Have you ever finished a workout with the thought, I wish I would’ve stayed put. I’m going to venture out on a limb here and say you leave most workouts so jazzed you did it, because not only are you leaping around with loads of confidence and energy, you’re also set to take on the day with more gumption than you know what to do with. I’m also going to guess this same excitement doesn’t always precede every workout with the same ease. And, that’s okay. You’re not alone. We all have those low energy days where a workout sounds less than appealing and, as a result, we are more apt to sit those days out. But, I am here to gently remind you that our beliefs and thoughts are the catalyst for getting the job done. When we make the decision to incorporate exercise and movement into our lives, it’s important for each of us to know and acknowledge why. If you struggle to make time for working out or are just feeling like you’re experiencing a lull, make a list of 5 reasons why you exercise (i.e.: 1. I feel better when I exercise; 2. I am less stressed when I exercise; 3. I am more confident about my body when I exercise; 4. the more often I do it, the more excited I am about it; 5. I am stronger and more focused when I exercise; etc.). Taking the time to step back and see (on a list) the benefits of exercise wields better results, keeps our momentum up (consistency goes a long way), and encourages us to focus on the positives rather than the negatives.
