For those who follow personal trainers, coaches, athletes etc in the fitness industry, it’s important to know that behind the facade of social media and their perfect lifestyle and filtered pictures, they are regular human beings who likely have ups and downs, days they can’t be bothered or off days just like anyone else.
Of course it’s rare we read about it as let’s face it, and speaking as a trainer, coach and athlete we’re here to motivate and inspire others, and who wants to read anything that’s de-motivating eh?
I’ll honestly admit, there are times (not often) when I’m just not in the mood, can’t be bothered and need a kick up the arse!
The other week on a Saturday evening I had my usual off track meal of whatever I want and a beer, but then on Sunday ended up eating more than planned.
You see Sunday was a day I just couldn’t be bothered (total contrast to the previous weekend when we had a great one)
It was raining most of the day, my Mrs and our little man were a bit run down with colds. Just one of those days. Although I didn’t binge, I ended up having more cake in the evening and a beer too of course.
Overall though it wasn’t a completely wasted day.
We went out for a walk when the weather cleared up a bit and got a job done on the gym that I hadn’t got round to for months.
Getting to the point of the post. It’s okay to have the odd lazy or off day, we’re all human.
The main thing is not to let it become a regular bad habit and to focus on good habits and routines (for those who haven’t read it yet check out my post in February), that in the long run will help you achieve your goals.
