Stay Motivated – Stick To Your Workout Routine This Summer

Are you guilty of the Summer Slump?  I know you have been waiting months for the weather to get warm and beautiful outside so that you could get back into your regular workout routine.  Running outside, no more being worried about being cold and freezing when you step out of the car, enjoying the fresh air!

It’s great, right?

So great that you are outside gardening, swimming, playing with the kids, getting all those errands done, driving around with the windows down, getting the kids to summer camps, making meals with new fresh ingredients…so you are searching on Pinterest, cleaning the windows, cleaning out the car, oh the list goes on and on.

But where is the working out that you were looking forward to doing?

Yes, gardening, cutting the grass, and walking outdoors are all fabulous, but they don’t give you the cardio and strength training that you need!

I cut the grass last weekend and planted a TON of flowers, so I know you are sitting there going I worked my BUM off last weekend, that HAS to count as a workout!  And, yes, it is some burning calories, but you aren’t getting it all in.  You need the cardio, the heart-pumping aerobics, the repetition of the weights, you need to stick to your workout routine.

Staying motivated to exercise

Your routine is your routine.  I love to Run and go to Jazzercise.  Jazzercise totally compliments my running by giving me a full body workout and helping me build stamina for my long distance runs.  My next half marathon is coming up in February 2016 ๐Ÿ™‚

Find the routine that you enjoy, that you will do, that you will CONTINUE to do.  That’s what will make it a routine.

Trust me, you will feel better for it.  Stick to your workout routine, avoid that Summer Slump, and enjoy that Summer Body you worked for ๐Ÿ™‚

If you want to check out Jazzercise, there are LOTS of locations that have babysitting that they offer for a small fee (some locations have it for FREE!) during certain classes, so don’t let the fact that the kids are home this summer stop you from going to classes or checking them out for the 1st time.

  1. Great pics. I NEED to stay in good shape (and get in great shape) this summer as the heat and humidity makes it difficult for me to move around. Can’t go out in the sun though love going on walks.

  2. I LOVE the shoes!! I need to exercise more & get new shoes! It is hard for me being disabled, but I have been trying to walk more. The heat is here is not helping either!!

  3. When I canโ€™t be bothered I usually just go and put on my workout stuff anyway. You feel guilty pretty quickly if you change out of workout stuff without actually working out!

  4. The sad thing is I love my workouts and my best friend is a trainer and I still struggle! I keep working on it though!

  5. Great Motivation. I’ve started walking 5 miles 3 days a week, yoga 2 days a week and arm weight training 2 days a week.

  6. Staying motivated at any time of the year is difficult but we are far more likely to con ourselves into believing we’ve ‘exercised our butts’ off as you rightly say during the summer months. It is too easy to think that the gardening we’ve just done is as beneficial to our bodies and calorie loss than the running we could have been doing

  7. I used to go to Jazzercise while I was in college. I didn’t know that it still exists. Thanks so much for posting this!

  8. This sounds like a fun way for me to get my exercise. I will be checking this out soon. Thank you so much for sharng

  9. I know it’s easy to get in the “summer slump” especially when it gets really hot outside and you don’t really want to be exercising in the heat; I usually try to do a little bit of exercise early in the morning when it’s not so hot out yet. Thanks for the tips!

  10. Staying motivated during the summer months is definitely a challenge for me. I need to stick to a routine but I find there are so many interruptions with vacations and visitors that it throws me off. I am looking forward to getting back to exercising this fall.
