One of the reasons why your workouts should be consistent is that once you stopped, even just for a week or so, it’ll take effort to drag yourself to the gym, or outside, if you’re into running. But the point is, you lose a part of your motivation when you stop. It does happen, most of the time. What more if it’s a month or more?
