If you’re participating in Get Slim for Summer with us, you probably know that transforming your life physically comes with a challenge or two. Here are some tips to make it easier!
Planning ahead is the best way to make transforming your life easier. Life has a way of interfering with healthy living, and the best way to handle that is preparing in advance so your healthy decisions have already been made when temptations arise. Here’s a guide to planning your week in advance so you’re ready to hit the ground running!
Lean on your support system.
Your support system is your greatest asset when you’re making healthy lifestyle changes. Let your loved ones know what you’ll be doing while you’re on the Better Body System and ask them for their support and encouragement. Having them in your corner will help you stay motivated to reach your goals.
If someone else in your life is also working toward a physical transformation, make it a team effort! Having someone going through the journey with you can be a huge help. As you both work toward a healthier lifestyle, offer your support and encourage them along the way. They’ll do the same, and you’ll both find it easier to stay on track!
Focus on your why.
If you find yourself struggling to maintain your healthy choices, focus on why you want to transform your life. Continually remind yourself of your ultimate goal and keep it in the forefront of your mind. It may help to write down your why and keep it somewhere that you can see it when you’re having a hard time. Having the reminder of what you’re working toward will help you stay on track!
Take care of yourself emotionally.
As you improve your physical health, don’t forget to take care of your emotional health! Set realistic goals for yourself and celebrate each step you take along the way. Rather than trying to be perfect and becoming frustrated when you slip up, focus on doing as well as you can and remember that every healthy choice takes you one step closer to your goal.
Above all else, don’t make the way you feel about yourself conditional upon your weight. Love yourself where you’re at!
