Post 11 – Motivation for Determination: Getting to the Gym on Lazy Days

7 Dec

It could be that you’ve caught a case of the Mondays, or maybe it’s Saturday afternoon and you’re more concerned about which party you’ll go to rather than the body part you’re working out. Whatever the reason, sometimes it’s hard to get your mind right to get a good lift in.

We’ve all been there – “I’ll skip today…but I’ll work even harder tomorrow.” Sometimes you just don’t feel like going to the gym. It’s normal. We all hit that point where we lack the motivation to get our blood pumping.

The best thing to do when you don’t want to lace up your sneakers and head out the door is find some inspiration. What inspires you to better your body and dedicate one to two hours at the gym? Let this post be a sanctuary for you to come to when you need that little extra push.

Quotes

1. “Pain is temporary, quitting lasts forever.” –Lance Armstrong

2. “The pain of discipline is far less than the pain of regret.” –Sarah Bombell

3. “Whether it’s a 14-minute mile or a 7-minute mile, it’s still a mile.” -Anonymous

4. “When I’d get tired and want to stop, I’d wonder what my next opponent was doing. I’d wonder if he was still working out. I tried to visualize him. When I could see him still working, I’d start pushing myself. When I could see him in the shower, I’d push myself harder.” –Dan Gable

5. Ability is what you’re capable of doing. Motivation determines what you do. Attitude determines how well you do it. –Lou Holtz
