The journey to achieve your health and wellness goals is filled with mixed emotions, but think of how amazing it feels when you feel confident in your body or totally crush a workout. Kind of awesome, right? Of course, nothing good comes easy, and the road is often laden with challenges for you to overcome. You can overcome them, and that’s what will get you closer to your goals!
So, let’s make sure you don’t let excuses get in the way of your workouts! Here are a few ways to get back on track with your goals!
I have my period and I literally can’t do anything except yell at people and eat carbs.
Girl, we feel you. But, did you know that exercise actually helps to reduce PMS symptoms and cravings? Do a HIIT workout or even go for a walk, and your hormones will thank you. Plus, the new U by Kotex® FITNESS*line of pads, liners, and tampons will keep up with whatever workout you decide to do. (Psst…you can also get a free sample!)
I don’t have time to work out.
Do you have time to watch 3 episodes in a row of Gilmore Girls? Then you probably have time to work out. If you’re especially tired after school, work or life in general, make an effort to wake up earlier and get your workout done. Even if you aren’t a morning person, a morning workout can be just the thing to wake you up and get your day started! You can even do a bodyweight workout in front of your TV so you don’t have to stop your Netflix binge.
I need a bigger support group to encourage me to eat clean or go to the gym.
Having a good support system is crucial to your success, so you will want to surround yourself with people who want you to succeed! There are people who are like-minded, and finding your #girlsquad that you can work out with, get acai bowls with, and keep accountable is part of the fun! Plus, if you need some extra motivation, check out the U by Kotex® FITNESS* Playbook for some workouts, recipes and tips to get you going!
I had an embarrassing experience at the gym and EVERYONE saw.
