Keep Up With Your Regular Fitness Routine

Don't Let a Few Days of Missed Workouts Turn Into a Habit

You meant to exercise this week but Monday you went shopping, Tuesday you baked cookies, Wednesday you wrapped presents, Thursday you went to your office holiday party, Friday you decorated a gingerbread house with your nieces, and over the weekend, you were too pooped to work out. Sometimes life — especially this busy time of year — doesn't allow for a trip to the gym. While it can definitely be beneficial to give your body and mind a little rest, you've got to be careful not to let your little break turn into a habit. If you've noticed that it's been longer than two weeks since you slipped on your sneaks and sports bra, then make a pact with yourself and pick a day to work out ASAP. The longer you wait, the harder it will be to get back into your regular exercise routine. Remember, a short workout, if that is all you can squeeze in is better than no workout at all. Here's a 30-minute celeb trainer created for FitSugar readers; print it out and take it to the gym. Just get moving!
