So I came across an idea last week inside an article about making exercise more fun.
To be honest, for one reason or another I’m enjoying my workouts more now than i had been in the past.
I still did them cause i know what happens to my body when I don’t – I get fat.
And that’s hardly a good selling point for my business or my long term health.
I guess having a bigger focus on getting outside and walking for a while helped me get back into doing more workouts each week again.
Sidenote, I’m not hiding this cause you know I’m honest about everything. I don’t hide behind a mask and just like you, I sometimes find some things hard and struggle.
But lately, my bodyweight workouts are something I don’t dread doing.
I enjoy it.
More importantly, I enjoy how I feel after it.
And it’s good to be back in that place again.
So back on point.
If you’re struggling to start getting started, believe me I get that cause I’ve been there too, despite what I do for a job.
In fact that’s probably why I found it getting old at one stage cause it was my job too and I needed a break.
But the main thing you can do to help get back on top of things is to start setting some new rules.
For me it was okay, I wasn’t working out as much (once a week) so I have to do more other exercise.
I took up walking.
And I did that 5-6 days a week for an hour or more.
I still enjoy my walks now, just adding in some workouts either instead or on top of that.
But for you have a rule that X day is a walk day.
Or whatever you decide to get happening as your new rule day.
If you have a dog, they need to be exercised – that’s your chance.
Grab the headphones, put on a podcast and go for your life.
The other rule you could implement might be a minute or two or exercise before you sit down and watch your favourite series.
Say as many squats as you can do in a minute or push ups, hovers whatever. Take your pick.
On your walk you may do some step ups or push ups on a bench.
You’ll eventually get used to that and want to do more.
Another rule might be no alcohol during the week.
Or another food based rule – like no carbs for 2/3 days (except veggies and fruits of course) then a carb hit on that next day.
Just like implementing any of these rules will work.
So pick a new rule if you are struggling.
Next thing you know you’ll be doing more and might actually enjoy it!
