With Memorial Day just around the corner, now is the perfect time to kick your fitness journey into high gear and begin to achieve your goals. Whether you are looking to slim down, tone up, or simply feel healthier and more confident, with dedication and the right approach, you can make significant progress in just a few weeks.

If I wanted to reach my goals by summertime, here are the things I’d start doing today:

  1. Set Clear and Realistic Goals. Start by defining what you want to achieve by Memorial Day. Be specific, whether it’s losing a certain amount of body fat, fitting into a particular dress size, or improving your strength and endurance. Make sure your goals are realistic and achievable within the timeframe.
  2. Create a Plan. Once you know what you want to accomplish, it’s time to create a plan of action. This should include both movement and nutrition. Schedule your workouts, plan your meals, and set aside time for self-care and recovery.
  3. Focus on Consistency. Consistency is key when it comes to reaching your fitness goals. Make a commitment to yourself to stick to your plan, even when motivation wanes. Remember, every small effort counts, so stay consistent and trust the process.
  4. Prioritize Nutrition. You can’t out exercise a bad diet. Food is how we age well, feel better, look younger and drop body fat. Focus on nourishing your body with whole, nutrient-dense foods. Limit processed foods, sugary snacks, and excessive alcohol intake.
  5. Drink Your Water. You should drink a minimum of half your body weight in ounces of water. Good hydration helps regulate body temperature, supports nutrient absorption and aids in muscle function.
  6. Track Your Progress. Nothing can improve if it isn’t tracked. Tracking and hitting macronutrient goals is the magic behind fat loss.
  7. Stay Positive and Be Patient. Remember, reaching your fitness goals is a journey, not a sprint. Stay positive, be patient with yourself, and celebrate every step forward, no matter how small.
