back to the gym!

I've recently started back at my local gym and so far it has been hard. Some people who know me will look at me and say "why are you joining the gym? you're skinny!", well I think that I'm not near as slim and toned as I would like to be and that's why I have joined. I have always wanted to get fitter, but I just couldn't motivate myself. When I worked myself up to go to the gym most recently (on my own) I didn't know what I was doing. I think we can all agree that the gym is a scary place - all these strong girls with their abs, and the buff guys lifting weights. Gaining confidence in the gym has been one of the best things I have done so far this month. Here are some tips if you are thinking about joining the gym again or if its your first time:
01. Start small. kick ass. increase. repeat: Starting small makes sticking with it more likely and will provide small wins that build confidence. It takes less than you think to challenge your body and start inspiring changes. 
02. Set a schedule and stick to it: Calendar apps on your phone are your friends. Schedule your workouts like they are important meetings at work that you w0uld never miss. Write it down, pick a time and don't cancel on yourself. You are someone who follows through. Don't let yourself down.
03. Start your day with a win: A new morning is the perfect time for a fresh start and what better way to start it than like a winner. Have a badass morning routine and you will set the tone for a productive, positive day. 
04. Give it 72 hours: If you are still dealing with cravings of sugar in your system and that will go away in 72 hours for most people, as will bloating. So next time you have one of those weekends and you are ready to get back on track, you are in it for 72 hours before judging yourself.
05. Eating healthy and working out is simple: Don't over-complicate it to the point it consumes you. The people who figure out how to enjoy it and make it an abundant and replenishing part of their lives are the real winners.
