Is workout motivation your biggest obstacle when it comes to sticking to your work out and getting results?
Reality is, Motivation takes EFFORT!
Motivation is NOT something that just “happens” to you when you wake up each day.
While making your workouts a priority and keeping them fun can sometimes help – there is a an even more powerful motivator….
Keeping a Workout Log
You already know the impact keeping a food log can have your your nutritional choices – well the same results can be had when you track your workouts!
::Log Your Workouts
The sheer act of writing down your workouts will keep you focused, on track and hold you accountable.
It’s time to stop winging it, stop guessing what to do next and simply going through the motions!
This is the best way to AVOID fat loss results!
Having a clear, purposeful and progressively challenging workout plan in place is the only approach that works!
::Assess your progress & set personal records
What are you getting out of your workouts?
It’s important to keep yourself challenged in order to see continual results. Going through the motions just doesn’t cut it.
Look over your workout journal, assess what you’ve done, and use the information you have in your journal to set small, progressively challenging goals for yourself.
See what works – Do it a Little Better the Next time
See what doesn’t – Change it so it DOES work for you
Achieve heightened motivation as you strive to beat your previous “bests”!
There is nothing more exciting and motivating than seeing how you improve from one workout to the next. As you reach and surpass your personal records – Lo and Behold…Results appear before your eyes!

I just wanted to let you know how much I have appreciated your insights on workouts that you gave us in one of the Fit Club coaching calls…. it has drastically changed the way that I workout!
I used to pull out the workout for the day, slog through it, do the same thing the next time and the time after that.
Ya, I felt like I was getting stronger, and I felt that I was working my body, but it felt like a chore, something that was on my list to check off and then move on with my day.
Now I finish when each workout:
~ I log it
~ I write my thoughts about how it went (what worked, what didn’t)
~ Then I set a goal for myself for the next time I do my workout
When that next workout comes, I pull up my old log, so I can see what I did, what I had problems with last time, and what challenge I had made for myself.
I then begin my next workout with the goal of doing what I had said I wanted to do last time.
This has made the biggest impact on my workouts.
Not only do I now look forward to them!
A major step forward!
I’m not just doing the same workout I did last time, I’m doing a better workout than I did last time.
I’m not only feeling how I’m getting stronger, but I’m seeing it on text as well. I can see what I did last time, and then know what I did this time, and it’s always a bit more, or a bit longer.
Just literally watching myself on text go from only being able to do one set of a move, to doing two sets, then three. Or seeing myself progress from the min reps to the max reps had been the biggest motivation for me to keep at it.
I want to see what I can do next!
I want to set a goal for myself, and then see myself achieve that goal.
I can’t thank you enough for those words of wisdom that changed my mindset on what a real workout should be like!!
