Why You Shouldn't Feel Guilty After Skipping A Workout

Why You Shouldn't Feel Guilty After Skipping A Workout

Do you sometimes feel guilty after skipping a workout?When I started my fitness journey 4 years ago, I used to feel guilty all the time whenever I missed a workout. I used to think that it wasn’t okay. The problem was my mindset.  Like a muscle, I needed to train it. This was harder than anything I've ever done in my life. 

I don’t let myself feel guilty anymore. If I decide to forego a workout, I don’t think of it as a bad thing. The phrases skipping or giving up have such a negative connotations to them. It’s not like you're completely giving up on eating healthy forever, anyway. When circumstances lead to skipping a workout, I accept it. This was my decision. My body wasn’t feeling it at the time. Listen to your body.
