Getting healthy isn’t about sprinting to the finish line. It’s more about creating habits that help you get through a marathon. Healthy habits will help you reach your personal goals and maintain your success rather than getting you to where you want to be, then reverting six months later. At Bmorefitbody POSSE, we offer help from a healthy lifestyle coach who can help transform your life. Read our guide below that outlines some of the ways your coach can help.
Individualized nutrition plan
There are plenty of fad diets out there that you’re going to hear about when talking to “fitness gurus” at the gym. Keep in mind that the key to a sustainable healthy lifestyle is sustainable eating. You can’t jump on the train with a fad diet and stay healthy for the long term. Healthy eating is more about a balanced diet than extreme eating. Your health coach can help you identify foods that fit your dietary needs and help focus on your overall health.
Creating unique exercise plans
Your exercise plan needs to be designed specifically toward your personal goals and what you can physically attain. An exercise plan is essential to ensuring that you have a plan to exercise each week and what you’re going to do for each. Targeted exercise plans are designed to scale your workouts to meet checkpoints as you work toward your goals. One of the great things about personal exercise plans is that you can make changes as necessary along the way. If you start to see results faster than expected, don’t be afraid to ramp up your efforts. In contrast, you can tone down your workouts if you start to feel you’re over-training.
Help you push yourself
One of the hardest things to do when working out or creating new habits in your diet is pushing yourself. Exercising can be uncomfortable, so it’s easy to quit when you start to get tired or want to be done. You might also want to take an extra cheat day with your diet before it’s scheduled. A healthy lifestyle coach will help you stay disciplined in your plan to break old habits and create new ones.
Hold you accountable
Working toward your goals is excellent when you’re continually putting in the effort. However, it can get easy to let up on your workouts for a few days or overeat for a few days. Your lifestyle coach can help you stay on the path to improving your habits by holding you accountable. You’ll check in with your coach weekly, monthly, or even daily to report how you’ve been sticking to your plan. These meetings are a great way to ensure that you’re doing what needs to be done to achieve your goals.
Provide blueprints for creating habits
Making and breaking habits isn’t easy. Most of us have good intentions when setting goals to improve ourselves, but our bad habits can creep in and keep us from doing what we know we need to do. One common bad habit among those looking to improve their lifestyle is the belief that they have to hate the way they look or feel. This toxic self-hate isn’t helpful at all because you beat yourself up with even the tiniest failures along the way, which can lead to negative feelings about healthy habits and make you want to give up. Your lifestyle coach can help you with positive thinking as you work to overcome negativity and backward thinking.
