When I need a little motivation I read health and fitness articles and usually within about 3 minutes, I think "I need to stop reading about this when I can go DO this"

Also, to stay motivated while working out, I go to the same level of intensity as the time before, but then intensify it just a little more.

success is a great motivator for me. When I do well, I pump it up a notch.

Listening to my favorite music. I save it specifically for my workouts and that's the first reason I show up. It works!

I'M CONSTANTLY SWITCHING UP MY WORKOUT ROUTINE, LISTENING TO MUSIC GETS ME MOTIVATED, READING QUOTES, OR GIVING MY SELF A LIL PEP TALK!=)

Hello LEXAPAIGE,

I have come to love the way I feel while working out and after the workout. I think of those things to get motivated. My man is also in the habit of reminding me. He likes how it energizes me with positive outlook. Walking, road biking, strength training are my opportunity to celebrate my health and wellness. It helps to take the perspective of appreciation that you CAN workout.

When I was building the workout habit I counted how many days in a row I took my walk and kept going (being consistent) so I would not break that streak. Now you can set a goal here at SparkPeople and your 'streak' is tracked for you. emoticon

I also like to decide on NO EXCUSES sort of resolve and feel the pride of keeping promises I make myself.

Health and Fitness enrich every part of my life and they are true abundance. You are worth it!! Go for it!

What things do you do to help get yourself pumped up and ready to workout? I've tried all types of things and I'm really looking for more ways to try. I really want to get EXCITED about my workouts. emoticon
