Anytime we start something new, it’s exciting. We are ready for a change and it’s important enough to us. That “High” feeling will never last indefinitely, and tends to start to go away after the first week. Two things you need to do to keep that motivation… First start by examining (and re-examining) your why. If your why is important enough, the how doesn’t matter.

Second, keep in touch with your coach and our support group. Feel like you’re doing this on your own? Most people will break by quitting on themselves. They don’t have anyone around to keep the motivated, kick them in the butt when they need it, so it’s so much easier to quit.

Motivation comes AFTER you put in the work. It’s not the other way around. You feel motivated after you see and feel progress, and after you feel like you’ve accomplished something big… Like starting your day right.

Give it a shot and let me know how you feel.

Above all, stay safe.

P.S. I recently added a podcast where I share a bit more about motivation, so that we can keep the feeling flowing.  Check it out below.

    That’s exactly what motivates me. My progress; three and a half inches and 20 pounds. I don’t want to lose what I’ve gained. I even have partial guns! I’m afraid if I have a rest day I’ll be total flab again!
