How to Workout Even When You Don’t Feel Like It

Whether you’re just starting your fitness journey or you’re a seasoned gym goer, you still have those days where you just don’t want to do it.

Sometimes even just getting off the couch is a struggle, and that’s okay. What’s important is you don’t let the lazy monster hold you hostage.

Which is why we’re going to give you three ways to get yourself moving even when you just don’t wanna so that you can keep getting those results!

Eat a Protein Rich Snack

If you’re low on energy, you’re definitely not going to be motivated to hit the gym.

And who wants to be working out with a grumbling stomach?

Before you workout, make sure you eat a protein rich snack like a handful of nuts

A couple of hours before your workout, eat a protein rich snack to boost your energy.

Foods like hard boiled eggs or a handful of almonds will get your muscles warmed up and ready to go.

Just Put on Your Shoes!

This one may sound like a no brainer, but it’s actually a pretty powerful mind trick.

When you find yourself slumped on the couch debating whether or not you really need to workout, start with baby steps.

  1. Put your workout clothes on.
  2. Put your shoes on.
  3. Go outside.

Just by doing these steps, you’re already conquering the hardest part of exercising – getting started.

And even if you get dressed and still can’t find the motivation to head out the door, just being dressed the part will help you feel more energized than before.

You’ll probably knock out those household chores in a snap!

Find an Accountability Partner

The best experiences in life are shared with others. So why not enlist a partner to join you on your fitness journey?

Workout with an accountability partner to keep you on track and motivated

Having a friend or family member in your corner and going through the process with you makes working out even more enjoyable.

Plus, you’ll have someone to kick your rear into gear on days you feel like giving up or straying from your meal plan.
