Guys! Confession: I’ve been totally slacking from a fitness perspective – after working through and fighting the urge to rest with prolonged chronic back pain (almost 4-months) – my routine has been completely shot, because I all of a sudden haven’t been resisting the urge to rest as much! #FailedRoutine
I’ve been slowly working through the back, getting back my strength and working to be back to the place I want to be with my routine. I’ve also been itching to get running again, I’ve actually been dreaming about running – but I’m an outside runner and the winter doesn’t really jive well with that. But, enough with the excuses – time for plans on how to get back into the groove for 2019, for real this time!
First things first, stop making excuses. I haven’t been getting up out of bed for my early morning workouts, and I easily bow out of the evenings blaming the commute or being tired. It’s time to start waking up and working out!
Seriously, cut those damn carbs. Again, lazy is easy and carbs are a lazy way to eat. Better planning for meals and proactively cutting out those carbs will help balance the inconsistent workout routine.
Establish a running routine. As I mentioned in my 2019 fitness goals and above, I want to incorporate running as a more prominent staple into my fitness routine this year. We are already signed up for a race in April, but I want to sign up for half marathon… or two *grins* this way I’ll have a training schedule to help me stick to this goal.
Are you struggling with your fitness goals? How do you overcome them?
