7 Tips to Motivate Your Workout
Posted on May 29 2012 at 01:13:38 PM in Fitness
8 months ago I made a choice to incorporate diet and exercise into my routine. I
knew it had to be a lifestyle change or it would be just another yo-yo diet.
Sometimes, I find myself bored with my workouts or diets and need something
extra to put some peep in my step and to motivate myself. Here are some tips
that have been successful for me:
help motivate me and enhance my workouts. Right now, I am loving anything with
Pitbull. He gets me rocking on the elliptical!
so doing different things at the gym or joining a spin class, Zumba or a boot
camp helps with that boredom. My mom and I actually took one class of
Aquazumba. Longest hour of my life!!! I think my mom just forgave me for
dragging her to that. It was a disaster! The point is keep your workouts fresh
enjoyed working out more when I have a friend. A friend also helps me to be
accountable for getting out of bed at 4:30 AM. When it's just me, I tend to turn
the alarm off and go back to sleep.
excited to hit the gym.
the following day I will drink A LOT of water. My goal is 60 ounces of water.
Water flushes the toxins and helps with the bloat. It also helps the scale to be
there and many awesome healthy recipes from our fellow bloggers. Here is a great
blog with healthy meal plans and here
is a great blog with weekly fitness
routine of working out it's harder to get back into it. You just have to make
yourself go and it gets easier. It's kind of like house cleaning once you start
dusting it's not that bad and easy to finish.
Everybody is different
when it comes to motivation so my suggestion is to find something that works for
you. The most important thing to remember is you are making a change for the
better. If you just view it as a diet or something you have to do to accomplish
a few pounds shed then you won't be successful. Also, if you go a few weeks
without working out or eating right don't beat yourself up. We all are tempted
by an extra cookie or too tired to go to the gym. Don't let it defeat you! Once
you get back into it, it will get less and less harder to quit! Good luck! Now
I need to take my own advice and get motivated once again ;)
