Why do you work out?
“I want to lose 10 pounds for my wedding”
“I want to have a six pack for vacation”
“I will be eating a ton of food this weekend when I travel”
Yes, those are reasons for working out. But, we encourage you to find a bigger “why”- short term goals are great motivators, but often once we’ve accomplished that goal we fall out of our habits again.
So, what is truly your why underneath it all? There should be a specific, meaningful motivation behind your workouts. Maybe you want to have better energy to keep up with your kids, maybe you want to be strong enough to lift up and play with your grandkids.
If you’re not sure where to start, try answering these questions below to start you on your path:
- How do you want to feel?
- Who are you doing this for?
- What makes you feel proud or accomplished?
Define your why and then write it down somewhere you can see it. Maybe it’s on a post-it note in your bathroom. Maybe it’s in your Reminders App on your phone. Maybe it’s in a daily journal.
Then, write out your schedule on a Sunday and find a few days for a 30-45 minute workout. This way you plan for your workout days all week instead of feeling rushed to try to fit it in at the last minute.
What ever your “why” is, we support you and can’t wait to see you at Transcend!
