I am a huge advocate for creating fitness motivation.
Whether it be hanging a bikini in your bedroom, going to a spin class with a friend, or keeping a diary that tracks your journey towards health, motivation is a MUST in regards to reaching your ultimate goal.
We cannot rely on other people to get us where we need to be, nor blame them if our goal is not attained. Sure that extra push is always a good thing, but in the end, all that hard work and commitment is up to YOU and only YOU.
Let that extra push, whatever it may be, just add to your already ferocious and committed approach towards finally reaching your fitness goals.
Be your own motivator, cheerleader, trainer and friend.
Your inner voice is all you need to battle through till the end.
After training this morning, my client and I headed upstairs and set up a visual motivator on her kitchen counter.
As her pounds begin to shed, we will move the pebbles into the opposite jar until the “Pounds To Lose” is at zero. It’s a fun and interactive way to track her progress, while keeping her motivated at the same time.
It’s sort of like receiving a gold star in class.
Remember how exciting it was when you stuck one of these on the bulletin board next to your name? Such a proud moment! Something that you wanted to share and show off.
These jars serve the same purpose.
It all comes down to motivating yourself to do better, ignoring those negative voices in your head, and keep pushing forward through every struggle, hump and “I don’t wanna!” moment.
It’s up to you to make it happen.
YOU can do it!
