If you find yourself a long way from your workouts, wondering how to get back on track, there is a way to make the road back a little easier.
Plan for the Future – When you know a situation is approaching that may throw you off track, it is best to prepare for the future so you can avoid starting all over again. The only real difference between successful exercisers and those who quit is that successful exercisers are adaptable.
Write it Down - Once you figure out what you need to do to get back on track quickly and completely after a slipup, write it down! If you capture what works (and what doesn't!), you will have your own little survival guide to refer to if it happens again.
Ease Into It – The biggest mistake many of us make when getting back to exercise is overdoing it. When we get off track, our first response is often to jump back in and do twice as much work to make up for what we missed. But this can lead to injury so make sure to listen to your body.
