Along with the nice weather that is coming more often, comes all those outdoor activities, BBQ’s, happy hours, and etc. Summer is meant for fun and time with friends and family. But with fun comes inconsistency.
Its really easy to get caught up with yours summer activities. With those days of fun in the sun You’ll start getting in the habit of saying “I’ll go tomorrow”, or “I’ll wake up early and go.” You worked so hard during the winter to make all those #gains, you don’t want to lose them. Now with DE South up and going we have 18+ class times that you can make a day. Do yourself the favor and continue to keep your fitness a priority. Trust me it is way easier to stay consistent, then it is to try and come back in Aug/Sept trying to catch up to where you were when you left.
Its very discouraging and sometimes we end up not sticking with it. So start this summer differently, start it with a plan of attack. Set certain dates during the week, and sign-up for them ahead of time. Think of it as an appointment because it is, an appointment to yourself. Also have a gym buddy to hold you accountable, instead of a coffee date, make a workout date. Kill two birds with one stone!
Lastly try not to go 2 whole days without coming to the gym. Now I know all of this is easier said then done, life happens but if you just take it one day at a time, you can make it work! Good Luck and Happy Almost Summer!! =]
