Fitness Motivation or Determination?  

I am not a motivated person.  There isn’t much that gets me out of bed to do fasted cardio 5x/week other than simply knowing I made a promise to myself.  To me, motivation has an expiration date.  When something simply doesn’t sound good – it’s so easy to just say “I’ll do it tomorrow.”  Well, guess what…tomorrow generally comes and with that comes another excuse on why shit doesn’t get done. 

 

Discipline is the mindset that I have to keep, period.  Discipline reminds me of the promise I made to myself on the days when I’m not feeling it.  I have to do it.  That’s all there is to it.  So, here’s a list of a few reason why discipline will always outweigh motivation when it comes to working out, health and wellness.  I hope this helps someone out there who lacks the drive to just chuck it in the fuck it bucket and just get it done. 

 

1. don’t like being sweaty. 

TMI, but I’m a hot mess of sweat when I work out.  It doesn’t really matter what my workout is – I’m just sweating.  If my workout happens later in the day and I still have plans or things to do that evening, I hate having to take the time to do personal hygiene, shower again, reapply makeup …and all the things a girl has to do to feel and look presentable.  But I do it.  I made a commitment to myself, for myself.  I feel better after the workout is done (90% of the time, anyway), and I know I’m doing a service to my health and wellness.
