I get it. Life gets super busy sometimes. I know slacking on your diet and exercise is very common but know that once you go back to eating foods that you cut out and skipping workouts, it’s so easy to fall back into your old routine and completely lose motivation. Don’t lose hope. Here are some tricks to help you get back on track.
1. Close your eyes and focus. Why are you working out to begin with?
What has brought you to workout in the first place? Is a big event coming up? Health problems? Gained a little weight and now nothing fits? Take the time before each workout to remind yourself why you are doing what you are doing. Doing so will help you to make the changes that will make your workout as best as it can be.
2. One Step At A Time
Jordin Sparks was onto something when she sang “One Step At A Time.” The hardest part is getting to the gym or fitness studio. So put on your sassiest fitness gear and get to your workout. Once you get there commit to doing 10 minutes. If after 10 minutes if you find yourself not wanting to be there then go home but chances are you will feel your mood elevate and you’ll finish the workout.
3. Look at how far you’ve come.
Put on an item of clothing that doesn’t fit anymore because it’s too big. Small accomplishments deserve to be acknowledged. Just because you have one really big goal doesn’t mean you shouldn’t pay attention to the smaller things. Keep the big picture in mind but don’t forget to praise yourself for all that you have done so far.
It’s great that you are working out but you need to stay committed. Doing these simple things will help. Good Luck Sassy One!
