What happens when we mentally (or physically) have hit a plateau with our fitness and meal prep?? What happens when you’re struggling to see progress?? What happens when you’ve hit your goals, but then are bored and not sure what to next?? It happens to the best of us and is important to discuss!
We are constantly talking about healthy food options, fueling our body for exercise and making it into the gym. But as people continue down their health journey, it can be easy to get sidetracked or frustrated by progress and we can lose sight of the big picture.
When these things happen, it’s easy to grasp at straws and ditch healthy eating all together, or become obsessive with exercise and go to the other extreme. Progress sometimes looks like maintenance, which can be mentally challenging when we are used to seeing numbers move. BUT maintenance is the most important stage!!
In health and fitness there is no deadline. So maintaining a healthy relationship with food and exercise, helps us from getting obsessed and venturing too far to the extremes that can be harmful for our body (under eating and over exercising). Watch this video to help with some tips to keep things in perspective and keep a healthy balance in life and remember that health is not a destination, but a lifestyle.
