But, as the winter weather fast approaches, and any dregs of motivation are fast leaving the building, I got ya covered mi amigos! I've got a bag of tricks up my sleeve and would love for you to give these a go AND share the love -
What are your go to moves to trick that pesky mate of yours 'Motivation' and get you geared up and racing out the door?
1. Schedule morning workouts and BAN the snooze for just one week.
Yes getting out of bed before 6am for a run is hard. But convincing yourself to go for that same run at the end of an exhausting working day is harder. For just one week try setting your alarm for 40mins earlier (to allow for time to change clothes etc) and take your ass out for a walk, run, gym sesh, weights session, circuit routine, yoga sesh ... anything that gets your body moving for that first half hour of your day.You may lose 40mins of sleep but you will gain that time back, four times over, in your productivity that day.
2. Buddy Up
Misery loves company? Heck no, happiness loves company! Make your training even more fun by adding a smiling friend to the mix. Plan to meet someone for a workout; make a pledge with someone that you'll both try a-class-a-day for a week; befriend gym junkies! We are living in an age where we can befriend people in the comfort of our homes - motivational accounts are overspillin' in the Insta-sphere and they aim to inspire. Surround yourself with people who embody who you want to be.
3. Reach for the Stars
Set a goal and go for gold baby! Want to compete in Miss Muscles Australia? Want to represent Australia at Rio 2016? Want to run for 15minutes straight, compete in your first triathlon, ride 50km for a cause? Set your sights high and work towards it, every day.
4. Sign Up and Lock It In!!
5. Change it up!
