What is the best way to make workouts and healthy eating easier?
Focus on why you workout. What is the prize you aim to achieve? When you're tempted to splurge at a restaurant, envision that part of your body that you dislike and how much you want that to change. Then think about how great you felt when you lost those last few pounds or inches.
Focus on why you workout BEFORE you order something to eat. Is the pasta or that plate of french fries worth it? Be conscious of why you are eating. A planned weekly cheat day is fine, that's how you take care of cravings, keeping YOU in control. Not the other way around.
Schedule workout times days ahead so that nothing else interferes. Don't think of exercise as an option; think of it as one of those necessary things that you do, like brushing your teeth. Remind yourself of how bad you feel when you skip workouts and how good you feel when you attend them. Consider hiring a personal trainer to make working out part of your routine especially if you are struggling to make working out a habit.
