When you don't feel like it | Busting the workout blues.

I don't "feel" like it

We have all been there. The warm pull of your bed beckoning you can to hit snooze and skip your planned workout. I GET IT. Today I went through the same wave of emotion. As excuses started to pop in my head, I snapped out of it and thought - when was the last time you said "I feel fat" , or the last time you felt insecure, the last time you felt depressed? I realized that the more investments I make in my health, the better I feel over all. How I "feel" now, out weighs all feelings of not wanting to get moving and workout. Show up for yourself, I promise you won't regret it.

Tips for busting the workout blues:

1. Make a playlist that pumps you up

Up tempo music has been proven to improve move, and boost energy levels. Put together a playlist that will motivate you to get your workout done. 

2. Invite a friend

I have said it before and I'll say it again. Workout buddies are the best. Invite a friend to do your workout with you. You will be less likely to skip it plus you will get time in with your friend. 

3. Dress for success

Cute workout gear can be just the thing to motivate you for your workout. Put on your favorite workout gear and do your workout in style. 

4. Take progress pics 

Whether you are just getting started or have been grinding for awhile-- progress pictures can be extremely motivating.
