Because why wouldn’t I tell myself that? First of all, I typically end up working out five to six. BUT I shoot for seven.
Set ‘rest days’ don’t work for me. I hear people say this alllllll the time: “Sunday is my day to relax & rest.” I mean, it’s fine, if that works for you.
But it doesn’t for me.
Why, why, why? Things come up. Maybe your set ‘rest day’ is every Tuesday & you really have every intention of working out every single day other than Tuesday’s. But what happens when you “accidentally” sleep in? Or a friend/work/dog/cat needs you ASAP? Or maybe your BF [ who most likely does not know how to multi-task, because let’s face it: what man does…? ] needs help cooking dinner? Yahhh, plans change- life happens. And sometimes it ends up affecting your weekly fitness sch.
So my advice is this: intend to workout everyday. If you’re dead tired on Saturday, then skip it.
Pssshhhh, no bigs. You have four/five/six other days to make up for it.
So. There you have it.
If shit changes, I’m not hard on myself. And if I do sweat seven days, then ta-da, I’m a star.
Intend to sweat daily & bust ass seven days a week. It’s truly a win/win for your health, bod, & lifestyle.
