Happy Monday, loves!
You know the saying, never miss a Monday? So well-said, if you ask me. However, I’m not convinced it applies only to workouts. It’s everything.
Personally, if I miss a Monday with anything in my life, I feel as if the rest of the week turns into a big ol’ mess. Whether I sleep in or I miss a workout or I put off something I need to do on a Monday, it throws my entire week off track in about a million ways.
I should really get it together and not let that day dictate my entire life, but I suppose I’m not that mature.
That said, I do like Monday. It’s the January 1st of my life. A fresh start, a new week, a new beginning. Again, I’m not mature enough to do that any other day, apparently. Oh well; we can’t all be perfect, right?
If you’re struggling with the Mondays, I have some advice that might help you find your motivation to never miss a Monday. I’m talking workouts at the moment, but you can take this advice and apply it as needed to any other aspect of your life.
Ask Yourself One Question
How will I feel when I’m done?
Boom. There you go. You’re welcome. I’ve got nothing else for you.
Kidding. Kind of. It’s all you need to do. Sit back, ask yourself how you’ll feel when you’re done, and be honest.
When I ask myself how I’ll feel when I’m doing with a workout, I have one answer – amazing. When I ask myself how I’ll feel if I don’t work out, I have one answer – fat and lazy.
And that’s my main motivation. Ask yourself how you’re going to feel, and then decide how you want to feel. You do realize you’re in control of that stuff, right?
Get it Over With
I like to do things I don’t like to do first. That helps me get them done so that they don’t go to the wayside. It also lightens my mood when I’m doing with something I wasn’t excited about. Not only do I feel accomplished it’s over and done with, I feel so good that I’m done thinking about it for the rest of the day.
Create A Vision Board
What do you want from your life? Put it on a vision board. Every time you feel unmotivated to do what you want to do, put that vision board in front of you and ask yourself if you’re willing to give up what you want for the day or if you’d rather conquer it and take that step to get closer to your goals.
Hold Yourself Accountable
I tell my husband my goals for the day every morning and ask him to please kindly heckle me when I don’t get them done. I ask him to judge me, to make me feel bad, and to give me hell.
He doesn’t. (I mean, what a meanie).
But, telling him makes me more accountable because then I feel as if I have to do it or I make myself feel like a failure in his eyes (not that he would ever make me feel that way). Tell someone. Post it on social media. Do something to hold yourself accountable so you don’t let someone else down.
Make Like Nike
Just do it. Come on. You’re a bad ass motherfucker. Now get it done.
