We talk about “motivation” being our driving factor constantly and yes, motivation is key when trying to kickstart your health journey.
That boost of excitement that causes you to...
✔️Run to the nearest mall to grab a new pair of gym shoes and a few cute workout outfits
✔️Stock your fridge with the freshest ingredients to prepare all of the new healthy meals you found on fitness blogs and Pinterest (guilty!)
✔️Purchase a fancy, shmancy fitness planner to document all of your workouts and track your calories...
Basically just leaving you feeling super excited for what’s to come and the badass results you’re going to get
Then, reality hits...
It hits quickly, without warning.
Maybe you had a shitty, long day at work.
Maybe you had a fight with your significant other.
Maybe you went a wee bit overboard on indulgent food and drinks over the weekend and you’re feeling sluggish and bummed.
Whatever the reason may be, you lose your “exercise mojo” and the realities of life make it difficult to get your workout in.
Listen, it’s freaking awesome to feel enthused and sparked to start a new program, but keep in mind that motivation can be affected by SO many things.
So here is my challenge for YOU: focus on building healthy habits rather than relying solely on motivation to help you reach your fitness goals; habits that you can follow-habits that will just become a part of your daily routine.
This is this key to long-term success.
This is the way to stick to your fitness/nutrition plan even when your motivation level is low and you just don’t feel like doing the damn thing!
Stop guessing & start progressing....
