How do you get yourself motivated
I work 2 Full time jobs I find it hard to exercise. When I get home I'm burn out.
Do you need motivation or do you need "time"? If it's time, do HIT and HIIT workouts, 2-3 a week is enough. Maybe you can use the way to your job as a workout? Like riding a bike, running, walking... and do little workouts at work. There is always something you can do, it doesn't have to be a 60 minute workout;-)
I think of the guy who landed on the sidewalk in front of my apartment after jumping off the 14th floor balcony, and what he probably wasn't doing in life.
I think of how depressed I was for much of my life, or for the month I recently stopped working out.
I think of the Earth as a spaceship on an interstellar mission in which I have to workout so my body doesn't deteriorate while on the journey.
I think of the office pool party.
I consider maintaining my health a duty I must fulfill for the sake of others.
I make commitments to workout in my schedule so when i start rationalizing 'taking a break' I feel very uncomfortable and end up going anyway.
I paid for a class (boxing) which keeps me committed and interested.
I read articles and blogs about nutrition and exercise.
I regularly check my 'friends' skimble feed and 'like' all their workouts.
I dont work as much as you. I don't know how you do it. You might want to start thinking about work life balance. Studies show that work keeps us from getting enough sleep. People slept a lot more when the unemployment was high. I bet the study would show the same thing for exercise.
Anyway, what I do is to put on workout clothes, even if i am not feeling like going anywhere. Then i start looking at skimble for a little while to find things that interest me. If i am really not feeling it, i tell myself to just do it for 10 minutes. Usually after about ten minutes i feel like continuing, but even then when i am having a really bad day, i will quit. Also a 30 minute nap and some caffeine does wonders.
When i get home from school im usually really tired too. So i'll get home, eat a healthy snack, have a quick nap, relax a little, and then workout around 6 or 7.
That way in fueled up, im rested and ready to smash my workouts! Motivation really does come from within, keep with it for a few weeks and when you see changes with your body you'll become addicted!
Sometimes its hard to get motivated but not impossible and i just tell myself "do you want to be sexy or not" that works for me hahaha just do youre best to stay active
