If you’ve somehow gotten on the wrong track, there’s nothing better to do than get back on.
Have you ever had one of those times in your life when it was really hectic and you couldn’t workout or eat the way you wanted to? Maybe it got really busy at work. Maybe your child was sick for a couple of weeks. Maybe you went on a sunny holiday and couldn’t get used to a life without greasy exotic food and thrice-daily tropical drinks. Maybe you started travelling for business and just couldn’t keep the momentum going the way you usually did. Maybe you had a summer of weddings, BBQs, baby showers, and music festivals that made it difficult to stick to your plan.
We’ve all been there.
If you’ve gone off track, what can you do to get back on?
Well…just get back on track again. Sounds silly, right? It’s too simple to work, right?
There’s no better time to get back on track than now.
The main problem that most people face is that they just don’t stop and say to themselves, “Ok, I’m going to do what I need to do to get the body I want. Starting right now.”
Too many people think about all the time they’ve “wasted” not doing the right thing and they begin to feel a sense of defeat and hopelessness. Feeling defeated and hopeless is not the way to get back on track. You’re only human and you’re always going to make mistakes (sorry perfectionists!).
Accept where you are, don’t make excuses for the time you’ve lost, and just get right back in there.
Hire a coach to give you a kickstart if you need to. Don’t feel sorry for yourself and don’t think about any time you’ve lost. Learn from the experience and be better prepared the next time a challenge hits. Because another challenge to your workout routine and eating plan is just around the corner.
That’s just life. So move on. Get going.
Get back on track.
