One of the hardest things to overcome when starting an exercise program is getting into a routine. Anyone can go out and get some type of exercise once in a while, but if you want to see results you have to be consistent with your workout routine and your diet. The easiest way to stay consistent is to have a plan.
Having a plan for my diet might include making overnight oats basically every night before bed, having snacks such as nuts, hard-boiled eggs, and fruit ready to take with me wherever I go, and making sure that I plan to eat vegetables at almost every meal.
My exercise routine is inconsistent and consistent at the same time. I plan what I’m going to do the day before or at the beginning of the week. There is no set “leg day”, “arm day” or “cardio” day, but each body part is specifically trained at least twice a week. This is how it is for me because I’m juggling teaching classes in the gym and training for races during the summertime. Even if you don’t know what you’re going to do or don’t have time to make a plan on a certain day, just show up and let your imagination and past experience do the deciding for you; as long as you’re giving it your all, improvements will follow.
