How to stay motivated in your fitness/healthy journey.

 I get that it’s a struggle, especially nowadays.  With the world a mess and so much unknown, I even find it hard to focus on my workouts.  However, it is more important now than ever to be healthy.  So here are ways that I find I can stay motivated to work out!  If you have any other ones to add, please share.

  1. Take progress pictures and/or measurements.  This will allow you to see the positive changes in your body!  
  2. Have an accountability partner.  I have a couple to hold me to my weekly workout plan and to motivate me to get my butt into gear.
  3. Have a goal and treat yourself!  I.E. After you complete 30 workouts you can get a new workout outfit or pair of shoes.
  4. Follow people that inspire you!  I love Shaunna Marie, Cara Loren, and Lily Sabri.
  5. If you’re feeling burnt out- take a couple days off.  Your body may be exhausted or you may just need a break.  As long as you continue to eat healthy you will not undo the work you’ve already done!
  6. Do workouts you enjoy!  You may be doing some to maintain a certain aesthetic, but a majority of your exercise should be something you actually find pleasure in doing.  This will cut down on burnout, I promise.
  7. Figure out what gets you excited about your healthy lifestyle!  Are you a planner?  I love the Erin Condren fitness planner. A numbers person?  Get a whoop! Goal chart?  Theres a ton on Amazon you can get!
  8. Join a workout contest!  There are so many virtual ones like 5ks, Dietbet etc.  Also I’ve hosted many in the past and would gladly host another in the future!
  9. Schedule a regular workout time each and every day.  This makes sure you take that time each and every day to exercise or stretch on your days off.  
  10. Have a GREAT playlist.  I jam out to Fitradio and there’s always a playlist to fit my mood.  

I hope this helps!  Please let me know if there are any that I’m forgetting!
