Starting off the week after losing an hour (for most of us) is tough business! Even still, I hope you jumped out of bed, ready for a new week, motivated to be FIT and nutritionally fulfilled.
When you have a hard time getting out of bed in the morning, or motivating yourself to just do you workout, I want you to think about how you feel after a good workout. Do you feel as though you accomplished something, that you did something good for yourself? I hope so. Completing a good workout, a workout where you left nothing more to give is so refreshing. Yes, daunting at times, but so worth it. If you aren't to that point yet, you will be. Keep working at it.
Everyone feels like they are dragging when they first begin a workout routine/regimen. You will be amazed at how quickly your body adapts to pressures put on it. The human body can accomplish amazing things and our mental state can help propel our bodies or hinder them or keep them on a plateau. Keep your mind in a positive mental state. Sometimes that means taking your mind off the workout. Not forfeiting form, just going to a different mental state. Try it on your next workout, especially if you know you can push yourself but haven't broken through that barrier. Music, talking with friends, thinking about your summer vacation...whatever it is that helps you push harder, longer, farther.
Exercise is the best medicine to keep us in a positive mental state. So go for it today!
