exercise motivation

When you don’t feel like working out….

  1. Do it anyway
  2. Put on dance music and move!
  3. Do it anyway, just not as long.
  4. Remind yourself why you started 
  5. Put on your workout clothes
  6. Look at your before pictures
  7. Read some motivational quotes
  8. Focus on the rewards
  9. Read weight loss/fitness success stories
  10. Focus on how good you’ll feel once you’re done
If you think you’re too busy to exercise, try this experiment: For one day, schedule a time to work out, and then stick to it—even if you can exercise for only 10 minutes. “At the end of that day, ask yourself if you were any less productive than usual,” The answer will probably be no—and your favorite excuse will be gone.
