The past few weeks I’ve been finding it hard to motivate myself with my workouts. Not so much Kayla’s circuits but running and any other fitness, and getting up in the morning to do it is so difficult at the moment!
Yesterday I had a good think about my goals and the wall that I seemed to have hit and how I would refresh my plans to continue improving.
One thing that I need to improve on, is my diet. I’ve been telling myself this for so long now that I need to control what I am eating at the weekends and be more consistent with nutrition. Yesterday I looked at Kayla’s H.E.L.P guide again and instead of looking at the amounts this time and adapting to them, I’ve set myself a goal to follow the two week meal plan from today.
By setting smaller goals like two weeks instead of a month etc, it seems more realistic and therefore I’m more positive towards the idea. I’ve bought my food that I need for the first two days and I’m really looking forward to giving it a go.
In terms of workout goals, I have decided to change my 3 running sessions a week to 2, replacing one with a gym HIIT session on the bike or treadmill. At the moment, I am more motivated to go to the gym after work than I am running so I think this will be a good plan for me – also great for fat loss (fingers crossed).
It’s always good to create new goals and shock your body occasionally into new workouts. Your body will adapt to workouts after a period of time so always push yourself as much as you can, and keeping your goals in mind. Week 21 is way too far to come, to give up now!
