6 BEST WAYS TO MOTIVATE YOURSELF TO WORKOUT

Skin First Daily

I have been finding it so hard to motivate myself to get back in the gym. You know that feeling after you get to your desired weight, and now you think you all slim and sext, then your body starts procrastinating every time you think of workout/gym. That was soon me a few weeks ago. But now after vacation and feeling like I have put on 100 pounds (really it’s probably like five pounds) I had to motivate myself and get myself to keep up the momentum. I might be slimmer, but I need to tone up and sculpt and build a lifestyle from working out.  So, here are six best ways to motivate yourself to workout; get up and get sext at the gym;

Get new workout clothes.

The same way a nice outfit makes me feel hot and sexy when I go out, it’s the same effect new gym wear has on me. When I wear the snug gym pants and sport bras, I feel so fit, and if I don’t look fit then I am more motivated to go and look fit. My goal is to wear a sports bra and gym pants to go running outdoor, so I can stare at my abs as they form! Yes!

Take your workout outside.

Sometimes, you just need a change of scenery. To break out of the indoor workout, go running outside, go hiking, go biking or even take your yoga outdoor. It’s a nice breath of fresh air and it gives us that break from constantly staring at a treadmill or even people watching.  The weather is getting nice now in NYC/ NJ. This is the perfect time to go outside and soak up some good vitamin D and get some fresh air. (Just don’t forget to use sunscreen).

Download a personal trainer app.
So if you are like me that needs someone to push you at the gym, then you definatly need a personal trainer. But on the real, this personal trainer market is crazy because they are way too expensive. Like who really pays 800 dollars a month, that’s insane. Anyway after using all my local gyms free one day personal trainer passes, I decided to move to the app store to see if I could find a better alternative to working out. Then I stumbled upon this app called Aaptiv. This app is the BOMB. For the 7 day free trial, I was sold! They have some personal trainers record their workout sessions and when you start it, you feel like you have a real personal trainer next to you. The music is pumping, the instructions are clear and they almost push you as hard as a real personal trainer will do. You can even schedule classes, from abs, to treadmills, to running outdoor, etc, trust me when I say, with this app, you don’t need a real personal gym instructor, you feel the heat and the motivation from the app. The app cost $9.99 a month but it's a really dope app. Imagine the price difference as well. I was sold on the app and I love it!

Find a workout buddy or start a workout group.

If your problem is that you are too lazy to push yourself to get up, then you should get a workout buddy. So in the evenings, I tell myself I'm going to go to the gym once I rest up for an hour. When the hour comes, I’m like tomorrow I'll work out. I get so lazy and can’t even be bothered to get up from my bed. So you see this is where you need a buddy to get you out of your lazy self and push you to working out, and vice versa of cos. Sharing workout goals and tracking progress together, really helps motivate and inspire you. Start a group with friends who are determined to lose weight, share workouts and share weekly progress. You never know whose stats will encourage you and whom you will encourage.

Take before and after pictures.
There is nothng better than tracking your progress when you start working out. Take before and after pictures. Focus on key areas you are trying to improve, set a time line, workout routine, and every week, take a pic of the progress. After 30 days post the pictures and see how hard work pays of! #winning

Put yourself up for a challenge.

No one wants to be a loser, right? Exactly. Challenge yourself to a 30-day challenge focusing on particular goals. For example, you can do an abs challenge or a cardio challenge. And really go in on the to do work out plan. This is a great way to stay on track and stay motivated, because you know what you want to achieve and will make sure you get it done. You aren’t a quitter or a loser! I always challenge myself and it really helps.
