I just returned from a week in Florida. My inlaws live there and we visit often. I always tell myself that I am going to work out extra hard before every trip. I always fail. I forget that I have to do laundry, pack, get an eyebrow wax and all that other fun stuff. However, those are really just excuses. For whatever reason, I lose motivation to work out. Even the thought of putting on a bathing suit isn’t enough.
When we went to the beach, I felt fine. I didn’t feel my best, but I was ok with that. Then I realized that I felt fine since I was not around my friends. Do I really care if my butt looks fat in front of my mother in law? (Please don’t answer that).
Fact is, peer pressure works for me. When I think of wearing my bathing suit at the town pool in front of all my friends, yeah well, that does get me motivated.
What gets you running to the gym?
