This is simple things that will help you join in on the fun of exercise. It can be fun. But here are some things you need to know.
1. Take your time.
Go slow, skip stuff, fast-forward through the workouts, go for a walk instead of go for a run. Whatever you need to do, don’t be afraid to go at your pace, your speed, whatever you need. Focus on you and nobody else. And trust me, you’ll start to enjoy it.
2. You gotta be consistent.
Just like breathing or eating or brushing your teeth, it’s gotta happen often. 5-7 days a week - MWAH! Perfect. Get a calendar. Start making X’s on the days you work out. You get 20-22 X’s at the end of the month, you are killing it! That’s it, simple.
3. Add variety.
Do the pilates, do the yoga, do the weight-training, do the capoeira, do the crazy... Swing dance, whatever you wanna do! Mix it up, make it fun. The more you mix it up, the faster the results.
4. Push yourself!
This one’s a little bit scary, but don’t be afraid. Notice that you’re improving over tine. Don’t do it the same way on day 1 as you do day 60. Do more reps. Add more weight. Walk a little bit further. Whatever it is. Just make sure that over the course of time, you’re getting better.
