7-Day Summer Shape-up, Day 7: Stay Motivated

Posted by   + Show Post

Staying motivated is half the battle of losing weight -- at least for me. I have a tough time working out without music, so I'm forever updating my playlist. (Not gonna lie, "Sexy and I Know It" is a staple!) Thinking of Olympic athletes who train super hard motivates me to get up in the morning to work out. I even use mantras like "no pain, no gain," or think about the buzz I'll have -- all day! -- after a great workout.

Here are a few ideas that might come in handy when you're feeling less than motivated:

How about you? What's always on YOUR playlist? What motivates you to work out or eat right, even when it's the last thing you feel like doing? Please share!

It's a tough one. I pretty much workout by my self so its hard to get any motivation. I look at my self to get motivated or if I don't feel good then I try to work out and see if that helps. I am trying to get rid of this pregnancy weight off of me, was hopping before the summer but looks like its going to be tough.

I turn on music in the morning and it gets me moving.

 Staying motivated for me is all about seeing my goals and working towards them. I want so badly to achieve what I've set out to do. I just need to keep that in my sights.
