Keeping the Momentum Going
Review Your Goals
Take a look back at your S.M.A.R.T. goals you set for yourself back in Week 1 of this challenge. Did you meet them? Just because the Get Moving Challenge is over doesn’t mean you have to stop trying to achieve your set goals. Keep working toward your goals! Even if it takes you longer than you expected, keep pushing until you have meet your goals successfully.
Find What Works for You
There is no “one size fits all” diet or exercise regimen. Choose healthy food options you enjoy eating and find a workout routine that works for you. Choosing something that you truly enjoy eating and doing helps make it easier for you to partake in, simply because you enjoy doing it.
Create a Support System
Surrounding yourself with a group of people who support you is a great way to keep up your momentum. With the help of others, you’ll never feel like you’re on your own. A support system also will hold you accountable for your actions will encourage you to push forward in achieving your goals.
Don’t be so hard on yourself. Rewarding yourself along the way is another way to keep your momentum going. But be careful not to put too much pressure on yourself, as it may cause you to lose your focus. Always make time for yourself here and there, and realize small rewards are a great way to remind yourself that you’re a step closer to achieving your goals.
