Today I’m sharing how I’ve developed a healthy fitness routine in just 7 short days.
Developing a fitness routine that you love is not always easy. Let’s face it, for very few of us the desire to work out will come easy. That’s normal. I’m someone that truly does enjoy working out every day though. That doesn’t mean that I’m eager all the time or that I don’t have to force myself to do it on occasion but it is ultimately something that I enjoy.
For others, fitness + working out is the very last thing that we want to do on a daily basis.
This routine will work for both types of people.
They say that it takes 21 days to develop a habit and I agree with that for the most part, however, when you find something you love you can develop the habit quite easily.
Prepare yourself for the next day every night. If you know that you’re going to get up and workout, prepare your workout clothes the night before. If you have kids like me, make sure all of their stuff is together and ready to go the night before. Excuses are the number one reason we don’t get the things done that we need to. Eliminate the excuses ahead of time.
Daily affirmations. LISTEN, this part is so important. It may sound silly to do but when I wash my face in the morning and brush my teeth I spend a little extra time in front of the mirror telling myself positive affirmations. Tell yourself everything you love about YOU. The more you say it, the more you’ll believe. HYPE YOURSELF UP, SISTER!
Just do it! The quicker you get it done the quicker it will be over with. I remember laying on the couch dreading getting up and working out … 30 minutes went by and I was still dreading it but you know what? It could have been done in that amount of time. Stop allowing your brain to wander and just do it already.
Bonus Tip: Look for convenience. I now workout from home most days and I absolutely love everything about the program that I am doing and the convenience of being able to do it at home with little to no equipment.
That’s right, you don’t have to go out and spend a ton of money on equipment. Sound like something that interests you? I would love for you to join my next Bootcamp. Learn more here, girlfriend!
