Find What Motivates You


“80 percent of success is showing up.” -Woody Allen

How do you find the motivation to exercise when you just don’t feel like getting up off your butt? I ask myself this questions every now and then, and I have a feeling that I’m not the only one.

There are numerous ways to motivate yourself to exercise, a million. But everyone is different. Something that motivates one person may not motivate another. I’m going to share my top 5 motivators that have worked for me and, hopefully, a few will work for you!

  1. How you feel after a workout. This has to be my top motivator. I feel great, amazing, strong, sexy, and invincible after a workout. It’s high that I’ve become addicted to. I let that high serve as my motivation for the next time. “You know how good you’re going to feel, Jill!”
  2. YOU time. Many of us spend our days taking care of things- at our workplace, our home, our children, our families. Most of us lead such busy lifestyles that we forget to take care of ourselves!Ā  A workout lets you spend time taking caring of you… for you! It should be a priority!
  3. Fitness Blogs. I often read fitness blogs if I feel like I need extra motivation. Other people’s success inspires me. Plus, it is a great way to acquire new exercise tips and tricks.
  4. Exercise Classes. Sometimes it’s hard to motivate yourself to go to the gym alone. I find it easier to get out of the house if I know I have to be at an exercise class at X time. I also find the instructors and/or individuals in my exercise class to be extreme motivators!
  5. Motivational Quotes. I like to print them out in pretty fonts and colors and hang them on my wall, use them as a background on my cellphone, desktop, or under a fridge magnet.

So, what motivates you? Please share!

    There is always two ways: either YES or NO, either I do some sports or not. It’s good to think about it and preapre a balance sheet writing down profits and losses. However, it must be done in writing, not in the head, because when your eyes see how much you lose by avoiding exercises, you get power and motivation immediately. It works, I promise šŸ™‚
