I've fallen off the fitness wagon for a bit. Any tips on how to get motivated and back on track?
So life caught up with you and gave you a bit of a beatdown eh? Motivation dropped, laziness took over, and you're fighting to get yourself out of the whole you dug for yourself?
Now the real work begins. Now you see what it takes when motivation fails, so you can avoid this trap in the future.
The first thing you need to know is that you're motivated by your goals. Not some lofty 'someday' goals, but very specific - achievable goals. When you have something you're working towards, especially with a deadline in sight, you're going to be much more motivated to work out.
Ever seen someone try to get in shape 4 weeks away from their vacation? Same idea.
Then you need to understand how to build a workout routine you'll actually stick to. Perfection doesn't exist, and if you reach for perfection you'll find yourself back in the unmotivated slump once again.
Instead you need to reach for realistic. That may be 3 days a week instead of 5, or fewer exercises than you wish you could do, or even working out from home.
Consistency trumps perfection.
If all else fails, accountability is your ticket. Find a workout partner that's more committed than you are, or enter an online fitness challenge. Pay for a personal trainer or a fitness coach, if that's what it takes.
Remember, the hardest day is day 1, after that it gets easier. The longer you do it, the more natural it gets.
So, just get back in there. Even if it's just walking or making some healthier decisions. One good decision can start a snowball effect of great decisions.
Like using Greens Factor every day to help your stomach feel flatter, and to help with any digestive issues you may have - like gas or bloating. It's easy, delicious, it's good for you, and it can be the 'snowball' to keep you on track.
