How To Ditch The Bad Energy + Up Your Fitness Motivation
Whether we're trying to lose weight, eat healthier, or go next-level in our fitness, changing our lives for the better is something we all aspire to do--but honestly, sometimes it's hard to stay motivated! There are a whole lotta reasons we get off track, from work and family obligations to an injury and other health challenges. When it comes to fitness motivation, it can be especially tough to keep the workouts up. Often, we have a burst of motivation early on and then a lot of us tend to stall out. Ugh.
And it's not a matter of "if I can" because our bodies are capable of anything, really! You need only think back to your last hardcore sweat sesh to know that. It's more about coaxing yourself to do it. As they say: "Your body can stand almost anything. It's your mind that you have to convince."
The trick is to understand what's driving you, change the narrative if it's making you feel crappy about yourself, and then set goals to achieve what you want!
If you haven't yet, you guys HAVE to watch this YouTube video where Katie talks about being the ugly duckling among her friends before her weight loss journey. She had to first figure out that her friends needed her to be "less than" in order for them to feel better about themselves. How crazy is that!? Once she had that epiphany and worked through the emotional pain, she began to focus on herself, slowly building her self-confidence--and that's when she found the motivation to lose the weight. And her life changed for the better in every way. She's so dang inspiring!
