We’re not sure about you, ladies, but spring brings so much hope and freshness! The temperature is picking up, and we don’t need to wear so many layers. There’s just something about spring that’s so motivating. So, whether you’ve fallen off your goals from the start of the year, or you’re just looking to let go of some unhealthy winter habits, then there’s no better time than now!
When you’re trying to stick to a goal, it can be so hard to know what’s the best way to go about achieving it when there’s so much conflicting information out there.
However, if you’re looking to shape up this spring, then we think our eight simple tips will help you tackle your goals!
Work out what’s your why?
If you’re looking to shape up this spring, why? And wanting to get in shape doesn’t always mean that you want to lose weight – sometimes, you just want to feel healthier, have better skin, have more energy, or tone up for an event like a wedding or holiday.
When you’re really clear on your why and the reason for getting in shape, it’ll give you something to visualize when times are tough and help you to power through a gruelling workout, as well as the motivation to turn down an invite for take out!
Move your body every day
Ensuring that you move your body every day, whether a daily walk around your local community or some kitchen dancing, will help you build up some motivation. Finding activities that you enjoy will help you find joy in being active and moving your body every day.

Eat whole foods
Often when you’re trying to lose weight, you’ll get a lot of advice about cutting carbs and counting calories, but instead of denying yourself, fuel your body with foods that are nutritious and tasty. Try to incorporate lots of fresh fruit and veg, whole grains, clean proteins, and lots of water into your diet.

Think of your new habits as a reward, not a punishment
Just like finding your why, adopting a positive mindset around your goals will make you more likely to succeed! Think of your new habits, like working out and eating good food, as treating yourself and giving yourself the gift of health.

Whereas, if you think of it as a punishment, and like we’re punishing ourselves by eating kale and doing HIIT classes, you’ll resent it, and it will feel a lot harder.
Don’t skimp on those precious ZZZs
A lot easier said than done, but sleep should be up there with eating well and working out regularly as a must for weight loss. In fact, recent studies have revealed that getting eight hours of good-quality sleep could be the key to losing the pounds and keeping them off.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Did you know that drinking more water is one of the simplest ways to boost your health? Good hydration supports your digestion, refuels your body, boosts your energy levels, and nourishes your skin.
Aim for at least eight glasses of water a day, and you’ll soon see the rewards.
Train with a friend
Whether you want to tone up, shift some weight or eat healthier, having someone on the journey with you is a powerful motivator, as well as great for accountability.
So, speak to your friends and see if anyone is keen to buddy up and keep the motivation alive!
