For me, I've found that when I dedicate a space to working out and I include many different things to do, I am more eager to work out because I have options to choose from that will be fun, no matter what mood I am in!
Currently, I have my space in the basement and here I have various sized weights, a punching bag, a belly dancing workout video, and a yoga kit! I pick whichever activity I am eager to do that day, and go with the flow! I stop when I don't feel into it anymore (a personal thing of mine so I start to look forward to my workouts, instead of dreading them).
I find having many different options and not a "set" workout helps me be more motivated to do something, anything active! Of course, everyone will be different, but if you are having a hard time getting into a workout, try getting different outlets!
Just this pass Saturday, I actually went roller skating at a rink instead of my usual basement workout, and it was so great! Very fun and lots of cardio!
I tend to end my entire workout with a quick paced walk around the neighborhood with my dogs and, when I get back, a balanced protein-sugar snack (like bananas with peanut butter) to both rejuvenate my body and reward myself for the hard work!
Ideally, I would have the workout space somewhere visible (to beat out of site-out of mind), but I have made it a habit to workout after school on days that I don't have work. Has anyone else found success by something else?
