What motivates you? I find myself working out hardcore for a week then I see food and forget all my hard work then eat again because of sadness:(
Set your goal, for example X lbs at X month, but in that period set small goal like in a week, or by a special date. See inspirational works from people and remember, its a Lifestyle not judge sentence.
For me... quick, today, right now goals.. every day has there own struggle You don't know what tomorrow brings. I have long term goals but right now I Do today :-)
Why dun you maintain a workout journal? Easiest way to stay on track, monitor your progress and keep you motivated. Really feels good when you flip through the pages and go over your progress.
Here's how to do it. If you start eating well, you think. " I might as well workout, since I'm eating healthy" or "I should eat healthier since I'm now working out" So just do both and allow a cheat day or two. It won't make much difference unless you're training for competition and a week out from it.
This reminded me of the hip hop song where the guy says baby imma be your motivation or something like that.. Lol sorry random haha
Well remember that its easy to go and eat fatty foods, while workout takes focus and determination. You will feel a lot better about yourself when you've gotten into a good habit of working out because you are rewarded two ways: 1. You will have a nice body and 2. You will be proud of what you can accomplish when you stick to your goals and tough it out. Just stay dedicated and you will be grateful that you did :)
My motivation is health itself. Most of the time, I sit at work. I also sit a lot (I'm a gamer).
I want to stay healthy and look young at older age, thus, workout for several minutes a day is a worthy sacrifice :)
"change is very hard at the begining, messy in the middle and GORGEOUS at the end" never give up and I guess watching motivationl videos on Utube could help ALOT.
Before i started workout i decided to be healthy, to eat healthy, see this as a challenge and change ur habits.
U can use my fitness pal to track your daily meal, but personally i think that something is very boring do that every single day.
And always remember: workouts doesn't work if you don't eat healthy.
Hey there,now motivation is something though to get but here is how I got mine, write down all excuses on paper(eg.no time,I want to sleep).Now I want you to take a good look at them and say : "I am not going to say those words this month"(btw I think no time is silly excuse because 1 hour workout is roughly 4% of your day) And after you see results you will be hooked amd you will be motivation for yourself, hope this helps .(Btw sorry if I made any mistakes, english is not my mother-tounge)
Plan your day and stay on track. When I have to be somewhere at a certain time, I think how much of my workout can I get in before I have to get ready? I try to get in my workouts in the morning so that way I can do another in the afternoon.
That's the problem... you shouldn't start hard core, you will burn down in no time. Go slow and easy first and results will pop. Your diet same thing, eat what you like but in moderation. The more results you see the better choices you do and the more motivation you will have. Also do something you like, excercise doesn't have to be a torture.
Hi I'm am similar
Something I do is set an actual event, like a community event
I found a free weekly 5k fun run which is free
That gives me some motivation
Each Sunday I spend some me time thinking about what I cam add or reduce from my life. That might be: butter - From this point forward, no more butter; or it might be something simple like (if you tend not to have breakfast but we know we should have something), add a apple for breakfast. ...
Broken up into bite size pieces is not so daunting
You'll find what works for you
