Getting back into a fitness routine

Once upon I had a regular workout routine, honestly, I really did! I have been HORRIBLE lately with working out for two weeks, then being lazy for two weeks; working out for another two weeks, then being lazy for a week after that. It's been a binge working out cycle that I haven't been able to get out of. It really isn't benefiting my body or mind at all and I needed to change that.

Luckily, I have been! I have gotten back to the gym and worked out at least 3 times a week. As silly as it might sound, I can already feel myself getting stronger and I am eating way more. Anytime I can eat more delicious food, I'm a happy women!

Here are a few things that have kept me on track:

1) Being prepared first thing in the morning - Let me tell you, I am not a morning person. My fiancé has had to practically drag me out of bed some mornings. But lately, I've made an effort to get out of bed earlier than usual and made sure all my workout clothes and meals for the day are packed and ready to go. I used to leave that stuff all over the house and try and workout at night, which didn't work at all. Now that I make time to exercise on my break at work, it allows me to get it done during the day and still have the night to do other things!

2) I make myself a bet - When I'm feeling lazy and not wanting to workout, I essentially bribe myself into getting it done no matter what. I allow myself have that piece of pumpkin pie sitting on the counter, or buying that nail polish I've been wanting for a while. Whatever I want, as long as I workout first. It sounds like a kiddish way to do it, but it works. Then once it becomes a habit, I won't have to do that as much anymore.

3) Tell somebody about your plans - If you tell someone else that you are planning on working out a certain day, it holds you more accountable then just counting on yourself. That person can be there to remind you and make sure you follow through with your plan. You can never have enough support!

All in all, I'm excited that I'm finally getting a good grip on making exercise a regular occurrence in my routine instead of life getting the best of me.  It's also helped that my soccer season is under way again, I'm ready to kick some serious butt!

Just remember, we all get into ruts sometimes, but keep trying and you'll find a routine that works for you!

    If you exercise without dieting, you will get bigger appetite, which
    will lead to increase of weight, or muscle grow
    underneath the fat layer, and make you bulkier. If you diet without
