How To Shift Your Mindset And Reach Your Fitness Goals

January is finally over (did that month last forever or what?!), the month we all sign up to the gym and fitness classes, convince ourselves that this is the year we are going to get fit and healthy, no excuses but then February comes around and we are struggling to keep motivated and stick to our fitness goals.

We are all guilty of this, myself included but all you need to do is try to shift your mindset.  Here are the easiest ways I have found to do this:

1. Try not to feel guilty if you do start to slack.  We all need a break from it sometimes and often when we push ourselves too hard we start to slack off and then feel really guilty.  Feeling guilty is not going to help, you need to just look at it as an 'off day' and then start over the next day but don't feel bad about it.

2. Set attainable and realistic goals.  If you are pushing yourself too hard and setting goals you are going to struggle to reach then you are destined to fail.  Start slowly and ease yourself into it, increasing your goals as you go.  They will be easier to reach leaving you feeling better about yourself and more motivated to keep going.

3. Be positive.  Positive thinking always help to reach our goals and fitness goals are no different.  Tell yourself that you can do it and don't get disheartened if you don't see results straight away.  It takes around 12 weeks for you to see a real difference in yourself.

What are your tips for reaching your fitness goals?
