How to Stop Procrastinating On Your Fitness Goals

Beat the stress not yourself

Can you ever forget the moment when you seriously took it upon yourself to better your health, fitness, energy level and life in general? I am sure you cannot. Then what happened midway?  If you made that decision to get fit then you have to live up to it. You have to finish what you have started. It was your call and you cannot ditch yourself like that.

Yes, there will be times when you will get tired of eating the same diet food over and over, you will get bored of the same workout routine and you may even help yourself to an extra serving of your favorite dessert sometime and later on curse yourself for it. This is the moment when you need to understand that there is nothing wrong in doing so and it is completely normal. Once you have already done what you think you shouldn’t have, then there is no point in beating yourself over it. Know that it is okay to indulge in your cravings once in a while as after all, you get to live this life only once.

Don’t pressurize yourself with the idea of losing weight and run after setting a target for burning a rigid number of calories so much that you forget to enjoy the bliss in your life. Remember, it is all right to allow minor fluctuations in your routine once in a while. In fact knowing that you are flexible in your fitness routine will keep your mind calm which will actually increase your will power and strengthen your determination which will lead you to achieve a new level of success in your fitness journey.

Finish what you started

Now that you read those “stress busters” and are elated that at least there is someone in this world who understands you and has been able to comfort you after you hogged a big red velvet pastry all by yourself, well its all right but remember this – Do not let this become a habit! You will always find reasons not to work out and just eat more. Sometimes, you may even surprise yourself with the kind of excuses you will come up with. But No! Trash those stupid ideas, stop wasting your time finding more reasons to get that flab, stop promising yourself that you won’t do it again, when even you know that this is the exact promise you broke earlier too so many times.


Decide once and for all that it is high time when you need to revert and get going. So, get up, get into your workout mode and just start your workout sessions. What may seem so hard today will become your warm up tomorrow. Yes, I mean it. There is no need to lose hope and motivation that got you started in the first place. Remember you were a winner when you decided to get rid of that extra burden on your poor two little feet. Once you begin your journey then there should be nothing to stop you, not even your own procrastinations.

You have the power

How you keep yourself going, completely depends on you because you only know, what you want to change in your life and its only you-only you who has the power to change your life. Your focus throughout your fitness journey should only be on you. Do it for your own self because you want it that way and not for others. Remember, some years down the line you will be able to appreciate the beauty of your own mind and the strength that your body could endure just for your own joy and bliss of fitness and good health.
