We are still in January and most of us are still trying to keep to that Resolution we started 25 days ago. But, by now many of us are wavering on "do I really need to do that", "is this realistic", "I don't know if I really want to change", or whatever you are telling yourself to accept defeat with dignity. As I mentioned in a previous post, I think most New Year Resolutions are lofty and unrealistic. There you go, I just let you off the hook! But... yes, there is a but, if you really want to make a change, stick with it and definitely don't start your week without trying to make a stride in the right direction.
I like to talk about fitness, so I am going to give you some good reasons not to miss a Monday workout. I am no beach body, but I like to workout. Mondays are the absolute hardest for me though. I keep my workouts M-F, and sometimes I will sub in a Saturday, but when Monday rolls around, I would rather be anywhere than working out. A weekend of relaxing can be really hard to get over. But once I am done with that Monday workout, the rest of the workouts through the week are a breeze.
If you do the 9-5, chances are you are going back to a pile of who knows what and dealing with God knows what on Monday. Simply put, a workout will help you stay out of jail on Slap a Co-worker Monday. You spend a weekend unwinding only to be wound up tight and fast on Monday- a workout will help you release the stress.
Another great reason to never miss your Monday workout is that "getting it in" will set the tone for the rest of the week. Ever hear that saying "tomorrow never happens"? Yes, it applies here too. Just get it in, get it done. It doesn't have to be your best, but your best will surely happen later in the week because you set the precedence on Monday.
So, instead of murdering someone who is on your case before the coffee sets in, murder your Monday workout instead. Save a co-worker and ride a bike:)
I will be blasting my arms and doing some resistance cardio today - what workout are you doing today?
