How To Stay Motivated To Workout

How to Stay Motivated to Workout
So I am back, yay! Sorry for disappearing from your feed and your lovely blogs last week. I got a few messages asking if everything was OK and I couldn't be more thankful for your care and love (which you are actually showing me by reading these lines right now). I do have a valid (and very happy) excuse for being MIA because last week my hubby turned big three o and we had an amazing celebration with his friends and family. Then on Wednesday (his actual birth day) we took off for a long weekend to Krakow, Poland. I had to keep it hush hush since he reads my blog (he's amazing!). So now that we are back and I am slowly getting back into normal routine, I had to let you know that I missed you all + I've been working on a number of very exciting posts that I just can not wait to share! Today's post is one of them. 
Have you ever been pretty good or even amazing with your workouts (or diet) and then snap - something happened to your motivation? Either gradually or immediately you find yourself snacking on candy and thoughts about gym make you want to lie down and take a nap. Yup, we've all been there. Since for a number of months I have been neglecting working out and my diet has been all over the place, I've reached the point when it was time to "re-boot" my whole mindset about workouts and clean eating. So I jotted down these fundamental tips that helped me and, I hope, will help you to start and, most importantly, stay motivated to workout and keep going.

This one is as easy as ABC but sometimes it can be forgotten all together. Why am I working out? I guess it just had to be done. *shrug shrug* That's not the best approach and it won't help you to love your workouts and stay fit. The answer must be a lot more definite than that. You have to know where you are going because having that clear goal in your mind will push you to get there. Either it is a photo of a famous fitness guru, the image of those gorgeous skinny jeans 2 sizes smaller or an event which is coming up oh-so-very-soon - all of these reasons can be extremely motivational. Very important: set a goal that is sensible and will not cause any harm to your body or health. Think rationally about the timeline you have. Whatever you use to get yourself started, remember that your ultimate goal is a journey to being fit, healthy, active and happy, not how to lose those 2 extra inches off your waist in under 2 weeks.
Either you opt for working out at the gym or at home, you need to be ready to spend money on a few essentials. You can't go running in your jeans, nor can you do most workouts in the comfort of your own home without a set of dumbbells. To lay it down in detail, investing in cute workout clothes can be uber motivational as you would be looking forward to wearing your beautiful pair of leggings, sports bra, tops and most importantly, appropriate footwear aka good-quality sneakers. There are numerous brands that sell beautiful clothes for your sweat sesh and my 5 most favourite ones would be: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 . Also, you might need equipment for at-home workouts (mat, weights, fitness ball, etc.) or a gym membership if you want to train outside your home. In my personal experience nothing put me in a better workout mood than being at the gym. I mean, you didn't come there to lounge on a treadmill. Therefore, no excuses.
Easer said that done, but you simply need to start! And in order to start, you must get your bum up. Whatever the workout you are going for, you can't really do it sitting at the laptop or chilling on the couch. Yes, there are workouts even for that but that's not why (nor how) you want to reach your goal. If you feel like you're running out of time because of your school/uni/workload, or if you feel exhausted at the end of the day, try getting up earlier to start the day actively and squeeze in that AM sweat sesh followed by a shower. Workout done! You feel happier and energized! Music or a buddy can help you to stay on track as well. The right playlist will keep your head in the game. Knowing that your friend/boyfriend/husband/mum is waiting for you to get up for a morning run, will get you out of the dreamland quicker. It's also fun to set up challenges and "compete" with each other.
This one isn't easy for most of people, including me. I love my chocolate too much! I also enjoy French fries way more than I should. At the same time, eating clean doesn't mean you would only be chewing the broccoli stick or eat nothing but kale. Cleaning up your diet may start with cutting down, not cutting off. Number one thing you need to do is cut down your sugar intake. Saying goodbye to the favourite soda or candy might seem like a torture but eventually your brain will not be asking for it any more, but craving healthy carbs or protein instead. Next, if you belong to a "clean plate" club, start using smaller plates! We often forget about the size of those portions and munch more than our body is asking for. Finally, set up a home for more vegetables and fruit in your fridge. You will be amazed how many delicious healthy recipes are out there, and you won't miss your favourite fast food restaurant menu any more. Even if you try that burger later on after adopting this new way of eating, you will feel the major difference and your brain will send you a signal "Do not take another bite".
I can't even start telling you how important tracking your workouts/diet is. Being your normal planning-addicted girl, I suggest marking dates in the calendar for when you plan to workout. That way you will see it clearly (without any excuses) and it will motivate you to stick to your agenda. If you have a scale, step on it every morning and log your weight into your Weight Diary app. To track what you eat, My Fitness Pal would become your friend (pun intended). It has other amazing features as well. Your step count will easily be recorded by Pacer as well as your active time and the amount of calories burnt. If you are into running or cycling, Strava will track your effort better than anything else. The best part is that all these apps are free. I love them and use them consistently. I am especially obsessed with Pacer. I love my step count way too much! :)
You might think what in the world I am going to tell you under this heading. The most crucial advice I have learned and would like to share with you is to know your limits and be sensible. None of the fad diets will give you the result it promises but it will deprive you of necessary minerals and vitamins, make you starve and, sadly, in most cases, cause serious harm to your health. Who wants to end up in a hospital with a severe condition as a result of a diet? No, thanks. It's not worth it one bit. On top of that, there are also dangerous weight-loss techniques which are even advertised by certain celebrities. What a twisted perception of health and beauty! One of the most recent and extremely hazardous fads is waist training. I'm sorry to say this but Kim Kardashian and a few of her sisters have no idea what they are promoting with those Insta photos. Results of waist training: compressed lungs, crushed organs, fractured ribs. Plus medical experts confirm that it doesn't actually help to achieve any results for the waist! Be smart and ignore insane fads like these.
This is the final and probably the most essential tip. As much as you are trying to push yourself, remember about the importance of rest and relaxation. If you are absolutely physically exhausted or mentally drained, take a little moment to breathe. Go to your gym session tomorrow. Meanwhile, crawl under the blanket with a cup of tea and a funny comedy. Sit down and read a book. Catch up with a friend. And never starve yourself! No matter what age you are, 15, 25 or 35, be sensible. Keep your goal in mind but be good to yourself. In an hour or next day you will have your inner battery recharged and attack the day AND your workouts with enthusiasm :)

Hope you enjoyed this post even if you're not doing any fitness at the moment. 
Maybe it will motivate you to begin :) Most importantly, I hope it will remind all of us that staying healthy is far 
(far far far!!! multiplied by million) more crucial that the figure on your scale, no matter how big or small it is. 

P.S. I will share our weekend recap later on this week with you lovelies ;)

  1. These are some awesome tips and def. ones I could use as I haven't worked out for months. Then again, I have definitely invested in working out with a gym membership and cute clothing but still can't manage to make it to the gym - it's embarrassing!

    1. Eating clean is the worst (or the best, lol, depends which way you look at it) :)
      I find it the hardest part, esp when it comes to sugar aka chocolate treats.
      After a pause it's much more difficult to get back on track but it's doable. Wish I had a personal trainer at my beck and call lol

  4. It sounds like you had a great week! Celebrations are so fun. I hope you got lots of photos.

    I don't think I could ever eat completely clean but I try to be 90/10. I find that having a partner or someone to check in with every day helps keep me accountable. Nothing like a little guilt to get you to your workout. ♡♡

      Oh, having and doing the log helps heaps! It worked wonders for me and I just had to share this tip. Eating clean and working out goes without saying, but running a log (and sticking to it) actually helps you to stay on track and see how far you've come.

That's why I put "Set a Goal" as #1 tips. Don't call yourself a quitter, you are definitely not one.

      Hope you are enjoying your weekend hon. I am posting about our trip + mini Sephora haul tomorrow morning so stayed tuned ;)

  40. NEEDED to read these! I find it so hard to work out in winter or when I’ve come back from a holiday but this post has really upped my motivation. Thanks for sharing! I’ve never thought to bother logging my food intake, probably because I’m too scared to actually see how much crap I’ve eaten but it might just be the thing I need to do. Thanks again for your wisdom Nadia!

    1. I have also sometimes skipped logging my food 'cause I was shocked at the amount of crap/sugar/calories/etc. It does help though! Soon you start to think before putting that unnecessary candy into you :)
      Thanks so much for a lovely comment, Shannon. You are the best.

    1. I know exactly what you mean, Rari! It's sometimes so much nicer to go with the buddy :) I go with my hubby but go to classes by myself because he's not into yoga or pilates lol
