08/20/15- Paula Maier's Healthy Eating/Exercise Journal: Monday

by Paula (Clean Eating Expert) 21. August 2015 21:03



 One of the hardest things to stay consistent with at this time of year is workout.  Kids are going back to school, and the holidays are on the horizon.  Your workout gets pushed to the bottom of the 'importance' list over everyone else’s needs again and again The worst part is that if you always put your own needs aside for others, the worst you feel physically and mentally.

You have to find your motivation. Here is the tricky part; it’s different for everyone. For me, workout is about my mental health as well as improving my physical body.  Working out keeps my frustration level for life low, and my attitude up. That’s my motivation. What’s yours?

If your motivator is good health, put a note on your bathroom mirror, and fridge and car dash to remind you how important workout is for your continued good health.

If it is social, line up some sessions with a trainer, a group classes at the YMCA, or meet a friend to walk the halls of the mall (just no venti latte’s afterwards!).

If giving to others is what motivates you, keep a goal chart.  If you attend and work hard at a set number of days exercising, put a $1-$ 5 into a jar. At the end use that money to buy canned goods, or toys for children in need. That’s a win-win situation.

Find your motivation because it’s important to YOU!
