I HAVE to workout. I am not one of those people who can maintain their weight with just healthy eating. I can’t maintain my sanity without working out. It makes me HAPPY. But, that doesn’t mean I always feel like doing it. As much as I love working out, there are days when dragging myself to the gym is the very last thing I want to do. But, 9 times out of 10, even on those no-motivation days I still make it to the gym. That’s how progress is made. By showing up even when you don’t feel like it. Instead of just waiting for motivation to strike you have to make it happen and motivate yourself so that fitness becomes a habit. Here are the techniques I use to keep myself following through with my fitness goals even on the days I’d rather spend on the couch.
