1. Plan Ahead
Why do people look at chiseled bodies with such respect? Maybe because we all know first hand how difficult it is to keep a fit figure in this society of convenience and indulgence. It’s incredibly difficult to not overeat when you are presented with menus full of delicious, high-calorie food. So you are going to have to implement some serious discipline friends. Plan ahead. Decide how many calories you are going to take in. Go online before going out with friends and find out what your menu options are and decide what you will order before you get into the restaurant. That way your friends (or waiter for that matter) don’t ruin your commitment to stay healthy and fit.
Integrity means to say what you mean and mean what you say! In this case, it means if you say you are going to work out today, then you do it; Even if it means you have to wake up at 5am to run because you have to be at the office by 8am. Integrity means ordering a salad that contains loads of nutrients and lean proteins instead of choosing the waiter’s suggestion with many more calories than your day’s allotment. If you can’t follow through with your commitment with unbending integrity, then you won’t get the body you are working toward…period!
3. Accountability and Support
Encourage friends and family to get on board with your exercise and diet success. When you have an entire group of people that want to see you succeed and know that you are dieting and exercising, then you are more likely to stick to your plan. So be your own cheerleader and rally up your support system to help you accomplish your goal! You will also be helping them get fit and healthy.
