The weekends, or days off are a great opportunity to do things you wouldn’t do in your normal workout and eating routine, for example: Trying a local 5k/ fun run or Race. Please, do not be intimidated by the words “race”, “run”, or “5K”, a lot of people walk them… actually most people walk them. You can jog a little and walk a little. Our “See Spud Run” page has a very good beginner running program. Here’s the link: http://tatertraining.com/?page_id=241
I also recommend spending a little time in the kitchen trying a new healthy recipe or just cutting up fruits, veggies and lean proteins, to prepare for the week ahead. You will soon find satisfaction in seeing all those little containers full of “Fuel” food, and baggies with the perfect serving of nuts… like jewels in a mine, every time you open the cupboard. Your very own, fast food, right there, ready to go.
On the other hand if you’re not currently on the “Fit bandwagon”, DO NOT wait until Monday to start. Start now, today, this weekend! You’ll be able to take a little longer at gym checking out the scenery, getting that perfect treadmill or elliptical machine. You know, the one, where you can see the door, the locker room and the windows all at the same time… oh yeah, it’s also the one with sharpest image on the TV. At the weight area, go ahead and read all the descriptions on the machines. Perfect your form and do the exercises on our workout plans, take your time looking at your phone, to read Pete’s workout routines and finding where those machines are at your gym.
Go ahead, tell everyone on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter about your #fitlife #gymlove #cleaneating #newme… and never ever forget #tatertraining, maybe even take a “before” picture (don’t post it yet), you can’t imagine how motivating it is, knowing that others know. You can’t fake fitness.
That way when you go in on Monday, and the regulars are there… you too will be a “regular”. You just walk in like own the place, and go right to work. THE GYM IS NOT A SOCIAL CLUB FOR THE FIT, THE GYM IS FOR EVERYONE!
I wish you a happy, healthy weekend and encourage you to celebrate your body, by using it!
