I woke up like…… feeling completely unmotivated and wanted to go back to bed!! 

I woke up like…… feeling completely unmotivated and wanted to go back to bed!! 

Hey there friendly folks. We’re almost to FRIYAY!! But I’m feeling those lazy Thursday vibes. I woke up wanting to go straight back into bed, sleep the day away, and do absolutely NOTHING!! I felt bloated(pms), cranky, not happy about going to work, and just plain unmotivated. I was basically already telling myself “you’re not going to the gym today, you dont feel good and you’re tired”. 

But should I really take the night off from the gym?! The answer is NO!! In the time spand of 45 minutes, what are you really going to do when you go home? Probably just sit home and watch tv, wishing you went to the gym. 

But how do I stay motivated in those situations?! 


Even when you’re not having the most positive and motivating morning, you can find ways to make it a tiny bit better.

  • Hydrate on water throughout the day to keep your energy up!! 

  • Stretch throughout the day. Keep reminding yourself that you’re going to have the best workout after work. 

  • Indulge on a little creamy protein and some coffee, you’re going to work it off later!! You deserve it. 


Think about your dinner. You need to earn your dinner. Work off your morning and afternoon calories and work stress. You will enjoy your dinner so much more!! 

  • You will get such a good nights sleep and be ready to take on the weekend full force!! 

  • Have a gym buddy!! Don’t just do it for yourself, but do it for someone else. By motivating other people, you will feel motivated yourself. 

  • And lastly, remember that it will be fun!! Even when you feel too lazy or just grumpy, what do you want out of life?! Do you want to take 45 minutes out of your day just to watch tv? What will that do for you?! 

Stay positive, mindful, motivated, and remember that you’re a rockstar, you can do this!!

    Totally agree with you! Tonight I was tired but I still went to the gym. I knew once I got my gym clothes on that would wake up my muscles in this body of mine:) Sure enough changed clothes and in just a matter of a few minutes I was awake and ready to hit the gym. I love working out. Great post! Keep on inspiring and motivating all of us:) Love and hugs!

    Before I retired I would wake up at 3:15am to go to my gym to exercise. My rule was this: Keep getting dressed in my gym clothes as I came up with all the “Good” excuses not to go and exercise. This satisfied my need to complain while concluding, “I’m already dressed, I may as well go work out!) Most people don’t realize, the hardest part is STARTING the workout, not DOING the workout!
    You gave great suggestions that your readers should truly consider. Keep posting these POSITIVE messages!
