Welcome to 1 Minute With Naomi!
In this video, Lola and I briefly discuss how to develop consistency for exercise when you're starting out.
With that being said, watch the video here:
Many of us drop off from fitness because we don't develop any sort of consistency with our workouts. When you first start out, it is really important to build the habit of exercising EVERY DAY.
That doesn't mean you have to give it your all every single time. It means that you set out just to SHOW UP. Don't expect that you're going to be able to do your normal routine every single day.
If your body's sore due to your new workout program and using muscles you haven't used in awhile, take it easy. Just go for that walk outside or on the treadmill. Do the bare minimum… but SHOW UP. Make it a ritual that you do every day.
You don't have to exercise for an hour every day. It could only be for 15 minutes. The point is to make a firm decision & commitment that you are going to make your fitness and health a priority.
After 2-3 weeks of showing up every single day, then you can start working on taking a day off here and there.
Once a habit is built, it's easier to stay consistent with it. You'll want to show up because it's what you're used to. But until that day comes, you have to make yourself do it for a little while.
