MY GYM MOTIVATORS 💪
I can do it! I can do it!!
- •My really killer Spotify playlist!My running mix is insanely good. A perfect mix of adolescent faves, cheesy love songs (you want a voice telling you you are beautiful and perfect while you are gross and sweaty), Reggaeton, power ballads, 90's rap and a hell of a lot of Beyonce.
- •I sleep better.An hour at the gym after a day with 3 year olds--I'm dead from 10 pm to 5 am.
- •I eat better.What is it about exercise that make me want to eat kale all the time?
- •I don't worry as much when I eat garbageWhat's one empanada when I'm running and eating kale all the time?
- •Helps with anxiety/depression/ADD issues that are extra present this time of year.Why am I such a spastic mess in the winter???
- •Harry Potter on AudibleBetter than music because chapters are longer than songs. I also like listening to books I've read before because I can mentally catch up if I happen to zone out a little. And I am only allowed to listen if I'm working out.
- •Cute guys.My gym has a high quantity. This is a top motivator.
- •Clothes fit better.Moving my favorite bathing suit and really hot (kinda short) dress front and center of my closet. You will look better on me by springtime--you will!!!
- •I can carry things more easily.Stop feeling sorry for myself for not having a boyfriend to help carry my groceries, 'cause I lift weights and can carry them myself!
- •Outlet for dealing with frustration and stress.And ultimately feels better than a glass of wine.
- •I can play chasing and running games on the playground with the kiddos without feeling like I'm gonna die.Like hell I'm gonna let those little punks be faster than me!
- •The guy have a crush on and see all the timeAnd if he sees me in a cute gym outfit that makes my butt look good, so be it. Stupid, effective.
- •Invite a friend to go with.Usually with a little force and some kicking and screaming, but it makes workouts more fun if we get to gossip and complain about work while we stretch and stuff.
- •Puts me in a good mood.Benefits everyone.✌
