Correct habits or Every day matters
For weight loss, every day matters. To do this, you need to set a final goal and intermediate ones, keep reports in order to see the result and introduce new, correct habits into life. But how to do that?
Set a goal: final and intermediate
First, set a goal: final and intermediate. What body do you dream of? Let your imagination cross the wildest and most daring boundaries. Don't listen to anyone who says it's impossible! Do not reckon with people from whom negativity comes, interrupting your endeavors. If you really want it with all your soul and are willing to work towards it, don't stop! - go forward. Next, set a goal for the year ahead. Setting goals for the year ahead is very important, especially if you have a lot of work ahead of you on your body. For example, if you need to lose 50 kg, then this will take at least a year and a half. Don't expect or even try to complete this task faster. Losing weight quickly leads to negative consequences.
Probably the most important task is setting goals 3 months in advance. Three months is a great time for short-term tasks because you can change a lot in 3 months. Many people can completely change their body in 90 days. In 3 months it is realistic to lose about 6% of body fat, from 6 to 12 kg of fat. Setting a 3 month goal is very important because if you are setting a long term goal, then you don't need to rush. If you only have an annual goal, then you will most likely be procrastinating, because it will come very, very soon, so there is no point in rushing. When the deadline is right in front of you, you will realize that every meal and every workout counts. You must become your own trainer and nutritionist. No dad, no mom, no husband / wife, no friend, no coach, but YOU, YOU and only YOU.
Make interim reports
You also need weekly reports to remind you that you are on track for a bigger goal. Reports like these are short-term summaries of results, giving you an immediate idea of whether you are heading in the right direction or not.
Reports required during the week:
weighing result for a week;
Reports required once a month:
weighing results by week;
- measurement of body volumes;
- tucks of the skin fold.
- reduce the amount of sugar consumed;
- waking up early in the morning;
- go to bed no later than 22: 00-23: 00;
- plan and prepare meals for the next day;
- plan the groceries you need to buy to be ready for next week.
If you record positive results, then everything is in order, do not change anything and continue to act. If you are not satisfied with the results, then you must immediately take action and correct the course.
Daily correct habits
To achieve your weekly, 3-month, 12-month and final goals, you must develop good daily habits. You should develop these habits every day for the duration of your weight loss until they become as essential habits as brushing your teeth or taking a morning shower. Create a list of daily goals to accomplish and habits to develop.
eating small portions of food throughout the day;
Major long-term goals do not work without short-term goals, big goals and small goals consist of them. In other words, tomorrow starts to take shape today, and a big house starts with the first brick. And your body is a living expression of your point of view of the world.
