Fitness: Finding Motivation

I’ve been slowly adjusting my lifestyle towards better health and it’s already been seven months! Motivation comes and goes and sometimes it’s tough to keep the momentum going.
-Make friends. As an introvert, this wasn’t an easy task and it took about five months for me to start talking to people. It might take you more or less to warm up to the people around you, but now that I have, I find myself more excited to get to class. Phil, Bill, Ric and Tim are my main pals, the ones who work the hardest in class and I’m now always trying to keep up with them.
-Switch it up. After a pretty consistent routine of four classes a week (abs and strength/conditioning back to back, twice a week) and 2-3 additional days of workouts on my own, I realized things get old quick. Throughout the last couple months, I’ve tried other fitness classes, switched up my workout days (taking Fridays off make my Saturday workouts so much more fun and then I can enjoy a Friday night!) and continue to try new exercises.
-Stay inspired. I find motivation in blogs like the Four Percent or curbing my sweet tooth with healthy dessert recipes on Chocolate Covered Katie. When I’m learning new exercises or gaining new tips or recipes from blogs, I’m more motivated and inspired to stay on track.

    You look amazing! After moving to Switzerland 4 months ago and indulging in the lovely fresh bread, chocolate and cheese, I've quickly gained 5 lbs. I started eating better this weekend and am going to start adding daily exercise to my routine as well. You're a great inspiration as I don't need to lose a ton of weight (10 lbs would be awesome). Mainly I need to tone up and treat my body better.
