What Motivates You to Workout?

workoutmotivationI have never been very motivated to workout. It actually feels like torture to me! And I’m one of those people who makes every excuse in the book not to workout…. It’s too hot, I just took a shower and I don’t want to sweat or my favorite, I have to something better to do!

I’m always impressed with people who run every day or go to the gym before work in the morning. How do they do that? I used to go to a boot camp class three times a week. How did I do that? I remember talking to a woman at boot camp about why she came every week and she said because “she wanted to be able to eat whatever she wanted”. That became my motivation. But these days it’s not doing the trick.

Sometimes motivation isn’t a lifestyle change but it’s an event. Getting married, losing the baby weight, turning 40 something — all of these are great motivations. Events are also great ways to jump start a workout routine or eating better. It can be the best motivation. But there comes a time in your life when working out or eating right isn’t a choice. Wouldn’t it be nice to get healthy before you have to.

So whatever motivates you — get motivated. Working out can be a lifesaver!
