August – Day 9: The Secret…

As we get farther into the month, it’s easy to fall off track and let the days slip by without getting our workout in. And as the days slip by, it’s gets easier and easier to just let them go. And once a few days go by, it’s so much harder to get started again.

The secret to avoiding that “restart” is to KEEP GOING! It’s easier to stick with our routine then it is to start again. Even if it’s just a quick workout, even if you only run a mile, even if all you can fit in is your strength, or just a plank and wall sit…KEEP GOING!

If you’ve already fallen behind, DON’T try to make up days. Trying to make up days will wear you out, make you tired and overwhelmed…make you miss MORE days.

Instead forget about what is in the past and jump back in TODAY with Day 9. Legs and Core…it’s a great workout all on it’s own!
