I must remind myself of this daily. I, personally, do not look forward to going to the gym. I mean it is not the worse thing once I actually get started, but it seems making myself go to the gym is the hardest part. I would much rather go home after a long day at work than go to the gym.
Everyday when I leave work I turn up the music, dance and sing while driving to the gym, this helps me get a positive attitude and ready for a good workout. Once I get there I try to keep my attitude on a positive note rather than “this sucks” note. When I start to get tired or sore, I remind myself why I am doing it and push myself to keep going.
Also, I reward myself after every workout with a pure protein shake my gym makes. They are amazing in every way, so my taste buds think I’m getting a delicious sweet smoothie when I’m actually getting protein to help the muscles I just worked out.
PS. I did legs yesterday so that means today I feel like I can barely walk.
What do you reward yourself with something for all your hard work? How do you prepare yourself for the gym? Tell me about it.
