5 Fitness Motivators

5 Fitness Motivators

Health and fitness often top people's list of New Year's resolutions. But three months into the year, staying on track with your goals can be a challenge with today's busy lifestyles. Here are five easy ways to stay motivated:

Mix it up a little. Let's face it, doing the same workout can get boring. But even if you enjoy doing the same workout every single day, your body gets accustomed to the effort and slows down your metabolism, which can lead to long plateaus. The Workout Trainer app (Android and Apple) offers thousands of free workouts, and step-by-step audio and video instructions so you don't need to hire a personal trainer.

Log your progress. Keep a simple workout journal to remind yourself of your growth. Soon enough, you'll be proud of the fact that you can lift more, run farther and recover faster. You can write your stats into a paper journal, or track them on a spreadsheet. If apps are more your thing, Fitocracy and JEFIT are two of the most popular fitness, diet and motivation trackers available, both with free and paid features.

Stop weighing yourself daily. Weight can vary as much as 5 pounds per day, no matter how careful you are or how many calories you think you're burning. Not only that, if you're working out and building muscle, your weight could occasionally increase, as muscle is heavier than fat. Weigh yourself every three to five days, preferably in the morning before you shower. Compare the results against your food and exercise log; over time you'll be able to see where you should make adjustments to diet or exercise.

Pay attention to your energy, sleep and stress levels. If you notice yourself feeling healthier, you're on the right track no matter what the scale says. Make a quick note in your journal about your overall feelings on your fitness and you may notice some interesting correlations.

Try on your "test trousers." Since progress can be difficult to judge from day to day, set aside a snug fitting pair of jeans and shirt you can try on periodically. Remember, the scale isn't always the best way to judge your progress. But this is a sure-fire method to help you see where and how much your body is changing shape and becoming more toned.

Staying motivated is part of the journey to fitness, and these tips will keep you on track to a healthier, happier you! Make sure to check with your doctor before beginning any diet or exercise program.
