So, you’ve fallen off the Band Wagon*

Monday, 26 October 2015, By Kristy Lovegrove

So you've fallen off the band wagon and need someone to blame, sure you've been following your program completely by eating the right macro's, doing your weights and sufficient cardio each week right? At the end of the day you need to be true to yourself and ask yourself in front of the mirror, "Am I giving this 100%" time to quit making excuses at the end of the day you've only got yourself to blame. We all have equally the same amount of hours in the day 24 hours, 7 days a week is 189 hours or 11340 minutes. It's what we choose to do with these hours that's really going to make an impact on our health. After all we only have one body, you need to take action and look after yourself otherwise you will turn yourself into a walking time bomb.

First thing first, is stop making excuses. The only one who is listening to these excuses is yourself, you are in complete denial. How can you put a value on your health? Take these road blocks that you have created for yourself and turn these into stepping stones that are going to get you to your optimum health and make you feel good about yourself not just physically but mentally as well. By setting yourself SMART goals, these are going to get you closer to your DREAM goal. Don't be afraid to travel the journey alone.

Write your goals down and have them somewhere that you are going to see each day and constantly remind yourself what you want to achieve. If the goals scare you this is good, it means you are really going to have to work hard to get there, make it inspiring. What's the point of making it easy, it's really not going to challenge you in anyway. If you can dream it, you surely can do it. We aren't all born to be what we are, we have to work towards it. How many success stories do you need to hear before you write your own? You are the creator of your journey don't let anyone else write it for you, take control.

Take time to reflect on how far you have come. By falling of the band wagon you need to reassess what was working previously for you and what are things that have caused you to come to a standstill. If the goals are too big, break them down and set give yourself recognition. This doesn't have to be materialistic but just a note to yourself that you have accomplished a goal you set yourself- give yourself a high five. When you truly believe in what you are doing in life, it shows.  You have taken the extra bounce in your step, you have become excited about what direction you are heading into.
