I've found myself in a motivation danger zone this week. As a regular exerciser I try to complete at least five exercise sessions per week, but I've been dealing with a motivation gap this week. Don't get me wrong, I don't think I have to feel motivated to exercise day in and day out. It can be a good thing to take a little break. After taking a break for a day or two I often feel renewed and am raring to go. That's not the case this week. I'm definitely in a motivation danger zone.
I went looking for some some advice and suggestions for overcoming this lack of motivation from other exercisers. Here are some suggestions from other exercisers that work for them. Do any of these ideas work for you?
4. Write it down.
Keep a daily record of the number of minutes you are exercising, your distance, your weight, or whatever measure may be important to you.
This becomes your report card. Post it where you can see it. A regular black and white reminder will help to keep you going.
And finally...This one made me laugh....
