    Would love feedback on what motivates y’all to work out. What do you do to get yourself to “just do it” !Especially when life is difficult!

    Hello Melissa. I’ve always had problem making a workout schedule but when I thought about it, I think I used to keep planning and thinking too much because of which it didn’t come naturally to me..So what I personally did was to stop thinking completely about it and just start taking action & working out..I workout almost 25-30 minutes a day now and it feels natural and fits in my schedule.

    So you just do it anytime that’s convenient when you feel like it ? Does something motivate you each day ? Once I get into the habit of something , I find it relatively easy to do on autopilot. I think it’s the starting after stopping for awhile because of life circumstances that makes it more difficult. I have found in the past that having a group of people to start a program or any working out together and check in for support and accountability has been the most successful for me in the past… but I love more ideas on this especially when you don’t have the support !

    For me, it has always been a tuning into, or connecting. I can “want” to workout or exercise or be active but I will make excuse sand justify my non-action. I either have looked deep and inside and got that “it’s time” feeling and that jump started me or, I have just woken up one day type of thing and feel “it” there.

    Jackie , I can relate .
    It’s funny because when I stop for any period of time and then start up again , I am always asking myself why did I ever stop ! And of course you have to go through all the new muscle aches and pains again when you have not done it in awhile . At least there is “muscle memory “!!! God gifted us with that one ! 😆
