Here are a few tips for getting your workout routine back on track, when you come back from vacations, work or an unexpected little time off.
Not being able to jump in where you left off can be discouraging and makes it easy to quit, set reasonable expectations based on how long you’ve been away. Start small and then push yourself to work up to and beyond where you were before.
GET A BUDDY AND KEEP IN TOUCH.
Sharing your weekly goals and asking for follow-up will help solidify your commitment, find a friend who’s also trying to get back to it—or just a reliable buddy—and touch base at least once a week or drag them into the gym with you.
FIND MOTIVATION FROM WITHIN.
eplace the motivation of outside factors that fade with how great you feel and look when you’re in a consistent routine. Put a picture of yourself at your healthiest on your fridge, your closet or your phone and write down why you want to be there again to remind yourself of the best reason to get healthy.
DON’T TRY TO MAKE UP FOR LOST TIME.
Remember that getting in shape takes time. If you start with workouts that are too intense you’ll increase your risk for injury, and trying to make too many changes all at once will likely lead you to feel overwhelmed and therefore, more likely to give up. Instead take small, progressive steps and remember to keep your workouts fun and exciting. Plus work with the coaches to help you scale and modify workouts to keep you on a safe and strong progression to help you reach your goals, we will help keep the workouts fun challenging and exciting but don't try to go out too hard too soon. Listen to the CFIB Coaches.
