Making time for workout during the week is important. It makes you feel less fatigued and more energetic. Workout also improves the quality of your sleep.
However, the key to starting your fitness journey is to be relentless and consistent in reminding yourself on your personal goals. Also, finding a unique way in your journey to connect with your fitness goal is helpful when building good lifestyle habits.
Your motivation is what gets you started; habit is what keeps you going. Be proud of every step you take towards reaching your goal, don’t wait until you’ve reach your goal to be proud.
Here is how to make your weekdays workout happen;
Make a plan
The best way to make a plan for your workout is to have a written plan. Workweek can get really busy, that’s why it’s important to make a schedule in advance. On Sundays figure out the most convenient time for your workout and decide the best time for exercise in your schedule and actually enter it you’re your daily plan.
Get your gym gear ready
Now that you have a workout schedule, the next thing is to get your workout gear all set so you won’t have an excuse not to go to the gym. Do your necessary works on weekends to make sure all your gym clothes are clean and sorted out before the week starts.
Be kind to yourself
Self-compassion increases the likelihood that you’ll succeed in any given endeavor. You don’t have to beat yourself up about your body or your current fitness level. Instead of looking at your past mistakes and unhealthy choices, why not make opportunities out of them and learn to grow.
People who exercise regularly tend to do so because of the rewards it brings to their lives, such as more energy, better sleep, and a greater sense of well-being. However, these tend to be long-term rewards. When you’re starting an exercise program, it’s important to give yourself immediate rewards when you successfully complete a workout or reach a new fitness goal. Choose something you look forward to, but don’t allow yourself to do until after exercise.
Make it easy for yourself
Plan your workouts for the time of day when you’re most awake and energetic. If you’re not a morning person, for example, don’t undermine yourself by planning to exercise before work.
Keep things interesting
Choose an exercise you know you’ll love but don’t limit it yourself to the same exercise. Switch things up once in a while, get a routine and this will make it easier for you to start and maintain a workout schedule.
