This will be a brief post; I want to highlight strategies I use for myself and my clients to stay on track all year long (but especially important in the summer)!
What do you want to accomplish?
So let’s set some SMART goals. Do you want to run a marathon? Which one? How are you going to train? What are you going to do each day from now until then to prepare? How are you going to record your progress along the way?
Do you want to lose weight? How much? Why? Have you been at a certain weight before where you felt proud, strong and confident? What will your daily diet look like to get you there? How will you record the progress? When do you expect to have lost 5 pounds? 10? 50?
So, make the goals very specific, measurable, attainable, relevant and time-based.
Now let’s make a calendar!
It seems silly and juvenile, but I promise, it works! It’s an accountability tracker. If you’re not working with me or another personal trainer to hold you accountable to your goals and the timeline you have set for yourself, it will be tougher than expected. You absolutely CAN make a lifestyle change without the help from a personal trainer, but to make sure you’re doing everything correctly, it would certainly help!
Feel free to steal this calendar template, print it out and fill it in with your diet/workout plan for the day! Fill out the entire month at one time, and stick to it the best you can!
