One of the most common questions I get asked is about motivation. How do you stay on track with your workouts and nutrition? Personally, I'm an overachiever in most aspects of my life. Everything is a competition and I have to win, even when it comes to myself. I set goals for everything and once I reach them, I set more. I don't believe in wasting time on things that aren't meaningful to you. What's the point in completing tasks half-heartedly. So that being said, the first step in finding your motivation to live a healthy lifestyle, is to make yourself and your happiness a priority. Sit down and think about what you want to accomplish with your body. That could be the ability to keep up with your monster-child toddler (I know the feeling), to be able to move the inventory items at work on your own, competing in a figure competition or strength/power competition, or even just to be stronger than you were yesterday, last week, last month. The best goals involve becoming a better version of yourself rather than comparing to a person who does't have your genes, lifestyle, income, or the same priorities. Set goals and then create a plan to get yourself there. If you need help, find someone who can work with you to plan how many days a week you need strength training or cardio in order to achieve the results you want.
