A lot of people ask me what keeps me motivated to choose to workout instead of sitting around..
Few things that keep me going are:
- I challenge myself every time (almost) I workout : For me every workout is like a mini competition. I set goals and I workout with all intension of achieving my goals. I don’t have big goals just small things like maybe adding another km to my run or just reducing my time, increasing my weights or even increasing repetition. This mini competition keeps me looking forward to my next challenge
- I love to shop & dress up. I don’t like to shop for bigger sizes : I give away all clothes that are big for me. I have made a promise to myself that I will not shop for a bigger size. If I stop working out or go back to my unhealthy eating habits I will go back to my old size and I will not be able to wear all the wonderful clothes I just started fitting into.
- Strangers and people I don’t know have appreciated my dedication: Complete strangers from the gym and outside (working in shops in the same building) tell me they have noticed me going to the gym regularly and really appreciate my dedication. Now if I ever feel like missing my workout I think about these sweet things strangers have said to me....that’s all it takes.
- Being dedicated to my fitness journey is the one thing I am good at: I am not somebody who is very good in many things in life, somehow this fitness journey clicked for me and I have become a person who is very consistent with my fitness. I like this consistency, I like being the one of the most regular people in the gym...I like being in control of what I eat and I can say I am no to unhealthy food...somehow my persistence, consistency makes me feel like I am finally good at something and that’s a wonderful feeling to have. I don’t want to let that go
What keeps you going? I would love to hear your motivation too..
