Step 1️⃣: Realize that there’s no such thing as a “perfect” workout.
Step 2️⃣: Put on your workout clothes the minute you roll out of bed (or don’t and workout in pajamas - yes, I’ve done it!).
Step 3️⃣: Press play on your workout.
Step 4️⃣: Pause, rewind, play, repeat as needed.
Step 5️⃣: Pat yourself on the back for getting it done!
I used to obsess about getting in the “perfect” workout. If I didn’t feel I was able to do the workout perfectly, then I found myself eventually giving up and quitting on my routine. Then came along kids and I realized I would NEVER have consistently “perfect” workouts. That’s when I redefined what a “perfect” workout looks like. I discovered that I was using the “perfect” workout as an EXCUSE to quit my workout. Crazy how the mind works!
My new definition of the “perfect” workout is:
✅ Show up
✅ Press play
✅ Get it done no matter what it looks like!
I know I’ll have days when the kids are being stage 5 clingers, or when I’m feeling tired and don’t give it my all, or when I have an early work meeting and have to cut it short; none of that matters as longs I’m being consistent in showing up, sticking with it, and taking it one day at a time.
In the meantime, try out some of these moves. But, sorry, you'll have to find your own clingy kid to do them exactly like me!
