Here’s where inspiration and motivation become key. The first few weeks of a workout are great. You are excited, you are feeling the changes of more energy, sleeping better, focusing on good food which increases your sense of balance, groundedness, and energy … and then things don’t seem as rosy. You’ve hit the mundane and boring part of reaching a goal.
The time when the excitement of having it is no longer more than the work and focus it takes to get it accomplished. In this time it is critical to have inspiration to drive your motivation. This is where you have to really keep your focus going and where having a routine that you stick too (even when it’s boring or seems like it won’t matter if you sleep in or eat this instead) becomes critical for getting you over the hump.
Placed together with cycling workouts and beating plateaus this extra effort sticking to your routine will take you a long, long way.
