Here it is a new month which means time to set my new monthly goals.
I found that I get bored every 4-6 weeks. For me, boredom leads to be uninterested and unmotivated physical activity.
Every month I find a new fitness challenge or goal to seek after. Staying healthy and active as we get older is key to longevity. Mixing up the routines can keep us going.
The fitness goal I tend to go for is to drop some weight. I have been able to maintain this through COVID. Of course, I have the ups and downs of that water weight fluctuations.
I reflected on my fitness numbers from the last month. On the days I did weight lift, I closed my Apple Watch circle. I burned more calories on those days than the cardio-only days.
I usually do 2-3 days a week of training and cardio daily. I decided to reverse that. I had to make a plan. For my idea to be successful, a plan was needed. I mapped out my days for nutrition, strength, and cardiovascular training.
What does your morning routine look like?
5 minutes is all that is needed to get the day started. I love doing this routine when I’m press for time. The benefit over time could lower your stress. It can help gain clarity to quickly overcome challenges for each day.
I find when I don’t take at least 5 minutes every morning I’m super cranky and not mentally prepared.
