Need Motivation To Workout?

This Sparked Me!

If you find you have a hard time finding the motivation to workout on your scheduled days or just at all try this! Buy a calender and put it up in your room or where you would like. Write you workout schedule on there, go do it, and when you come back put a smiley face showing how completing that workout made you feel. The next time you feel like skipping a work out look at the smiley face and it will remind you how good you felt after finishing it. And why skip something that makes you happy? :)

    Such a great idea. I like to "see" that I am consistent. It means more than just "knowing" or thinking I was consistent.

    I like this change in focus - how good I feel AFTER the workout - not whether I FEEL like doing the work out - good perspective - I will try this !
