HEALTH & FITNESS: 6 WAYS TO STAY MOTIVATED

for blog - VCD

1. Start small 

Don't try to run 30km the first day. Start small. If you're like me and you really dislike running then go for a short run and then do a lot of walking as well. Try to remind yourself why you're doing it. Running feels like torture (to me) but when I'm really anxious, I just know that the exercise is going to help me feel better and look better so I keep going.

2. create your own 'health/fitness' Pinterest board 

My fitness board is full of workouts that I refer to very often! I also have some nice quotes to keep me motivated like the one above. I think it's a great reminder to stay calm and focused. 

3. stay zen

Try to incorporate a little yoga, meditation or just simple quiet stretching. Just for a moment, forget everything around you and take some nice deep breaths. Anxiety can be terrible and I'm definitely an emotional eater. Find other ways to soothe yourself.

4. be patient

You're probably not going to lose a very noticeable amount of weight each day but don't give up! Eating well and exercising = worth it. Trust me. I just got back from a work out and I feel so energized and good.

5. smile

Stay positive and don't forget to smile. You've decided to make a change, stick with it, you're halfway there already. There's a reason to smile! 

6. do something every day

They say we should exercise at least 3 times a week but try to do little things every day as well: taking the stairs instead of the elevator, going for a walk after dinner, remembering to drink 8 glasses of water during the day, getting on the floor and doing a 1 minute plank at random times during the day, listening to Shakira and dancing your ass off for 10 minutes!
