Know It All: It’s Your Right To Be Fit
Being mentally and physically fit takes work because it’s all about balance. Here’s the twist: what you set out to do mentally will guide you through any trouble you might face physically. Whether you work out regularly or are just getting started, remember that it’s your right to be fit. Here are a few ideas to help you stay on track.
When you have a goal in mind without a plan of action, there’s no way to track the progress. Keep your eyes on a (realistic) prize, and set milestones so you have a better idea of what’s working and what isn’t.
Never Reward, Never Punish
There are times when you may feel as though you’ve hit a point of no return. I always say, never reward exercising with eating and never punish eating with exercise. You need to keep these two things separate in your mind, or you will only fuel your food noise and your exercise noise.
If you aren’t organized, you’re going to waste time, period. Managing your time will help you stay on track with your mental and physical fitness goals. Keep your workout gear in your car or another convenient spot so you’re ready to go when there’s a gap in your schedule. Treat fitness as its own appointment on your calendar – and don’t skip it. Multitask and fit in a walk while catching up with a girlfriend (whether in-person or on the phone). There are so many ways to make it happen.
