Whether it be in the gym, or life, I struggle staying motivated. Social media hasn't made it any easier. Everyone is reminding you of their best assists and how much fun their life is. Don't let that get to you and get in a rut when it comes to achieving your goals. That being said here are some of my favorite ways to stay motivated.
Create a Vision Board: it can be a collage of things you want or taking a marker and writing stuff down. Lay it out to see every day to remind you of what your goals are and why.
Set Short Term Goals: when we hit a goal it's so satisfying which creates more motivation to keep going. It's also a great way to stay on track (i.e. I want to run 3 miles this week).
Get a Workout Buddy: use each other for accountablity, push and encourage each other to be better.
Commit to a Class: switch it up and try something different. Get out of your element and maybe you'll find a new favorite way to burn calories. Most gyms offer free group classes. Yoga is my favorite.
Take Progress Photos: its hard to see our transformation when we look at ourselves everyday. Take photos to compare so you can see the difference from week to week. Knowing your body is changing keeps your spirits high.
Focus on Yourself: this is my biggest pitfall. Too many times I catch myself getting wrapped up in what others are doing and comparing myself. Focus on you and your goals.
Be proud of YOUR progress and accomplishments. Everyone had to start somewhere and no one is like you! <3
