for me, the best motivation is to set a goal, write it down, mayb add it to my online calendar with reminders, and the biggest part for me is telling people I will be doing it; bcause then I feel bound to do it so I'm not a liar or failure. we each have to find what works as motivation for us. verbal accountability, a picture of an outfit or slimmer us hanging on the fridge, a person that will text us weekly, etc

I agree. The problem with me goes something like; i start with a bang and i knock myself out too quickly. I just can't stay disciplined somehow. I find no way of getting over my laziness.

maybe- make a schedue on a calendar. only workout for a specific number of day a week. 3 or 4. to avoid burn out. schedule in breaks, to avoid burn out.
a goal is good. a goal with a detailed plan/schedule is better. identify your main problem (burnout?) and find a way to work around it (less days/shorter workout times).. Still have a need for the fitness scene and you have reached your limit of workouts for the week? Research fitness topics. keep a notebook of everything you learn and have questions about.

Thanks a lot for this!

I think i need to get my body accessed somehow. Cuz i really have no clue where to begin. I will be joining a gym by the end of January. But before that, i need to find out my strengths and weeknesses.

In addition to burnout, i really think i am too low on energy. And i have no idea how to counter this low energy conundrum.

i experience low energy daily. (I havesome chronic health hurdles.) What helps for me: eating lots of protein spread through out the day (not getting on the Low Carb bandwagon!), Making sure I get enough iron and vitamin D, enough water, enough sleep

Thanks again. i shall take your advice seriously.

I guess i can really learn from your experience.

If i need more help, can i ask you later on?

02 Jan
sure. maybe you can get some bloodwork from your health provider, too. will your gym provide some free sessions with trainers?
02 Jan
By bloodwork, do you mean blood test? No free sessions with trainer, i am afraid.
02 Jan
yes, a blood test.
02 Jan
What kind of blood test? I mean any idea so i can ask my doctor. And how can the blood test help in my fitness goals?
02 Jan
the blood test can see if there is a reason for low energy. not enough iron? high white blood cell count? let your doctor know you are starting a workout prgorm and feel tired all the time so wanted a baseline check up/blood test to make sure everything is OK before you get started. maybe you ust just need more sleep, but maybe you are low in something, like Vitamin B. wont hurt to check things out
