A: Everyone has lazy days, but there are ways to stay positive. I suggest going to a different gym or a new class to switch it up. Listen to new music or even wear a new workout outfit, do something to pump you up. Try changing your environment. I’ll go to the gym in the afternoon when it’s busiest because that motivates me to be around lots of other people working out hard. I’ll feed off of their energy when I don’t have my own.
I also love a good cup of strong coffee in the morning. On days where I have the coffee, but I’m still not feeling it, I’ll tell myself I’ll just do a quick workout and take it easy. Sometimes, that’s what the body needs. It’s ok if it’s not the best workout. Some days are better than others, but don’t beat yourself up about it. Sometimes, once I get going, I will get into it and then push myself harder and longer than planned. You’ll always feel good afterwards. Sometimes you have to really push yourself to start.
