Turn around your lazy Sunday

Who doesn’t love a day of lounging? Sundays are a great day for relaxing and getting ready for the week ahead, but for many people it is also a day full of Netflix, extra calories and missed gym sessions.

Stay on track with your fitness routine and turn your lazy Sunday around with these tips!

1: Don’t beat yourself up: So what you ate one too many cookies, it happens, accept it and move on! Don’t use one small slip up as an excuse to throw away your health efforts for the remainder of the day. Don’t feel guilty, just hit the restart button as soon as you finish your last bite of pizza and get back on track ASAP!

2: Fake it until you make it: Just get dressed, put on your workout clothes and head to the gym. Even though your workout might not be 100 percent effort, once you get there and start going through some of the motions and movements, you’ll be glad you went! You might even find yourself picking up the pace in your sets and doing an extra rep or two.

3: Pick a chore: Still not sold on hitting the gym? That’s fine, use this day to pick an active chore, like cleaning your entire apartment, folding laundry or scrubbing down your shower.  You can burn up to 300 calories an hour vigorously cleaning your place. Play some good music to keep you motivated and moving at a good pace!
