Motivation Is A Tricky Bitch - How To Get Your Ass (Back) In Gear
No matter who you are, or how fit you get, everyone struggles with motivation at one point or another. Even regular exercisers (AND personal trainers) have trouble getting pumped up on occasion. Whatever the reason for a lack of motivation, inspiring YOURSELF to get sweaty is an uphill battle that’s a normal part of this crazy journey.
Motivation is a tricky bitch.
People often say I’m lucky that finding the motivation to workout comes easily to me, but that’s not the case. Yes, it’s true that there are days when I really look forward to my workouts. But believe me, there are plenty of days when I couldn’t care less and plenty of days when it takes me an extra kick to get going. Lots of different things motivate me, and I need to use reinforcements to get my ass moving on a regular basis.
The internet is OBSESSED with quick tips that can help you find motivation, but they don’t address the biggest part of motivation: you. What works for one person will not work for everyone & what motivates you to workout one day might not work the next. The key isn’t finding one great motivator. It’s building a tool box full of motivators that work for you in different situations. You need to reflect on WHY you’re LACKING motivation before you search for HOW to treat it.
