If you belong to a gym or fitness club you have probably noticed that Mondays are always busier than Fridays, not to mention the first days of the month or the year. It seems like everybody wants to start the week/month/year in the right direction. I know about this because I have done it. Many times I have promised myself that next Monday I will start (yet again) my exercise routine.
What happens in the middle of the week? Why do we slack after a couple of days? One simple word: MOTIVATION.
Life is hard and we have all these other things to take care of everyday (cooking, blogging, work, family, friends, etc) that most times exercising falls to the bottom of the list. Even though exercise has been part of my life for several years, many times it is very difficult to find the motivation to get off my butt and move (hence the 10 pounds I need to lose) So instead of writing about how NOT to motivate yourself I made a google search and found interesting articles about this topic.
I just want to mention that my favorite motivation to exercise is finding out that my 32″ waist jeans are too tight now. What’s your own motivation to work out?
