9 ways to get (and stay) motivated (plus a video to make you giggle)

9 ways to get (and stay) motivated (plus a video to make you giggle)
I get asked all the time:

“How do you stay so motivated?”

Fact: I don’t! …. So I work at it! 

Motivation is like a muscle – the more you flex it, the stronger it becomes.

But what do you do to get your motivation “muscle” in shape in the first place?

You find ways to intentionally keep yourself motivated!

I’ve put together a list of proven ways to build motivation right into your healthy habits.

1. Make it fun! Try a new recipe. Do a new workout (working with a fitness pro is a no-brainer for this one!). Listen to your favorite music. Challenge yourself to try one new fruit or veg a week.

2. Set a goal that gets you psyched. Sign up for a fun run. Go for a weekend mountain biking getaway. Try a new recipe every week for three months. Sign up for a dance or take a pickleball lesson.

3. Make it part of your routine. Park farther away from your destination. Take the stairs. Go for a lunchtime walk outside. Work out as soon as you wake up in the morning. Hit the grocery store first thing on a weekend morning.

4. Create a journal. Document your progress: What did you do today that was great? What are you planning to do tomorrow? Write it down – and also write down how you feel about it.

5. Set up a reward system! Internal rewards: Be sure to tell yourself “good job” every time you follow through on your commitments to yourself. (It really does matter.)
External reward: Set milestones and then reward yourself (new shoes, new gear, massage, etc.) for reaching them.

6. Build a solid support and accountability circle. Find a supportive friend or group that will keep you moving forward. Working with a coach is invaluable here! (This is why most people hire me!)

7. Motivate somebody ELSE! Motivating others is incredibly motivating for YOU. How do I know? Well, let’s just say I am writing this email and it’s getting me psyched about my own [workout/meal prep/etc.]

8.  Start the day off right. When you start your morning with a healthy meal or workout, it can set the tone for the entire day!

9. Work with a pro. There is nothing more motivating than seeing – and feeling – a noticeable difference in how you feel, move, and look! 

My 28-Day Total Body Transformation program is a great place to start. Especially if you’re a woman over 40 dealing with stubborn belly fat and always putting everyone else's needs before your own and you want to see if my 28-Day program could help you get visible results in just 28 days, book a call to see exactly what the process looks like for you and if it’s the right fit for your goals.

The Magic Formula for Success....

The Magic Formula for Success....
Are you ready for the secret to body transformation success? (This secret actually contributes to almost EVERY kind of success.)
 
It’s that the BASICS will get you (at least) 90% of the results you are looking for!
 
The quality & quantity of foods you eat … how much & what kind of movement you do every day … how much sleep you get …  how much stress you’re under.
 
They all add up to SUCCESS.
 
“The big secret in life is there is no secret. Whatever your goal, you can get there if you’re willing to work.” – Oprah Winfrey.
 
The best thing about all of this is this: every single one of the basics impacts the OTHER basics.
 
They work synergistically to not only help you FEEL BETTER, but also reach your goals.
 
This is what I’m talking about (just one example!):
 
  • When your nutrition is dialed in …
  • You have more energy to exercise, which helps
  • Boost your mood and relieve stress, which makes it easier to 
  • Get a good night of sleep, which helps
  • Balance important hormones that help you stay feeling full & satisfied, which
  • Makes it easier to keep your nutrition on-track.
  • And around it goes!
Getting your basics in line helps you feel vibrant, focused, refreshed, and motivated.
 
In fact, if you’re NOT feeling those things, it’s a sign that at least one of your “basics” is out of whack.
 
What steps can you take TODAY to cover your basics? 
 
It really does make all the difference – especially when you’re at a sticking point in your program.

Tuesday Tip: Small details create big results!


Do you lift weights? Did you know that it's scientifically proven that if you put your mind into the muscle and really focus on the muscle you are working that you will get better results? How about breathing? Do you ever catch yourself holding your breath when lifting weights? It's so important to learn to breathe correctly while exercising. The timing will help you avoid injuries, keep your blood pressure down, and allow you to get through those final reps safely.

Got questions? Shoot me an email or text!
