With the warmer season approaching, many people are trying to find ways to sculpt their bodies. Most people start this journey with setting a new years resolution and trying to stick with it. However, according to Forbes only 8% of people actually accomplish their goals. The key to staying fit and healthy is repetition and creating a lifestyle for yourself. Here are some ways to actually accomplish your summer body goals…

  1. Start with a planner- write down all of your health goals and how you will accomplish them
  2. Find a fitness program you enjoy- start off easy with your exercise and make sure you enjoy the program because if you don’t like the workouts you will burn out faster  
  3. Stop buying your cravings- nutrition counts as 80% of weight loss and once you fill your pantry with healthy food you will forget about your cravings
  4. Treat yourself- everyone deserves to treat themselves every once in awhile and help subside their cravings so go out and buy yourself one of your favorite treats once a week
  5. Drink water- staying hydrated is extremely helpful for your body and your mind and water intake increases how quickly your body heals from working out
  6. Invite a buddy- working out and participating in a fitness journey is always better with a partner and someone to push yourself with
  7. Rest- sleep and rest helps the body rejuvenate itself and you need to always make time for rest
  8. Never give up on yourself- there might be setbacks in your journey but always remember that as long as you keep trying you’re making progress
