Getting into shape before the big day can be a drag, but it doesn’t have to be. Make it easy and enjoyable with these easy tricks. Instead of forcing yourself to exercise, motivate yourself to get to where you want to be, and make it FUN!
1. Recruit your friends or family.
The buddy system is a great motivator to keep you on track to your exercise goals. Get one or two friends to join you and keep each other accountable of your goals.
2. Try something new.
Running or weight training may not be your thing, so don’t do the traditional. Try something different like a dance class, rock climbing, or even a swim class. Challenging yourself during your workout can keep you in the zone and keep you on your toes.
3. Set a reasonable goal.
Aim for a goal you can reach in the amount of time you give yourself. Nothing UNmotivates you like not reaching an unattainable goal. Keep your journey positive. Start small and keep pushing yourself as time goes on.
4. Treat Yo Self!!
It doesn’t have to be all work and no play. When you’ve met a goal or completed a challenge, keep yourself focused and inspired by giving yourself a little treat like a manicure or massage. (sounds like something to look forward to, eh?!)
Once you find an activity you enjoy, exercising will no longer be a chore, but something you can look forward to! Find your groove when it comes to starting your journey, and you’ll start seeing results in no time!
