How to Get Back Into Working Out After You’ve Slacked Off For a While

Okay, so you’ve started a workout program or routine and you were doing so well with it for a few days and weeks. Then all of a sudden something came up, causing you to skip a day of working out and then that became two days, three days, then weeks, and maybe even months. And you know what??? THAT’S OKAY! It’s is human nature for us to fall off and lose motivation after a hiccup in our routine.

So now what? What are you going to do about it? It does no good to sit there and feel sorry for yourself. You let something get in the way of your routine and you let it continue to stop you. You’ve made little to no progress since. Take it as a lesson learned. If you truly want to get back into shape and live a healthier lifestyle, you’ve got to put a stop to the excuses and JUST DO IT. There’s a reason why you started in the first place. So get back in tune with that driving force… that force that gave you that deep desire to get back into shape. Whether it be for better health conditions, weight loss, more energy a more confident you or that hot beach body… it doesn’t matter… just do it. Make it something that you can finally cross of your to-do list for once and the consistent sacrifice that you make to just get it done will reap rewards for you later on.

While you’re getting started again with your workout routine, figure out which motivating factor was missing the last time you were on a roll with your exercises. Are you so busy that you just didn’t have time for it anymore? Were you lacking the energy to get these exercises done? I often find that the number one thing that most people are missing out of their equation is the support. Exercise + Nutrition + Support = Success! Getting that support could simply mean finding a workout buddy or a workout group that will keep you motivated.

Believe in yourself and all that you are.
Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.

If you’re not sure where to turn for that support, I’m available as a free coach if you need one-on-one accountability. Just comment below or contact me at tgifrida@gmail.com. If you think you would do better in a group setting, I also have a few online workout support groups and fitness challenge groups on Facebook. Also, you may want to consider joining an online fitness community such as Team Beachbody. Team Beachbody allows you to connect with millions of others who are also working out and the site has a ton of fitness and healthy eating resources. Check it out! But certainly, if you’re not sure where to start, don’t hesitate to contact me.

Good luck and don’t you ever, ever give up on yourself! =)
