On a Monday morning I’m rearing to go and to take on the week, Wednesday is the middle of the work week, on a Thursday I feel good for making it this far and on a Friday I can taste the weekend.
But what about a Tuesday? I find Tuesdays to be the hardest day of the week to exercise. I’m usually tired from the Manic Monday and midweek might as well be a year away.
If you feel the same about Tuesdays, my Terrific Tuesday posts will provide motivation, a reminder of why we exercise and words of wisdom to make us feel inspired and turn Tuesday from terrible to terrific.
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
I definitely found that once I was in the habit of daily exercise, it was so much easier to enjoy the workouts. For the first 21 days of getting into the habit I had to force myself to show up to the mat, but once it had become part of my morning routine, I didn’t even have to think about it anymore.
I won’t say my Sworkit workouts are an example of exercising “excellence” (have you seen my push-up attempts?!), but I am repeatedly working out. That has to count for something right Mr. Aristotle?
When exercising is a habit, all you have to think about is how good you’re going to feel afterwards.
