Staying fit has always been a struggle for me. I want to be in good shape, and I want to exercise, but it’s so easy to fall off the wagon.
Over the last few years, I’ve taken a much greater interest in fitness and nutrition. I’ve successfully completed several races, including two 10K runs. The adrenaline rush you get after any race is indescribable and it makes you want to train harder and run more. So…what’s my problem?
My issue has always been consistency. I find that I’ll have a few really good months, where I’ll workout regularly and see improvement in my strength and speed. Then, something will come up in life – I’ll get busy with work, school, etc and put fitness on the back burner. Once I realize that it’s been a while since my last workout, I start feeling discouraged and unmotivated. It’s so frustrating to feel like you’re starting from scratch, especially when you physically can’t do something you used to be able to do.
The only real way to overcome these feelings is to literally get back on the horse. Just go for a run and suck it up. Yes, the time will be slower. Yes, the distance with be shorter. Deal with it.
Of course, the best way I know how to seek motivation is through cute clothes and accessories. It’s sad, but true! While I work on my new fitness plan, I wanted to share some cute workout gear that’s caught my eye recently. All of these pieces are gym clothes you can wear out. Win, win!
