Discipline & Motivation

Leave a comment

I hear this often…”Im lacking motivation”…WELL here’s my truth! Im not always motivated myself!!

My little girl caught a cold and this past week her nights of sleep have been pretty poor WHICH of course impact my sleep. One night she was up practically every 15 minutes until I held her in my recliner chair so she could breath while sleeping.

I got hardly ANY sleep that night and it seemed even the nights she was up 2x vs 5x the sleep I did was crappy anyway. I also caught her cold so was feeling crappy myself. So I took it easy on my ME workouts this week.

Soooo yea…I’ll let you in on my secret —> Sometimes it’s just 💯 discipline and 0% motivation! I am tired. My mind feels overwhelmed with other things going on. I just want to take a nap…..and so on.

But when you’ve made working out a lifestyle habit it feels funky when you miss your routine. So as much as I wasn’t all that MOTIVATED today to do my ME workout I put on my disciplined shoes and did one. {Not just for me but for everyone else in my home too hahahahaha #crankymommy}.

—Friends. You aren’t always going to feel like it or feel motivated…INSTEAD find that discipline because you KNOW you NEED it! Once you discipline yourself to do what you MAY NOT feel like doing BUT you KNOW it’s good for you…it makes it easier to JUST DO IT!

So next time when you find yourself saying “I’m just not motivated to workout. I wish I could find the motivation to change!!” Stop and just DO! Make it a lifestyle habit! Discipline yourself!

I am 35 yrs. old -a Wife and Mother to a Beautiful Boy and my Rainbow Baby Girl. I am a dance and fitness instructor. I own a fitness studio where I offer a variety of fitness classes in the evenings. I recently have become a FULL TIME Fitness Coach after 3+ years of working as a Day Care Assistant after having my Son and leaving my Emotionally Taxing Case Management Position. Fitness is my passion! I love to work out on my own AND with others! Throughout my both of my pregnancies I continued to work out on my own and with Beachbody programs, live my dream of being a work from home mom (for most of the day), and teach at my studio (and other locations) in the evening. After the birth of my son I have worked hard to get my pre-preg. body back. Shaun T's T25 was initial program and then Tony's P90X3 BOTH which I loved the short affective times because with having a newborn baby that was EXACTLY what I needed. I know and understand the self discipline it takes to achieve your desired goals and I am still on that path and have my struggles as everyone else does! I love to offer my support to my clientele with group fitness classes I offer in my community and I feel we work as a team all together to HELP each other. I LOVE offering my support via the web too as I REACH other people that I can't physically see. IT IS AMAZINGLY rewarding and I can't imagine NOT doing what I do! Im currently on my postpartum journey once again and so GRATEFUL and BLESSED to live this healthy lifestyle, lead by example for my family, and support others on their journey too!
