Getting to your fitness goal can be an entire journey filled with ups and downs, mistakes, and lessons. It can be quite personal while also shared and understood by many. But once you have completed your fitness goal it’s no the time to let everything out of hand. It’s the right time to learn how to maintain your results and keep the pounds off.
Keep Your Fitness Results
Give Yourself A Break
You’ve been working hard to lose those pounds and while it’s generally a bad idea to go back to your old ways giving yourself a small break can be more beneficial than you know. First, cutting calories for too long can wreck havoc on your metabolism and working out too much can lead to lack of energy. If you feel like indulging do so moderately and if your weight won’t budge any longer stop cutting and start maintaining your weight. Give your body a chance to adapt to this new weight.
Yeah, it’s tempting to just cut all the bad stuff from your diet but let’s be honest one of these days it just might lead to a nasty binge, so even if you’re still trying to lose weight, indulge moderately once or twice a week. This will allow you to relax but also keep you on track without binging and bad mood.
While keeping your diet clean is important exercising is equally important to not only your physical appearance but overall health. And keeping your figure in shape is much easier with exercise than diet alone.
Sometimes completing a fitness goal can take a lot of time so if you feel less and less motivated with time and yet have a long way to go, take a break. Try to maintain what you have gained for a while, replete your energy stores, and then keep on going. Get out of fitness rut
