Hi everyone!! Here I am, back with another fitness post!! I love working out, truly it is medicine for me!! Today I wanted to share 5 ways I have been staying motivated to workout lately! I will be honest, after being sick for 2 weeks in a row, it has thrown me off quite a bit, but I am determined to keep moving!! Here’s what I am doing and suggest:
Set A Goal
I am in the process of setting a ton of mini goals. I figure if my goals start out small and I meet them than I can experience success easily. For example, I am trying to run at least two times per week and also lift twice per week. Sometimes that doesn’t always equate to 4 visits to the gym but I still meet my goal.
Work Towards Something
I am traveling a ton over the next few months. Knowing that I am going to be on the beach and also singing in front of a lot of people, it gives me all the motivation I need to get in the gym and stay active. When I am working toward a trip and really just want to feel good, I have to stay on track. Coming up here I have a trip to Mexico early February. Then two trips in March and two in April! I have lot’s to work towards!
Try Something New
Starting this month I am going to be taking cycling classes at Team Ride! It is a local cycling class here in Folsom, also located in the greater Sacramento area! This is not just a cycling class, this is a full body workout! I can’t wait to get in there and get some work done!! My goal is to get there two to three times per week!! More to come on this new adventure!!
When I lost 30 pounds a few years ago the main key to it all was accountability. I had a few people I held myself accountable to and it kept me on track! Simple things like following fitness accounts, mentioning my workouts on IG and chatting to Ben about my plan for the week has helped immensely.
Upgrade Your Fitness Gear
I LOVE new workout gear! I buy it probably too much, but having the right gear to run in and lift in is SUPER important to me. I have been a long time fan of Senita Athletics!! You can see a post that I did with them in 2016 here. They have SO many cute looks on their site right now! My jacket, sports bra and pants in this post is all from them!!
