THIS WEEK’S “ASK GILAD” BLOG
Question: I have been exercising with you for 2 years and I am happy with what I have accomplished, but now I want more! I want to develop my core. I want to be able to participate in track and field events and I want to be able to swim better. Where should I start?
Answer: You have reached your initial goal and now you are feeling like you can conquer the world. It's a great feeling, isn't it? A good way to move forward is to make a list of the new goals you want to achieve. Review your list once a week or so to see if you are progressing, maintaining or slipping back into old habits.
Remember, work patiently and progressively on one goal at a time. Don't overdo it. The key is to avoid discouragement at all times. Instead, encourage success! Tell yourself that you are in control of your eating and exercise habits. They do not control you. Tailor-make a plan that works for you.
