I want to tackle one of the main problems we all have to face on our fitness and health journeys – motivation *shudders*. I’m a very determined person but still sometimes struggle to keep going at times. I have finally found the thing that always succeeds in getting me up off the sofa though…thankfully!
It’s so simple but it works! When I’m feeling like I might just skip a workout and get back on it tomorrow I remember why I started in the first place and before I know it I’m in my workout gear ready to go.
We all have different reasons for working out and eating healthy. Whether it’s wanting to drop some body fat, have a healthier lifestyle or to get fitter; whatever your reason is, make sure that you never forget it. This is your main motivation. Perhaps even pin messages or images on your fridge or around your house so whenever you feel like skipping workouts or even giving up completely you’ll be inspired to keep going.
Be the best version of you that you can be. This is my personal goal and I’m working really hard to get my body looking and feeling as amazing as I want it to. I’m doing this to be healthy on the inside and out.
Most of all remember it will take time. Too many people start a new workout regime or ‘diet’ (I hate that word!!!) and give up after a week or a month because they don’t see changes fast enough. Nothing worth having ever came easy. It’s going to take some time, but think of how great you will feel when you finally achieve your goal.
Don’t give up. Keep going. Set yourself small goals every couple of months and work hard towards them – it will make it feel much more achievable than thinking that you have a huge goal to achieve in one go.
We can all achieve our goals, so train hard and eat healthy, and no matter how long it takes YOU WILL GET THERE. But most importantly, remember why you started.
