Look let's be real...getting and then staying in shape is not always easy like a Monday morning.
Life can throw spanners in the works and getting started or back on the horse is tricky.
Truth be told from about Wednesday onwards last week my nutrition was a disgrace.
16 Hour working days with an average of 10 on the gym floor, PT Course sales calls and assessments alongside unexpected bills meant work wise it was a tough enough week. I then got injured at Football on Thursday which sapped all motivation and means I haven't trained since Thursday and have spent 85% of the weekend gouging any junk food in site. Inclusive of a chippy, subway, percy pigs and BBQ Wotsits (would highly recommend).
I'm sure a few of you have been in this position before. It's really overwhelming thinking about all you need to do to get back on it so I thought I'd share my method.
'The 3 for 3'.
Pick 3 areas and then pick 3 quick and easy tasks in each to allow you to 'win'. Mine are:
Strong and Free mindset:
-List 10 things I'm grateful for.
-Make a to do list in order of priority.
-10 Rounds of box breathing twice per day (email if you'd like to know more).
-Go my weekly shop with a pre planned list.
-A glass of water first thing upon waking.
-Have a protein source at every meal.
Health and Fitness:
-Go a minimum of a 20 minute walk each day.
-Put 3 workouts in my diary.
-Do 50 press ups first thing and last thing every night (this could be subbed for squats or sit ups).
Are they pretty basic? Yes. Are these things alone going to get you in shape? Probably not. However I have already ticked of 5/6 of them and I feel in a much better place to go and attack my week.
Let me know what your 3 for 3 are. Remember I could also have picked business, relationships or hobbies as my areas.
