These are the doldrums of summer. Things are feeling hot and sticky, the kids are bouncing off the walls and you’re a little tired. OK, maybe more than a little tired. You probably have lost most of your motivation to be healthy. Ready to workout? Nah. How about those fitness goals? Pshh. Fall is just around the corner and you’ll be wearing big sweaters and puffy vests in no time, right?
Even as a trainer and nutrition coach, I am feeling my own motivation dwindle, too. At least at the beginning of the season we have pictures of swimsuits in mind, activities to conquer, and high hopes for the summer. However, in the last couple weeks I have skipped more workouts and eaten out far more than normal. It’s a little sad.
This week, I'm a guest over at NW Healthy Mama, offering five completely doable ways to rekindle your motivation this summer.
Is it that we just don’t care anymore? I don’t think that’s it. We do care. We truly want to be strong moms, fit and active women that are healthy and athletic. Come learn how to find that spark again. Lord knows we need it right now! And perhaps a little bit of grace, too...
