How to Stay Motivated During a Workout

This pretty faithfully retraces my thought process during a particularly difficult workout.  Or maybe I was just kind of whupped and didn’t want to do it, I don’t know.  Works particularly well for Zumba.  And don’t think I didn’t put this to use this very morning in BodyPump.

Thanks, three-year-old!

Clearly, the mentality of a three-year-old appeals to me.

Funny, where inspiration comes from sometimes.

Have a great workout!  No tired.

  1. Reminds me of one of my younger relatives. One second, the kid was saying “I not tired” and the next second, the kid conked out completely. And I love the kid appearing as a whirlwind all through the house.

      I think that’s pretty common for three year olds, but this kid would whip it up into a frenzy and tear his way through the house. I didn’t have the patience to draw the multiple pre-zonk out footraces he would have with his older sister. LOL So when trying to find motivation in Zumba…”I not tired!” has become a mantra. We find inspiration in the strangest places, I suppose.

      Please do! It works like crazy, plays into the “stamina is mental” idea. Though no, I have no idea where the munchkins get it from!
