3 Reasons You May Be Having Trouble Getting Into a Workout Routine
You don’t like the exercise you chose.
People often think that exercise has to be something that doesn’t feel good or fun to do. This isn’t true! If you are hating every minute of working out – you have not found the right exercise for you! Keep trying different things until you find something you don’t hate…and maybe you could start to like it!
🥵You aren’t ok with being uncomfortable.
There is a difference between pain and discomfort. While working out should not be completely painful, it shouldn’t be completely comfortable – that is not the point. The point is to add a little stress to your body to make it work a little harder to get you stronger or leaner. Get ok with the idea of being a little uncomfortable and your attitude toward exercise may change!
You didn’t commit to making it a habit with a solid plan
If you are really interested in making a routine for yourself – it’s time to go at it with a solid plan. Think about it – you make a plan for anything you really care about and exercise is no different. You need a plan!
