I got my elliptical on Monday night, and this past week I worked out 4 times for 30 minutes each. I got little bouts of "I don't wanna" but I remembered something I saw on an MTV Made show recently: "Sometimes you have to do stuff you don't want to, to get what you want." Corny I know, but it motivated me. So I dragged myself on there and just did it, even at 3am (I work nights). This week I felt great and really proud of myself.
What do you guys do for motivation to work out?
Awesome, getting your elliptical! Very very cool that you've keep yourself motivated and keeping up with it. Those are a couple of the hardest things. What do I do for motivating myself to workout? To hop on the scale and see the pounds dropping, that's plenty of incentive for me! Plus, after a while, since I'm going on a month straight, it just becomes habit and a part of your day, especially doing it everyday. Without even thinking about it, I go to the gym, and there's only 1 day that I skipped, not b/c I wanted to, but didn't get back here til later, and was too tired. But only missing 1 day in about 3 and a half weeks, isn't a biggie. Keep it up girl!!! :)
