I would be a liar if I said I am always motivated, especially when it comes to working out. As an athlete I have used every excuse to not workout on days that I feel like crap. I’ve told myself I can do it tomorrow, or I would just end up feeling worse if I did. But in actuality you never do it the next day, and you feel even worse doing nothing. In past years I have been my own worse enemy when it comes to motivating myself, and it showed in some of my performances.
No one is perfect and even the greatest athletes have off days but the only thing that sets them apart is what they do to make those off days, great days! Whether it be working on perfect form during workouts, or putting on their big boy/girl pants and getting the work done. Nine times out of ten just getting out there and doing the work will make all the difference in how you feel. The human body is an amazing organism, and can take more than the average person throws at it.
So, start out this week with a little extra motivation, and show yourself that even the smallest steps are forward progress.
