How to Hustle Back to Exercise and Get Inspired Again – Motivation Made Easy
I know that the gift of teaching information can empower others.
Do you get inspired to work out when you see a well-built body?
Maybe you’re in a rut from training, and maybe you just need a little
It’s hard sometimes. Why? Because, to see results, sometimes it can
take weeks or even several months. Then next thing we notice, we’ve
quit being consistent. We use to go to the gym 5 days a week is now
one time (if we’re lucky”)
What happened? What can you do?
Here are five tips to get you going:
Tip: 1 Create your transformation resource.
Go and read stories from magazine articles and books about different
people with similar weight loss challenges and body structures and use
them as your sources of success information.
You see, we can all learn a productive, success from everyone. We all
leave golden nuggets on our trail that we blaze.
Action step: go to your bookstore newsstand and pick up several health
and fitness magazine and sift and search for inspirational stories.
Again, make sure you can relate to the person – lifestyle and body
You can start your goal/dream book. Find the images of bodies similar
to yours and cut their face out and add yours.
Put it in clear sleeves or paste in your journal. Look at it several
times each day. Write inspirational quotes and notes about it.
Tip 2: Where is the crowd at?
I like to see people around me and be part of a group environment
setting when I can, however, my work outs are customized to my
performance needs, so I don’t mind working out alone.
I noticed a difference in my intensity when I work out at my home gym
versus the health club. I go much harder at the gym.
The people are lifting and moving inspiring me to work out harder. Go
where the crowd is and get inspired by others in the same room working
to make a difference with their bodies. If there isn’t a gym, find a
person locally. Remember many people have the same frustrations and
problems when training on their own. Get in the energy vibration of
others. If there isn’t a gym, start a small community group with
people of common health and weight loss interest.
Tip 3: Do Less Training.
Often we’re told to do more. Do more of this exercise and more of this
set. Do 10 sets of 12 reps. What ever it might be, to get out of that
funk, do less. Get back and just do 1 or 2 reps and access. How do you
feel? If you can add two more reps, do two more. If not, walk away
from the machine. Yes, use your instincts.
Often, you’ll simply feel much better, touching the machine, picking
up that dumbbell or tubing and moving that you’ll do more.
Tip 4: Give the magic of “WHY” a chance
Want to be lean, toned and in shape. Give me the “magical” reasons.
The reasons, your “WHY” will take you back on track to your
This requires you to grab a pen and paper and physically write it
down. Go deep into this one. Say “I’m going to (state your goal) so
that (state your benefits)”
I’m going to lose 15 pounds and lose several inches, fit into my
skinny jeans so that (I can look extremely confident in my clothes)
Write before going to bed to help the goals get re-enforced. Pull out
the biggest “Why” and get back into proactive action.
Don’t skip this step; it’s probably one most powerful tip in this article.
Tip 5: Rejuvenate through teaching.
I mentioned that quote in my office. This method not only helps the
student but the teacher even more. I’ve been teaching my kids all that
I find benefits them, and I’m amazed how repeating these steps out to
someone I find, often that I miss steps if I instead just wrote in
down on a piece of paper.
There are teenee-tiny steps in some task that we do a certain way that
can often be overlooked.
For example, I have a paper shredder machine by my office desk.
It’s plugged in, the power button is on but why is it NOT working.
Little did I know that the door to the unit was ajar slightly and a
sensor activates the machine not to run if found the door to shredder
That’s a small step that I could have overlooked but by doing it by
the show and tell, I find this problem can happen.
By helping through teaching, say, someone to get fit and become
healthier, makes me happier, feel re-energized to reach my own goals.
And listen, if don’t need a degree or certification to help someone.
I hope these tips can help you get unstuck and focused or re-focused again.
