Staying Motivated to Workout

6:39:00 AM


HOW TO STAY MOTIVATED 

1. New Workout Clothes - I have said this before, but a new outfit for the gym always makes me feel better about going to workout. You don't have to go all out and buy a whole new outfit, but a couple of new pieces will get you back in the mood to get in shape.

2. Try New Classes or Gym - Not everyone enjoys the same style of workout. So, just because something works for someone, it might not work for you and that is okay! I know that I am not the type to go to a gym by myself and lift weights for hours, so I choose class settings. I have done Pilates for years now, but I am trying out a couple of different workouts right now. I am currently trying Curves for a month to see how I like it. Right now, I am LOVING it! But, I will also being testing out Orange Theory, which I have heard great things about. I am looking for the right fit and something that I will actually stick with!

3. Healthier Lifestyle - This is one of my biggest motivations right now. I sit for the majority of the day at work, so I feel really lazy after a long day. I am trying to make it a point to eat better, take a walk during the day and drink more water.

4. Self Confidence - I don't know about you, but after a workout I feel like I can take on the world. I feel better about my body and the way I look (after workout glow 😂). I am not trying to loose weight or anything, just trying to feel better about me!

5. Workout Partner - A workout partner or someone who can help motivate you to get your butt in the gym is always a good idea. I wish my husband and I were on the same work schedule otherwise, I would make him workout with me.

  7. I'm all about an excuse to buy new cute gym clothes lol. But on the real, doing different fun classes helps motivate me. I don't do the workout partner bit because I find that could backfire on me (i.e. using the excuse of my partner not going as a reason to flake off of working out)
