(Even when I’m not feeling it)
1. Remind me how good I feel after I move my body. The more consistent you prioritize your fitness, the more tuned in you’ll be to how much better you feel when you do. This can be hard in the beginning when you are establishing your fitness routine, but hang in there!
2. Set a goal to move for just 15 minutes. Whether you lack time or motivation, mentally committing to a short workout is so much more doable! Being consistent with small chunks of time adds up to reaching your goals. I created my Britsbarre Express classes with this in mind.
3. Give myself permission to take it easier on tired days. Not every workout has to be “your best” or your all-out effort. Some days you need to move your body. This was key for me during pregnancy and that first year postpartum when I was always exhausted.
4. Get started even if I’m not in the mood– I almost always leave my workout in a better mood! At the end of the day, it comes down to discipline and committing to *yourself.* You don’t always have to feel it to do it.
5. Invite a friend or family member to work out with you. Working out is always more fun when you have a buddy for moral support and to hold you accountable!
You got this.
