Does this image resonate with you? It does with me. That internal struggle we have when we occupy ourselves with other things, when we know we should go workout or move our bodies. Here are some of my tips that have helped me ignore that inner voice.
Going to the gym, a fitness class, yoga or other activities were much more easier before kids. Not that that’s an excuse, it’s just fact.
So when I was ready to start my fitness journey I needed something at my finger tips and preferable a program I could do at home. Through time, I have learned to be disciplined with following my fitness programs. The following simple tips will help you start incorporating fitness into your life, no matter your situation.
Schedule It In
Like literally, put it in your calendar or whatever you use and schedule your fitness. Have a class you go to, great schedule it! Meeting a friend for a walk, schedule it! Doing a workout at home, schedule it.
Make it a priority, and plan your day around it. Once your fitness becomes a routine in your life you are bound to be more consistent and successful.
I use to workout when when my youngest napped and that typically was within the same time frame on a daily basis. Once she got rid of naps and school schedule became a priority, I changed to working out first thing in morning.
Pick Something you Enjoy Doing
Duh! Love to dance, try Zumba! Have a dog, go for walks. You get my point. Once you start doing something you enjoy doing, it becomes less of a chore.
Get a Workout Buddy
Sign up with a friend to help hold you accountable.
So how is that possible of for me when I workout at home? I lead and participate in virtual accountability groups, where we are all like minded people doing homeworkouts helping each other and motivating/supporting each other.
