5 tips to help keep working out


Follow via BLOGLOVIN / FACEBOOK / INSTAGRAM

Now, tell me honestly, was “working out” one of your new year resolutions? How's it going with that now that the first month of 2017 is over? Finding the time and motivation to get yourself working out and then staying on track and exercising regularly can be mentally challenging (at least I can come up with countless excuses I tell myself all the time...)  But you actually do want to become fitter / stronger / healthier, which is why you gave yourself that resolution in the first place, right😉 So if you are lacking motivation, here is how to stick to your fitness goals and keep working out:

1. Set Goals

Instead of wanting just to lose weight in general, set clear goals like how many kilograms / centimeters you want to lose or what kind of abs, arms or butt you want to have. This way you'll have something to measure you're progress from!

2. Get Inspired

What works the best for me, whenever I feel like not working out and can't find the motivation to go to the gym, is looking at different photos. There's nothing that gets me up and moving faster than seeing a photo of a beautiful healthy toned body😉 Another thing that always works is cute workout clothes! Pick the design and color you like and you'll feel so much more motivated to train when you're wearing a cool workout outfit.

3. Start Small

I totally understand you wanting your dream body right away. I would like to be as strong and toned as I was 3 years ago too, but unfortunately it doesn't happen over nightđŸ˜© Remember to start small - smaller weights, shorter running distances, low-intensity workouts etc until your body grows stronger. There's no point in doing a killer HIIT workout with heavy weights right away, cause you'll only end up with a really sore body for the next few days. Also, don't forget to mix things up and try different workouts to keep things interesting for yourself!

4. Make It A Habit

It takes 21 days to turn something into a habit and then on it will be so much easier to do. So set your exercise regimen as a habit and within 3 weeks you'll grow into liking it instead of finding excuses not to do it. Consistency is the key!

5. Celebrate

Also, don't take it too seriously. At the end of the day, you have to enjoy your life, so every once in a while have a burger and a glass of wine😉 Every goal achieved is a reason to celebrate!

So, who's going to work out tomorrow?😊


Öelge mulle ausalt, kui paljudel teist oli ĂŒks uusaastalubadusi endale "hakata trennis kĂ€ima"? Kuidas sellega lĂ€heb? Leida see aeg ja motivatsioon enda treeningsaali vedamiseks ja seejĂ€rel ka regulaarselt hakata treenima vĂ”ib olla vaimselt pĂ€ris suur vĂ€ljakutse (vĂ€hemalt mina olen endale kĂŒll lugematu arv kordi vabandusi leidnud, miks trennis kĂ€imist vahele jĂ€tta...) Kuid meie eesmĂ€rk on ju tegelikult saada tugevamaks / saledamaks / tervislikumaks, mille pĂ€rast ka see lubadus endale aasta alguses antud sai eks😉 Seega tuleb trennis kĂ€imine endale harjumuseks saada! Kui motivatsioon puudub, siis tasub jĂ€rgida neid nĂ”uandeid, mille abil on trenni-eesmĂ€rkide saavutamine ja trennis kĂ€imine oluliselt kergem:

1. Sea eesmÀrgid

Selle asemel, et lihtsalt soovida kaalust alla vĂ”tta, sea endale kindlad ning mÔÔdetavad eesmĂ€rgid, mitu kilogrammi plaanid kaotada, mitme sentimeetri vĂ”rra oma ĂŒmbermÔÔte vĂ€hendada vĂ”i milliseid kĂ”hulihaseid / kĂ€sivarsi / jalgu endale tahad. Kindlate eesmĂ€rkide korral on ka oma arengut palju parem mÔÔta!

2. Inspireeri ennast

Iga kord, kui ma ei leia endas seda jĂ”udu ja viitsimust trenni minna, aitab mul motivatsiooni saada piltide vaatamine. Ilusa treenitud keha nĂ€gemine inspireerib mind kĂ”ige paremini ennast pĂŒsti ajama ja liigutama panema😉 Teine asi, millega end trennilainele hÀÀlestada on ilusad spordiriided! Vali endale oma lemmikvĂ€rvi ja mustritega trennikomplekt ning tunned kohe, kuidas oled palju agaram trennisaali minema, et oma ilusat trennivarustust kanda.

3. Alusta vaikselt

Ma saan tĂ€iesti aru, et tahaks oma unistustekeha nĂŒĂŒd ja kohe. Mulle ka meeldiks olla praegu sama heas vormis, kui ma olin 3 aastat tagasi, kuid paraku ei juhtu sellised asjad ĂŒleĂ¶Ă¶đŸ˜© Kuid siiski alusta vaikselt - vĂ€iksemate raskustega, kergemate treeningutega, lĂŒhemate jooksudistantside ja vĂ€iksema kiirusega. Lase oma kehal harjuda ja tugevamaks saada, selle asemel, et kohe suure hurraaga peale minna. Pole mĂ”tet end kohe HIIT treeninguga ja suurte raskustega "rihmaks" tĂ”mmata, kuna see ei too muud, kui jĂ€rgmised kolm-neli pĂ€eva valutavaid lihaseid. Lisaks soovitan kindlasti proovida erinevaid treeninguid, et asi huvitav ja vĂ€ljakutsuv oleks!

4. Tee trennist harjumus

Selleks, et millestki saaks harjumus, vÔtab aega 21 pÀeva. Peale seda on seda juba tunduvalt lihtsam teha. Sama kehtib ka trenni kohta, mistÔttu muuda trennis kÀimine endale harjumuseks ning kolme nÀdala möödudes nÀed, kuidas sa juba ootad trenni minemist selle asemel, et leida endale vabandusi sinna minna minemiseks. JÀrjepidevus toob vÔidu!

5. TĂ€hista

Samas, Ă€ra vĂ”ta kogu trenniasja liiga tĂ”siselt. Elad vaid korra ning seda elu peab nautima, seega söö mĂ”nuga vahetevahel burgereid ja joo klaasike veini😉 Iga saavutatud eesmĂ€rk vÀÀrib tĂ€histamist!

KĂ€ed pĂŒsti, kes homme trenni lĂ€heb?😊
