But let's not lose sight of 3 things that WON'T change, and are well worth paying attention to:
Self-Care is Non-Negotiable:
Many of us burn out taking care of everyone else, while forgetting about ourselves. Remember, you can't pour from an empty cup.
Think about what is said when you board an airplane: Put your oxygen mask on first. Help yourself so that you can be the best version of you to help others.
The "Other" 165:
If you workout 3 hours per week, your results are still largely going to be dictated by the "Other 165" hours in the week.
Factors like sleep, stress, hydration, and nutrition have a lot more to do with how your clothes fit than you think... those TRX rows that you did in your last training session aren’t the only thing to focus on.
Don’t get me wrong…. YES, it's important to get your workouts in. But it's even more important to be accountable to what happens during the "Other 165." If you need accountability and support doing so, then find it.
The Simpler The Better:
When it comes to exercise, the basics are always best. Expensive, elaborate equipment and machines that nobody really knows how to use are not only unnecessary, they take away from the desired outcome.
Don’t use lack of access to “fancy schmancy” fitness equipment be a reason you can’t workout consistently.
Become the best at the basics and the rest will take care of itself.
It's pretty simple. Take care of yourself, pay attention to what happens during the 165 hours a week when you're NOT in the gym, and KISS (Keep It Simple, Stupid).
What's one thing you've learned or one practice you've adopted during the pandemic that will stay with you after it's over? Shoot me a reply, I'd love to hear about it.
