How was your w/e?
Are you ready for the week ahead?
Are you struggling?
Does curling up in a ball sound amazing right now?
To be honest, last Thursday I was definitely feeling the ball curling action – yes ME.
Most PT’s won’t admit this and I imagine it’s hard to tell from all their social media posts making it look like they NEVER struggle but here’s a little secret.
We have ‘off’ days too and I’m not ashamed to say it.
But here’s the awesome part of suffering from that CBA syndrome (can’t be ar*ed).
Last Thursday I went from:
Having a sore head.
Not up for running at ALL.
Having a rather enjoyable run.
Experiencing an incredible sense of achievement.
Buzzing and feeling like a boss : )
NEVER underestimate the power of exercise.
And you know what?
It’s OK to not be excited before your workout.

7. Use The POWER of Imagination.
Each time you feel yourself wanting to get into that fetal position and give up, IMAGINE you’ve reached your ultimate goal.
How do you LOOK?
How do you FEEL?
What’s your life like?
Is it worth it?
8. Go To Bed At A Decent Time & Sleep in a Batcave.
Lack of sleep = Lack of energy = Lack of motivation!
It’ll also mess with your hormones and send your food cravings into OVERDRIVE.
Make you moody, affect your energy, your looks, AND prevent your body’s ability to burn fat and, and, and, and…
Bottom line, sleep should be a PRIORITY.
All those tips will take you minimal effort but hey, a little bit of effort can go a LONG way!!
