How to get back into your exercise routine
Have you had a full-on festive period? or just got back from holidays? Don’t know about you, but I ate way more than I should have. And let me tell you this, once I realized I was way over my usual diet I made a decision.
I said to myself: “That’s it, I’ve crossed the line”.
Well. There is an old saying that says: “If you already have your feet on shit you better spread them” – meaning: If I have already screwed my diet I shall as well enjoy it.
And I did.
Now with all the fuzz of the holidays gone I am left with a couple of kilos more, funny fact is that I spend the last year’s semester trying to loose all of them. And let me tell you I’ve struggled.
I was good, I had a great time during the holidays, enjoyed all the moments that I had with no restriction, I get to say that I had my favorite festive meal: potato salad with chicken.
How to get back to your healthy diet?
If this is the moment that you are waiting for a miraculous how-to-recipe, sorry to disappoint you but I don’t have one.
What I am doing is a detox kinda feel into it, as many people do it, I just stood back into what I used to eat. Keeping the amount of food/calories back into how I used to have it before I went crazy over the holidays.
But I’ve included watermelon. For me, it’s a great source of sugar and keeps me satisfied for a long time after a light meal.
My goal with my ‘diet’ is to eat healthily and guarantee that I have enough energy to go on with my exercise routine without gaining weight. I am not a fitness fanatic, but I do want to have that amazing body.
How exercise changes your life, again and again.
Don’t get me wrong I do like to exercise, run, ride, swim all of this. But I am just the kind of person that likes to do for the fun of it and doesn’t have the discipline to commit to it. I guess I had on the back of my mind a secret desire to commit, but I just couldn’t.
It’s been 2 years that I have been “forcing” myself to get more and more exercise into my life. I am sure any other person would be an athlete by now. In my case, I am only a child of a wealthy family and I have a day job.
Which means that my fitness lifestyle is important to me, but I need to get into what I can achieve with my schedule etc.
What brings me to my laziness thought, every time I miss a training I get upset at first, but suddenly I get cozy with it. After all, when you are in the middle of if have you never wished you could just stop it there?
What is even stronger then that feeling is the one you get once you completed your exercise. Nothing feels better than the feeling of mission accomplished after a completion of another set of exercise.
Don’t give up on your next training keep it up. it’s all a mental battle. You can do this.
We can do this, together!
