Because I normally go to the gym in the morning, I normally count breakfast as my pre-workout snack. However, if someday I go later in the day I like to have something like a banana or an apple. Nothing too heavy since it’s not good to work out on a full stomach.
After working out I often run home and eat everything I see because I am starving. But, for the sake of this post, let’s pretend that doesn’t happen that often. So, in another world I would eat something really healthy but filling like an apple with peanut butter, a green smoothie or a protein bar. Sometimes, I’ll decide to treat myself after a gym session so that I have a motivation to look froward to and that makes me push myself harder. Obviously, I won’t treat myself to a giant slice of chocolate cake with loads of icing as that would defeat the point of working out. But, I do treat myself to either smaller foods like macaroons or something healthy but that I normally wouldn’t buy because of the price (yes, I am talking about Whole Foods.)
Something else that I find essential when working out is music. Kim Kardashian once said she likes to listen to classic music when running, well, I love the Kardashians but how on earth can you work out to Mozart?! When I say music I mean, Rihanna, Drake and this kind of music. I like to listen to upbeat songs that keep me motivated and make me perform better.
These are the two most important things that I use to keep me motivated when I hit the gym, what are yours?
