Happy Tuesday !
Is it just me or time goes by sooo fast !!
So I realized that I’ve been putting more music that talking about fitness ! Haha That kind of goes against the blog name doesn’t it !
So today i decided to dedicate a post JUST to fitness !
I mentioned before that I used to workout 6 days a week. That slowly diminished to 3, then none.
Once you’ve stopped workout out consistently it’s always hard to get back into it. I decided to give some tips that helped me get back into the groove of things. This might help motivate you or not even help you at all. I’m just letting you guys know what helped me and hopefully can help you as well!
1- Make a calendar and plan your workouts : This always helps me out ! If I have a plan and can cross things off, there’s no way I can’t do it!
2- Go to bed at the same time every night and wake up at the same time : This might help with the next tip ! You might also feel more energized and not to tired to workout !
3- Workout in the morning : This is my most crucial tip (for me anyways). When I workout in the morning I feel much more awake, I feel like I accomplish more during the day. Plus your workout’s done, so in the evening you can do whatever you please !
3- Sign up for a race or fitness course : It’s always more motivating when you have an actual goal ! It might also help to sign up for a course or class. For example, a 6 week yoga class might help you get out the door and sweat! I love group fitness because you get to know the teacher and some of the students, it’s like a mini social outing, but you’re working out at the same time!
4- Track your progress : It’s always more encouraging when your seeing progress! The more you see progress, the changes are you’ll want to workout more and increase your intensity !
5- Write down your objectives and see were you’re at each month (or week) : Again, it helps when you have something that’s writing down. It will help you remember what you’re aiming for and you’ll be able to know if you’re getting close to reaching you’re goals and/or re-evaluate.
6- Buy some gear : This one is my fave!! Haha Buying something new always makes me want to try it out! Especially running shoes, I just want to go straight out the door and jog away !
Hope this helps ! But remember, little steps. Getting fit is not all or nothing. You can start by walking a couple days a week, then maybe running. If you miss a day, it’s no big deal, just go at it the next day or the next day !
Point is, if you’re struggling, don’t get discourage! No matter how long or how hard the important this is that you’ll get there <3
And to try out these tips, here are some sweaty workouts that you can attempt at home or in the gym!!
