Some people say the hard part of working out is actually getting yourself to the gym. They're right—the real battle is getting yourself motivated every day you need to go run, lift, or do whatever your workout is. It's great that you have a fitness routine, but you need to make a conscious choice to stick to it every day. Whether it's a cardio day or rest day, it all counts.
Here are some helpful ways you can stay motivated and focused on your workout plan:
1.) Write it down in your planner or calendar. It's like a meeting at work; you have to get down to business! This will help you hold yourself accountable.
2.) Go with a buddy. Nothing like a little friendly competition to get you through that tough last set of push-ups. Having someone who cares about their health like you do will give you extra support.
3.) Keep motivational quotes around your home and work. When you're logging off and checking out for the day, have some written inspiration by your computer to give you that push to hit the gym instead of heading home early.
You owe it to yourself to stay committed. No one can make you go after your dreams besides yourself. Don't hold yourself back.
