Recently, I received a letter from Bonnie who mentioned that she had surgery and had been doing physical therapy.
She is now working out at the gym and wanted to know, “how to stay motivated”.
First of all, everyone is different!
I have a routine of daily exercise, eating nutritious foods, and sleeping well, which keeps me feeling healthy most days!
Here’s what keeps me motivated:
- I feel great
- My clothes fit
- I can sleep at night
- I’m full of energy
- My brain is engaged
- It gets me away from my desk
- My weight stays low
- Keeps depression away
- I feel happy
Watch the video below:
Maybe you could focus on the fact that you get to spend an hour (or however long you are there) on only you!
Bring headphones and listen to uplifting music or an audio book.
Feel good knowing that what you are doing could help you live a long and healthy life.
For those days that I don’t want to workout, I do it anyway, because I know my body will be grateful.
It might take a couple of months to get into the swing of it, but you have to learn to develop the habit of going, even if it’s at different times of the day.
We have a daily routine of working out at 6 AM.
For me, it’s all about the routine!
What kind of workout are you doing now?
If it’s not motivating, maybe you can mix it up a little and make it fun for yourself by added some variety to your workouts.
There are so many choices such as weights, cardio machines or classes. Pick whichever one you like the most!
Going to the gym might enable you to make new workout friends, which is great motivation to keep going!
Guess where I met my hubby?
At the gym!
Good thing I kept going, huh?
Again, Take that hour and do something good for yourself! You are WORTH IT! Let me know how it goes!
