Always avoid Social Media Comparisons – As great as it is to find inspiration and support on Facebook and Instagram, seeing photos and status updates can trigger unhealthy thoughts or comparisons. There is no need for comparison. Be happy with yourself and do what’s right for your body, because we are all different – Thanks for the Giveaway! I would love to start doing weights and get back to exercising this year!

Try and plan your workout straight from work, the minute you get home motivation goes to return to the gym so if you make it a straight from work thing it becomes part of your routine and you will be more consistent in not skipping a session, if youre an early bird even better if you can get your session before work as its the perfect wake up call to start the day
Tony Martin says
Karen Painter says

Catherine Thomas says
Get a dog it will help get you out and about be good company and good for your health and eat any leftovers save you from being tempted 🙂
My best motivational tip would be to find yourself a dedicated partner. I go with my boyfriend and I find this a massive help as I know he does too. When either one of us are feeling unmotivated after long days at work, we can always rely on one another to get us motivated again. I’m fortunate to have someone who encourages me to be my best self. I have friends’ who go with other friends’ and they find this a massive help as well. It’s a great feeling knowing you’re able to influence someone to keep themselves at their best self as they do you on those down days. ??♀️
Use Positive Affirmations to get motivated – “I’m the best, Better than the rest, I’m full of zest, I’ve passed the test, I enjoy the fest, I’m the luckiest, hooorahhhh!”

Embed it into your routine so it becomes part of your everyday life. It will soon become the norm and you will wonder how you ever lived without working out!
