Start Without Motivation

“The momentum of continuous action fuels motivation, while procrastination kills motivation.” – Steve Pavlina

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard “How do you find the motivation?” in reference to my health and fitness routine. The answer…I don’t! 😲 I don’t magically find motivation like it’s a hidden coin in a video game. I create it for myself! 

You see, if you wait around for motivation to happen or to just ‘feel like’ working out or ‘feel like’ eating healthier…you are never going to start living a healthier lifestyle. We have to motivate ourselves. That means taking that really hard first step to just START. 

Because motivation doesn’t occur out of thin air. Motivation occurs from momentum. If you have ever had a health and fitness routine, you know what I mean. The first few days working out or eating from a meal plan are HARD. But once you start, you create the momentum to keep going. You start to feel stronger, healthier, lighter, more energetic, less stressed…and that is what motivates you to keep going. 👌

So that’s it. Just start. 🤷‍♀️ Start even when you don’t feel like it. Start without motivation. Start even though it’s hard. Get the ball rolling, and watch it snowball into all the motivation you need to keep going! 🤩

Sharing Your Journey

This journey (for this month) is coming to end. We just have a couple days left and we are Looking For Love And Support this week! 🥰 Obviously, you already have love and support from us here in this group. But we all know that the support of those closest to us, who we see every day, matters too. If you can get them on board to cheer you along in your journey, it can make all the difference. 🎉

I know it can be hard to be on this journey when people don’t understand. If they don’t have similar goals, they may struggle to even know how to help you. Or they may not realize how important your healthy choices and habits are. 

First off, if you want someone’s support, you need to ask them for it. But to really get them involved, give them some ownership in your success. Let them have some input. Ask them how they would like to be involved. Maybe they don’t want to workout with you, but they would be excited to help you track your workouts. Or maybe they don’t care what you eat, but they want to help you with your water goal. Everyone gets excited about different things, and you never know until you ask. 🤷‍♀️

So, invite them along on your journey. Share the celebration and success with them. Acknowledge their involvement. Let them be a part of it, not just watching on the sidelines.
