It’s Motivation Monday! If all goes according to plan, I should be landing from Brazil a few hours after this is posted. If you have actually received 4 posts from me in the time I’ve been gone, I probably deserve some kind of medal. This technology-fearing blog newbie is coming a long way ;).
I’ve been having some exciting conversations with Gold’s Gym lately, and the manager mentioned that February 18th (tomorrow!) is the “Fitness Cliff.” What does this mean? It means that this is the day after which most people “fall off the cliff” of their New Year’s Resolutions related to fitness. So today, I want to remind you to think about why you decided (through a Resolution or otherwise) to make working out a part of your life, and inspire you to continue to do so.

In the article, Gold’s mentions a few tips for keeping up your resolution, including telling everyone you know, getting on a long-term program, and joining a fun new class. I like all of these tips, but I’ll add one more … remember how great you feel after a wonderful workout. It’s not always easy, but it IS worth it. (picture source)
So get out there, and enjoy! Gold’s Gym is opening its doors for FREE tomorrow, so whether it’s there or anywhere else, I hope you continue to get in your exercise this week! (picture source)
So tell me in the comments … How do you stick to your fitness goals? Does now feel like about the time that motivation may be lagging? Catch me up – did anything exciting happen to you while I was gone? Feel free to link up to your exciting posts!
