Staying committed to personal fitness/health in 2018

2018 is the year of accountability.

I’m a huge believer in personal growth/development and one of my biggest goals this year is to be in the best mental and physical shape of my life. I’ve always been active in the gym but I’ve felt like my body and weight has become complacent and I’m looking to push myself to new limits. An old friend of mine reached out to me recently after having twins and she told me she felt like she lost complete control of herself and she’s ready to turn it around and get her body back. This was the perfect opportunity for us both to blog our journey and keep us on track with our goals!

Height: 5’5″

CW: 134 lbs

GW: 122 lbs

I plan on actively documenting our progress and sharing delicious and healthy recipes as well as fun and effective workouts.

Here are some of our tips and tricks for staying on track:

1. Get (and use) a daily planner

I seriously don’t get how anyone can be productive without using a planner daily. I love writing my tasks down first thing in the morning and highlighting them when complete. I have OCD and can’t stand looking at a task that hasn’t been highlighted so it mentally keeps me in check to make sure I complete everything I need to do.

2. Setting micro / macro goals

Macro goal – Big goal

Micro goal – Deconstruct your “big goal” into small, tiny goals.

Most of the time, a big goal seems overwhelming and people are quick to give up when they aren’t getting results fast enough.

Micro goals are usually habits that eventually turn into a routine- and if you don’t know it takes 21 days to form a habit.

3. Toss the junk food from your cabinet and fridge

This sounds like the most obvious, but seriously it’s the most helpful. Throw everything the f##k out. You will eat out of boredom, and it’s usually the cookies.

4. Get a workout buddy

Having a gym buddy is the best way to stay on track. You can keep each other accountable and it challenges you to push through the days that suck. Cilia is my workout partner and I’m really lucky to have such a supportive friend to go through this fitness journey with!

5. Track results

It’s important to track your progress to make sure you are reaching your weekly/biweekly goals. Our gym has a scale that measures your muscle mass and BMI so we plan on checking in twice a month.

WISH ME LUCK and make sure to check in frequently. I carefully put together workouts that I think you’ll enjoy. I plan on giving this 100% and I’m excited to have you a part of my journey.

  • “You will never exceed in your life what your identity is.”
People that hold off on their happiness until they hit that next financial milestone, or until they get that relationship they want or until they buy that new car will never ever be happy because they’ll be bringing their identity, habits and rituals with them to that new destination.
