Exercise Relapse- When Missing One Day Of Exercise Turns Into Two Months

We - ve all been there before. You miss one day of exercise which then turns into a week and then into a month. Missing one day of exercise is not the end of the world, but it is crucial to pay attention to the following day. Once you miss an entire week, you will likely spiral into exercise relapse. That one week turns into months. It is important to get a firm handle on continuously missing your exercise.

Follow these three steps to get you back on track quickly when exercise relapse is looming around the corner.

1. Excuses, Excuses

Examine your excuses such as: I don't have time, kids, job, etc. Visualize these excuses as a 4 foot cement road block. You can shrug your shoulders and say, 'well, I guess I can't get beyond this', which means abandoning your fitness goals. Or you can look for ways around these barriers. Can you get over the top? Maybe there is a way around the side? In other words counter these excuses with a solid plan to get back on track. Sit down and look at your schedule. Find 20 minute increments for your exercise and schedule it.

2. Remind Yourself of the Benefits

You started exercising for a reason - what were they? Weight management, better mood, more energy, improved health? There are so many benefits; keep reminding yourself how much better you feel when you are active.

3. Don't Get Bored!

Often times we fall out of practice because we are bored with our exercise regime. Change it up! Think outside the box. Exercise comes in all kinds of ways to get in some movement. Remember, doing something is better than doing nothing at all.

If all else fails turn on your favorite music and dance in your living room. If you are single - no one will see you. If you have a family, have them join in. Your kids will love it and you'll get in a good work out. No matter what, just keep some movement every day.
