Sorry for the inconsistency of last week's post. School was kicking my butt last week! Also, with the the weather starting to be so cold outside I'm trying to find ways to take some outfit photos for you all. If you have any suggestions please let me know down in the comments down below!
Today I am excited to share a new series with you all! Some of you may know that I work at a gym and that I have started gaining an interest in working out since last year. I wanted to share my interest with you all with this new series called "Motivation Monday." Once a month I am going to post a "Motivation Monday" post about a certain topic pertaining to fitness. I hope you are excited for this series as I am and if you have any post sugestions please let me know!
Today's post is all about how to stay motivated to work out! It's no surprise that losing weight and being healthy is the number one New Year's resolution for most people, but did you know that majority of people only maintain those resolutions for the first couple of months? Here are some tips that will keep you going to the gym all year around!
1. Get new workout clothes
New workout clothes always motivate me to get my booty to the gym! I mean, any excuse to go shopping is great right? Head to your favorite athletic store and pick up some new workout gear to get you into the mood to go workout!
2. Inspiration board
If I see my goals written down in front of me everyday I am more likely to do them even when I'm not in the mood to. Make a cute inspiration board on a corkboard or poster board and put it up in your room. When you are constantly reminded of your goals you are more likely to set out to achieve them!
3. Grab a buddy!
Ok, I know this tip has been said many times, but it is so true! I am less likely to bail out on a friend when we have things planned so set up some workout dates with your buddies! I love going to zumba classes with friends, it makes working out so much more fun and you're there to motivate each other!
4. Take progress photos
When you can see progress happening you're more likely to continue working out, at least for me. I know taking photos of yourself may seem uncomfortable, but you're the only one that's going to look at them! Seeing how far I've came always pushes me to continue on my fitness journey.
5. Schedule it
I'm a major planner and hate when things don't go as scheduled. To help me stick with your workout routine I make sure to schedule it like it's a class in my planner. You can start with going to a group fitness class you like every week or just block a time frame for you to go to the gym!
I hope you all found some of these tips helpful and are able to se them to help you stay motivated to go to the gym! Also, let me know if you're excited for this new series! I hope you all have a wonderful week!
