Here are three key things to keep in mind so that you can stay focused.
1. Don’t turn a blind eye on your diet

2. Don’t leave your fitness goals to chance
Now that you no longer going to the gym, think of creative ways to stay active.
- Try rope skipping
- Yoga with the family at home
- Find online exercise videos to follow in the comfort of your home
- Chase the kids around the yard
Don’t leave it to chance. Plan your weekly exercise activities to get a variety of activities so that you can give your body a full workout.
3. Maintain a balance
Even though exercise is essential to becoming healthier and fit, you should not neglect all the other factors that contribute to a healthy body like getting enough rest, staying hydrated and eating healthily.
