It is nearly a month and a half into the New Year already. For many people, this is the make or break time for sticking to that New Year’s resolution. One of the most popular resolutions is to lose weight or start a workout regimen. Many times people will be looking to see the results of their efforts and become disappointed when they don’t see them initially. Here are two tips for staying motivated and plowing through those first few months.
Find yourself a workout partner – It is much easier to stay motivated and stick to your workout routine if you have at least one other person to keep you accountable. We all know how easy it is to make excuses for not getting to the gym. Having someone else to spur you on is a good way to keep each other motivated.
Set realistic goals – You most likely will not likely lose those 30 pounds you want to shed, in two weeks. Breaking up your main goal into little goals, can be a great way to keep you motivated and produce successful results in the future. Always maintaining some type of progress can play a key factor in staying motivated for the long haul.
