I was so close to hitting my calories burned goal, but my twins had other plans. No worries, there’s always tomorrow and while my personal health and fitness goals are EXTREMELY important to me sometimes being mommy come first!
What motivation is & what motivation isn’t👇🏼
I get asked how in the world I stay motivated. How do I get up at 4 a.m. in the midst of 65 hour work weeks? How do I get amped to eat meal-prepped lunches of chicken & rice vs take-out & dessert?
To be honest, I have no solid answer other than these have become my habits. This is the lifestyle I have fallen in love with. I am not always motivated; I am always dedicated.
My original motivation on this journey was similar to many: lose weight,, “tone up”, like how my body looked, etc.
But these were just wishes.
There was no true “why” behind what I was doing. I started losing some weight & gaining muscle. But I soon realized looking good would never be enough. Aesthetics are a moving target; of course your body can always look a little bit better.
The shift came when I finally discovered I was worth more than a lifetime of giving up.
I hired a coach who holds me accountable and believes in me fiercely. Of course I still want to look good. But it’s not why I’m here. My motivation has transformed into dedication to lifelong health. And I want every single person I’m able to touch in this world to know they are so much more than the external.
So, remember — Motivation is necessary for kickstarting your journey.
Motivation isn’t stable or linear or everlasting.
Motivation is internal.
Motivation isn’t external.
Motivation is something to be utilized, but it is never something to be dependent on. It doesn’t last.
So if you’re wondering why you don’t feel motivated — check your why. Is it big & scary? Is it your burning passion in life? Does it look like a lot of work?
Good. Cause here’s the big fat truth: Your motivation isn’t lacking; your ambitions are. ✨

Ended up having an impromptu cookout with my in laws today and had less than an hour to hit the gym because it closes early on the weekends. Luckily today was just my cardio and abs day so I did intervals on the elliptical and burned over 400 calories! Gonna go home and do a @fitnessblender ab workout on YouTube. #noexcuses#summeriscoming
