What To Do When You Miss Your Workouts

 

What To Do When You Miss Your Workouts

Even with the best intentions, people rarely follow their workout plans to a T. Life happens and we cannot always stick to our plans. In order to stay committed to your healthy lifestyle you have to accept this reality and not allow it to put you off your goals.

First Forgive
It happens. Don’t be too hard on yourself when you miss a workout. When you are focused on improving your lifestyle and your body, it is also important to be kind to yourself. Forgive yourself for lazing it out on the couch instead of sweating in the gym. Accept, forgive, and move on.

Don’t Push Yourself Too Hard
If you are trying to suddenly work in two sessions a day because you missed a few workouts, you might do more damage than good. Overworking your body might lead to unwanted injuries and sickness. If you are trying to squeeze in too many workouts, your body won’t have enough time to recover.

Keep The Bigger Picture In Mind
Sometimes we are much too hard on ourselves when missing a workout. When you are feeling less than productive, try to keep the bigger picture in mind. A few days without sweating won’t stop you from reaching your goal in the long run. Stay focused and re-evaluate your goals in order to stay on track.

Keep At It
If you are following certain fitness routines that require specific exercises on specific days, don’t try to scramble them around. Calculate the day you missed as a ‘rest day’ but then move your next training session as well. Have an extra day of rest rather than a day or two of over-training. The rest days in these routines are scheduled after certain days of intensity, so don’t try to manipulate them to suit your schedule.

Stay Moderately Active
If you are scared of losing your ‘fitness’ on these missed days, try to incorporate some light exercise. If you are missing your workouts because of appointments or responsibilities at home, add some sweat to your daily routine. Take a walk, or do some squats while helping the kids with their homework.

Time Frame
Your workout adjustment will differ according to the amount of days that you’ve missed. If you’ve been missing more than a few weeks’ exercises, you might want to readjust your routine and include some extra sessions, but a day or two won’t hurt your fitness as much as your mind is telling you.

A note from our CEO about COVID-19x

The coronavirus has changed life, as we knew it, forever. Most people will be touched in some way by the pandemic either physically, emotionally or financially. We’ve all heard heart-breaking stories from around the world about lives that have been lost and severe financial hardships caused by the sudden shutdown of so many businesses.

On behalf of all our team members around the globe, we extend our deepest sympathies to all that are struggling through personal challenges, whatever they may be, and we offer our sincerest gratitude to all the heroes who are helping those in need.

We’d also like to add how important it is for everyone to continue to do their part to slow the spread. Physical distancing is critical, and we must all take this seriously. We use the word “physical” because staying away from people in a physical way does not mean we should be neglecting the importance of social interactions, compassion and patience.

We are one of the largest providers of shelf-stable seafood and it is our honor and our responsibility to do our part, in every way we can, to help to keep people fed with affordable, nutritious protein. To that end, we’re continuing to run our factories in the US and Canada while our partners around the world continue to provide supply.

We take great pride in being a “people-first” company, so our decision to continue operations is done with utmost concern for the people making it possible. We’ve enhanced our safety measures to meet or exceed CDC guidelines and we have increased wages in our factories to assist employees dealing with the incremental costs of working and new, unexpected demands on their households.

We also take great pride in producing healthy, nutritious and safe products for our customers. Please know the manufacturing practices we follow year-round protect our both employees and the products they produce. Our facilities have very few people-to-product interactions, all products are sterilized in a high temperature oven and then packaged in highly automated production lines.

Beyond Bumble Bee, we’re continually looking for ways to extend our “people first” approach to make a meaningful impact. With so many people in need, we know this effort is more important than ever. We’re starting by donating more than $1 million in product to food banks in both the US and in Canada. And we will be looking for more opportunities to make a positive difference in the days to come.

Finally, I want to thank you, our loyal and new customers, for your support. We hope you find the recipes on our website helpful and easy to prepare. I also want to send a sincere thank you to our Bumble Bee Team and our valued supply partners around the world for their tireless efforts, particularly those working in sales, manufacturing, distribution and all our support roles, ensuring we can keep store and pantry shelves stocked.

Please continue to do your part to keep yourselves and your families safe during this truly unprecedented time.

With Gratitude,
Jan
CEO, Bumble Bee Seafoods
