Where You Find Motivation

“If you really want to do something, you’ll find a way. If you don’t, you’ll find an excuse.” –Jim Rohn



Want to know the quickest way to get motivated to work out? Imagine not being physically able to. I will never forget what it felt like to not be able to walk. This has happened multiple times because I’m clumsy af.🤣 To not have the ability to physically put all my weight on one foot was one of the most emotional feelings I’ve ever experienced, it definitely didn’t help that I was super hormonal and PREGNANT🤷🏼‍♀️

Let me back track. It was the spring of 2016, the sun was shining and Jersey and I were going outside to play. Just another typical day, or so I thought. With Jersey on one hip and a bunch of chalk in hand, I missed the step and completely rolled my ankle. Snap. I fell, dropped her and keep in mind I’m 6/7 months pregnant. I couldn’t get up.

I had to call my husband at work, as I sat on the front lawn, bawling, unable to move, cuddling our daughter who is also in hysterics. I’m sure he will never forget that moment (neither will I). He rushed home and we rushed to the hospital.

Long story, short - Baby, Jersey and Mom were all safe. Only I managed to sprain my ankle, BADLY. I was on crutches for over a month. Imagine being on crutches, not being able to walk, and having to pee every 30 seconds...😳🤦🏼‍♀️ I felt like my life was in shambles, the world was ending HAH. Hormones are lovely aren’t they? As soon as I could start putting weight on my foot again, I started working out. It was my only way to keep sane. Not being able to even walk, had me in tears everyday (my poor husband). Working out has been my stress reliever for two years, so not being able to sweat, left me an extremely hot mess emotional Mama.

So when I’m feeling too lazy to exercise, I remind myself of how lucky I am that I CAN. I remind myself of how blessed I am that I have the ability to press play and most days, that’s enough!💪🏼 You should try it too
