Busy Mom's Motivation

The Secret to the Busy Mom Workout

“Ok, so I said I was giving this bod a rest today...but I couldn't do it!

I feel so good when I work's so exhilarating. I walked around the neighborhood for 20 minutes then did the short burst resistance exercises and then intervals on the bike for 10 minutes. Then Stretching..”

~ Beth S. from Team: Burn Belly Fat

It is evident that Beth has stumbled upon one of the secrets that makes Doing and Sticking To a workout routine possible. Pure enjoyment.

When you truly love what you do, you will keep doing it!

Sure that is obvious, but the most surprising part? When I asked Beth how her results were coming along, this is what she said..."I don't know if I notice any changes yet."

Funny, because isn't that what the majority of us hang our hat on....Results? Most of us state that our motivation is based on RESULTS. Results are what we all want. Results are what every single weight loss program promises you.

But the factors that determine whether we reach them and keep them lie deeper a bit deeper.
And that is what Beth has discovered.
It is not the destination....but the journey.

She has taken the right steps by establishing a proper mindset.

This very step has allowed her to become aware of and embrace the way she physically feels during and after each workout. This awareness has helped to not only keep her focused but also acts as a powerful drive, keeping her priorities at the forefront of her mind.

So how do you get to this place of Fitness Bliss?

It's a 2 step process.
Grab a pen and some paper and get ready to ask yourself some questions.

1. Write out your goals - what do you want? Be specific. Be realistic.

2. What's your Reason - why is this so important to you?

This is where you need to dig. What will happen to you, your family, your quality of life if you do not reach your goals? Keep asking WHY until you elicit an emotional response.

Next, post this where you can see it Everyday. You have just established a strong foundation from which your fitness plan can be built.
