Stay On Track This Time!

Posted by on September 30, 2013 at 3:58 pm

What went wrong?  Why did you fail last time?

Most people have great intentions and start an exercise program over and over and over again.  They decide to start working out and eat healthy and within a few months, for whatever reason, find themselves back where they started.  Something like a New Year’s resolution, summer, a wedding or a reunion sparks their interest and motivates them to try again.  They decide they will go on a diet or they will exercise every day.

Eventually, most people fail again because they are basically mimicking exactly what they did last time. 

Why do people get in the bad habit of just repeating past attempts doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result – isn’t that the definition for insanity?  The bottom line is that whatever forced you off track last time, will more than likely surface again.

you must never cancel your workouts.

pee Kegel Your Way to Better HealthNo one talks about it but it’s a problem that many women have to deal with on a day to day basis after child-birth.  Urinary incontinence, an inability to control urine flow, can be a socially embarrassing problem that can be managed.  Stress incontinence or the loss of urine when you cough, sneeze, laugh, or jump or endurance incontinence, an inability to make it to the bathroom in time is often a result of a weakening of your pelvic floor muscles.  It makes sense that if you strengthen those particular muscles, you’ll reduce the chances of having to endure regular embarrassing episodes.
