 2018 is to maintain all of the awesome progress I finally made this past year!
It can often be overwhelming to have goals that seem impossible – but let me tell you, nothing is impossible. The key in achieving your goals is to have a plan, but also know you can be flexible with your plan. Are you going to follow a running training program? Going to join a cycle studio for classes? Or other fitness classes? Have an exercise plan, make the commitment, and have a goal of number of days you plan to go and plan your week around those classes, runs, or workout sessions.
The next step in making sure your plan is set-up for success is having a nutritional game plan. And this does not mean an extreme diet or something that isn’t achievable with your lifestyle. Meal prep, switching out soda for water, adding in more veggies to your diet, eating a salad twice a week – taking smaller steps to work towards progress is the best way to start. Trying to completely change the way you eat on day one will only be harder, everything in moderation!
It’s matching these two pieces – exercise and nutrition and continuing to refine, and push yourself that will truly allow you to reach your fitness goals and become the best version of yourself!
