Losing Motivation?

Have you noticed that when you watch the clock time seems to move incredibly slow? Same goes for the workout clock. Sometime when I’ve started a workout, whether it is P90X or T25, I have felt really tired and looked at the clock and thought, “there is not way that I’m going to make it.” ¬†When this happens I try not to look at the total time left and instead focus on the time left for the individual exercise. I’ve even gone as far to put tape over the clock so I won’t be tempted to look. This way I am always focused on finishing the current exercise, not on what is coming next. As Tony Horton says, “You can do anything for 30 seconds.”

This same method of focusing on little chunks of time can be extended to the entire workout program, whether it is 21, 30, 60, or 90 days. We all have the goal to finish the program and want the motivation to get to the big day. But, sometimes motivation just isn’t there and it seems like day 90 will never arrive. When this happens, don’t focus on being 8 Days into the program, focus on nailing the nutrition and pressing play on Day 8. You can do anything for one day!

You guys can do it. You can make it to Day 90 (or however long your program is). Just break down things into smaller chunks of time and ROCK them! Keep bringing it guys, now is not the time to give up. The only people who lose at this workout and nutrition stuff are those that quit. So don’t quit and keep bringing it!
