5 Tips to Not Quit Exercising and Eating Better

I encourage you to keep exercise going through the tough times and stumbling blocks to burn fat and lose weight. Don't stop exercising and eating better--your long-term health and lean body depends on it.

No matter what your "exercise and nutrition past" may be, you can start now and go forward with a committed attitude toward exercise and healthy eating.

You don't have to figure it all out today. Just make the commitment and get the help you need to make it happen. I recommend a consultation with a personal trainer to start you on the right path.

Here are 5 tips to keep good exercise and eating habits going:

1. Surround yourself with positive people who will hold you accountable to your stated fitness goals. Research proves that those with social support have a better chance of succeeding with fitness goals such as fat loss and weight loss.

Personal trainers, workout partners, spouses and friends are all good candidates. Don't try to reach your fitness goals alone.

2. Schedule an appointment with a personal trainer to get valuable guidance and feedback. A trainer will help you to be realistic about goals and show you how to reach them.

You will also get a fitness and nutrition assessment. You may also need to schedule a doctor's appointment before beginning an exercise program.

3. Be willing to change your way of exercising and eating habits, if it hasn't worked for you. If you haven't burned the fat and lost the weight you need to, there is a reason. A personal trainer can customize your training program to make it work for you.

4. Change up your workouts to keep your body guessing (and making progress) and to avoid boredom. Some changes include (but not limited to):

a. alternate lifting light weight and heavy weight days,
b. adjust the number of repetitions and sets,
c. do different exercises for the same muscle groups,
d. alternate routines such as circuit training, superset training and complex training and
e. change the speed of your sets such as using slow, moderate and full speed repetitions.

You could also use combinations of all the above to break through weight loss plateaus.

5. If you fail 100 times, get back up 100 times and try again. You will not always exercise right and eat right. But, you can keep trying until you succeed. Believe that you are worth the effort!

I don't know if you make New Year's fitness resolutions. Maybe you make them each year and fail each year. Here is a solution for you: make a New Life fitness commitment and keep it going no matter what.
