Now that it’s getting warmer, sunnier, and prettier outside, it can be hard to hit the gym and keep your goals on track. Our “New Year’s Resolutions” start creeping further and further away. But…with that warm weather, it’s actually the perfect time to stay on track and stay focused! Check out my tips below for meeting your fitness goals during the spring.

How to Keep Your Fitness Goals in the Spring

1.) Set out your workout clothes the night before. This is essential! It’s amazing how that 1 little thing can help you get into the mindset of working out, going for a run, or whatever activity you do to get moving each day.

2.) Plan the rest of your day after your workout in the morning. Set that workout time just like you do a doctor’s appointment. You have to do it! That mindset will really help you to make it a must-do action item.

3.) Get an accountability partner. This is a big one for me! Without that other friend who you can’t cancel on, it is too easy to just skip working out, eating healthy, cooking at home, or tracking macros.

4.) Plan your meals in advance and track your macros. Uh-huh, it’s important! If you were trying to budget and save money, you would track your finances, right?? The same goes for your food. It can quickly get away from you if you don’t keep track of it, just like finances!

5.) Set realistic but specific goals. We can’t identify what we want to change or what we want to do if we don’t exactly even know what that is. You need a specific goal, not just one that says I want to be healthier. What is healthy to you? Be specific. For example, I want to drink 8 glasses of water a day. I want to be active for 30 minutes 5 days a week, or I want to get 8+ hours of sleep a night. Maybe I want to cut out added sugar. I want to cook 6 out of 7 days at home. Whatever your goals are, define them.

6.) Keep a schedule. Adding your workout, food prepping, macro counting, whatever it is, to your day helps you to make a schedule. This helps you to know what to expect each day. And you definitely want to add healthy habits to your daily schedule!

7.) Build healthy habits. Doing something so often that it becomes a habit is what you want, especially when it comes to healthy choices you make and things you do. That means that you won’t even give it another thought when it comes to being active, meal prepping, etc. Build those healthy habits!

8.) Get outside in the outdoors. As I said, the spring is the perfect time! It isn’t too hot yet, but the weather feels amazing. Go for a hike, a run, or an outdoor yoga class. Just get some sunshine. It has so many amazing benefits for your mood and your health. Just remember to use that sunscreen. = )

9.) Try a new workout! The best way to not get bored is to mix it up! Mary Kate and I recently started a new hot yoga class at YogaSix in downtown Memphis. It was amazing! It was the perfect way to find a renewed love of working out and try something new.

10.) Grab a new spring workout outfit! What better way to get excited about working out than to get a new outfit for spring, right?! I just recently got this adorable little set from Varley, and I am in love! I love the color, and it is so amazingly soft! They have the best pieces, and their spring line is awesome!
