No matter how dedicated you are to the gym, everyone falls of the fitness wagon every now and then. Whether you were away on holidays, you’ve been crazy busy at work, or you’ve just lost your daily motivation it happens to the best of us. But instead of letting your rut get the most of you, you need to get focused and jump back on the wagon. The best part is, it’s not that hard to do. Follow these simple steps and you’ll get your gym groove back in no time.
Write Down Your Goals:
Whether you’ve been avoiding the gym for months or days, the best way to get back into the swing of things is by writing down your fitness goals. What would you like to see yourself achieve over the next few gym sessions — go more than three times a week? Or maybe you want to be able to run a faster mile. The best part about writing down your goals is it holds you accountable and you’ll feel more motivated to get to the gym more often.
Plan Your Meals:
Another great way to get back into the swing of things is by eating healthier. Because when you eat better, you feel more inclined to exercise. You can take control of your eating habits by planning what you want to eat ahead of time, and by writing what you ate for the day in a journal. This will keep you on top of what your putting into your body and how your body reacts to each meal. This will help you determine what foods you should keep eating and what foods you should avoid.
Treat Yourself to New Gym Clothes:
When you’re in a fitness rut, sometimes the easiest way to get inspired to go to the gym is with a new outfit… aka new gym clothes! This will just give you something fun to look forward to wearing. Even if it’s simply a new sports bra or a pair of shorts, the change of scenery will help motivate you.
