I have done this so many times I can tell you all about motivation and losing that motivation. I only know one person who always goes to the gym and I always tell her that she is the most disciplined person I know. Not just bc she goes to the gym @4:45 am every day!!! Basically we all go up and down in weight. It is HARD to stay in shape. Part of it is bc going to the gym sucks!! I started (again) last week. The results take a while and like every habit it takes 21 days to get used to it. Try to make small goals instead of changing everything at once. When u notice that eating better gives u more energy you will eat better. Having the work out buddy is ideal. Even if you do different things at the gym. I always say the hardest part of going to the gym is getting there. So just try to make it there. Even if you lie to yourself thinking u will only do 15 min in the elliptical. Once u are there u will do more :) spinning and kickboxing are my fav classes! Try body pump-weights class! It is fun and it really works!
Btw I wanted to b lazy yesterday and not go to spin but thanks to my new workout buddy I went. I felt great after the class. I'm glad that I went. Good luck!!
I can totally relate this to. The hardest part about working out is actually walking into the gym. If you noticed in the past once yourE there, the workout is fun and your feel so good you went. I would suggest making a set schedule for working out ,at least twice a week. No matter how you feel , just go! like when you wake up and wanna skip class, just remind yourself how badly good you wanna feel and will . The results of working out are satisfying enough.:)
