Women seem to go through distinct stages of fitness motivation.
You may have times when you get bored with your workouts even if you've been dedicated to your routine for a long time. The saying familiarity breeds contempt can apply to what is challenging your
motivation. By learning more and sticking with your program, you will be able to better handle the ups and downs of motivation. Here are some interesting ways to keep your motivation high.
Rather than working at your fitness program alone, you may find it more interesting to have a friend to share it with. This way of making something more fun by doing it with someone else is called
the buddy system. When you exercise with a compatible friend, you can both gain several important advantages. You are, first of all, making yourself accountable to this person when you agree to work
out with her. You do not want to let yourself or your friend down by being the dreaded "no show." Motivation is much easier to maintain when there's someone to keep you focused and interested in your
routine. Women sometimes come up with innovative ways to motivate themselves to stick with their fitness programs. One such method is to take a look around your gym or fitness club and observe people
you wouldn't want to resemble. Someone who hasn't been working out for long, for example, may be overweight or very out of shape. While looking at them, you can reaffirm your own goals so you don't
end up looking like that. You may then have an additional reason to finish your workout instead of going home and relaxing.
All of us know all too well that life has its surprises and special moments that can interfere with just about anything. Don't get thrown off course just because you had to miss a workout one day. If
you don't work out one day, this isn't a reason to beat yourself up. No matter what happens, the key is to stay as positive as you can. The best approach is to look to the future rather than focusing
on setbacks. Negative feelings can be the worst thing for your motivation, so don't let them get hold of you. Self criticism can lower your confidence and drive to succeed. Fitness motivation for
women does not have to become a quagmire that it seems to be for so many of us. Do some solid research or read inspirational and motivational books on the subject. You can collect your own set of
tools that you'll have by your side when you need them. After you've reached a certain point, you'll feel more confident and you won't have to worry about losing your motivations as much.
