Motivation Monday…Where are you at?

Happy Monday friends!

I’ve decided to start partaking in motivation Monday as a place to get organized and jazzed for the week! With winter here daylight hours are short and we are slammed with holiday activities and festivities. It’s the easiest way to forget about our own wellness and fitness.

So, the question is…what will motivate you each week?

A lot of the time, remembering why I care for my body is my best motivation. Sometimes this changes, but being clear on WHY keeps me accountable. Right now my why is to be healthy and balanced. This has changed after getting pregnant. My goal is to be the healthiest home for baby G as possible.

But what does it mean for you? Maybe you’re in the same boat as me, or maybe you have kids and you want to enjoy playing with them more. Or maybe it’s for the jeans hidden in the back of the closet you’d like to wear again. Whatever it may be….make sure you know what’s driving you to care for your body.

so now you know why, what’s going to get you there every workout?

  • Post your why somewhere visible to remind you
  • Plan your weeks workouts and post them in your house, or online for accountability
  • Set out your workout clothes the night before
  • Connect with others in the same boat
  • Do activities you love! If you don’t like going to the gym, go running or take on at home program etc.

Lastly, the most importantly part, just get moving. Whether it’s 10 minutes or 60 minutes, you have to start somewhere and you have to start at some point. Instead of putting it off another day, just start NOW! You can do it 😊 Don’t cut yourself short.
