Anyone can find a workout routine on YouTube and try it out one time, but the real struggle and challenge is to stick to these routines. Many people have trouble doing this. You cannot do 40 pushups every Sunday and expect to have abs by the end of the month. You have to be willing to put in the effort and push yourself to exercise regularly. You may need to take a day or two off to rest your muscles and give them time to heal but always pick up right where you started when your resting period is over. But this is the main struggle for many people. So it is a good idea to workout different parts of your body each day, so you won’t have to fully stop working out for a few days. For example, if you work out your arms and abs on Tuesday, you can try leg workouts on Wednesday and then again on Thursday do arms and abs. This will allow those parts of our body that we worked out to have a full day of rest, but we will not lose our motivation and get lazy either. Read below to learn more tips such as this to help you stay motivated.
Buy workout gear
This is a very popular way that many people stay motivated. Buying yourself brand new yoga apparel in Hong Kong can be highly motivating because every time you see it you will want to try it on and wear it to your yoga classes or even the gym.
Turn your favorite activities into workouts
Do you enjoy mountain climbing? You can try going to a place that has indoor climbing facilities or if you really enjoy dancing, you can join a Zumba or belly dancing class. Because these are things you enjoy, you won’t dread having to put on your sports bra on a lazy Sunday morning and drive yourself to these classes. In fact, they won’t even feel like workouts.
Plan your meals and set a goal
Do you have a friend’s wedding coming up and you’re one of the bridesmaids? Or is it your own wedding? Do you want to fit into a very specific dress and feel confident and beautiful? You can achieve this by exercising regularly and also eating healthy. You cannot exhaust yourself at the gym or by doing hours of yoga, counting the calories you burn every day just to come home and have a large cheese burger or pizza. Or even fizzy energy drinks. All of these are high in calories and therefore you will not be able to see any results and your hard work will only get wasted. So you must set a goal of how much you will be eating every day, create a meal plan and make sure you are intaking all the essential vitamins and eat a balanced diet. But also set a goal with your workouts, whether that’s being able to run two miles and still not run out of breath or maybe even weigh a certain amount by the end of the year.
