I am really struggling to find the motivation to work out these days. Anyone else with me? I’d rather walk on hot coals than step foot in a gym so that is just NOT an option for me (I’m sooo not a gym person). I do enjoy hot yoga, but it’s been SO hot in LA lately and I’m finding if hard to step into a heated room when it’s 100 degrees outside – heck I’m finding it hard to leave my house! So when I saw this shirt, I had to buy it because it sums up perfectly how I feel. It say’s “TOMORROW: A Mythical land where are your motivation, dreams and goals live.” HA! I’m hoping that every time I wear this shirt, it will give me the motivation to start my “tomorrow plans,” TODAY!
So, what did I do today? I woke up early and went on a hike with my girlfriend Ashley. It’s not a boot camp class by any means, but it’s a start! I find it is SO much easier to work out when you have a buddy to do it with you.
Another thing I’ve always done to boost motivation, is I tell myself that I just need to put on my yoga clothes and drive to the yoga studio. That’s it. Not a ton of effort right? Right! Then if I get to class and decide I don’t want to do it, I can leave. But WHY would I do that? I always end up staying for the class. But by breaking up my BIG TASK of a whole workout (Getting ready, driving there, taking the class) into smaller, more manageable tasks that require less effort, it makes it seem more manageable my head. It’s almost like I’m tricking myself into getting there and once I’m there, I’m going to workout. What do you guys do to motivate yourself? Let’s discuss in the comments below. I need suggestions!!!
