A bit part of success with your program is learning to deal with obstacles and not getting discouraged enough to give up. My inspiration for this article is the aftermath of holiday eating. For myself and from what I have heard from my clients, the feasting is unavoidable unless you have the willpower of steel.
Here are Three Tips to Overcome Obstacles
1. Think about what two weeks is in relation to life.
Every year we eat a lot of junk food during the holidays. Did we gain 50 pounds? Not likely! A couple of weeks is nothing compared to a fitness lifestyle for life. So keep working out and get back in to healthy eating habits and put the those horrible weeks out of your head.
2. Change your routine or meal plan.
Gaining a couple of pounds or losing muscle mass from missed workouts can be so discouraging considering how long it takes to get it in the first place. A new routine or meal peal plan will not only be motivating but your body will love the change.
3. Learn from your mistakes.
If you honestly felt disgusting and terrible from eating all of those cookies or chocolates, remember it and deal with the situation differently next time. Instead of eating all of the unhealthy gifts, learn to give them away. It’s hard to part with chocolate but if it truly made you feel like you lost months of hard work, just get rid of it.
Overcoming obstacles is a huge factor in achieving success. Once you get the hang of learning to putting mistakes in the past, you are unstoppable!
