Identify when you normally crave for sugary foods or why you refuse to workout. Take note of what you’re feeling and all external factors that might be at play. This way it will be easier for you to avoid them in future.
Day 5: Increase your veggie intake
If you really don’t eat or like vegetables, now is the perfect time to re-introduce vegetables into your life. Start having by one serving of vegetable per week and increase your intake as you go. Vegetables can aid in weight loss and also improve your digestive system.
Day 6: Reconsider the scale
There’s nothing wrong with weighing yourself every now and then to see if you’re close to your goal or not, however if you’re only relying on the scale then it’s time to stash it at the back of your closet. Some progress in terms of your health or improvements such as your pants fitting you better or a boost in your overall happiness cannot be tracked by using a scale.
Day 7: Find the right time for you
Some people say working out in the morning can help you sleep better and some claim that working out in the evening can help you build muscle faster. Whatever your choice is, it really doesn’t matter, as long as you’re working out.
Day 8: Try meatless meals
Every now and then try something new in your fitness routine as it can keep you motivated. You can try meatless Monday, taco Tuesday, whatever Wednesday, pasta Thursday, fish Friday, stir fry Saturday, and salsa Sunday; the challenge is you need to keep all your meals as healthy as possible.
Day 9: Drink more water
Increase your water intake. If you have to, set a timer on your phone to remind you to drink more water.
Day 10: Include dark chocolate in your diet
Dark chocolate is healthy but you should really have them in moderation of course.
