How to get back on track

Hey there lovelies,
We all do it. We all fall of track, whether it’s for a few days, a few weeks or even a few months. It happens. But how does one get back on track? I wanted to share three tips with you, that I think are really important if you are trying to get back on track again.


The first tip is to make a plan. You can write this down on paper, make a note on your phone or just plan it in your mind. (I’m the notes on the phone kinda person). Make a weekly plan, in which you plan when you will workout, what you will do, and for how long. You should also plan what you will eat (roughly, don’t go to crazy!) I also think it’s really important to make a plan you will enjoy. You will be more likely to stick to it if you don’t hate it. If you don’t like broccoli, your plan should not include adding broccoli to ever lunch. Likewise, if you hate cardio don’t plan three sessions a week. Maybe plan one cardio session, but two HIIT circuit routines too.
Basically, make a plan that sounds fun to you! This will hopefully start getting your motivation back to where you would like to have it.


My next tip for you is not to get frustrated. After having fallen off track for a few days or weeks or however long you have been enjoying those pizza and Netflix days in bed, you will be weaker. You will not be able to run as fast, or as long. You won’t be able to lift as heavy as you did before. AND THAT IS OKAY! It is completely normal that you will be weaker/slower/more out of breath after having been off track for a while, but that should not stop you from getting back on it! Do your thing and try to ignore the numbers, whether they are the weights, distances or speeds. You will be back at your normal strength faster than you believe. Don’t give up!


My final tip for you is not to be so hard on yourself. It is not the end of the world if you fall off track for a bit. I actually think it’s really important to do so once in a while and I try to not beat myself up about it. Maybe you just aren’t ready to get back on track again. Your body might just need a few more days of unnecessary carbs and lying in bed, so don’t be so hard on yourself. You will get back on track as soon as your mind and body are ready – and then you should make a plan ;)

I hope these tips are useful for some of you; I personally really try to stick to them every time I fall of track. (Which happens more often than you would think)

Let me know what YOUR best tips are for getting back on track!
Hope you all have a wonderful day,
