Motivation isn’t what it seems.

Can’t seem to muster up the motivation to exercise or eat right?

I hear that a lot.

The basement gym calls you one day and the next day, not so much.

One week salad looks great and the next week the Dove chocolates on your co-workers desk looks a lot better than spinach.

Motivation to exercise regularly and eat well consistently comes and goes.

Motivation to do anything comes and goes. It’s not what it seems – people aren’t motivated 24-7.

So, here’s what you need to do so that you don’t rely on Motivation:

  • Know the reason you want to exercise and eat well. You have to remember why that it is important to you.
          Is it to feel better, to look better, to be more confident, to be able to do something with greater ease, is it because you want to set an example for your kids, do you want to be able to play with grandkids or to get old gracefully and always be independent?
  • Put strategies into place. 

One reason women come to  Her Fitness to be coached and get training is because they want an appointment to have on their calendar and there is no shame in that!

Some people buy food services like Blue Apron or Hello Fresh so they always have a meal ready.

Strategies help you reach your goals and get what you want.
Put something in place today so you don’t have to be motivated to take action…you just have to do it.  

Take action even when you don’t want to.

Motivation can be fleeting. Your emotions are fleeting. You won’t be motivated everyday to do what is necessary and remembering that is half the battle.

So for today..take some action, even if you don’t want to, otherwise you’ll find an excuse to stay the same.
