Sore Today Strong Tomorrow

“Sore Today, Strong Tomorrow”

 

Time after time you decide to start working out, follow a diet plan, or begin a journey towards healthier life. But is that decision enough?

No, it is not. Because somewhere down the road, you begin to lose the motivation and ultimately give up.

You start skipping one workout session, and without even knowing, you’re back to your normal life without making any progress. So where do the things go wrong?

So in this article, let’s talk about different ways that will help you keep up your workout motivation and let you finally reach your fitness goals.

 

Find the Why and Focus on the Goal

When You Feel Like Quitting Think About Why You Started

“When you feel like quitting, think about why you started.”

 

You can do this by writing down your goals and the reasons behind them. Try doing this in two different columns by drawing a line in between.

For example:

Goal: I need to lose 5 pounds this month.

Reason: I need to lose 5 pounds so that I can buy the jeans I saw today.

Make this list as personal as you can, so that you can relate to it, and keep it is detail. Soon these will make a subconscious mark on your memory.

“Do it for the people who want to see you fail.”

You should also note down the times when you feel like giving up. Read your goals and reasons aloud to yourself. This seems weird, but this is how professional athletes train themselves mentally, so why don’t you give it a try?

The reason behind all this is to keep yourself focused on the goals. If you have reached all of them, then set some new ones. But always remember to set realistic goals, so that you don’t get discouraged by seeing results.

 

Update Your Workout Wardrobe

“You are one workout away from a good mood.”

Making sure your workout gear is up to date while exercising is yet another important thing. Throw away your old running shoes, if you have used them for more than 200 miles. Similarly, look for the workout clothes, and make sure they are functional and comfortable. These are the little things that will ruin your motivation.

In addition, as always said, appearance matters. A new pair of work-out pants will motivate you to hit the gym when compared to the old ones. After all it is said that the confidence comes from feeling good about our self. So if you are still wearing same old clothes from a decade ago, then it’s definitely time to hit the shops.

 

Listen to Music that Makes You Move

“The secret of getting ahead is getting started.”

 

A great way to keep up your motivation to exercise is to listen to upbeat music. Music can distract you from the workout in a good way – so that you don’t focus on the pain or discomfort.

 

Take Control of Your Thoughts

It’s not about having time, it’s about making time.

“It’s not about having time, it’s about making time.”

Discipline comes with practice and trust me it’s not very easy. You need to grab control over your thoughts to stay motivated.

 

Excuses don't burn calories

“Excuses don’t burn calories.”

The secret to success is not in overworking but in keeping control over our thoughts. The moment you start making excuses, you lose the battle then and there.

 

Make Yourself Accountable

Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”

Tell about your goals to your family and friends. This will make you accountable and help you to stay on course towards your fitness goals. You will have a mental note of you telling it to people, which will help you be stay motivated to work out.

 

Set Fitness Goals with a Friend

Surround yourself with fitness minded people. Positivity can be so contagious.

“Surround yourself with fitness minded people. Positivity can be so contagious.”

This is like the rule 1 of the motivation book. Having a partner in dieting or workout goes a long way.

Apart from competition, it also helps in encouraging you to achieve your goals. Pick a partner, whose company you love and also the one that will hold you up when you feel a little low.

A like-minded partner doubles the chance of you reaching your goal rather than doing it alone.

 

Change the Location or Sport

“Every day is a new beginning. Take a deep breath and start again.”

If you feel you have been working in the same environment for long and not in mood to go there again for your next workout, then you should consider making a change. If you have been working out at your home, then think about joining a gym. Interaction with people and using different equipment can keep you motivated.

For those getting bored at working out in a gym, try switching thing up. Do your workout outside or at home. After all there is something special in working out in a quiet and solitude place rather than noisy and crowded gym.

Make it a lifestyle, not a duty.

“Make it a lifestyle, not a duty.”

Map Your Progress

“There is no one giant step that does it. It’s a lot of little steps.” -Peter A. Cohen

 

Writing down your progress is the most important thing to see change. This helps in increasing motivation. Noting down your daily workouts will help you to see your progress and will help you in understanding the things you still need to work on. Or how else will you even know that you have moved one step closer to your goal?

 

Stick to it

Good things come to those who sweat.

“Good things come to those who sweat.”

Once to achieve your goal, keep sticking to your routine. Getting into shape is a lot harder than it looks. It takes lot of hard work, commitment and discipline.

So once you get there, don’t stop working out and lose whatever you have gained till now. So keep up the good work and live a healthy lifestyle.

 

These little tricks will help you to keep your workout motivation. So start your fitness journey fresh again, and this time motivated to reach all your fitness goals.
