What to do when you’re not motivated.

Confession: lately I’ve been struggling with some serious LACK of motivation with my workouts. This is typically never an issue for me BUT no one is motivated 100% of the time, and it’s been more of a struggle for me lately.
.
Does that mean I’m skipping my workouts?! Absolutely NOT.

Here’s what’s been working for me:
I’ve been scheduling my workouts like appointments. Legit, writing them into my planner. I treat them like I would a doctor’s appointment. I can’t cancel, can’t move things around, I have to show up.
I tell myself to get through ten minutes and if I’m not feeling it, I can stop. Most often the hardest part is getting STARTED and once I am moving I am just fine.
I constantly REMIND myself that I will feel 10X better AFTER I workout. No matter how tired, anxious, or busy I am, I will never REGRET getting it done.
.
Lastly, I cut myself some slack. I know I’m not perfect and if I miss a workout here or there, it’s not the end of the world, or the start of a new diet. I simply learn from it, and make sure I don’t miss another day. 💕

Do you struggle with motivation to workout? What helps you stay on track? mot💪

What’s your WHY?

What’s your WHY?! Did you know one of the things I hate the most is pictures and videos of myself. Yes, you got that right, I’ve made a living off of posting pictures and videos of myself to social media. Something I highly DISLIKE. 
.
So WHY?! On the days when I really don’t feel like taking another picture, making another post, coming up with the perfect thing to say, I remind myself why the heck I started this in the first place.
.
Sharing my story. 
Sharing my struggles.
Helping other women not feel ALONE.
Helping other women reach their true potential.

This is what I get to do on a daily basis.
.
To me there is nothing more REWARDING than helping another woman not feel the feelings I felt for so many years. And yes I have my days where I just don’t feel like it too, but then I remember WHY I started this whole thing in the first place. I realize all that I’ve accomplished. And I remember that I’m doing EXACTLY what I set out to do. 💕

Where are my anxiety warriors at?!

If you struggle with anxiety like me I have to share the one thing I learned…when it hits, you have two choices, you can choose to let it keep you stagnant or PUSH PAST it.
.
Today it hit me hard along with some major overwhelm, but instead of lying down and giving into it, I got moving and got outside. I knew I had a night of work ahead and would be WAY more productive if I actually took a breather.
.
Took a trip to the dog park, inhaled some sunshine, and I was relieved, relaxed, and ready to get back to tackling my to-do list. Now you may not have the freedom to skip work and hit the dog park (but it’s always an option 😉 ) but find a way to escape for a bit, get some fresh air, moving has always be a HUGE help in combating my anxiety.
