I started this intense workout plan about two weeks ago and I've stuck strong to it. However, lately I've been losing motivation. How do I get that drive back?
Simply don't stop. An easy workout is better than nothing. Make a 10minute workout with your favourite exercises for everyday :)
Do a workout to make your mind stronger . Your body will follow.
Remember the person you want to be...
That's your goal, you can be that person as long you keep remembering that.
Set routine times, add extra workouts in make it part of your life...You dont forget or give up going to work :-)
Keep going, believe, in vision where you want to be bodywise and health wise and mix your workout Once you start seeing results you will be focused and you will be your own motivation You can do it!
Do it with someone. I find when your actually able to support someone else your more likely to do it with them!
If you don't need drive to eat, to shower , to wake up, to watch tv, to read, to hang out with friends, to get dressed, to take a poop, to brush your teeth, to breathe...then you shouldn't need drive to workout. You do it because it's a part of you and a staple of your day. If you can't get that, then there's nothing anyone can do for you. Don't confuse drive and motivation with attention and validation.
The beginning is easy compared to the maintenance down the road. Consistency is HARD! It might be easier for some, but I can relate, it's easy for me to talk About working out, and get motivated, but I have to feel my back on the bench and my hands on the bar before anything comes to reality. Sometimes new workouts get me motivated, sometimes doing the same workout with someone else and comparing notes keeps me driven. Get creative, find a way to win! :-)
Just remember for what u started and u will get back that motivation don't give up .
Psychologist would argue, to paraphrase, that motivation is correlated to keeping the mind engaged. So disregard those saying, or hinting, your not motivated or driven; you are if you are asking for help.
Bottom line is this: you are not into the workouts. Try incorporating another workout program into and around your current workout programs rest days to keep it "fresh", or simply change the workout you are unmotivated with to do to something new.
With all the workouts and programs Skimble offers, there is certainly something that will keep you engaged and on track to your fitness goals.
