How much time do you spend thinking reasons why you "can't" do something? Why you can't lose weight, why you can't get the job you want, why you can't buy the house or car you want...etc.What if, instead, you asked yourself "How can I?" When you tell yourself you can't, you shut yourself off from any possibility of doing what you want and destroy any motivation to act. When you ask yourself, "How can I?" you open up your mind to think of possible solutions and you are motivated to act.
So today's workout was not lifting in my gym, or running on the treadmill. Nope, it was simply working on some landscaping and working on some parking for my clients. You see, I have an extra parking spot, but wanted to raise it up so that is was more level.
When I am not training, I work in an office. I get a lot of attention- not always positive and uplifting- when I leave work after changing into my workout clothes. Which also leads to recieving a lot of questions at work that vary from "my knee hurts, why do you think that is" to "how do i get a better butt" to "I am signed up for a marathon, can you help me with a training schedule"
Sometimes, I can answer and sometimes I defer the question to their primary care doctor.
Happy Monday! Not just any Monday, the one after Daylight Savings time in the spring where you are a little groggy and "zombie-like" for the first few days. However, I'm sure many of you are willing to deal with the fog knowing there will be more daylight in the evening and warmer temperaures.
I was asked today "What do you do when you just don't feel like working out"
I have those days, as a matter of fact I had one yesterday, and they are just a part of being human. Even the most motivated person still can use a push every now and then. My suggestion is to keep motivating quotes around so that, even when you arent looking for it, sometimes a little motivation will come your way.
I keep one on my wall in my room, I have on in my car, and i have one up at my desk at the office.... and sometimes they give me just the little "umph" i need to get moving.
