WASHINGTON – A decade ago when I lived in LA, I worked really hard to get a job as a personal trainer at Spectrum Sports Clubs. Even though I was young, the club gave me the chance to prove myself.
But on my way to my very first day of work, I got a flat tire.
What exactly does this have to do with being in great shape, you ask?
Because a flat tire is a busy day at work, a summer vacation or anything else that derails your commitment to eat better and exercise regularly.
We’ve all been there. And when we get a flat tire, we change it right away — or call someone to do just that — and get back on the road. And the same thing should be done for our workout and healthy eating routines.
Here are some ways you can get your momentum back when returning to healthy habits.
