Getting the motivation to move your body can be difficult sometimes.
We’ve all been there. We know we should do it. We set aside time to complete a workout. But we just can’t bring ourselves to do it.
And that’s the worst half of the battle, right? Once you’re in the midst of a workout, you think to yourself, “Why was I putting this off? I feel great! I feel energized! I achieved something!”
All you need to do is get there.
Desire to work out is important. You have it — it’s there — but you just feel like your internal battery is eternally drained.
So, what does it mean when you don’t feel like working out?
Well, it could be your eating habits…
Maintaining a poor diet makes your motivation and energy levels drop a lot. You may want to work out, but can’t because you feel drained.
Sounds like you? This means it’s time to reconsider the foods you’re putting into your body.
Food should help you feel energized — not slumped. Tons of processed foods, fast food, and any foods with loads of sugar are just a few examples of the type of foods you should avoid. Once you begin to avoid these foods, you’ll be on your way to long-lasting energy.
What’s a Well-Balanced Diet?
It helps improve and maintain your body’s overall health. A well-balanced diet means that the body is provided with essential nutrients to help it function correctly and appropriately.
Include these foods should be included: fresh vegetables and fruits, whole grains, nuts, and lean proteins.
When maintaining a well-balanced diet, your body works more efficiently. This means your body works harder to fight off sickness, diseases, infections, and, you guessed it: fatigue and low energy.
When your diet isn’t balanced, you’re more prone to lower energy. This is directly affecting your motivation.
So, yes — if you don’t feel like working out and you’re not consuming healthy foods, it’s your diet. It’s the reason you’re experiencing low energy levels and not achieving your workout and fitness goals.
But this can be changed.
Start with a well-balanced diet. Your body will thank you.
Avoid overeating empty calories like: donuts, cookies, cake, processed meat, energy drinks, soda, drinks with added sugar, ice cream, fries, fried food, pizza, etc.
Instead, try adding plenty of fresh fruits, vegetables, and lean proteins.
Just think of how you’ll feel better, AND more motivated. This will boost your mood all around. Plus you’ll feel a sense of achievement for maintaining a well-balanced diet and getting your workouts done.
