Monday Motivational

I’ve talked about how to get motivated, but keeping that motivation can be a challenge, too.

There are days when you just don’t want to go to the gym.  I know, me too!  But don’t let that one day turn into another, and yet another.  Before you know it, those days add up to a week and maybe even a solid month.  The more time you take off, the less motivated you’ll be to start back up again.  Ugh.

One thing that keeps me going, even when I don’t wanna–

–is the thought of having to do work that I’ve already done before.  Huh?  Yeah, I know, let me explain . . .

Let me preface this by saying, I don’t like wasting my time, and I particularly hate doing things over again.  So with that said, I’ve done tons of work in the gym to get to where I am, and if I quit, I’ll undo all the hard work I’ve done already.

No, my muscles won’t atrophy in a week, or even a month, but I don’t really want to lull myself into a false sense of security either.  I know it’s a very real possibility that if I take off from the gym for too long, it could become a regular thing.  Then all the hard work I’ve put in will have been for nothing.

Am I advocating going to the gym 7 days a week, never taking a day off?  Of course not.  Nor am I advocating being so regimented that you don’t have a life outside of the gym.

Quite the opposite, in fact.  Make your gym schedule and try to stick to it as best you can.  But if something comes up–

–sometimes you gotta loosen the reigns a little.  Just don’t let the horse run away with your cart of gym motivation.

What keeps you coming back to the gym for more???
