It’s hard to get back on track with your workout on Mondays after the weekend. 
The key is to stay on track as much as possible.

1. Think about your “why”

My “why” is on my shoulder in this picture. I hear so many moms complain of feeling tired and overwhelmed. This often leads to them neglecting their health. My goal is to live my best and healthiest life at any age so that I can prevent chronic health conditions. While doing that I want to set an example for my family/friends and inspire others to do the same.

2. Create plan and schedule your workout.

If you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Think of your workout as appointments for yourself and schedule it during the time best that works best for you. 

3. Go to bed early

Rest is essential for your health. If you’re tired in the morning then you’ll be less likely to want to workout. 

4. Get dress in activewear

This has been life changing for me. If I’m home and stay in pjs then I’m more likely to move less throughout the day. However, the days that I dressed in activewear usually sets the tone for the day which makes me want to move more. It has been proven that people change their attitudes depending on how they dress. It just makes sense. Plus, not being dress is one less excuse that your brain will come up with to avoid your workout. 

5. Eat more whole nutrient dense foods

Eat more foods that are packed with minerals and vitamins. This doesn’t mean that you can have you sugary treats. But it should be limited. – When you eat unhealthy, processed, and high-sugar foods, your body doesn’t get the energy it needs. These foods make you feel tired, sluggish and unmotivated, to work out. Make sure your diet is balanced and includes lots of fruits, veggies, as well as the three macronutrients – lean protein, good carbs and good fat.
