It’s time for my typical confession at the end of the month- I’ve missed a two days of exercise in the this month. Can I use the excuse that my daughter was sick for almost a week? The truth is, it’s hard to stay motivated- even if I have a blog that helps to keep me accountable. This month has been successful in getting back on track. Tonight I actually requested that my husband feel my abs (…and he seemed quite underwhelmed by my stronger core- thanks, hon!). This resolution is naturally one I’d like to continue, preferably for my entire lifetime. I thought I would take a moment to gather some strategies for keeping motivated about fitness:
- Keeping a schedule and sticking with it.
- Good music- I recently discovered a podcast called Motion Traxx, which has premixed workout music. Writing this post though has just inspired me to make up my own playlist. Any can’t-help-but-move-my-booty music suggestions?
- Having a workout buddy. Making workout dates (instead of going out to eat dates!).
- New workout clothes
- Keeping it fun.
- Oh, yes- and the satisfaction of knowing I’m doing the healthy thing.
What keeps you moving?
