How Do I Stay Motivated To Exercise Regularly?

Pinning and posting pictures of super thin models may seem like a good way to stay inspired, but according to a new study, it's more likely to hurt your progress. If so, then a great exercise to lose weight is to climb your stairs - a good steady pace is recommended on the way up, and then a slower pace coming back down. By increasing your heart rate, you'll have an increased energy and feeling of well-being- You'll be better able to take on all of your other goals and tasks that you want to get done every day. One of the best ways to keep motivated is to find inspiration from people who have what you want. I exercise at home so I don't really need cute presentable clothes to workout in. Not gonna lie I've workout out in pajamas before.



Write down the exercise statistics that are important to you: for example, how long you exercised, how far you walked (or ran or biked), how much weight you lifted, and how many reps you did. Those MS press books are notorious for putting you to sleep but they do contain excellent information (well most of them, sometimes MS press doesn't get it right). One thing I have learned over 4 1/2 years on my weight loss journey is the importance of PMA (Positive Mental Attitude). Everyone has their own reasons, and it is up to you to find the one particular reason that is your workout motivation.

However, it was very important to me, and I was highly motivated to find a doable solution. I find it very helpful to create long term and short term goals in order to stay motivated when running. Learn exactly which exercises and diets are a waste of time and which to use to get your best body ever! For example, I work out with specific people when I'm doing legs, when I'm doing arms, and when I'm doing cardio.

For example; maybe you could have a manicure when you lose 5lb, buy those jeans you've been after for a while, or go out and get drunk. I dance to music on my phone n I try to work out my arms with this shake weight I bought. One is a yoga workout and the other is sort of a resistance training, circuit training workout. Try to get out of this habit by rewarding yourself when you reach your goals with non-food related items. Its true what they say, once I work out, I don't have the desire to ruin what I just did with bad food, so I find myself making better food choices also.

Or use technology like daily e-mail reminders, workout journaling websites or iPhone applications to keep you on task, says Haberstro. It's also sensible to accept that the development curve you've been seeing for the past 6-8 weeks of regular exercise is tough to keep up. After all, the more fit you get, the more it takes to get even fitter. This will only ever end in disappointment, however, because losing weight is harder work than putting it on! Another example that I've had clients implement that's really helpful is having someone drop them off at work.

You see a special few have stay motivated to workout a secret way to stay focused even when its absolute chaos all around them. Just going for a brisk walk maybe with some bodyweight exercises instead of a really tough workout is a great way to reward yourself and help keep your energy high. This may seem a bit childish, but it can be a huge game changer when you start to lose your motivation for paying off debt.

I work 3x a week so thats my workout sched, pack the gym bag the night before then by 4:30am im @ the gym from there I go to work by 7am 12hr shift, on my off days I do cycling 2x min of 10mi to a max 30mi with 3000ft climbs. A person that runs 5 miles (8.0 km) a day doesn't get that the energy they exert is a lot less than the energy someone uses that hasn't worked out in years.
