I’ve always been one for a post-it note and reminders but since starting my fitness journey, this has gone to a whole other level!
Every week, I plan what days, what workouts and how much I am going to work out.
One of the things I love about the Bikini Body Guide is it tells you how much you should be doing each week throughout the programme and what type of workouts.
So, for example, i’m now on week 7 (where the hell has that time gone?!), so ideally I should be doing the following:
- 2-3 Resistence Circuits
- 4-5 LISS sessions
- 1 Rehabilitation/Stretching
I find planning these out before really motivates me to achieve as many workouts as possible. I tick them off as the week goes along which also means I can look back on my achievements at the end of the month.
I’ve been tracking my gym attendance for the last 7 months (since joining a new gym), and it’s become a bit of a competition with someone I work with.
Looking back now, it’s crazy to think I was only working out 2-3 times a week when I started and that was hard enough for me!
Now I can barely go a day without feeling the urge to get in the gym!! I’m aiming for 7-8 workouts a week and I can’t get enough! That still sounds like a lot to me but if you progress slowly, it will feel natural to aim high and push yourself as much as possible.
I believe anyone can fall in love with fitness if they work at it and find something that works for them and I am certainly one of those people!
Progress takes time and this is something I constantly remind myself. Once you start to see progress, there’s no stopping you.
Keep at it, stay motivated and you will achieve things you never thought you could!
