Hello, you! I'm Soph - a 22 year old girl currently living in Liverpool, spending most of her time writing, taking photo's, drinking coffee & trying not to eat too much cake.

How to get yourself back into your fitness regime.



Just do it.

January is most probably the most popular time for people to try and get back into, or start new fitness programmes. And it's quite easy to understand why. Not only is it the start of a New Year and a new chapter, we've all just had Christmas. And lets face it, who doesn't over-indulge and treat themselves at Christmas?

In the last few weeks, I've read a fair few 'how to get yourself back to the gym/into fitness' posts, and I guess there was just one thought constantly going through my mind that I wanted to get down. (I also had a few DM's following this photo I posted on Instagram over the weekend asking how I motivate myself, so I thought I'd pop my thoughts on here! Although, I am by no means a fitness expert of any kind. Probably should mention that too!) No matter how much new gym kit you buy yourself, how many fitness accounts you follow on Instagram, or how much you plan which classes you're going to attend, there's only one thing that can get you back to the gym or into a new fitness routine: you.

Self-motivation, particularly in the winter months, is HARD. No one wants to leave the comfort of their beds, to haul themselves to the gym in the cold and the wet. But what you get out of it most definitely makes it all worth while.

'It comes down to one simple thing: How bad do you want it?'

I guess I just wanted to write this post to say, if you want to get yourself to the gym. Do it. I've been there quite often, convincing myself that 'I'll go tomorrow.', and quite often 'tomorrow' never comes. The times when I really get into it, it's when I've just done it. No overthinking, no telling myself I'll treat myself if I do. I've just done it. 

So, if you're currently thinking about it, just do it. And, as with anything, if you do it now, your future self will thank you for it.  I promise!

Soph

  2. You are so right! I have been saying i'll go back to the gym since the start of the year but tonight after work I am just going to do it. I even took my gym stuff with me so I just head straight there rather than going home first, that's always my mistake! Sophie x

    1. Yes! I used to make that mistake all the time too. As soon as I sit down in the evening, there's just no getting me back up again haha! So now I try to go in the morning instead - gives me all the energy! :) x

  3. This is such a great simple sweet post. So motivating too and I completely agree with everything you say for sure! I'll be going to gym tomorrow (purely because I have no time today) and I can't wait to push myself 🙌🏻🙌🏻

  6. This is a great post. I'd been meaning to get back into doing some sort of exercise for months, but cold weather and generally just feeling a bit miserable after work each day wasn't the best motivation to get out and run! So this month I finally bit the bullet and joined a gym. I'm loving it now!

    1. Oh I totally know how that feels! That's why I always try and go in the morning, then I know I've done it and I'm all ready for my day! :) I'm glad you're enjoying it now though! xx

  9. I love this! No one can go to the gym for you - you've got to do it yourself! Self-motivation is huge.
