I go to the gym 3 -4 times a week. What I’ve noticed is that once I get into the rhythm of going, it’s easy to maintain. But miss a few days (Or, as when I’m traveling, a few weeks!) and it’s really hard to get back on the horse.
Worse, not only do you slack on exercise, but you start to slack on your diet, too. Especially on business trips. Combine lack of exercise with too many calories, and pretty soon you’re sliding into bad shape fast.
So, remember that spring is here. The pool is opening over Memorial Day weekend. And I don’t know about you, but I want to live a long healthy life and enjoy bouncing my GREAT-grandkids on my knees!
So, all of you out there, what are your ways of motivating yourself to stick with diet and exercise? And do they work?
