This Week's Ask Gilad: Overcoming Setbacks

Question: I missed a week due to work. I am so discouraged with myself that I am finding it hard to start again.  How do you get over these setbacks?

Answer: Don't forget to encourage yourself.  It is easy to overlook our small successes and not give ourselves the credit we deserve.  Congratulate yourself for all those small changes and successful steps.  And if you don't achieve your goal right away don't give in to discouragement, because of change, large or small, is never an easy process.  There are always pitfalls along the way.  If you can't follow your fitness program for a day or a week for whatever reason, don't feel guilty about it.  Let it go and start fresh the next day.  Allow yourself the benefit of being able to start again.  Do not wallow in self-criticism or harsh self-judgment...and don't let anything make you give up your goal.

    Don’t worry about a “pause” in your fitness journey. After my husband’s cancer surgery, I was exhausted and super busy with his care and appointments. I started exercising again when things became manageable. Before his illness, I drove to a class 6 days a week. Now, to save time, I work out to a variety of DVDs. At first, I was sore and not able to exercise at my previous level but now I’m back to my usual level of fitness. I’m sure you can get back too.
