Getting off track with your weight loss journey is to be expected. The most important thing is that you don’t keep moving backwards. Instead, accept that nobody is flawless and start taking positive steps towards your fitness goals. Check out these ways you can get back on the path to a healthier you.
Get back on track right away
If you make a bad food choice for breakfast it does not mean the whole day has to be that way. If you miss going to the gym on Monday it does not mean you should skip it all week. Instead of waiting for the next day, week, or month to get back on track, start right now.
Reset your bad cravings, re-hydrate your body, flood your body with lots of nutrients, and give your digestive system a break with a juice cleanse. Be sure to do research about how to do a juice cleanse before you start as there is some preparation needed.
Throw out the junk food
Don’t give yourself the opportunity to grab something bad. Go through your refrigerator and pantry and get rid of any unhealthy food. Buy healthier snack options like fruit, veggies, hummus, or Greek yogurt. Now when you are hungry there will be nothing but healthy choices in your reach.
Try a new fitness program
Trying different fitness classes is a great way to keep you from getting bored. Trying something new and fresh is a great way to get back on track. Try different kinds of classes such as MixxedFit, pole dance fitness, or R.I.P.P.E.D.
Start tracking your calories
Start writing down what you eat to help determine if you are meeting your nutritional needs. Tracking calories is a great way to hold yourself accountable for what you eat. Find an app on your phone such as myfitnesspal to make it convenient.
Get ready to eat like cave men did by throwing out all of your processed foods, grains, and dairy. Replace them with plenty of veggies, fruits, grass-fed meats, nuts, and healthy oils. It is believed by some that this diet will promote weight loss, increase your energy level, and get you feeling back to your true self.
