Motivation comes from having a goal. What is your goal? If you would like to get in awesome shape, ask yourself why that is…
Take a minute to really uncover the reason that you want to lose the weight and/or tone up. Don’t say something vague like you want to ‘Be thinner’ or ‘Look more attractive.’
Dig deeper – there is a very specific motivator in your life. You simply need to uncover it. Here are some possible motivators… I want to have more energy to keep up with the kids. I want to improve my health through weight loss to extend and improve my life. I want to lose 15 pounds before my vacation. I want to restore my confidence to wear sleeveless shirts. I want to regain my figure to impress and attract my significant other.
Remember, your number one reason for getting into shape is unique to you. Maybe you want to fit into a smaller pant size or lower your cholesterol. Or maybe you just love how a good workout makes you feel.
Whatever your reason is, remind yourself of it often. Write it down and place it where you will see it every day. Let your friends know or… Feel free to even email it back to me! It may be just the motivation that you needed.
