Blah!.. Don't get me wrong, I enjoy and look forward to working out. But lately I've been going through cycles of eating CLEAN and WORKING OUT then eating UNCLEAN and not WORKING OUT. I'd like to get back in the hang of eating clean and working out constantly. So, I figured having a motivating pal would be helpful. Anybody interested? I'll be sure to return the motivation!
Consistency is key. I also stay motivated if I look at myself as a canvas that I can constantly improve. Looking forward to healthy meals also keeps me pushing
Even on those days where you "don't have time" try and do just at least one exercise to get your head and body into the swing of it. For me it's never missing pushups.
I know how you feel I give myself a splurge meal 3 times a week. Where I throw the clean eating out for just one meal maybe I'm having tiramisu for dessert after dinner or a soda with lunch that would be my splurge and then I go back to clean eating. I just tell myself I got my junk food and now I'm good I don't need anymore and in a couple of days I let myself splurge again but its always back to clean eating after I item of splurge eating. Once or twice a month I'll splurge a whole meal to treat myself for resisting temptations the rest of the time and for staying on track. Hope that helps you. Feel free to msg me if your slipping I'll do what I can to motivate you back into where you really want to be.
Hey I'm new here too so just let me know if you need a random motivator, I'll try to help :)
Hey Hannah! I would say the best thing is not to push yourself too much. Start with short and easy exercises on fixed dates.
Take the time to make out a workout schedule according to the time you feel like you want to spend each day.Don't put so much Down that it becomes overwhelming .You can always do a extra workout or so if you want but you dont have to.Its a option.Think about what you want to accomplish in a week and then distribute it over the days you feel you ant to work out.On eating I would get a app that keeps you aware of your calories burned as well as your calorie intake.I wish you much success in your journey.
