So it’s not that I haven’t known this but it hit home and hit real for me last week. August has been a bad month for me with going to the gym. We’ve moved, I’d had multiple drills on weekends, College classes have started back up for me, and then throw my family and work into all that, and well I’ve not made it to the gym like I’ve needed to this month.
Last week I missed Monday, and it screwed me up the entire week, yes I had some other unexpected events last week, but I still contribute missing Monday to my failure. So why is this? I’ve worked out for years I’m super disciplined. But yet, it screwed my whole week of workouts.
It’s because I set myself up for failure right from the beginning. I don’t think you can underestimate the need to start something off right. That’s why I always stress getting your groceries and food prep in on the weekend, it makes your week go so much more smoothly and helps you hit your goals so much better.
Mondays I am dragging a lot, and I know we all have a tendency to drag on Mondays, but decide in your head that you’ve got to get to the gym. Make up in your mind on Sunday that no matter how tired your body, how drained after work you are, no matter how much you just want to come home Monday afternoon and Netflix and Chill, you’ve got to go to the gym. Start it off right. I learned the hard way this last week. You’ve got this.
