How I Stay Motivated

I know I’m not the only one who has started a new workout regimen only to get a little bit into it and then suddenly loose all interest. But at the same time, really wanting to improve your health, appearance and fitness. As this most things, you only succeed when the going gets tough.

Do not throw the towel in…

Workout Early 

I now have a job that I love, I pour all my energy into it. By the end of the day I’m completely exhausted and don’t fancy hitting the gym. Starting next week I’m going to try and incorporate some sessions in before the working day starts. I know those 5am alarms are going to be rough, but hopefully I’ll be able to get a little bit more out of my workouts as I’ll be more alert and focused.

Prepare

On a Sunday, I prep all my meals for the week. The weeks were I haven’t meal preped I completely fallen off the wagon. It’s a brilliant way of keeping costs down too. You can see a couple of the things I like to eat here and snack on here.

Create a Log

I try my best to keep track of what I’m eating and what workouts I’m doing. My Fitbit and My Fitness Pal and the two things I swear by – it’s so easy to keep track of everything with these two apps.

Active Wear

I always feel more excited to get up and get to the gym when I have something nice to wear. I love Active in Style and Lululemon for my gym wear – treat yourself. Don’t be put off by their prices because their stuff lasts!

Classes

Most gyms these days offer classes but I swear by using boutique gym classes as a treat. Now they are quite expensive, but it guarantees you’ll show up and that you stick it out for the full 45 minutes. My gym is near work and nowhere near where I live so booking myself into a class from 1Rebel or Another Space is the perfect way to get my arse moving on the weekend.
