If you’re feeling unmotivated or discouraged about reaching your fitness goals, don’t fear! It’s totally normal to reach points in your journey where progress slows down or even plateaus. Taking a moment to stop, reevaluate your situation and break through the mental and physical roadblocks holding you back is key. Check out these three common reasons that may be holding you back from reaching your fitness goals and our favorite ways to overcome them!
- You Dread Your Workout

2. You Don’t Know Your Why
Big goals usually require big lifestyle changes, which can feel challenging and overwhelming if your “why” isn’t extremely clear and meaningful. Define why you’re embarking on this journey. Maybe it’s to become healthier so you can run around with your kids with ease or perhaps it’s wanting to feel confident in an outfit you’ve never felt confident in. Constantly remind yourself of those reasons and think of how you’ll feel when you’ve finally reached your goals. If your “why” means enough to you, you’ll inevitably feel the motivation and dedication needed to conquer the conquest you began.
3. You Try Everything at Once
Give yourself TIME. So many people begin their health journey by going all out with crazy food restrictions and aggressive exercise plans. If you don’t ease yourself in, you’re bound to get burnt out and ultimately not reach your goals. Slowly incorporate habit changes into your lifestyle and allow yourself ample time to get used to them. Remember, you’re wanting to develop healthier habits that you can maintain. Give yourself grace on days that don’t go as planned and try to enjoy the process as best you can.
