Motivation Monday

I am aspiring to be a personal trainer and nutrition coach for women. I almost have enough saved up to take my certification course and soon will start saving for my degree in exercise sciences. As a fitness/health enthusiast (and hopefully professional one day), I am constantly looking for motivation and new routines.

I'm starting a "Motivation Monday" series. Not sure yet if this will be a link up, but you can join in if you want! The more the merrier.

Basicailly, in a nut shell, this is just a day dedicated to giving myself (an whoever else finds inspiration) motivation for the workout week ahead. I will be posting anything and everything regarding health and fitness.

Personally, I love working out and running. With that said, I still find have days where the motivation lacks and it's hard to find the drive. I just remind myself it's worth the work and I will feel so much better after the workout.

Eating right is definitely the hardest obstacle for me. I am a huge sugar feign and am always down to snack.. on junk. I love greasy, fatty foods and would eat it all day every day if I could. I love veggies and fruits too, hell, I just love eating in general. But the sticking to healthy foods part is what gets me.

One thing I love is signing up for races. It helps to motivate me to work towards something. I love the feeling of training for a goal and reaching it. I love the feeling of getting stronger during your training and seeing results. That in itself is enough motivation to keep you going. Almost addictive.

All in all, I think it'll be nice to look back onto my post from Monday every week when I am in need of motivation. Join in if you'd like!

Do you find it hard to get motivated sometimes?

I've been signing up for races for motivation too! I'm not a fan of running, but I love the feeling I get afterward, so that's what keeps me going.
Good luck on your career path - that sounds amazing.

This is great and definitely something I will enjoy every Monday! I am really working hard to make the most of my workouts and give my eating habits a make over but it is always a challenge!

I absolutely agree that signing up for runs is awesome motivation. I also like having a health magazine (like Fitness or Self) subscription b/c for WHATEVER reason... that helps keep me motivated. THe hardest part for me is winter when my favorite veggies and fruits aren't available or are way too expensive :-( Then I turn to comfort food (queue Mac and Cheese).

I love this! You are going to be an amazing personal trainer/motivator. I can't wait to read more motivation every Monday!

I am totally struggling with motivation right now. I felt so good when I was working out, but I just can't get up off of my incredibly comfortable couch to do it. I think part of it is that I just want to relax and enjoy myself...even though I'll have less time when school starts again.

I think you'll be a great personal trainer! :)

I am not a fast runner but I do enjoy running on the beach. The sound of the waves and the smell of the ocean is so relaxing. That's what keeps me running in the mornings. I do like do fun runs like mudruns and try to sign up for them as much as I can.

That's awesome about becoming a personal trainer! I am looking into getting my sports certification done soon and really want to do the personal trainer certification too!

Hi Tarole, visiting from the Monday hop. I really liked this last image. So true! Pushing yourself is hard, but oh so worth it!
