It can often be the case that going through a period of healthy eating and activity is fun during the first stage but later on things can start to flag.
Often you'll hear a co-worker or friend telling the by now familiar gym story - how they signed up at a local gym costing however much money a month, but somehow fell out of the habit of actually going along.
While it's not surprising that we can lose interest in things - especially things that require exertion amidst the bustle of everyday life. But there are things you can do try and keep up the motivation - whether it's for fitness or just general health.
1. Have a goal. No doubt this one goes without saying, but it needs to be repeated. We are goal-orientated beings. So don't just 'join a gym'. Join a gym with specific gaols in mind - fitness level, weight loss, a better BMI.
2. Make plans and stick to them. And if they need adapted - adapt them. Don't be derailed.
3. Network: find people at your place of employment or within your circle of friends and see if there are goals you could pursue together. If you're building up to something like running a 10k, having training mates can make an incredible difference.
4. Get info: there's a wealth of health books available, plus info in the wellbeing section of newspaper websites. Start reading a health blog or two. Breathe in the world of health and fitness daily.
5. This is the most important one: enjoy!
