So You Lost Some Momentum Over Christmas? What Now?

This is just a little reminder to everyone that went off the rails a little bit over the holidays.⁣ ⁣ If you ate too much Christmas ham, choccy or put down a few too many beers over the break then you’re like the rest of us.⁣ ⁣ If you didn’t exercise as much as you’d like – welcome to the club.⁣ ⁣ It happens every year – we all tell ourselves we’re not going to eat or drink too much – that we’re going to exercise and stay on top of our fitness – but that rarely ever happens.⁣ ⁣ And that’s fine…⁣ ⁣ It’s totally normal to slacken off over the Christmas break. It’s a time to spend relaxing with family and friends, so it’s natural that your fitness may slip.⁣ ⁣ Now, ideally you exercised a little and didn’t go too far off the rails with your nutrition. But even if you did, you’ve now got a whole new year to focus on fixing that and improving on last year. ⁣ ⁣ Your fitness and your health haven’t been sabotaged just because you spent a few weeks slacking. But don’t expect to get back to the level you were at right before Christmas in one or two sessions.⁣ ⁣ What we need to do is ease our way back into a consistent training and nutrition program one step at a time. The saying - ‘How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!’ holds true here. Focus on what you can do today to push yourself a little bit closer to where you want to be.⁣ ⁣ If you gained some weight, start cleaning up that diet and get your steps in.⁣ ⁣ If you lost some strength, get under a barbell and start building it back up.⁣ ⁣ If you’ve lounging around all day, you’re probably stiff as a board, so start putting your body back through its range.⁣ ⁣ Remember to focus on small steps and be patient. The results aren’t going to come in one day, but they will come. #one22
