1. Tracking down your nutrition

Tracking down your eating and drinking habits for three days is a great wake up call. You will realize how often you eat, what you eat and you will also pay attention to your water intake. You can also add notes about your level of hungriness and mood during the days. Are you eating because you are hungry or because you are bored? If you don't want to use pen and paper, there are great apps out there. For example, MyFitnessPal helps you to get back on track by checking the right calorie intake and macros.

If you notice that your nutrition habits need improvement, then get a custom meal plan which helps you to get your calorie intake and portion sizes right. The custom meal plan also helps you to eat regularly and prepping healthy and tasty meals & snacks. This way you are not over-eating, your blood sugar is not traveling up and down and you feel energetic!

2. Step goal helps you to get back on track

If the idea of exercising makes you already feel exhausted and unmotivated then how about getting your daily activity to the next level. Think about making every day 10.000 steps. Having a clear goal for each day will motivate you to achieve it and before you notice, you are getting more and more active.

Increasing daily activity not only burns more calories but has a magnificent effect on your health. The fitness tracker is a great help to track your steps. If you don't own a fitness tracker, you can also use your phone for tracking the steps. After a while, you will notice that your energy level and mood are increasing and next you will get motivated to start with easy workouts.

Take small steps towards your goal. If you are struggling to find the motivation to do it alone, then hiring a fitness coach is a great help to get back on track and stay motivated and exercise regularly.

3. Reducing alcohol consumption

Drinking a glass of wine once in a while is fine. But when it becomes an every night habit and you are pouring your glass fuller night after night, then it is time for a checkup. Consuming too much alcohol does not only disturb your sleeping but also increases your calorie consumption which can slowly lead to weight gain and make you feel bloated and dehydrated.

Consuming too much alcohol will definitely not help you to get back on track and more active. After a restless night, you just wake up more tired than you actually went to bed. Better close that wine cork and save the enjoyment for a special occasion.
