March Totals 18′

Hi!

This month my goal was running more miles. Be more active. Drink more water, eating less sweet which I did very good; and walk more.

Let’s see if I achieved this month wishlist.

Days Active all month: 20/31

Total of miles run: 15.40mi

Total of running days: 10

1 Volleyball day  3 hours.  Post about it (Check it out Click Here)

2 Tennis practice 45min each day. Post about it  (Check it out Click Here)

1 day bowling 2 games.

7 days of workout at home around 30min-1hr.

 

This month was very active, I like that. I felt very compromise with me to do it. I did my best.  Hoping this motivation continue. I’m not training for a race or anything in particular. I just doing it for myself. Something that make me feel very proud that I’m choosing to be a better version of myself. I love seeing results but if you want to see it you need to do something about it.

 

(03-30-2018) During today’s run I did my best during the first mile but today I put in mind I was going for 2 miles so when I finally did the first mile I was tired and a little bit in pain in my lower back so I didn’t continue with the run I just walk the next mile.

During this  run I learn that sometimes you need to take it easy. You might need to walk or crawl but never stop.  (unless is something serious you know.) You just go and never quit.

Too good that I need to share!

(short)

Hi!

Recently I have started to practice kickboxing. When I don’t run, I do some type of exercise at home, that can vary.

Today I wasn’t in the mood to run so I decided to search a video workout of kickboxing for beginners. This video came across and I did it and I LOVE IT! It was 25 min in a good pace and easy to follow. Also straight to the point. That’s important to me because I can’t give the opportunity of the doubt came across my mind when I have the objective to do a workout.

It felt so great to use that video for my workout today. That’s why I want to share it!

My motivation strategy

Hi!

I wanted to write about this theme for so long. Because finding motivation to run or just to be active is hard for me. I have been working hard. I wanted to find a reason to do what I want to do. I wanted to find the stimulation and inspiration to move. I wanted to do it myself. And that’s what I did.

My motivation strategy

Starting with:

Setting a Goal:

This is the vision that I have in life. I need to compromise to what I set and make it happen.

Photos:

Those throwback photos when you look your best and your worst. This one hit me hard sometimes. Is hard for me to see those photos and realize that I have been there before, so that is the inspiration to step out of your comfort zone and change what it need to be change.

Videos:

This one I experience it recently. Yesterday for my run I was trying to look for excuses to not run. So I stopped myself and search a video in youtube. To find something inspiring. There was not one, not two ; there was more than I can imagine to see. Just for that reason I went for a run.

 

Quotes:

This one is the most I use. I can say that I’m a collector of motivational running quotes.  Those sentences and phrases give me the push that I need in the moment I search for it. Try it!!

 

Reading: 

In all my life I haven’t read like I’m reading these days. I read more about romance, but recently someone gave me the idea to read about running. So that is what I’m doing. Reading blogs, magazines and books.

 

Follow the inspiration:

There is a lot of platforms to follow other people. Follow that runner, that sport, that team. etc… They help you, believe me. When I saw those photos for example in instagram about the pace, the distance and the time. Is a good boost of passion that blow into my veins. I don’t know how to explain it. Hope you understand me.

 

Write down a log: 

Sometimes I use this platform to keep those memories about the journey I’m having. I also found an other good way to stay motivate and is via calendar. Yep a calendar. I write down the miles, when I run, when I rest or do any cardio..etc

 

Music:

Just listening the rhythm then feel it in your soul. And GO!

 


Question: What is your motivation stragety?
