I have been on Skimble for a while now, but im finding it hard to stay motivated. Tried asking some of my neighbors & friends to join me but they are not interested in working out. Would anyone be interested to be my work out buddy? Share workout tips, etc, or just someone to nudge me when I haven't been doing anything and I will do the same for you?

Shoot! Accidentally deleted my reply.
I was saying, thank you guys for replying to my post. Yes please I do need a nudge from time to time. Currently I aim to train 3-4 times a week (Mon, Tue & Fri mornings, and sometimes Sat if I'm lucky ) but unfortunately I can only managed to do 1 or 2 and sometimes none. Time is so precious and scarce, I think 24/7 is not enough to accommodate everything .  That's why sometimes I train in the evening,  but then I'll have trouble sleeping after, so it is a little tricky sticking to my training plan. Anyway, let us all help each other to get healthier & fitter!

after an evening training go to YouTube and do a guided meditation for sleep it slows you down mellows you out and will put you to sleep you may have to try a few to find ones you like

Know how you feel motivation comes in waves sometimes it's hard to catch it as life toys us along its path. Is nice to have a friend that'll inspire or challenge you or whichever your mood needs. And help keep you focused on your goals.

What's your reason for being active and fit? Is it just to be healthy or you want to look good and feel good about yourself or somekind of sporting events perhaps all of the above or something else?. Me I'd have to say all of the above and need it as a change in lifestyle

Tis all the reason you need I suppose... The feeling you get after a work out is immaculate... Wish the weather would co operate though lol. Workouts done but now looks like rain for my run..
01 Oct
Maybe if am quick I can run between drops
02 Oct
Nope wasn't quick enough but felt good running in the mist. Feeling much better now :-)
02 Oct
Oh no, you got soaked? That's refreshing though
02 Oct
It was very refreshing. Just looked like it was going to rain. Was no more than a few drops but the mist was constant and felt good

Hey, I work out to feel good and stay healthy but I find it hard to keep motivated. The most motivating thing for me is to see results of course, so I always need to work out AND eat healthy , and it makes me see results SO much faster! :)

03 Oct
Fantastic! Let's all keep each other motivated. It feels good when we look good doesn't it.

Needing some inspiration fellow Skimblers, weather is shitty can anyone give me 3 reason why should I move my backside and do some training today? (sighs)

10 Oct
I know how you feel I miss summer already. First and foremost reason you know you'll feel 200% better inside and out 1.Because it makes you feel confident 2. Because it helps you get stronger 3.Because exercise helps combat depression I have a list of 100 reason to work out lol :-) Hope that helps motivated you Gina. Have an awesome day
10 Oct

I'll help! Because I need motivation too. I enjoy morning workouts but it takes me over an hour just to walk outside lol.

13 Oct
Thanks Breona, its really hard to stick to the workout routine specially for a busy mum like me. I only do train in the morning when im not working otherwise had to do it at night and most of the time im already too tired to do anything, at least I managed to do a few this evening really had to burn off the chocolate cake & poplova I've demolished during the weekend lol All the best to you.
