How to Stick with Your Fitness Goals

Guys, it’s FOR REAL now. I just got back from a meeting with my coach. I am now officially registered for the Jax Physique show on April 8, 2017!

I have found that the best way to stick with fitness goals is to sign up for a competition or event. It can help hold you accountable. Plus, you’ll be out money if you don’t follow through.

There’s no backing out now. 

Well, that’s kind of a lie. I keep obsessively checking to see if I have abs yet. If I don’t on April 7th, I am totally backing out. I’m forfeiting $300 (plus the $600 for coaching, $300 for the suit, $20 for jewelry and $44.94 for the shoes) and calling it a day. 

Turns out there is a veeeeery fine line between following 300 fitness models on Instagram so that you stay focused…and having a mental breakdown. Every time they post their “10 weeks out” pictures I have a minor panic attack.

I think week 4 is why more people don’t compete. There is no instant gratification in this process. It’s just 5 meals of chicken and broccoli every day and residual soreness. But it’s also kind of addicting. 

Ways To Reward Yourself Besides Food

And on that note, since I am no longer rewarding myself with cheetos and cheesecake. I told myself my “treat” would be a new fitness-focused Instagram account once I officially registered for my first show. 

For some of you, it might seem like it’s only been a minute. However, I’ve been working on this for a year now! The fitness aspect, not creating an Instagram account (that takes 5 clicks). Anyways, I didn’t want to jump the gun just in case I decided to bail. But I didn’t. And I haven’t. And I’m ready to go all the way with this fitness thing.

So, I hope all of you who have been following my fitness goals progress over the past year will continue to cheer me on at lucilleporterfit. It’s so official sounding, right?! 

Xoxo,

Lucille
