So, now you have envisioned your goal, put your plan into action and incorporated exercise. Now, it is time to stick to your plans and stay motivated. It takes time to accomplish your goals, but you should notice results within the first week or two. For me, it is so hard to stay motivated when I don’t do well one week or if I fall off the wagon (because of vacation for example).
If you seem to have lost your motivation, re-evaluate your plan. Did you try to change too much too fast? It is hard to follow a diet plan if it is too strict. Don’t deprive yourself. Everything in moderation. Make sure you are exercising properly and enough. Do you know somebody that would like to lose weight or exercise more? The buddy system always seems to work well. Grab an exercise and/or diet partner and work together.
