Maximizing Your Accountability for a Healthier Life
One of the biggest differences between those who succeed at reaching their goals and those who don’t is accountability. If you aren’t holding yourself accountable, it’s easy to slip back into old habits and unhealthy patterns.
At Energy Fitness, our team is here to provide the support you need to stay accountable and motivated on your fitness journey. Here are a few tips!
Set measurable goals: If you can’t measure your goals, there is no way to track if you’re reaching them and where your areas of opportunity are. Put a solid game plan into place that includes specific milestones you want to reach and when you want to reach them. Review and adjust this plan often.
Celebrate the wins: One of the best and most important ways to hold yourself accountable to your goals is celebrating your accomplishments. While you’re reviewing your goals and plan, be sure to include a celebration of the achievements you’ve already reached. Giving yourself small rewards along the way can be an effective tool for motivation.
Food journal: The occasional indulgence isn’t going to destroy your health. However, regular intake of empty calories that don’t fuel your body add up quickly and, over time, can undo all of the hard work you’ve put into your nutrition and health. Writing down what you’ve eaten each day in a food log can be eye-opening. The simple act of taking time to write it down may help you pause the next time you’re about to go for that unhealthy snack.
Personal training sessions: When you schedule an appointment with a trainer, you’re more likely to show up than if you set a vague plan to get to the gym. Our training team wants to help you reach and crush your fitness and health goals. We know there is no one-size-fits-all map for health and that different factors motivate different people. That’s why we build custom health and nutrition plans for your lifestyle, background and skill level.
Good vibes only: It has been said that you begin to mimic the behavior of the five people you spend the most time around. While it may sound cliché, surrounding yourself with positivity leads to even more positivity which, in turn, can boost your confidence and motivation. In the spirit of community, we’ve created an app for the Energy FitFam to make it even easier for you to connect, get inspired and have FUN. Get the app here.
