What's The POINT?

April 4, 2016

 

WHY WHY WHY?

I am asking you why do you exercise?  What motivates you to start, to get off the couch to move, to put down the giant bag of chips and go to class?

 

​​

To be honest with you readers, I used to be motivated by personal wellness and the scale- oh and that I could fit into smaller dress sizes.  Now I am not going to lie, I am motivated to win.  So when I am struggling to finish, I simply tell myself, you have done this so many times before.  As you know it hasn't always been easy.  I developed a secret to getting through my long workouts when it's hard.  (Believe me it's still hard many times) When I am struggling to get up a hill or through a swim, I pick an object like a pole, a bush, mailbox anything...and tell myself- just make it to that and then you will be okay.  Of course, I know I have further to go but it works.  Often I try to pick crests of hills so that at least I can breathe easier.  I have pushed beyond what I thought I could on numerous occasions this way. 

 

 

If I am going to be completely honest, I have made it through many a triathlon thinking about what I deserve to eat when I am done.  Of course, I don't generally feel like eating it when I am done.  But I have thought of everything from chocolate bars, chips, to strips of bacon.  Whatever it takes to make me keep moving forward!

So as I sit here, on a snowy day in APRIL, trying to work up my motivation to get on the bike trainer AGAIN, share what gets you motivated.
