Oh the sweet smell of pumpkin spice and brisk air is finally approaching and with it, we are all trying to fight the dreadful lack of motivation during the fall/winter months. As a student myself, I often find that the beginning of the semester completely puts my routine through a Total KnockOut. Juggling classes, work, assignments, a social life can prove to be a challenge especially when adding a fitness component. I can only imagine what it’s like for those of us who are parents!
While I can go on and on about the difficulties and setbacks of maintaining a fitness routine, I’d rather try and get us all motivated and energized to accept this challenge and overcome it. After all, abs for the summer are best made during the winter and I think all of us at BodyRoc can prove this theory right!
I know what it’s like to take a semester off from BodyRoc and the feeling of having to get back into the swing of things is never a good time. The first thing to do whenever there’s a drastic change in your routine, whether it’s college or your kids are in school, is to allow the time to adjust to this new schedule. Allow yourself this time to figure out all the logistics. As a student, I always did too much and overwhelmed myself which lead to me canceling classes and falling behind on my fitness goals. With this new approach I am able to figure out the times and days that work best for me to attend BodyRoc sessions and meal prep for the week. It also helps a great deal when I plot out these days and times on a physical calendar as reminders. For those of us who need visual tools to get us going this is a great approach to keep you motivated.
