The First Workout is the Hardest

Im 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. Im 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 Ill 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 tomorrows workout will be better. Im 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. Nows the time to commit to your health and make time for it. I cant tell you how many clients/students that Ive had over the years tell me,


I just cant find the time to do….”

I just find it too hard to fit my workout in.”

”its my husband…”

my kids…”

my job..” or

Its just been so long and I dont 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, were happier and our mood effects those around us. Were 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, Ive 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 its okay. Dont feel guilty for loving yourself, first! Youre just as important as anybody else.”  – Stephanie Lahart
