Are you struggling to get that lazy ass up every morning to do your exercise routine? Do you always feel like procrastinating every time your alarm sounds?
Your alarm clock is tired of you pushing its snooze button. You have to get up and get moving. Here are some hacks that you might find useful.
Sleep in your workout suit
If you plan to work out the next morning, sleep on your exercise clothes so that you won’t have to get lazy whenever your alarm sounds. Do this and you’ll say goodbye to some lazy morning procrastination. Just don’t try sleeping with your shoes on!
If you want that cake, you’ll have to work for it
Have you been eyeing that cake for days now and you put on so much effort just to avoid eating it? Think of it this way, the more exercise you do, the less diet you have to do? That is of course if you are not after a super sleek body and you are just into healthy living and toning.
Make your routine a part of your social life
Try finding friends and making your exercise time your social life. You’ll be surprised at how much you look forward to exercising compared to before. And while you are exercising, you won’t even notice the time. Before you know it, it’s time to go home already and you will be looking forward to the next session.
Train hard to train less
Did you know that the intensity of your training pretty much determines the length of your exercise? The more intense your workout it, the less time you can do it. So during your lazy days, start it off with an intense workout right away. You’ll get two benefits, you’ll be able to train faster today because you’ll be done sooner, or you’ll be able to train harder if you decide to take as long as your usual routine.
Gyms are a waste of money
This is true especially if you are just starting your fitness regimen. Instead of paying an insane amount for the gym, why don’t you pay yourself when you exercise? Sounds crazy? No. Just leave a jar or anything to put money in, decide on how much you should pay yourself every time. When you see the money piling up your jar, you’ll be surprised at how motivated you’ll become.
Having a workout routine that is right for you should never be too hard. Well, it is hard in the beginning, but you just have to have the proper set of determination, motivation and discipline. Before you know it, the hardest part is far behind you and you are used to your routine already.
