Lots of people find it difficult to maintain any kind of structure over Christmas which can prove distracting and your commitment to fitness can go astray. 🍩
It can be hard to get back into the flow of your workout routine, once you stop for a few weeks your body takes a break and when you try to get back into the swing of things it’s not used to the rigorous exercise, so it’s important that you realise your body isn’t going to be at the same level of fitness it was before the time off. Don’t get frustrated with yourself when you can only run for five minutes before you’re breathless. ⏰
Here are my six top tips on how to put the Christmas lull behind you and get back to eating and living healthily:
1- DONT QUIT ❌
You’ve just had break from exercise and it can feel like starting out fresh all over again with sore muscles and tired minds holding you back. For most people this is the time when they decide to quit. DON’T! Push through the barrier, the first weeks are always the hardest, but when you see the progress you’ll make month after month, it’ll make it worth the effort in the end.
2- GET A WORKOUT BUDDY 👯♀️
Training with someone else helps keep you accountable meaning your less likely to skip a session or a rep while you’re working out. It can help you to push yourself further and work out longer if you have someone else with you. The #rwlfitties community is great for this!
3- EAT RIGHT 🍎
Nutrition and exercise go hand in hand but it can be easy to fall off the wagon. Whether you've been over indulging on the chocolates or had a few too many glasses of wine, you just have to draw a line in the sand and get back to eating clean healthy food again as no matter how hard you try, you can’t out run a bad diet.
4- DRINK PLENTY OF WATER 💦
Let's face it sometimes we have drink more alcohol over Christmas then water, so it's time to switch to the hydrating h20 I'm afraid!
5- HAVE FUN 🙌🏼
