You may have heard the quote,
“The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to break.”
Here are a few easy habits that when done consistently will have you looking and feeling better in no time.
Plan/schedule your workouts in advance.
Our program Triib makes it incredibly easy to plan your workouts ahead of time. The schedule feature allows you to reserve your spot in class with no limit on how many days in advance. The accountability factor here is really impactful. You’re signed up for class and your coaches are expecting you to show up. Make a promise to yourself that when you click that RSVP button you’re going to show up no matter what.
Prep Your Meals for the Week
Pick one or two days every week that are dedicated to shopping and cooking your meals. This may seem time consuming at first but with consistency it’ll quickly become a habit and something you hopefully look forward to every week.
If you’re not someone who likes to cook or wants to learn, there are plenty of meal delivery services available. In addition to that, Coach Tee is working one on one with individuals on their nutrition, meal prep, and providing cooking lessons. Coach Andy is available for your nutritional guidance for any weight loss/gain/body composition goals.
Get to bed at a consistent time.
Whether you realize it or not your body's internal clock craves consistency. Being erratic in your sleep can make it more difficult for you to get into a deep sleep where your body will produce the most growth hormone and reduce your cortisol levels. Think 8 hours in bed is 8 hours in bed? Devices like a Whoop will tell you otherwise. I've used the Whoop in the past and it really gave me insight to how I was sleeping and its impact on my recovery for the next day.
If you're a troubled sleeper, consider grabbing some ZMA or a supplement like CALM to help you count those Zzz's.
