Who are we kidding, we all struggle to stay motivated to workout. Within seconds we can have a list of excuses to cancel a workout. Prepare yourself for these moments by using some or all of the following suggestions. Give "WILL" some "POWER".
Make a commitment. Join a fitness class, group or clinic. It is harder to cancel when you have a time and monetary commitment.
Find an accountabilty partner or group! **my favorite**
Reward yourself after fulfilling your commitment, maybe some new LULU is in order?
When you aren't in the mood, immediately start to "Go through the Motions." Put your workout gear on as soon as you get home, or feel a twinge to cancel. It is harder to back out of a workout if you are wearing your workout gear. I do this ALOT!
Set a GOAL for yourself. It will pump you up for a workout. eg) I am going to do all the advanced mods! or I am going to lose 2 lbs / week!
Keep your workouts fun, maybe social, and mostly inspiring. Challenge your body to do new things!
Don't expect miracles. Every day is different, and every workout is medicine for your body, even without noticeable immediate results.
Create a fun competition with a friend or accountability partner.... this is the best! Log activity minutes, stair count, pedometer steps, weight loss etc. Be creative!
Log your exercise accomplishments. Nothing inspires me more than seeing the calendar on the fridge with stars on the days I exercised. When the calendar fills up with stars, I get excited about starting a new page.
