I have a story for you. As I was lacing up my sneakers to go to the gym this afternoon, my bestie Amanda asked me a really great question. "How do you do it?" she asked. Laughing, I asked, "do what?". "stay motivated, and positive" she said. I had to think a while about that. How do I do it? Well, to start, I don't always. I am not in a constant state of positive sunshine. I get grumpy. I get anxious, and rude, and very down on myself. There are plenty of times that going to workout is the very last thing I could possibly want to think about doing. The best I could do was to give her the few tips I have. One of my biggest motivators is the way I feel after a really great workout. My skin gets all glowy, and I exist in a completely euphoric alternate universe. Another motivational thing for me, believe it or not, is cute workout gear. I wear super bright colors, and really fun fabrics. I love working out because it means I get to wear my favorite clothes :)Also, as with anyone, results motivate me. I love watching changes in my body,I like seeing muscles change and grow, it's very interesting to me.
So, even though I didn't have class until 1pm today, I got up at 7 am and went to work. I spent three hours chopping veggies :

What motivates you?
