I had an old friend of mine ask me the other day how I can stay motivated to work out nearly everyday and continue to eat healthy. I merely told her, I have a goal, I know how I can get there. I know it’ll take some time but I’m dedicated to getting there. It’s been over 12 months but I’m addicted to how good my body feels that I want to keep this feeling up. 

I feel this quote by Jim Rohn explains a lot. If you really want something you’ll always find a way otherwise you’ll find an excuse. And that’s exactly what I told my friend. It’s as easy as that, set your mind to something and you can achieve it.

"When I’m out on that track, stadium lights shining on me, the crowd’s shouting drifting into oblivion, my heart beating like a drum, I feel powerful. When rain pours onto my exhausted body during a workout with 9 400s left, I feel strong. When the sun beats down on my body during the hardest run of my life, I feel humbled. Running is the only thing that has made me feel powerful, strong, and yet humbled all at the same time. And maybe that’s why I love it so much."

30 Day Challenges 
Have you seen these floating around the internet? I came across this one via AlyHeartsFitness (great insta account to follow) and I’m going to join her for this squat challenge (I started it yesterday). If you’re interested, join as well! I saved the image on my phone so I can refer back daily. Doing 50 squats in a row isn’t so terrible but once the numbers get higher think about spreading out the reps throughout the day (some when you wake up, some before bed, etc).
A quick note on these challenges; they aren’t enough on their own. I like them as an addition to my daily workouts, giving me a little routine to follow, but if you think you can do a bunch of squats each day and get a better butt, it’s probably not going to happen. Good fitness plans are well-rounded so a challenge like this is only one piece of the workout puzzle.
If you’re interested in checking out other 30 Day Challenges there is an entire site devoted to them, plus how-to info and recipes, find it HERE.
