11 Motivations To Get You To The Gym Today

I know it can be hard to find motivation to go to the gym, but I promise it's worth it when you go.

11 Motivations To Get You To The Gym Today

Everyone knows the struggle of staring at the gym as you walk past it, trying to remember the last time you actually entered inside and did a workout. But why is finding the motivation to workout so hard?

After all, going to the gym has all sorts of benefits and perks, you may have just forgotten since it's been so long since you've dared to walk inside. But fear not, because I'm here to remind you why you should go to the gym today.

1. You'll feel better about yourself

No more kicking yourself in the butt for not going to the gym because today you are actually going to go and it will make you feel amazing!

2. You can show off your new athletic outfit

Nothing will make you feel better about yourself than when you strut into the gym with brand new Gymshark leggings on.

3. Having dessert is truly deserved

You shouldn't have dessert too often, but it always feels more justified after a tough workout.

4. Weirdly enough, you'll have more energy afterward

It's almost like working out is good for you or something.

5. You might meet a cute person there

Maybe fate will bring your future partner to the gym and you'll bump into each other as you both try to use the same weight rack. You never know.

6. You don't have to worry because not everyone is staring at you

I know it can feel like everyone's eyes are on you when you're at the gym, which is a major reason to skip a workout. But I promise, no one else at the gym is worried about you. They're just doing what they have to do like you are.

7. Post-workout smoothies are the bomb

Yum yum yum.

8. Water always tastes better at the gym

I swear this is true. Hate drinking water? You'll love drinking it while you're working out.

9. You can post on your story that you're being healthy now

Isn't that what it's all about? Not really, but it's still fun to show off to your friends that you're being healthy.

10. You can feel confident in that sexy outfit in a few months

Maybe you aren't feeling the best about yourself right now, but working out can do wonders for your self esteem, so hopefully you'll feel confident in that cute outfit sometime soon.

11. You can take a day off soon, just not today

Contrary to public belief, you do not need to workout every single day. In reality, your body needs a day of rest so your muscles can recuperate and continue to grow. So just keep reminding yourself that you get a break in a few days.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
