We've all been there. I'm sure most people start off the new year with improving their physical fitness/exercising as one of their goals. Last month I worked out a total of four times, and only two of those times included a visit to a free gym that I walk by daily. Even typing that out is sad. While it can be easier to look at all we don't do, I'm getting into the practice on using my "wins" as motivation to do more. While I've yet to develop the weekly gym routine, I managed to find one upper body exercise that I really like. Small victory! After stumbling across this very inspirational video, I found this video with a simple shoulder exercise that you can do in the comfort of your own home. Sometimes it's hard to find the motivation to do things we want to do or know that we should do, but once you get started it get's easier to keep going. Remember: it's ok to start small. I'm proud of the burn that I've been feeling with my little two pound weights over the past week. If the full body workout isn't working for you right away, just pick one area to work on until you become more consistent then add on more.
How do you motivate yourself to "just start"?
I'd love to hear about some of your fitness goals and routines!
Have a great weekend, and remember "it's not how you start but how you finish!"
