I’m tired after a much needed vacation. Funny, how a vacation can exhaust you, when the whole point of going on one is to destress from the exhaustion we had before the vacation. I’m also tired, because Andrea and I just did one of our “Technique” workouts and it was the first one back. That first workout (after a week off) was the hardest one for me.
I forget sometimes.
How hard it can be, getting back to the rhythm of things. It was only a year ago, when I just had baby Dean and felt the same. Hearing that little voice say, “ugh, maybe I’ll just start tomorrow or the next day”. But, I did it. Did I feel amazing afterwards? No. Still felt bloated, cranky and not to mention it was a Monday. But, I did feel accomplished and I know tomorrow’s workout will be better. I’m saying this, because I KNOW how hard it is to get back on track.
The first workout is always the hardest!
The more time you take off, the harder it will be towards making those healthy habits. Summer is coming to an end. The vacations are done. Kids are back in school. Pool parties are over. Now’s the time to commit to your health and make time for it. I can’t tell you how many clients/students that I’ve had over the years tell me,
“I just can’t find the time to do….”
“I just find it too hard to fit my workout in.”
”it’s my husband…”
“my job..” or
“It’s just been so long and I don’t know how or where to start.”
No one is going to do it for you. YOU are your own advocate. Not only that, but when we workout, we’re happier and our mood effects those around us. We’re a better spouse, parent, colleague, friend…
Make it a commitment
Can you do me a favor and commit? Commit to going to bed early. Set your alarm. Get your cutest outfit laid out and block out that time. To help you get started, I’ve added a 30 minute workout for you, from our “30 for 30 Challenge” 30 minutes a day, for 30 days.
Make your health a habit and cut the excuses.
“Respect, Love, and Value yourself. Always remember to be good to yourself by taking care of yourself. Make yourself a priority and know that it’s okay. Don’t feel guilty for loving yourself, first! You’re just as important as anybody else.” – Stephanie Lahart
