One of the most frustrating things about working out can often be not being able to. It could be due to an injury, illness, work commitments, and any number of other problems. What often follows is a feeling of guilt. You feel guilty for not sticking to your program. You feel guilty for not sticking to your diet. You may feel guilty about letting others down who were cheering you on such as family members, your trainer, etc. And often this feeling of guilt can really consume you. You don't have the enthusiasm to start working out again. Maybe you don't want people to see you in worse shape than you were the last time they saw you.
The first thing you have to do is to LOVE YOURSELF! And I mean to love yourself exactly as you are. The next thing is to eliminate any feelings of guilt. I know that may be easier said than done. But remember that no matter what kind of a front people put on, EVERYBODY has taken a layoff at some point. Everybody has cheated on their diet and workout program at some time. You are no better OR worse than anyone else. The only thing guilt will do is poison your mind and spirit and destroy any chances of you getting in shape again. Embrace who you are and remember, YOU'RE DOING THIS FOR YOU! If you're worried about the reactions of other people, don't. They are not you and they don't know you the way you do.
Now that we've gotten that out of the way, make sure to start back slowly. Remember that the worst enemy you'll ever face is your own ego. When you first start back you may be tempted to workout exactly the same way you did before. You may even surprise yourself to see that you actually haven't lost as much strength or conditioning as you thought you did. This can be encouraging and you might push too hard too soon. Be sensible and start back slowly and within a few weeks, you may be shocked at the progress you make!
