Believe me, there are days that I’m in a bad mood and have low energy on my drive to teach my “Fit Momma” Stroller Workout class in San Diego CA, but the minute I step out of my car my mind-state has changed and I’m excited to teach class. I have trained myself to get into a positive state. Before I get out of the car I take a few deep breaths and I say to myself, “It’s my choice and I’m happy to be here. I will give these mommas a great workout and help them reach their goals.” I recommend using a similar technique to get yourself in a positive mind set prior to beginning your workout. Try this simple exercise before you workout to get the best results. Close your eyes and take 3 deep breathes. While your eyes are closed tell yourself something like, “I’ve made a choice to take care of myself. I am committed to reaching my weight loss goals.” By doing this exercise you will be more focused on your goals because you have acknowledged that you made the choice to workout!
