How to get motivated?
Hi guys I wonder how you get motivation to stay in the line of training?by: khemsmtl
I'm 61 and was having some hip pain. My doctor said either lose about 100 lbs or plan on hip surgery. I'm a pastor in a local church and several of my seniors have had hip surgery. Knowing what is involved in the recovery process, it was a no-brainer decision. Daily Burn is the easier and less intensive route!
For me, it's hard! I just take it one day at a time. I don't worry about yesterday's work out or tomorrow's work out, just today's.
I try to go with the Nike "Just Do It" or the P90 "Just Push Play." I find that I have about 1000 excuses for not working out on a daily basis, but if I just get started all the excuses go away. Motivation is less important for me than just getting up and going. If I start, I end up finding the energy to finish.
You don't have to feel like you have to have a perfect workout every day. Some days you'll be able to bring it and others not so much. If you don't have time for a long workout, do a short one. If you don't feel like you can go at full tilt, do an easier workout or stretch. But when I miss my workout altogether, I feel worse for it--my energy level is down and I feel blah.
