We get it, starting a new fitness routine is no walk in the park (unless your fitness routine includes walking in the park). The excitement and thrill to start a new healthy journey keeps you amped up and excited to get through each day of your first week. Every single one of your workouts hurt so good, you feel like a pro at meal prepping and you are genuinely excited about your new healthier life.
However, by weeks three and four, life may not feel so grand as it did in week one. You are finding excuses that you are too tired to prepare your meals ahead of time, the gym just seems to be getting more crowded by the day, and you are constantly in pain getting up and off the toilet because your leg days leave you wrecked for days.
