Working out can be a discouraging process sometimes. When you’re not seeing the results you want when you want them, it can be easy to just give up. But remember that it takes time and effort and to be patient. Here are 5 tips for you to read the next time you’re thinking about throwing in the towel.

  1. Your non-scale victories should be celebrated. I’ve found that the things that excite me the most are the little things — like an old pair of jeans fitting, or willingly choosing the healthy option instead of the more convenient one. Progress is progress, whether it’s losing those 30 pounds or feeling like your workout didn’t totally kick your ass that day!
  2. Work out for yourself- no one else. Do not worry about what you look like, or what other people are thinking of you while you work out. Just do you.
  3. Set your own standard for what being “fit” actually means. Fitness comes in a lot of shapes and sizes. Don’t judge yourself by the standards pop culture has set out there for you.
  4. Lower your chances of skipping a workout by getting it out of the way first thing in the morning. That way you won’t be able to talk yourself out of exercising throughout the day.
  5. Not every day will be a success. It’s okay to have a bad day. Just pat yourself on the back for making it to the gym at all. Tomorrow’s a new day.

And most importantly, just have FUN! You’re getting out there and moving and that’s all that matters. Happy working out!

workout_wednesday

Happy Wednesday everyone! It’s the middle of the week and motivation is scarce and whatever you have left is dedicated to getting through the rest of the week. Trust me, I’ve been there but this leaves no motivation left to get up and be active. Being healthy is so much more than eating right but about taking care of yourself physically and mentally as well. If you can find just an ounce of motivation today, I have here a workout for you that you can easily do at home and with no equipment required. Take 30 minutes out of your day to take care of you, after all you deserve it. Have a fantastic Wednesday everyone
