I came to the sad realization a few months ago that my motivation to get myself out the door for my runs was waning. It was time to get a race on the calendar. It is amazing how motivating training for an event can be. And it doesn't have to be a race. I've had clients use everything from races to weddings as motivation for their day-to-day "training." Well ... maybe don't decide to get married just so that you will be motivated to make some health changes, but getting married does seem to be a very strong motivation for a lot of people!
For most of us though, putting something like a 5K run or walk on the calendar is realistic and also very motivating. Many clients over the years have gotten into a better exercise (and sometimes eating) routine in preparation for a vaction that they know they will enjoy more if they are fit.
If that sounds like you, use the link below to schedule a compliementary 15 min strategy session and we can work together to discover if something like getting an active event on the calendar will motivate you to make the changes you know you want to make so you have the energy for the things that matter most!
