7 WAYS TO STAY MOTIVATED

Tuesday, August 14, 2018

Happy Tuesday my lovely readers!

I'm a day late posting on my blog but better late than never, right? I have been feeling so down these past few weeks and emotional so that's been quite a ride! I feel like I've lost some of my motivation and I would be lying if I told you it was easy to get back on track. It's hard y'all! I was doing so good once I got back home but now it's, I guess, catching up to me! 

Motivation is such an amazing thing, the world would be such a better place if we all spread positivity and motivation! I know, so cliche! But so true! 



So for today's post I wanted to share a 7 things I like to do to stay motivated! I am no "life expert" but these things have helped me to get my mind & motivation back on track! I hope y'all enjoy!

1) Remember why you started- This one is definitely the one that keeps me in check! Lol but really! Every time I want to give up on my goals whether it's a fitness goal, financial or a career goal, just remember why you started in the first place. For me, I wanted to lose weight and tone my body, I wanted this for myself because I didn't feel attractive, and it was affecting my mood, and I just wasn't in a good place, and I start to think back on all those things and it just motivates me to keep pushing forward. 

2) Who are you doing it for- Another way I stay motivated is I ask myself, who am I doing this for? My obvious and only answer is, my son. Again, feeling unattractive and moody all the time because I didn't feel good, affects my mood, and that affects my parenting. I want to always give Julian my best and if I didn't push myself forward I wouldn't be giving him that. 

3) Take before and after pictures- Pictures!! Take a ton of them!! Especially if you're on a fitness journey, it's AMAZING to look back at where you started and to look at yourself now! Trust me on this one! 

4) Unplug from social media- This is something that we should ALL be doing at least for an hour! And the best time to do it is first thing in the morning! Unplugging from social media is so refreshing, take some time off and focus on the real world, on your goals, write down whatever is on your mind, and jot down the things that motivate you, the things you can work on, etc! 

5) Surround yourself with motivation- Now that I'm officially an adult lol I know how important it is to surround yourself with the things and people that make you happy and motivate you to do better! Find these things and keep them close, you don't ever want to be around negativity, there is enough of that in this world. 

6) Don't let a bad start put you off- Just because you had a bad start DOES NOT mean you will end "bad", Learn from it and keep moving forward. I will give you a perfect example, last week I started  bad eating habits, I was having burgers, pizza, fries, day after day lol and my body was not liking it! But this week I told myself I will do better and get back on track, and so far I'm doing good!  You're going to have bad days, and just need to learn and move forward. 

7) Think of the end result- It ALWAYS motivates me to think about the end result, no matter what your goal is, it's always satisfying to daydream about the future, I love to imagine how happier I would feel and look if I keep working out and improve my eating habits, I love to imagine how my life would be like if I keep my blog up and give it my best! 

I hope y'all enjoyed this short but sweet post! There are so many other things that I do to keep me motivated so I will definitely be doing another post! Thank you so much for stopping by! And for your support, it means the world to me!
