No one ever said, “gosh, I wish I hadn’t done that yoga sculpt workout,” so why is it so easy to skip classes? Here’s a few reasons why we don’t think skipping your workouts is a good idea. Staying in shape and and being mentally balanced takes consistency and hard work, especially as we get older. Remember that how your body feels has a strong effect on your mental state, so pull up a chair and hear us out.
Skipping Once Makes It Too Easy To Skip Again
Not doing one workout can easily turn into not doing anything all week long. Why? Because how you start the week will set the tone for the days to follow. That’s why it’s extremely important to always get a workout in on Monday, even if it means getting up at 5:30am. Monday are busy, we get it, but trust us, making sure you do your first workout on Monday will make it easier to follow through on the rest of the workouts for the week. For our FlowLIFT yoga sculpt classes we suggest doing it three times per week on Monday, Wednesday and Friday. You can also double up on days, but if you get your workouts in towards the beginning of the week you can coast right into the weekend without a care in the world.
The Guilt From Skipping A Yoga Sculpt Workout Is Huge
It’s no secret than when you skip out on your yoga sculpt workout, you feel awful. It can ruin your day and make you feel bad about yourself for not doing what you said you would do. Do your workout so you can feel proud about following through with your commitment to your fitness goals. We say this all the time, but the hardest part about this class is just showing up and trying your best. Make the time, stick to your goal, and just do it!
Not Doing Your Workout Leads to Overeating and Making Unhealthy Food Choices
When we feel bad, we tend to overeat and make unhealthy choices. Ever hear of the term “emotional eating?” Think of it like the snowball effect. You miss a workout so you feel bad and then you eat junk food to feel better. Now you haven’t just skipped your workout, you’ve also made bad food choices, which all lead to weight gain and feeling bad. The cycle keeps repeating itself and you go nowhere fast. We’ll say it again, it’s not worth it to skip your workout.
Working Out Equals Feeling Good
Working out goes far beyond burning fat and losing weight. Exercise is essential for mental health and stress management. When we skip a workout we tend to be more reactive, less tolerant and definitely more on-edge. It’s been proven that exercise raises endorphins levels, which is why we feel so good afterwards. If you need more than the physical motivation of doing exercise, remind yourself that working up a sweat burns off stress and elevates the mood instantly.
