What To Do When You Just Don’t Wanna Workout

"How To Train When You're Not Motivated"

She doesn’t seem to be suffering from poor motivation!

First things first. Unless you’ve been hitting the gym day in and day out for weeks and truly deserve an unloading week, then you need to get over it. I know, tough love 🙂 and sure, I’m making the assumption that you want to either be leaner, fitter, faster, stronger or maybe just meaner. You probably wouldn’t be here otherwise.

So. That being said, here are my top 10 suggestions for what to do when you just don’t wanna workout.

1. Caffeine pre-workout increases strength and motivation and even helps you burn more fat. Down a short or long black and get on with it. Just don’t have it post workout (at least not until after you’ve eaten) or you’ll further elevate cortisol. Not good.

2. Get some rocking tunes happening. There’s something about Keisha (I know, I’m supposed to put some weird symbol in there) that just makes me want to move. I put on the iPod, and bam – I feel into it all of a sudden. Take some time this weekend perhaps to work on a workout playlist. You might actually start looking forward to training.

3. Java Stim is a FANTASTIC Poliquin supplement for if you don’t do coffee. Or even if you do and want more buzz 🙂 it gives you the kick without the jitters. Enough said. (My husband gets really cranky if we run out of this).

4. Enlist a friend. The great thing about training in pairs or more, aside from the handy spot, is that there will invariably days when one of you will be down, depressed, and feeling too blah to move. The other one will be up. This is a good thing; you can kick each others butts into some fat-burning work! Personal trainers have a similar benefit, although hopefully they keep their down days to themselves.

5. Join my Woman Incredible Fat Loss Workouts! They’re new, and they rock. I’ll get you moving, trust me!

6. Think about the outcome rather than the perceived pain of it. When you focus on what you DON’T want to do, you’re going to get all caught up in that. Force yourself to dwell on how you usually feel after a workout, psychologically as well as physically. Chase that feeling.

7. The 10-minute rule. You’ve heard of this before, yes? You just promise yourself you only have to do 10 minutes, and then you can stop. Yes it’s obvious. Too simple, perhaps. And it works, so therefore it’s a fabulous rule.

8. Get naked! Maybe not in public. In the mirror at home should do it. So long as there’s no Tim Tams nearby of course, ’cause it might have the opposite to desired effect 😉

9. Try something new. There’s nothing worse than being stuck in the same old same old workout routine. If you’ve been making it up as you go along, or following a stale program for weeks/months/ever, then you need to mix it up and get serious about results based training. Join a bootcamp, go to a class even, and definitely consider having a program written for you by a (good) trainer. Poliquin PTs are the best IMO 🙂

10. Set a reward. Not a food reward, although if you’re eating super clean all week you sure deserve a night off on the weekend. How ’bout a ‘new gym gear’ reward, or a massage. Maybe a book? Something! Anything!

What do you do to get motivated when you just can’t be bothered?

Don’t forget –

Life is Now. Press Play.

✨✨ Success Frequencies.

Let’s talk about them. Breathe them in. ALLOW them in. And then dial them TF in.

Are you ready?

There are certain ways of being, of operating, of thinking, and perhaps most in particular of expecting which are currently dictating your outcomes in every area of life.

You are, quite literally, coded. Programmed. Running on a frequency of … X.

With X being, well – whatever you see around you most days. Whatever you experience. Feel. Know to be true. Receive and hold onto. Receive and do not hold on to. Or do not receive at all.

There are certain things in your life which right now you can click your fingers and command to replicate, on repeat, and they do.

And there are other things which SHOULD be in your life, which you yearn to have in your life, which sometimes you get a glimpse or a taste of or even an entire mouthful, and then they’re gone, into the night, maybe never to return again, shrouded in mystery and frustration but yet at the same time that deeper part of you knows –

it’s not supposed to be like this.

It shouldn’t be.

I don’t accept it!

And I WILL move past.

You look into the future you see inside of you and you know that it is ALL real, ALL available, ALL true, ALL there for the taking. A virtual sushi train of wondrous life options, every one of ’em just a choice you can pluck off as it rolls on by! Don’t see what you want, not exactly? All you gotta do is ASK, and it’ll be freshly made for you!

Your belief around the impossible is OFF THE CHARTS.

And it always has been.

Your PROOF, of CREATING and ALLOWING the impossible is also pretty darn off the charts, if you do say so yourself. Which you don’t have to, because others do it for you!

It’s ALWAYS been this way for you, you’ve ALWAYS been able to dance between realities and choose the one you wanna keep.

But yet –

it feels, so much of the time, as though you’re teetering.

Teetering on the edge of will I / won’t I let myself FULLY go and receive, create, allow, BE –

or will I fall back into normal, into rules, into worries, into shoulds, into the dreaded dreaded fear that it’ll somehow all just stop working and I’ll find out there was never anything special about me at all, never anything wondrous about what I could do, and that I just somehow … fluked things for a bit.

Sometimes you’re CERTAIN which way you’re going to topple.

And other times you’re terrified you have no idea at all, and if you did you wouldn’t want to know.

But what you do know is this:

When things are working.

When things are flowing to and through and from you in the precise ways they should be.

When things are OH so yes.

When it’s all just coming together, the different areas of your business your money your life and YOU just rolling PERFECTLY, like a beautiful and impossible to replicate orchestra, pure MAGIC –

it’s not because of what you did.

It is not because of how you planned, followed the plan, did it right.

It’s not a list you ticked off that made it that you got to then GET.

It’s not because you followed RULES for success.

Or really anything at all.

It’s because you were playing life on a certain frequency. You were tapped in, dialled in, LEANING all the way in to something you can’t even fully describe but you KNOW when you’re in it.

You were, not to be too corny or cliche about it but we’ll say it anyway ’cause it’s true – one with life itself. Dancing the most beautiful dance of BEING FULLY YOU with the wind beneath your wings nothing other than God and truth and the very fabric of the universe, what else could it be?!

Put simply:

you had those Success Frequencies switched on to high AF, and you were using ’em.

Want to know how to do that more, in fact any time you choose, in fact with complete calm understanding of what it is you ARE doing and how to tap in and BE in that energy, that place, that receiving, at will?

It’s always been available.

It’s ALWAYS been right there for the taking.

EVERYTHING you’ve suspected this whole time is true.

And now?
We’re gonna get you understanding it (every last bit).

Living it (as naturally as breathing).

And UTILISING it to let life unwind to the places you’ve been waiting to be (the way it’s meant for you).
