Perfecting your diet and fitness plans is a bit of a balancing act. It can be tricky to start with but once you have it nailed, you can become that lean, mean fighting machine. I have failed at so many plans, whether it be my diet or fitness plans. However, such setbacks have helped me ensure I achieve my successes.
Diet plan failure is good
Life is full of setbacks and unexpected twists and turns. My reaction to these setbacks is what has made the difference. Crying achieved nothing. Anger achieved nothing. Giving up achieved nothing. Bouncing back achieved everything!
Tip one: Nutrition plan positives
Despite gaining weight in a particular week, I focused on the diet positives too. No chocolate, no alcohol or fast food was consumed. My portion sizes needed revisiting however. This then became the focus.
Tip two: Seek dietary advice
If I did not understand where I was going wrong I would asked a friend for advice, did some online search or spoke to a healthcare professional. Probably one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Do not be ashamed asking for or seeking advice.
Tip three: Your fitness goals
I started to remove the emotion out of my failures. If I failed to achieve a personal best, pick up an injury or was beaten in a contest, I accepted it. My goal told me I had plenty of time to turn things around and make the necessary improvements.
Tip four: Multiple fitness plans
Test, test, test. If all fails try and try again. Despite spending time on a particular fitness plan, the results were simply not being achieved. Some fitness plans work for you and others do not. It is all about finding the plan that works best for you. You may have to go through many fitness plans to find the plan that works best for you.
Tip five: Be fitness happy
The hardest one of the lot. It has taken many years of thinking and finding ways to think positively. It was not natural for me to think happy and to be positive about my aims. All I can say with this tip is the penny does finally dropped. Thinking negatively was natural and easy and my results reflected my mood and attitude.
Looking at things differently, applying determination, removing pressure and not being too hard on yourself helped me approach things differently. The results were impressive.
