Exercise is something we all need to do. But it may not go correctly all the time. We might start - feel we’re getting nowhere and then just give up. When that happens, what we need is a bit of remotivation.
We need to do something that’ll make us get up and get back on the exercise path. Sometimes remotivation happens spontaneously when we just have the urge to exercise. Sometimes the worst needs to happen to us - we put on weight and no longer look like our ideal weight. Sometimes we just have to have some near-death experience to start rebuilding our ideal life. Sometimes a simple stock take on our life and ideal look is all it takes.
Here are three steps:-
1. Take stock of where you are. Answer questions such as how do you look now and is it how you wish to look? Where do you want to lose weight? Where do you want to gain weight? Where do you want to build muscles? What have you done so far and how do you look?
2. Devise some realistic goals. Within 4-6 months, where do you want to see yourself? Where do you see the muscles and what do you look like? How healthy are you and what does it feel like?
3. Come up with creative ways to achieve those goals. Make a list of things you could do, have or be in order to get remotivated with your health and fitness goals.
Here are three ideas to pick yourself up again:
Set up a reward system. Come up with BIG rewards - rewards that will literally blow you away like a big vacation, a shopping spree, a weekend away, a spa retreat, whatever it is that takes your fancy. Give yourself these rewards once you reach a particular milestone that you set.
WHY. Answer the why for your goals and you’ll have bigger emotional wants to get up and take action. That’s what Tony Robbins says: come up with as many reasons as you can for wanting to achieve your goals.
Create your fitness playlist. I like how iTunes have created fitness playlists so you could download them and listen through them when you’re exercising.
