Tip of the day: We all wander off the path we want to be on whether it's our food or our exercise - Don't be afraid to reboot.
Last week I rode my bike to work all week as part of "Bike to Work" Week. It was great, I used very little gas, saved money and started everyday with a little workout. It also meant only two trips to the gym in a seven day period. While I ran, biked, walked, did some light weights and core at home, mostly I went without training my muscles.
By Sunday, when I went back, I felt sluggish getting started. But I hit it hard and vowed to reboot my weight routine this week. I did the same yesterday and I will go again today. The key is, I didn't throw away all my successes so far and coast, I rebooted and got back at it.
I have done the same thing after a day laced with sugar or fat. You just have to put that behind you and move forward. If you have been struggling, I encourage you to reboot. Not only will you get back on track, but you will feel empowered that you did it all by yourself. If you are keeping track at home - that's real self-respect.
Yours in fitness, Kate
