Do you ever find yourself stuck under the covers in the morning? Lacking energy or inspiration to get outside? Dreading your workout?
If you’ve felt any of these ways before, you’re not alone. Motivating yourself to workout is a struggle for most people. I personally know how difficult it can be. Workout procrastination is real people!
With that being said, I want to help you to motivate yourself to workout! Through personal experience, I have learned the best ways to find self-motivation and even look forward to working out!
Here are some helpful tips to ease your workout anxiety and get you jumping out of bed in the morning (or whatever time) to attack your workout!
MOTIVATION TIPS TO WORKOUT:
Think about a general plan the night before of what you want to do for a workout/training the next day.
Think about what general time works as well.
Set an alarm if needed to keep you on track.
It’s more than okay if you need to adapt your plan the next day depending on how you feel or if something unexpected pops up.
Important so you don’t get bored or go through the motions.
Try new things & go outside your comfort zone.
Challenge yourself & don’t be afraid to feel uncomfortable or fail at first!
I challenge you to try at least a few of these tips! If you do, I promise you that you will have a new perspective on working out & be able to motivate yourself consistently!
You got this!
NEW YEAR’S INTENTIONS UPDATE:
Looking back on the past few months, I’m proud of myself because I have consistently made mindful decisions of what I choose to put into my body. Eating a balanced diet with no restrictions and everything in moderation is extremely important to me. It allows me to feel my best physically and mentally as well as perform my best on the lacrosse field! It’s an essential part of the healthy lifestyle I love living. One of my favorite dinner meals that I created this month was salmon, couscous and buffalo cauliflower! (When building my plate, I try to pick a protein, vegetable and a grain.) Of course, a healthy Chopped Salad is great too!
Catering made easy!
Serve your group healthy food that tastes really good!
