Where do you find your motivation to stay fit? It’s easy to get sidetracked when you are a mom. You’re always being pulled to take the kids to school, extra curricular activities, and barely have time to breath by yourself. So what motivates you? Is it the way you look? The way you feel? Is it your health that motivates you?
For me, I’m motivated by my husband! He has been working out consistently for almost 2 years now and the results are fantastic. He looks great, he feels great, and he’s pushing himself to new levels physically. Last month he even completed his first triathlon.
I’m also motivated by my kids. My son is active in karate (taekwondo actually) and is on his way to becoming a black belt. My daughter isn’t active in any actual classes yet but she loves to move and grove with us. She likes to imitate what we do – and she has a mean push up!
My friends motivate me too. A large group of our friends are into running. I’ve never been much of a runner but it’s something I keep telling myself to DO!
I’m actually signed up to run two different 5Ks this year. The first one is the BlogHer 5K, this one is just for fun really and I don’t plan on running much. I honestly haven’t practiced much (um…at all) so I’m not sure how long I’ll be able to actually run. Last night I got tricked into signing up for a Mud Run 5K in the fall with some girlfriends of mine. Not only will I have to run but there are obstacles and lots and lots of MUD! Sounds fun enough, right?
But what actually motivates you to train and stay fit? I just can’t get myself motivated enough to go beyond the 2-3 days a week I’m going to kickboxing class. Plus this week I’ve been sick and haven’t been able to work out. Next week….I promise…I’ll start next week! (Do you believe me? No, me neither!)
So help me out….tell me what gets you motivated!
