12 Ways To Keep Your Fitness Goals When You're Unmotivated AF

When it comes to personal development and goal-setting, there are very few undertakings that are more challenging than maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle throughout the years, especially after the initial motivation of New Year's resolutions wears off.


We've all been there: we've started a plan, we've felt excited, and we've dove in with extreme gusto. Then, by week four--who am I kidding week two--we've suddenly lost motivation, and everything seems like it is too much.

Going to the gym is harder than passing it. Eating healthy is stressful and who has time to cook, again? Your diet is too restrictive and that exercise routine that you perfected while in your prime is hard as hell now.

And eventually, and inevitably, you quit.

Because the truth is, staying motivated every day to exercise and eat clean can be tough, and sometimes you just don't feel like it. Which is normal. But, each day that goes by with you stuck in this rut is another day missed and you go further and further from your fitness goal.

So, without further ado, and seeing how you've already wasted enough time, I present to you to the 12 tricks to keep your fitness fever--and mine--elevated at the highest degree.

Find an Accountability Partner

Buddy up. Yes, it can be isolating to exercise alone, especially if you aren't close to the body that you want. So, why not share the experience with a friend, or an accountability partner?

Letting yourself down can be easy, but with an accountability partner you can sport the guilt you'll need to accomplish your goal. With an accountability partner, you'll have someone to report to if you flake out of your exercise routine. Plus, on the bright side, your partner-in-fitness can make for a great gym buddy, confidant, and support system.
