I don’t want to ruin anyone’s Summer, but since we are already in August, it is quickly disappearing and we will soon be in Winter. I don’t know about you, but everything is more difficult in Winter. Even though Scottie is still out of work, trying to find the motivation to do stuff with him in Winter can feel impossible.
While I’m not riding right now, I still want to be trying to keep as riding fit as I can. But if I am finding this difficult now, how hard am I going to find it when it’s cold, dark and all I want to do is curl up in a blanket? Luckily for me, it sounds like Cherry Tree Training has the perfect solution for me!
Creatures of Habit
We are all creatures of habit. As much as we may not like to admit it, we typically do the same thing every week on the same days and once we are in this routine it can be really hard to change it. I’m sure we have all said it at some point that if we just did something we don’t enjoy a little bit each week, then we would keep on top of it and it wouldn’t be so bad. But since this new thing isn’t part of our usual routine, lots of us lack the discipline to keep it going and quickly fall off the bandwagon.
However, if we manage to find the motivation to stick with the new thing we are trying to do, it can quickly become part of our routine and becomes easier and easier to find the motivation to do it. So there is hope for us all!
Habits & Consistency Course
Cherry Tree Training have created a new course to help you include exercise into your regular routine. They use the idea of little on set days to try and rewire your brain to know you should be exercising and helps you to keep the habit going for the long run. Unlike some of their other courses like Core Essentials, the exercises aren’t as tricky. This is because they aren’t aiming to challenge you, they are aiming to get you into the habit of working out.
Once you are in this habit, you can then start to challenge yourself a bit more and start working towards your goals. But when you are starting out, it’s much better to take baby steps than to jump right in. As I don’t know about you, but it’s much easier to find the motivation to do something you don’t want to do if you know it is going to be fairly easy than if you are going to find it really hard. After all, if I said to do 20 star jumps and 20 sit ups or go for a 3 mile run, which one would you be more likely to do?
All Signed Up
Now since this course sounds absolutely perfect for me, I have signed up and I am looking forward to it starting towards the end of the month. Like the Core Essentials course, I will be sharing my progress with you all and I will be reviewing the course at the end.
But if you think you are ready to sign up now and join me in trying to get into some good habits.
