So here is how I stay motivated to go to the gym and keep healthy. I have a set of rules I created for myself, and they go like this:
- Always go to the gym on Monday (I go 4-5 days a week)
- Never let more than 2 days go by without going to the gym...once day 3, then 4 hit of no gym I am out of my routine
- Always work out in the morning
- 30 min is better than 0 min!
- Always push myself that little harder...if I am already at 15 reps, whats another 3??
- Keep a record of what you are doing
- Look at your upcoming week and schedule in gym time
These are my rules, make your own or use mine as a guideline. I find having these rules inplace it keeps me on my toes and holds myself acountable. If you have any good 'rules' let us know!
