When you don't feel like working out, what motivates you?
Wednesday, April 04, 2012
There are some days where I don't feel like working out or I feel like stopping in the middle of my workout. Music is my main motivation. I usually listen to Michael Jackson's music because he is my favorite artist and a lot of his songs are fast. Usually once I start working out I forget all about that I don't feel like working out, BUT some days I need extra motivation. On those occasions I usually listen to "Bad" over and over again until I feel that I am bad enough and nothing can't stop me until I finish this workout! It works! Once I finish, I always feel good!
How about you? What's your motivation during a tough workout or a tough day?

I have to have my ipod or I would never make in through a workout. I have my first personal trainer appointment at the gym tonight. Hoping I do not get tortured too much since I only started back at the gym this week. I will succeed this time around.

When I don't feel like working out, it is basically determination that gets me through. Ha ha. I just tell myself over and over that I will enjoy it once I actually get going. Or, I start out doing something I really like, such as my wii fit, and go to the harder stuff from there.
