Have you fallen off the fitness horse? Are you turning to those high processed carbs, the ones you swore off this year, for comfort? Do you feel angry and disappointed in yourself for not living up to your fitness goals?
Don’t. Falling off the wagon happens to the best of us. In fact, a lapse in your fitness resolutions is pretty much par for the course once you embark on a journey of health, wellness, and rock hard abs.
If you’ve traded your sweat sessions for sweatpants, never fear. Here’s how to bounce back from falling off the fitness wagon.
1. Look At How Far You’ve Come
Unearth old Facebook photos, journals, clothes, and/or measurements of yourself. Take a minute to truly look at how far you’ve come, and how you’ve changed for the better. Even if it’s just the change in your energy levels, any positive change is worth recognizing and for giving yourself a pat on the back. Remember the goals you’ve set for yourself in the past, and the feeling of pride and confidence you’ve experienced. Use that as fuel to keep going.
