I always have good intentions at the start of the year, and plan exactly when I’m going to work out.... but while I can think of a huge list of reasons why I should work out, I can think of a huge list of why it can wait until tomorrow, too! So I’ve researched the top nine ways to motivate yourself into exercising everyday, and if you are anything like me, they should help you get going!

That amazing feeling once you’ve done a proper workout is more than worth it! Even if you feel exhausted and rubbish when you start, you get that buzz and feel on top of the world when you are done, and what could be more motivating?

If I’m really struggling, I think about the ‘free’ snack I can have later with the calories I’ll have burnt off. This can also work if you get half way through and can’t continue... a chocolate or two is the perfect motivation to work a little harder!

Some people are visually stimulated, and if that’s you, motivate yourself by thinking of a new, slimmer, more toned you. Picture yourself in your bikini, and you’ll find yourself working a little harder!
