Let’s get a little Monday motivation going on! What keeps you motivated? What keeps you going? What keeps you pushing forward when there are bumps in the road? For me, it’s simple: I want to be the best version of myself. I want to wake up every morning knowing I did everything I could to improve myself both physically and mentally. I want to feel confident, I want to feel my muscles change, see my physique morph and know that I’m creating a healthier life for myself so I can live a better life with my family. That’s what keeps me motivated. And I refuse to let anything get in the way of those goals. Whether that means waking up early to workout or getting in a class right before bed, I continue to make it happen. Every day.

I think it’s important to recognize what exactly keeps you motivated. Is it weight loss or weight gain? Is it for your first 1/2 marathon? Is it to improve your health? Or to be a great role model for your children? Whatever it is, it’s important to remember that motivation. You recognized that motivation at one point so why would you ever forget about it? I’ll watch people at my gym or talk to people throughout my life that set one goal then completely forget about it a month later. But why?

If your goal is to feel better in your skin or change the outcome of your bloodwork or to show your kids that they can live a long, healthy life…than why would you simply forget about it? Health should never been forgotten about. It should never be swept under the rug. It should always be a priority. And if those motivations that once motivated you no longer are doing so, it may be time to rethink through some things. Make your health a priority – make yourself a priority. Find the motivation within yourself and never let fire die out. If you can continue to motivate yourself every single day, anything is possible. Remember that.

Oh, Hi! I’m Juli.

I’m a food hoarder. And a really bad dancer. If you don’t know me well, you will probably not understand my humor. Therefore, I apologize ahead of time. Thanks for listening to my ramblings of my ever-changing life and trusting my kitchen mishaps. Your trust in me is appreciated.

  1. Hey, Juli! I’ve been injured twice at CrossFit (back issues), I miss it so much but don’t think it’s the best place for me. I lose my shit and lift too heavy because the coaches are always pushing heavy, it just hasn’t worked out twice for me. Both times were BAD injuries taking me out for 6 months or more. I was wondering if you had suggestions on how to build muscle without CrossFit? What would be your next choice?

    1. any other sort of weight training program that you like. i’m not sure what’s available in your area but i talk about my other favorite gyms in this post: https://paleomg.com/finding-a-workout-that-works-for-you/ – the thing is, you can injure yourself in any movement or class where you’re not focusing on your form and listening to your body. i recommend getting in tune with those pieces because then you can work on the lifting piece without running into injuries!

    2. Hey Kelli!! Just a little word of advise, perhaps you could do ‘accessory work’ to strengthen your back?? 🙂 I have found this extremely beneficial. 🙂

      1. Hi! I should have been more specific specific in my question as I’ve still been weight training it’s just I miss the competitive aspect of crossfit. I do a ton of functional stability work now and am very healthy. The thing about crossfit compared to bootcamp style workouts is its periodized where they aren’t. I’m just getting sick of the body builder type circuits! Thank you for the suggestion!
